What project team assign

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
tasks tight deadlines and new tasks keep pouring in . lead dont know how to lead a team. Lead hide behind the staff on issues and mininal leadership. Good team work can survive and grow, some managers ignore HR policies and do shady actions to treat staff unfairly. Hardest part is lack of experienced technical staff to lead the team. most managers have weak skills and dont respect technical engineer explanation and wanted to explain things that they wanted to hear. Gain experience

Pros

good team if very lucky

Cons

lead managers steal staff credit and refuse to recognize staff achievements. unfair appraisal rating

Working Culture is not good

Working culture is not good. NCS won't pay for OT. NCS not allow to utilize comp-off leaves. No career growth. I am having 27 days comp-off in my hand now but not allowing me to utilize now. No credit for hard work.

They'll throw you away if you don't work OT

They don't pay for your OT. It's not legal to work for more than 44 hours or on off days without any compensation, but they'll do it anyway because most of the staff are either contracted from a third party or from India, who would have no choice but to obey the ridiculously long hours since they would not like to go back to their country.The HR does not care if you worked hard enough or not if you don't produce results. They don't care for the reasons you aren't able to perform for your work. They'll have you out of the project as soon as they find a replacement who's willing to do your laborous work for longer hours.The cafeteria has alright food for decent prices but I can't imagine anyone wanting to work here with what they offer, if they knew about the hours and how they treta their employees.

Pros

An okay cafeteria.

Cons

Long hours, lack of care a!out their own employees, lacking good leadership for their projects, horrendous pay and no OT compensation.

Secure and safe learning environment for fresh grads, lots of useful (and secret) projects for probably all govt branches

Highly evolved systems of management are in place. Working culture varies from project to project depending on your project manager, but my experience is great. As a developer I have lots of autonomy to decide how to achieve my objectives and ample time to complete tasks. As of 2019-2021, NCS has provided a very structured employee training program known as NuCleuS, where it periodically sends full-time staff on short courses at NUS to slowly gain more certification (and ultimately get masters at the end of 5 years).On the "leaves" side of things, NCS provides a generous 18 days of annual leave, with off-in-lieu if public holidays fall on weekends. There's also birthday leave, family care leave, marriage leave, volunteerism leave, skills upgrading leave etc.Middle management may vary in quality by team, but the upper management are all really good people with lots of experience.

Pros

Comfortable and clean toilets (with tissue dispenser and automatic doors), modern cashless staff canteen.

Cons

A lot of responsibility when working for govt, such that it could necessitate occassional overtime.

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 .

Pros

Has company canteen, benefits are good

Cons

Can’t switch project as easily

fun colleagues on site. Management freedom is good as well

happened that the on-site is 15 mins bus ride from my home. Immediate colleagues was helpful to me when i needed help, they are very approachable as well. I will say my stay there was longer and bearable due to them.Naviaids is way more relaxing but stressful when faults is up, Radio and PSS are the tougher ones.HQ facility is well provided but i am stationed at site so didnt get to use much.

Pros

freedom from management visual, on-sites are near home area

Cons

need to standby 24hours and paid 150 for that, Plus NCS is quick to give lowest banding which resulted in $0 bonus in my first year there

Training provided, nice environment for fresh graduates

Training provided every quarterly, but must be a fast learner. Recommend for fresh graduates good places to start the career. If under direct contract or permanent staff company will provided a lot benefit including discount of Singtel phone package and 50 SGD allowance of Singtel phone package.

Pros

Training provided, good benefit.

Cons

Fast phase working environment.

Lousy place with lousy management - toxic and bureaucratic

do not join NCS, don't listen to the HR. their mere pawns and puppets by the toxic and bureaucratic so called directors. nobody does any work inside exceptpushing the work around to the newbies who join. those that are on top keep changing the new staff to do the work so they can stay on top. the HR can't do anything even if you found the place to be toxic and bureaucratic. it is inward facing and NCS don't value talent. please share this out to all those who are talented. DO NOT join NCS and NCS CE.

Pros

nothing

Cons

long hours, anyhow manage you, push all the work and all the blame to you, toxic and bureaucratic

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.
