    I have been working at Novetta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is very interesting and challenging. The benefits are great. 401K and health insurance have gotten better since I was hired. How often does that happen? Management is engaged and cares about the employees

    Cons

    It has been a long time since I was so happy with my company. I have no complaints. I know I gave a 5 star rating across the board, I never do that. My ratings are accurate. My previous company would have gotten an average of 2 stars

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Novetta full-time

    Pros

    Firstly, i have to mention HR and the wonderful job and benefits they provide. You can tell they really understand the tech crunch going on right now and are going the extra mile to stand out in the industry. And i think they are doing an amazing job at that. Next, the Boston office. A young workforce, smart and dedicated. Team leaders and management seem to really have their head's on straight. There is some evidence of technical debt that they are fixing and working down, but from what i can tell - they have a really solid product and are targeting the right customers. The benefits are really good... some highlights: 1. 401k matching policy. 2. 401k including Vanguard funds. 3. Medical Benefits are top notch and some plans are fully paid. 4. Other various benefits including online courses and videos from various industries like BlackHat and ISC. 5. Salary is competitive. 6. Drinks, food and a ping pong table.

    Cons

    I haven't seen any yet. I've only been employed less than a year. But i will come back and update if any come up.

    Advice to Management

    None - Keep on truckin'.

    I have been working at Novetta full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The best medical insurance plans I've ever had or even heard of. It's outrageously good premium AND coverage wise. I challenge you to find another defense contractor in the area who offers better health insurance plans. I couldn't. - Other benefits are also fantastic. - Great flexibility and work/life balance. - Diverse and interesting projects to work on

    Cons

    The usual growing pains but other than that I got nothing to complain about.

    Pros

    Novetta is a great company to work for. The benefits are great. Opportunities are available for different skill sets. The people you work with are top-notch and passionate about what they do. Sure some of the government work is like all government work and can be boring, but a lot of the work that Novetta does is interesting and challenging. The culture at Novetta is great. It isn't the stuffy suit and tie culture that you find throughout most of DC.

    Cons

    Nerd Rage (it happens when you care about what you are doing).

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose site on what brought people to this company and keeps us here.

    Great benefits and work flexibility

    Cons

    Lack of strategic planning, interaction with current staff for increased retention. Continued communication with staff should never be overlooked.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are great and usually very knowledgeable There's opportunity to work on a variety of projects Strong benefits Fun happy hours for big wins

    Cons

    You have to do very very well or very very poorly to be noticed Despite being subcontracted as a "senior developer", I kept my title (and salary!) at Novetta as a "junior developer"

    Advice to Management

    Promote people when they earn it, when their managers recommend it, when they are the top performer on their team, and when they've been there for several years... not that I'm talking about anything in specific...

    Pros

    Company culture is great, no micro managing and lot os great events for employees to take part in. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Lot of change is occuring due to merging of multiple companies to form Novetta. But it is stablizing now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees updated on new developments.
