  1. "It's a great entry level organization, but doesn't seem to have any internal promotion process."

    Pros

    There is a great balance of Work and Home Life here. My direct manager is fantastic and the team I'm on is also a great joy to work with. This makes morale very high which encourages positive work ethic and makes you want to come to work.

    Cons

    There is a lack of innovation at the company which is directly tied to the lack of incentives for such a thing. The Novatel stock is very volatile and makes for a poor investment which leads to even less incentive to innovate. This coupled with a poor promotion system is leading to lots of top talent vacating in search of better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more incentive for innovation. An improved promotion system would help with this and would also help keep some of your best talent at Novatel. Expanding into new markets and improving our current position in our main market would help boost our stock and strengthen our company. This can be done best if your human resources are encouraged to innovate.


  2. "Interactive and enjoyable"

    Pros

    Good gym, pool, spa and sport courts (IE: Tennis, Basketball, Ping Pong etc.).
    Good Work environment.
    Close to Food court.

    Cons

    Lots of 3rd party interaction.
    Low salaries.
    Worried about company stability.
    Difficult to obtain equipment needed for development.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve marketing. Right now I feel there needs to be more marketing (IE: PR). I also feel the name Novatel should be marketed and not just our main product.
