Featured review

NCS selected this as a representative review
Great place to start off for fresh graduates. Attended their fireside chats at my university and was intrigued by the vision and purpose of the company, so decided to join the Nucleus programme. When i joined, i found that the management is very progressive and visionary. The Nucleus programme is structured and there are a lot of opportunities.


Great place to start


Challenging work, but fulfilling.

Not recommended

NCS have terribly poor management. Everything is managed poorly, the work is not well assigned to every employees. NCS staff are very rude and uses vulgarity when speaking. The staff treat others with no respect and have no discipline. The company also did not give employees enough work and life balance. Keep forcing employees to work overtime. I will not recommend people to join this company.

NCS HR or management dont care at all.

NCS dont really care about the well being of their engineers, all they want to obtain is the customer's are happy. No work life balance at all! Almost everyday is long working hours. Even when you are on leave you're required to answer your customer's call. The management don't care if you work load is high and unmanageable already. You're are entitled to have time off because of working for long hours, but really impossible to claim it because of high work load. There are no standard for change management system. Only pros are you will be managing different platforms and experience will definitely increase. Overall I don't recommend you to work in NCS, unless you don't have a choice.

Overall NCS is a good company. There are some Managers who needs more leadership skills. It is good to practice a work life balance at work but sometimes with foreigners it does not meet the expectations on what it is cascaded.

Unbalance company

Increment is low, unbalance work culture, unbalance manpower with too many contract foreigners. management says they won't fire or dismiss anyone but when project is out of money or not earning, they will sell it off including letting go of those contract staff handling the project.

Confidential in every aspects as serving official personnel.

Challenging and skill talents to daily workforce in managing younger Engineers to their assignment. Prompt delivery to clients requirement must be adhere.


Independent job management


Willing to travel to various job site to solve issues.

Productive work place

It is a very productive workplace where the environment is also friendly and able to make you learn a lot of new things and focus on your work. There are definitely difficulties in adapting t the start but overall it is a nice place to work at

Nice environment

Its a good starting job for someone who wants to learn some basic IT troubleshooting, as clients will have many issues, and you will have to learn how to troubleshoot the problems on your own

Productive and fun

I stayed for almost 7 years in NCS project although i am not a direct contract but i find it rewarding when it comes to project exposure and also had a good relationship with colleagues. PM was eager to give new project in case one just ended.

Management not good

Management doesn't give a rat about your work. Always demanding stuff. When face with issue, non of the management is willing to help, only know to ask what the issue and no solution given to us.

individual site project mananges differently

Account managers require many job reports but are picky on the way a time sheet is filled. You may do alot of overtime but the timesheet is done in excel sheet format and is locked and structured in such a way that you may fill up to only five rows of overtime or 4 rows if there are 30 days in a month instead of 31 days. The managers say they will fight for overtime done but in actual fact you I'll not be compensated for the ovettime

NCS Review

Good Service company to work with. Low chances of getting permanent though. Most of Local Banks are their clients. Projects are driven by Client mostly and outsourcing of resources to Clients.

Work in School Environment.

Work in Client school environment with 5 day work and Saturday as Standby. all scheduled as Shift & day work assign by company client. Annual Leave given 14 day per a year contract. Difficulty to get leave will be main issue. Would probably not get any leave during school holiday due to client request. Individual KPI performance requirement is extremely high.
