I worked at Novotus as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Novotus arms their recruiters with all the tools necessary to be successful. From weekly sourcing meetings, lunch and learns, and "novelopment", any recruiter (no matter what level) can gain further insight into the world of recruiting and can become a better recruiter. The associate recruiter program is a great way for non-experienced recruiters to get their feet wet and gain experience in recruiting, sourcing, client management etc. They have team building exercises (like pizza making contests) throughout the year that promote team building and cross pollination between teams. Flex hours, ping pong table, t.v's and Myu's bbq are some other factors that make Novotus one of the best places to work for in Austin.

Cons

The cons of Novotus are minimal at best. Every company out there is going to have challenges. Novotus does a tremendous job of identifying challenges they are facing and correcting them quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the main thing, the main thing! Senior leadership is a huge part of what makes Novotus an amazing place to work for. They instill company values in their employees that are not just good for work, but can translate very well into everyday life.

    I have been working at Novotus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great company characterized by cooperation, helping each other grow professionally, great values and culture, an just good people.

    Cons

    The compensation isn't competitive and is rather stagnant compared to the rest of the industry. There are also no annual merit pay increases. There are quarterly bonuses which are nice but are modest in size.

    Being a talent acquisition firm the company places a huge emphasis on extraverted qualities to the detriment of more introverted individuals who do not fit the extrovert ideal. They're trying to better understand individual strengths but have a long way to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to make your compensation program more competitive, especially for junior employees, and seek to better leverage the strengths and unique differences of your employees.

    I worked at Novotus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many employee niches, you will definitely find people to work with that you will hang out with after work. If you are just looking for a job to pay the bills, than this place is a good start.

    Cons

    No consistency - too much variability (e.g. hiredesk versus iCIMs). There are some really good technologies for some projects, and awful technologies in others. Strategy and forward thinking aren't strong points. If you are wanting a career then look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't beg your staff to vote for you to get staffing awards. Stomp out politics - it's too small of a company to have them. The hiring and firing processes need a lot of work. Too many interviews for entry level positions, too much drama around letting people go.
