I worked at Nova Biomedical

Pros

1. The employees are very family oriented (not management so much)
2. Parking is good, right behind the building
3. Location is good, in a Tech hub area, without being on the traffic side
4. Cafe on site
5. Tuition reimbursement

Cons

1. 2 weeks time off (includes sick and personal days)
2. Offered tuition reimbursement, but not for online classes (even for those that traveled 50% of the time)
3. No comp time (only applied to specific employees)
4. Low salary increases
5. Different policies for different employees within the same overall department

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be fair across all departments. Ensure that employees are happy and really care whether or not they are. Be loyal to the employees that are loyal to you.

    You'll like it, but there will be some "shouting against the tide" moments.

    I have been working at Nova Biomedical full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation decent. Good location. Subsidized cafeteria. Friendly work culture. A great way to get experience with a growing industry. Generous vacation and retirement plans that encourage retention. PLENTY of overtime if you want it.

    Cons

    Strong workaholic culture at all levels. Very poor training, coupled with an unreasonable expectation that you be completely versed in all of the company's operations from day one. The culture is very resistant to change and reliant on institutional memory -- processes are outdated, undisciplined, and undocumented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs stronger investment in IT resources so we can work more efficiently. We bought this SAP system and no one knows what it can do. Encourage mid-level leadership to innovate and experiment with new processes. This is a great company with great products, but we're going to get left behind if we don't move into the 21st century.

    I worked at Nova Biomedical full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great technology. Great owners. Has the products to help patients but only thinks dollars and markets differently. No customer service.

    Cons

    Bad sales management. Environment is hostile and negative. Middle management does not know products very well. Large turn over of staff, especially sales. Burn out! Employees are always watching their backs. This is a bad environment to be successful in.
