    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nova Medical Centers does not have a cap on bonus structure. If you work hard you will see it in your commissions.

    Cons

    You can't be lazy on the phones if you want to be successful, you have to make 40+ dials a day.

    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay for CEU reimbursement.

    Cons

    No raises or bonuses despite personal or company growth. Increasing new responsibility that was formerly other departments roles. Benefits have grown steadily worst over the years. Used clinic metrics to cattle prod staff into improving clinic criteria but then criticizes regarding factors out of your control. Leadership of the different departments do little to communicate with each other regarding large sweeping changes often leaving it in the charge of clinic staff to deliver news to co-workers. After your first year you do not see any retention incentive untill you reach 5 years after which you cap out with a 3rd week of PTO provided they do not find a reason to chase you off. Astronomical turnover rate.

    I worked at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Inviting Salary - Believed in the Product

    Cons

    - Misleading representation of commissions in interviews. Don't expect commissions for at least 6 months. - Corporate makes decisions on a whim , no real leadership - Lead by fear - You may read reviews and think 'oh they're probably exaggerating' or 'I can handle that, I'm in a tight spot' STOP THERE and realize how many seasoned sales reps are posting reviews - "Proactive Managing" refer to the micromanaging in recent posted reviews to get a good idea of your daily itinerary - One can excel in gaining large accounts but be reprimanded for anything Nova wants to focus on that week, this changes weekly - All a numbers game , they threaten so much that I've seen a handful of reps fake accounts, meetings, calls etc just to make it through the week - If a rep makes it longer than a few months it's a surprise to management, little trust is ever gained regardless of how long a rep is able to endure their antics - CRM and Email format from the 90's - No ethical morals or morals in general if we're being honest - Very low car reimbursement , no gas allowance , and lots of wear and tear on your personal vehicle - Constant switching of territories (Don't ask how many hours it takes to re add leads into CRM via google maps) yes, google maps is how you prospect - Cheapest company to work for (reuse office equipment from other locations, ceiling tiles, you name it just so they'll save a penny) - Knew numerous employees who left long standing careers that believed this was where they'd retire, unfortunate mistake - If there's ever a problem with an account of yours , you're directed to report a problem on their CRM. You have to follow up on this problem multiple times before it even gets acknowledged, let alone close to solved - Company truly seems to be heading toward selling (as I would recommend them do) Funny note: District managers are kept in the dark about everything as well so they also probably wouldn't know till the day it happens - So much emphasis goes into obtaining new accounts that you often have to neglect active accounts or take meetings with new businesses over maintaining your current accounts - IN MY TIME AT NOVA MEDICAL I SAW 15 SALES REPS COME AND GO

    Pros

    You learn a lot by working your life away.

    Cons

    Don't even bother applying if you have any ounce of integrity and morals. They over promise in many aspects and underdeliver, they do not support your career goals or in any way. The management team and the HR department are unethical. They only need warm bodies to do the job and have no hesitation with firing you and calling you back with a VP job a year later. With this being said, they cant find any good quality candidates and will promote anyone who isn’t qualify for the job and lacks leadership management skills. Individuals are not treated fair and is a company where HR is not enforced.  The metrics are so steep that it is often unattainable, no work life balance.  If you are performing well for the company and bringing in new business, it doesn’t matter, next week they could fire you or write you up a million of times. It is an extremely stressful environment that carries over into your home life and the job quickly takes over your life as well. Doesn’t value employees - during Covid19 - it enforced employees to work or get unpaid time off, even non essential roles within the company. No career path No work life balance High turnover Terrible and two-faced Management Micromanagement to the Nth degree - You will always be just another number

    Pros

    Good base pay, but no records provided for earned commissions.

    Cons

    Upper and lower management. No pay raises. Poor health insurance. You will get written up every month, for no reason, so they can build a case against you, in case they want to fire you!

    I worked at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary can be high with experience

    Cons

    This company needs to change the way they act and treat Industrial Directors immediately. It is embarrassing.. they micromanage you all day everyday. Every morning you have to make 40+ calls from 9:00am to 11:00am and set 3+ appointments for the following week. If you take a ten minute break during that time, management will text you and demand to know why there was a break during 'call block', threaten and potentially write you up. You must have 20 appointments a week or will be wrote up which is nearly impossible to do every single week but they don't care because they will just write you up or fire you on spot. Managers literally just sit in a conference room together and watch what each does all day and call their appointments because they don't trust the employee. But yet managers get paid the big bucks.. to do that? While sitting in the office, managers slowly transfer accounts you worked hard to sign up over to their name and take credit. You work hard on your territory for months then they change it on you and again take over the accounts. Your next month will of course be lower because you have to re-prospect but they don't care, they will write you up and threaten you weekly. Each rep is demanded to like the Nova LinkedIn post every single day then text their manager after they do so. If you look closely at the LinkedIn 'likes' it is literally only Nova employees.. They recently copied and posted an article that was written and posted from Nova's largest Indiana competitor Concentra. That is embarrassing and 'real original'. They lie during the interview process and hire a bunch or employees to do all this work just so they can fire you at the end and take the commission/credit for these accounts. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from Nova as a potential employee or company looking to partner with them, you will regret it! Look into Nova's lawsuit years ago, they purposely lied and overcharged companies for services also.
