New World Systems is not as bad as several of these reviews make it out to be.

Solutions Consultant (Former Employee) Troy, MI

ProsModern technologies are employed (Lab Management, TFS, .NET, Continuous Integration, Patterns and Practices Frameworks, etc). Assignments are interesting and enjoyable.

Some developers at New World are very knowledgeable and are team players. There are tremendous growth opportunities to learn new skills. Employees are generally friendly and easy to work with. Managers are open to discussions and do consider employee input.

Employees are very dedicated and work very hard to meet deadlines and customer needs. The typical work ethic of an employee here vastly exceeds that of an average employee at another development organization.

ConsMy bigest complaint is that number of hours worked by an employee seems to be valued more than an employees contributions. At a minimum 45 hours of work per week are expected. Most valued employees typically work 50 hours per week. Employees are expected to put long hours in, but the organization does not support true flex time. If the work expectations and work arrangements were slightly improved, most employee dissatisfaction would be resolved.

Leadership positions seem to be routinely filled by hiring external candidates instead of promoting from within. This is unfortunate for employees who desire career growth opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider changing some HR policies in order to retain employees.
