IT Support Specialist (Former Employee), Reston, VA – February 13, 2013
Pros: easy going vacation time, not bothered while at home(generally), mostly relaxed environment
Cons: advancement is difficult, once you can do your job they are loathed to teach anything else
Can be a hard work place with sometimes overwhelming amounts of work that needs doing, while at the same time no one seems to know your doing it. There is not much credit thrown around but blame is in plenty supply and no one want to take it while everyone wants to dish it out. Nci is always on top of training for the job you have been assigned, but – more... if you want to learn more you'll have to do that on your own. Because of those things it is difficult to show your ready to advance, they also like to hire new people for that new higher position you have been waiting for rather then promoting you. Vacation is plentiful and rarely will anyone bother you while your on it, also the people are very lax on when you ask for it no two week notice needed, 24 hours is more than enough! People are mostly pretty friendly. – less
The company was exceptional until a management/ownership change took place.
Bundling Operator (Current Employee), Elizabethton, TN – January 9, 2013
Pros: overtime hours available
Cons: it would be an advantage to have notice of projected hours.
I enjoyed my job at this company for several years. Now that management/ownership has changed I find that the environment, policies and work ethic of the company is less than desirable now. I report to work at four am every morning. I do not know each day what the schedule may hold, some days we work eight hours , some days we work sixteen hours.The – more... job I am on now is very repetitive in some aspects; I am responsible for packing out specific parts to "package" steel buildings for shipping. I select the parts use a fork lift to move them, strap them to pallets, load them on a trailer and use a yard truck to move the trailer to the shipping yard. I use a hand held scanner to scan out parts for the order and a computer to check status and download completed work orders for shipping. I have several good friends at the company, people that I have worked with for years and I value their friendships. It is very hard to see them with such low morale mostly for the same reasons I have stated. The job is very physically demanding the hardest mental task is keeping up with the job and bundle numbers as they are not all assembled and sent at the same time. The camaraderie I have with some of my co-workers is my favorite part of the social aspect of the job. I enjoy being able to move around doing this job. I also like the extra hours we get during some seasons. I have three children and a wife and I am always appreciative of being able to make more money. – less

A typical day at work is very fast paced envirnment. There are deadlines that need to met and on occassion we were given very short notice to meet those deadlines. We never failed to do so. I learned alot of different skills in this environment. I learned to mulitask and work quickly and sufficiently. I also learned more and more about the various software – more... I used as well as the positions I held. My coworkers are all very hard workers and we all worked together towards our main objective and that was to get the job done. The hardest part of the job was worrying if we would be able to get it all done,. but we never failed in that. Which leads to the most enjoyable part of the job, and that was knowing we did succeed and the feeling of accomplishment. – less
Customer Service (Former Employee), Vestal, NY – September 25, 2012
Pros: health insurance, short travel distance less gas
Cons: having to shut-off services to people
An eight hour day forty hour week with challenges ever changing. I enjoyed being able to help others as I would want to be treated. I would help keep service on but at times would have to implement shut-off of electric service which was both required but difficult. I learned a different type of compassion for others which still is used in my everyday.
Productive and challenging place to grow and develop in the area of cyber!
