Pros

New World is willing to give young employees opportunities to grow and challenge themselves. There is more emphasis placed on competence than who you have your lunch with.

Cons

The company owner doesn't have trust in his employees to do their jobs when his back is turned and creates policies that are counter productive. He's overly involved in details that shouldn't matter to a CEO (e.g. he has to sign off on all changes to seating).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Run the company the way you know things should be done and not the way you're told to from the 6th floor. Lie if you have to, but let the employees work and not worry about what "Larry thinks".

    Pros

    Not many pros at New World. They paid my cell phone bill and I got free apples in the mornings.

    Cons

    This just in on March 13....Another round of mindless firings. This seems to be the norm at New World Systems. Hire you and fire you without cause. It might be because they have that nifty at will employment clause and they want to use it up.

    I worked at New World Systems

    Pros

    - Average to better than average compensation and benefits
    - Pop machine
    - We don't have to wear our New World uniforms anymore, we finally got semi-casual dress
    - The work is good, when we are allowed to work

    Cons

    - The company is getting bigger and has officially become a bureaucracy
    - Too many middle managers/dev leads and too much process, think Office Space
    - Developers are not respected
    - Daily standup meetings that don't accomplish anything
    - The company is very slow and inefficient, customers often wait months for problem resolution
    - Overly corporate culture
    - Too many egos
    - Moving index cards around on a board doesn't really accomplish anything
    - If a minimum 45 hr work week is expected, then pay us 110% of our salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Take away a lot of the process, like daily standup meetings and general Agile development practices, just because someone read it in a book doesn't mean it's a great idea
    - Take the politicians out of the middle management and dev lead roles, they are stifling the development team
    - Real developers want to be technically challenged, we want to wear the proverbial white lab coat, stop trying to turn developers into sales people
