Company culture that embraces sycophants, weasels and nepotism.

I worked at New World Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are bright, insightful, decent people working in the "trenches".

Go to work from 8:30 to 5:30 everyday and you may manage to survive.

There is free fruit and yogurt every Friday for the trodden masses.

Senior management is duplicitous but not quite as sly as they believe.

Cons

Hours are valued far more so than productivity.

Archaic - in terms of both the company's management style and it's product development philosophy. Falling further and further behind it's competitors from a technological standpoint..

Do not use work email for any personal communications - it is monitored and because it is technically the "property" of the company it can and will be used against you at will. The same way you will be terminated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great leaders surround themselves with, and recognize, even greater talent. Not so here. Because of this shortcoming this pseudo empire is destined to implode. Leadership is old and out of touch with the customer and employee societies it relies upon. The lapdogs who desire to be successors to the throne are professionally inept, unscrupulous and worse, cowardly. A kingdom built upon this foundation will only crumble.

    Tough company to work for with highly unlikely chance of moving up to better jobs.

    Pros

    If you like to travel 11 months out of the year, this job could be for you. The benefits and PTO are good. There is a long three month training program for new hires.

    Cons

    The company is very "old school" in the way they do things causing for lack of good leadership. This can be a very high stress job. Even though there is a long training program, the software itself is very difficult to learn and seems to have an excessive amount of issues. This causes working in the support center to be difficult. There is very little documentation on the software, creating a difficult environment for training. The pay scale is quite low for the amount of stress employees at this company are under. Several employees in the support center always seem to have a work load that they cannot manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more documentation. Change the method of training. It is not easy to learn something when someone is walking you through a software program for several hours in a day. Make the training more hands on. There could stand to be a little more flexibility in terms of travel schedules. Need to increase pay for the amount of stress that employees in the support center are feeling.

    Pros

    Free fruit on Friday! Quarter pop.

    Cons

    Many negative people, no real growth, they lie about incentives and bonuses. A lot of people come and go- more than normal. You are expected to work 50 or more hours a week. Time off and vacation- forget it. It's all lie and cheat your way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to hire "upper management".
