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

    Pros

    Everyone is really nice and helpful including management. Good teamwork.

    Cons

    Lot's of talk about growth and quality, wanting to build excellent software, but the reality is that no one really cares how things are built. Pay isn't great either. Culture & Values is just a bunch of buzzwords void of any actual meaning. They care more about people who attend company events than those who don't but do good work. You'll get penalized in your evaluations if you don't attend said events.

    Advice to Management

    No advice since I know that no one actually cares.

    I worked at Novabase full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It could be a good company to work depending on the area you belong and the colleagues you have, since there are many people with the knowledge above average and very professional.

    Cons

    There are so many people that worked for the company several years, that gave much more from their time and personal life than the required and when they decided to leave the company, for some reason they don't have good behavior with us. With me for example, they didn't pay me more than 600€ that I should have received.

    Advice to Management

    They really don't care, they are just worried about taking their money trough the extraordinary dividend every years

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

    Pros

    Good benefit plan Pay in day

    Cons

    Benefit plan a little liar, in the contract says that you can choose between several cars but when you enter you can not. You have to choose among which the company has in stock at that time.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent at the time of hiring to better manage expectations
