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

Pros

This is a great company characterized by cooperation, helping each other grow professionally, great values and culture, an just good people.

Cons

The compensation isn't competitive and is rather stagnant compared to the rest of the industry. There are also no annual merit pay increases. There are quarterly bonuses which are nice but are modest in size.

Being a talent acquisition firm the company places a huge emphasis on extraverted qualities to the detriment of more introverted individuals who do not fit the extrovert ideal. They're trying to better understand individual strengths but have a long way to go.

Advice to Management

Work to make your compensation program more competitive, especially for junior employees, and seek to better leverage the strengths and unique differences of your employees.

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

    Pros

    Many employee niches, you will definitely find people to work with that you will hang out with after work. If you are just looking for a job to pay the bills, than this place is a good start.

    Cons

    No consistency - too much variability (e.g. hiredesk versus iCIMs). There are some really good technologies for some projects, and awful technologies in others. Strategy and forward thinking aren't strong points. If you are wanting a career then look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Don't beg your staff to vote for you to get staffing awards. Stomp out politics - it's too small of a company to have them. The hiring and firing processes need a lot of work. Too many interviews for entry level positions, too much drama around letting people go.

    I worked at Novotus as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn the ropes in recruiting, fast paced, and nice managers. You are trained well on the ATS that are used, and there is a lot of collaborative team work. They have brown bag training sessions, which are valuable.

    Cons

    Once the larger projects commence, there is little opportunity to secure FT position if you are a contract worker.
