    You'll like it, but there will be some "shouting against the tide" moments.

    I have been working at Nova Biomedical full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation decent. Good location. Subsidized cafeteria. Friendly work culture. A great way to get experience with a growing industry. Generous vacation and retirement plans that encourage retention. PLENTY of overtime if you want it.

    Cons

    Strong workaholic culture at all levels. Very poor training, coupled with an unreasonable expectation that you be completely versed in all of the company's operations from day one. The culture is very resistant to change and reliant on institutional memory -- processes are outdated, undisciplined, and undocumented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs stronger investment in IT resources so we can work more efficiently. We bought this SAP system and no one knows what it can do. Encourage mid-level leadership to innovate and experiment with new processes. This is a great company with great products, but we're going to get left behind if we don't move into the 21st century.

    Associate Scientist Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Nova Biomedical in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met with three different people. 30 min with one, 1 hour with one, and 30 min with last. Other than the person I spoke with for an hour it was just friendly chatting without many questions about my past or prior work experience. Interviewer #2 was more serious and asked all the standard questions.

    Greatest Strength, greatest weakness, what's difficult for you, why are interested in this position, etc

    She really studied my resume and looked for specific points on it to ask me about.

    Interview Questions
