Cons

    I worked at Novaspect full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Friendly Environment - Provides Overtime to meet project goals - Starting Salary was Good - A great learning environment for young and developing engineers. - 50% Chance the person you report to is not in the office you work out off.

    Cons

    - Development was lacking for mid to experienced engineers. - As starting salary was good, it progressed extremely slowly. - Management does little to hold on to younger engineering staff. - Expect to do at least 3 peoples job fully be able to meet your bonus goals. - 50% Chance the person you report to is not in the office you work out off.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on losing dead weight and finding individuals who can step up to the challenges your customers present to your organization. Work harder to retain these talented individuals. For a very republican focused management team they are very democratic with how bonus's and raises are administered. -Send middle management to some leadership development courses. Just because they make amazing engineers does not make them worth a dam when it comes to being a capable manager. - Having Micro-manages that don't understand the demographics of each region, along with the customer requirements. Reluctance to travel to Schaumburg by most of the Twin city based management team.
