Good management and culture. Willing to share ideas and thoughts with these kind of environment. All employee's are getting their chances to grow and reach their goals

Poor management and culture

The middle and higher management have no grasp of what is happening on the ground. If there's any issue, it's the low ranked staff who are fixing it. There will be a lot of emails asking for updates but none that offer any help. No lead or directions from the managers. You will be expected to fend for yourself. New tasks will continuously come in but there won't be any proper environment or documentation. No OT pay, no recognition, lots of politics. If you're a yes man who is willing to work long hours, be available all the time and not question anything, you will survive here. Culture is really bad, team members don't get along, there's no team spirit, lots of blame game. It's difficult to go on leave and the salary increment is low.


Stable job, decent pay


Long hours, bad culture, no leadership

Working in ncs

Depends on the project posted to. Some project teams are competitive and finding scapegoat when it comes to appraisal time. But benefits are alright, has 18 days annual leave .


Has company canteen, benefits are good


Can’t switch project as easily

No career, but good for fresh graduate. bonus wise not that awesome mostly 1 month salary increment 50-100$ working non stop for projects very difficult to get permanent, after direct contract the HRD always say the headcount is freeze (the same song as always)

Stable company with good benefits

I have been in the company since 2011. Benefits are good but management is just ok. They also offer good training and education for career growth and self improvement.

Work/Life Balance but career growth is limited

Work/Life Balance but career growth is limited, Job culture is quite ok, team members can work together and help each other when some one in need. Management depends on PM, different PM has different style.

Challenging with a high spirit

I started working in NCS in November 2008 as a Application Consultant in a banking domain project for 4 years and promoted to Senior Application Consultant. The Company is giving a way to all the staff to uplift their learnings by providing them trainings.

You can join government project in this company. Besides the technology, i have learned most is how to communicate with customers. For my project, need a lot of OT at night or during weekends.

Great Place to start as a fresh graduate

Great Place to start as a fresh graduate. The kind of day you will have in NCS pretty much is correlated to the kind of project you are assigned to. The company encourages continuous learning, and provides endless learning opportunities for the employees.


Lunch Talks, Learning Opportunities.

so so company

the pay is ok, the working hour is long, the supervisor is fierce, every thing is so particulars (not flexible),,, OT is a norm, and the job scope of developer is very big (from end to end), meaning you need to take care of requirement gathering, design, coding, testing and deployment


training, exposure of end to end project


Ot, no work life balance, stressful

Good for start

NCS is the biggest ICT company in Singpare in term of the number of hired. It gives lots of opportunities to those who has just entered IT industry without much experience.

Good for fresh grads, but don't stay for long

1) Friendly environment to work in 2) Extensive training for fresh hires 3) Projects typically use old and/or legacy technology 4) No wage mobility and transparency 5) Tedious and ineffective performance rating system
