Positive Outlook

I have been working at Novella Clinical full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Honest, Smart, Hardworking and Flexible would describe most of the people at Novella. I truly appreciate the open atmosphere where someone can try new things without fear of retribution for failing. It is impressive how they’ve maintained this culture from a company of 4 to over 800.

Cons

It is hard for someone to find an entry level position at Novella without prior job experience. There are bright individuals in the workforce that could make a positive impact. If Novella could create an entry-level training program, it could tap into this resource.

Advice to Management

As the company’s growth has increased dramatically, it is impressive how the culture has maintained its positive qualities. My advice would be to work deliberately to maintain this culture and Novella’s creative core that has made it successful.

    Pros

    They will pretty much hire anyone even without experience. This is good place to start your career and get industry experience on your resume and move on.

    Novella is really great for interns or newbies but not for anyone who has any industry experience.

    Cons

    Good workers ( i.e smart and intelligent folks) are run into the ground because there are so few of them in the company.

    The company is filled with a lot a of really nice people who are absolutely clueless when it comes to the job and industry. The company is more focused on socializing than anything else. If you dare not socialize with those in your department, you labeled an outcast and actually reprimanded by management for not being a team player on your annual review.

    Promotions are bogus and based on popularity not based on merit.

    If you are not one of managements favorites do not speak up or try to suggest any changes to company processes.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at all the really great people you have lost over the years, all hard workers who were knowledgeable about the industry. Quit protecting your dead weight employees who have add no or experience value to the company except that they are really nice and sociable.

    Actually listen to your employees that work in the trenches have amazing ideas on how to actually improve work processes and grow your company.
