I worked at Novotus full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Senior leadership is pretty transparent about the good, bad and ugly and share information regularly with employees. Opportunity to work with and utilize a wide variety of recruiting tools and resources. If there is something you need which the company does not already have to help do your job better, they are supportive. Proactive about training and professional development. Good work/life balance. Good structure and processes in place to make it easy for you to do your job. Leadership and managers genuinely care about their employees and are supportive to their needs and want to create a good, fun work environment.

Cons

Although there is an opportunity for performers to advance to leadership or other various roles within the company, the company is very conservative and growth opportunities are very slow to realize. Employees are very hard workers and are committed to their jobs, however, seems like meeting aggressive quarterly goals takes away from people having fun and really loving their jobs. Benefits are just ok and are not very competitive. Has seen a fair amount of turnover. Extremely metrics driven; some managers can be micro managers.

    I worked at Novotus as a contractor (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 Management

    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 (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 Management

    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.
