    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Novabase full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Team spirit, people, projects are quite good and thrilling/innovative, UX. Overall Novabase is a very nice place to learn and grow in knowledge.

    Cons

    Low Salaries when compared with the competition. No career progression for someone that is clearly very well rated in the evaluation system (Your salary might be reviewed, but you career level will stagnate for a while). Seems that there is no interest in keeping good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Retain your talent if you want to increase turnover

    I worked at Novabase full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good variety of projects - Good technologies - Variety of formations/certifications is also good

    Cons

    - Some projects don't have work/life balance - Managers are the biggest problem: bully people, you cannot leave on time, their faults are usually suffered by the employees lower in the chain - Salary is no big deal for the hard job you need to do - Early evaluations are a total joke and witch hunt

    Advice to Management

    - quit your job if you don't like to manage projects.

    Pros

    Interesting people and potentially interesting (at first sight) projects.

    Cons

    The entire management levels and the psychotic organizational are the biggest problem. Policies, processes and methodologies are obsolete. Motivation and team work are in the way of becoming extinct.

    Advice to Management

    Urgent: Organize the company (seriously)! Hire a entire C level with industry and disciplines knownow (not friends or opportunities for the buddies).

    I have been working at Novabase full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very good company to get experience. Almost everyone working in IT in Portugal, works, worked, applied or will work at Novabase at some point in his/her career. In some teams/projects, outstanding team work/culture.

    Cons

    Nonexistent technical career. Nonexistent Salary and raise policy. The evaluation process ought to be better and fairest.

    Advice to Management

    Play more attention to employees! The young employees will one day run the company. However, if you do need experience employees to guide the younger ones! Any company has 3 stakeholders, Customer, Shareholders and Employees. Without the later you will not be able to satisfy, and therefore retain, the other stakeholders.
