    I worked at Capital Novus

    Pros

    Not many if any at all.

    Cons

    Senior management and CEO yell at employees, call them names, and denigrate employees publically. Ideas are not listened to and the pay to work here is not commensurate with the marketplace. The CEO and CFO will look at all turns to not pay their sales people, support staff, and others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of business now and stop treating employees poorly.

    Pros

    The only pro is that I cannot see this company being around in 5 years.

    Cons

    Worst upper level management, holding visas hostage to maintain staff, degrading and humiliating staff, horrible benefits, volatile managers, emotional decisions made by upper level management, conflict of interest with the president and VP of HR being husband and wife.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop... just stop existing.

    Pros

    None as the CEO is not competent.

    Cons

    CEO thinks he knows everything and stops employees from bringing in good ideas. He does not compensate staff and looks to denigrate employees. He tries to make you feel like you owe him everything. Not a place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO needs to step away and let the staff actually do their jobs.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Flexible scheduling allowed me to attend children's school functions. Management cares about the well-being of all the employees. They treat you like family. Your handwork pays off here since management gives great intensives and salary increases.

    Cons

    many previous employees took advantage of getting paid high salaries for not doing anything. They are the ones that put the horrible comments that are absolutely not true. They are disgruntled employees that who just came to work to get a paycheck and pretending to work from home but never did anything except take advantage of the company

    I worked at Capital Novus

    Pros

    There are some talented employees who try hard to instill positive changes in the way the company is managed. Most have been fired.

    Cons

    Management has no leadership skills, no business development sense and no desire to change. They are distrustful of all employees and treat them poorly, often humiliating them publicly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen. Be respectful. Stop nepotism. Learn humility.
