    I worked at InnovaSystems International full-time (less than a year)


    Innova is a great place to work if you demand a sense that the people with and for whom you work really care - about you, your career, your health, and your family - and that your work really matters. Supporting the NSS is extremely rewarding, and the military overtones of the company's culture mean emphasis on things that are often overlooked or afterthoughts - e.g. PRTs to encourage physical fitness and life balance, Halloween for the whole Innova family at Chris and Lynn's house etc.


    Defense ups & downs with the political climate. Bleeding-edge technology sometimes not being an option where it has not been blessed by DoD et al.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategy to diversify the company's interests such that defense ups & downs are not a concern. For example, bring Inspire! to Android.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at InnovaSystems International.

    The application process was good. I was brought into a room with 3 or 4 people and asked a series of questions. It lasted about an hour. Most of the questions revolved around cultural fit. Some technical questions. I was asked to talk about my history as a developer. They are an agile shop. I was then told that someone would get back to me. 3 weeks later after several phone calls of leaving messages to the HR Manger I finally received an offer letter.

    Negotiation Details
    The HR manager finally sent me an offer letter that was well below the market value of my position according to He gave me some lame explanation when he finally called me back about why he wishes he could give me more but this is a privately held company. I then had to email the HR person back about how I was not happy with the offer. It was 12K less the mean for my position. t took him forever to respond. After nearly six weeks I finally accepted an offer.
