I worked at New World Systems

Pros

Great 3 month start up plan
Strong product
Great technology

Cons

The start up plan was a simple check list and a task that management did because they had to. No real support for long term success.
Management is fragmented
Chase all opportunities even those they know are losers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide training and leadership to bring employees the best possibility of success
hire better demo teams
Focus on high probability wins

    I have been working at New World Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall, I think a lot of the reviews on here are a bit extreme, so here is an honest review from a developer's point of view.

    + A lot of great people work here
    + The software is interesting
    + Good befits
    + Quarter pop

    Cons

    A lot of the things people have said on here are true:

    + Long Hours

    + Poor pay -- though this varies A LOT. NEGOTIATE YOUR SALARY. They will low-ball you. Counter-offer.

    + VERY poor managerial decisions.

    + Software is perpetually sold to customers as capable things that it DOESN'T DO. Very complicated and complex things that it doesn't do. Hard deadlines are set by someone you've never met or talked to. When that deadline hits, the software ships to customers regardless of whether or not it works. You will not be told this deadline, and if you are, it is probably a fake deadline to make you work harder.

    + No upward potential at all. They RARELY promote from within. Do not expect to come in a "Junior Solution Consultant" -- Yes that's a title... -- and ever become a head developer

    + Process for every miniscule business function. Some teams literally have substantially more managers than developers.

    + Micromanagement

    + Vastly different working environment for different employees. If you are in the profit center or future profit center of the organization, you will be given nicer desks, the flexibility to arrive to work whenever you want, work from home, and the ability to spend hours of the day playing ping pong (literally). If you manage to get on this "elite" team, your experience at the company will be vastly different.

    + Workforce is highly fragmented. The company is divided in half (Aeigis/Logos) and then into "Core"/"Vision" (bug fixes vs new development). The vision team is given preferential treatment which causes a lot of animosity from the Core team.

    + There is NO communication across teams -- you must go through your manager (process for everything).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some level of transparency and consistency to the company

    Good Work , Bad pay

    I have been working at New World Systems full-time

    Pros

    Not a bad place to start
    Other developers are good at their work.
    You will learn a lot working on the products if either you have not worked on that technology before or if you are a fresh grad

    Cons

    Starting salary for fresh grads is lower than the average by almost 10%
    Pay raises are bad , i have seen people with a few years of experience make what should have been paid as new college grads
    There are about 5-10 key people who are extremely overworked and if they ever left the place would fall apart.
    The CEO is so money conscious he believes that hiring interns or even providing training to new college grads is a waste of money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more
