I worked at New World Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

If you are somewhat competent, work 45+ hours consistently, and don't question managerial decisions, this is a stable place to work. Hours worked were seemingly the most significant factor in determining employee's performance and organizational value.

Cons

Employees are overworked and forced to work long hours. When you interview with HR. it is made clear that 45 hours of "ideal time" is the expected minimum effort. Frequently, poor managerial decisions are made to maximize revenue or meet release dates, which requires workerbees to work long hours.

There is little long term vision at this predominately vb6 software shop. Expediency was valued over quality and long term viability of solutions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to your lower level employees. Managers seldom spoke with subordinates or attended daily status meetings.

    I worked at New World Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant work-staff.
    Helpful co-workers.
    Incredible work ethic from a majority of those working.
    Open to innovation.
    Most positions provide an opportunity to travel.
    Employment opportunities outside of the company are numerous and well paying; you will be recruited by another company and well paid for it.

    Cons

    Unimpressive salaries, bonuses and compensation.
    Company owner does little to inspire confidence.
    Contract says 40 hours, they require 55+ hours and will threaten with dismissal if not met.
    No compensation or even appreciation for herculean efforts.
    Travel percentages are a work of fiction; 75% travel means 2 weeks not traveling for New World counts weekends and holidays as days not traveling.
    Managers are generally tasked with sales related tasks and are AWOL for managing their departments. Complete and dismissive disregard for their own customers/user-base.
    Massive employee turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By using an IQ test and aggressive university recruitment, New World Systems can always find new, brilliant workers. This should not mean that as a company they can all but lie to employees about the work contracts they've signed. Giving five days paid vacation and

    There is a reason that everyone who has left New World has said it is the best thing that has ever happened to them.

    I have been working at New World Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros - Good experience, decent software, intelligent people at the company

    Cons

    The work environment is very cold. Employees are expected to work long hours, yet on the flip-side there is no flex time, there are very strict policies on needing time off for appointments etc. It goes both ways, and New World doesn't understand that. They also are more concerned about revenue making then anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revenue making is necessary, but it can come back to bite you. If you don't have employees, you don't have a company. Unhappy employees leads to unhappy customers which leads to no revenue.
