    I have been working at Nova Biomedical full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company still maintains a smaller company feel, despite its growth to a moderate size. The daily presence of the owners is an indication of committment from the top down. The employees are very dedicated and loyal, with many have been employed here for 10, 20, and 30 plus years.

    Cons

    The compensation can sometimes lag a little too much behind accomplishments and assumed responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more focus on training and advancement.

    I worked at Nova Biomedical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lunch Room, Good Parking, they treat you to lunch when working OT

    Cons

    Watch yourself if you apply there, due to they are very nice when you walk in the door then the fun begins, there is no training at all, you watch one of the employees (trainer) do their production for 2 weeks with NO "hands on training" and keep in mind you can not take any type of notes yes that's correct NO notes I was told if I do I will be fired. After 2 weeks of NO "hands on" training your required to pull your weight with a 80 to 100% accurate production. At no time did the manager come to me and ask how my training is doing, or ask is there any other thing we can do to improve training for you, your a ghost to them. The whole time I was there all the employees stab each other in the back and will throw you under the bus in no time. The management only thinks of their own hide and not of you at all. (example, if you do 85% production and your coworker does 89% management will come out with his list and attack you asking why are you not at 89%) One hispanic came into the lab and said these white people dont know what they are talking about, then an asian woman said if you work with too many asian people they think they are all that, WOW asian racist woman against her own kind..lol! Do not expect to get paid pay what you think your worth (15.00 per hr) and you have the same responsibility as an engineer. Also there is no room for movement at all so if you think of a big company with advancement trust me look elsewhere. As fare as a pay raise..lol think 1 or 2% Again STAY AWAY!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP THINKING OF YOURSELVES and take care of the people that are actually doing work and pay people what they are worth. How about ask how they are doing, and do you need anything to make things better, not "get to work make more or your fired"
