Pros

Liked the company, services, products etc.

Cons

Sales managers were really just the top salesmen and were getting most of the deals. As usual, an engineering company by and for engineers and salesmen were not valued properly.

Advice to Management

One particular owner (#2) was just that...

    I have been working at Novacoast (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work is very flexible with options to work remotely. Management is loose in a good way where you don't have someone watching over your shoulder. The level of transparency is very high where you know exactly how much value you and your coworkers bring to the company.

    Cons

    Work can sometimes be very unpredictable. Workload differs depending on what projects you are working on and the availability of new work.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing very well. Direction of the company is looking positive. I enjoy reading the monthly updates in our newsletter.

    I worked at Novacoast full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great organization with strong C level/Upper management. Good industry with lot of growth.

    Cons

    Terrible pay for sales reps. If you want a sales/business development role look elsewhere.

    Upper management needs to appoint more leadership style managers not scatter brained individuals. The ability to sell does not translate into the ability to manage a team.

    Advice to Management

    Put more experienced leadership style management into sales manager positions. Offer better pay. Be open to new ideas.
