      I have been working at NOVA full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The folks here really seem to care about the people on the ground. Since I have been here the company has given out spot bonuses around twice a year, just a surprise, thanks for working here thing!

      Cons

      The only downside if the fact they are a DoD contractor and at the end of the day you can't control what the Government does. That said they have a great reputation and continue to win work over and over again.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on trucking, you are a example for other DoD contractor.

          During short time in HR worked hard but had struggles making time for future planning and team cohesion but given workload and resources available especially technology for HR made it hard to make time - situation will change soon as time progresses - not a bad place to be long term my time was short

          "Favoritism in the work place unfair treatment"

          No opinion of CEO

          I worked at NOVA full-time for more than 3 years

          Pros

          Company has great future and current business potential and some of the employees are very knowledgeable and professional. Interesting contracts coming up in the future.

          Cons

          No strategy planning in Human Resources no real work experiences and hiring friends and telling everyone your business is not something Human Resources should be participating in. Discrimination in the workplace and favoritism will destroy this department and the company eventually. Hiring real professionals will help but this will never happen with current culture and management.

          Advice to Management

          Please hire people with experience people who can manage change and actually support and supervise their staff not hang out with them and treat them unfairly

          I worked at NOVA for more than 5 years

          Pros

          If you work in the Pennsylvania office you will get special treatment.

          Cons

          If you're not working at the Pennsylvania office and you're not on the leadership's "favorites" list you can forget trying to move up in the company. No matter how hard you work they will deny your training requests, travel, raises, and deny you of any other advancement opportunities. Leadership forces their least liked employees to do jobs they are unqualified for and then quickly terminates them for not performing....

          Advice to Management

          Be fair. Get rid of your favorites list and treat everyone fairly. Stop forcing certain employees to do jobs they aren't qualified for and find a way to unite all offices.
