    I have been working at Novetta full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has great benefits, truly cares about bringing their employees together, and provides a lot of employee care beyond the basics. They are very supportive of veterans and women/women veterans in technology. Additionally, they are very supportive of innovation and personal and professional development.

    Cons

    After almost 3 years I can’t think of any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care for your employees and encourage growth and training

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

    Pros

    Under my current director/VP, they have a great screening process to get the right people. Tech skills are a dime a dozen - its the attitude of the individuals that can work together to make a great team. So far its been it a great place to learn (again based on the current team). Flexible schedule. Several initiatives for techies to collaborate.

    Cons

    as with all contracting companies, if you've outgrown your position, the only option is to jump. There is (known) capability to make the jump from technical side to management side. They do have corporate training / leadership school, but its only for the management side of things. Nothing exists for getting the technical help to move up and help the company grow and maneuver.

    Advice to Management

    Tech collaborations are great, but please increase the ability to get technical people moved up within the company. Look to hire from inside first. The folks who're working to make this company great NOW are the ones who are working for ability to move up...

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Novetta full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The work is very interesting. Solving hard problems in an interesting space. You get to own full features and get a good amount of freedom to implement them as you'd like. Co-workers are smart and friendly.

    Cons

    You never have the time or resources to do your job well. Short staffing and overly tight deadlines lead to work you can't really be proud of. Feel like the only think that matters to management is that you fill out your timesheet so the contract you're on gets billed. Good luck getting a promotion without demanding one once you have taken on all the responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your products and in your employees. Manage your projects, both the ones you sell directly and the ones you use to build them.
