    Its a great place to get experience, especially it you are right out of school

    Cons

    The place is full of backstabbers. You work your butt off and don't get any recognition. If you do, somebody else will try and claim it was their idea. They also have a bad habit of not backing their employees in disputes.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, especially those who work hard and follow the rules. Also pay them a decent salary

    I worked at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Down time allowed for homework
    Made new friends with the employees

    Cons

    Management was hands down the worst I have ever dealt with. Most of the employees were backstabbing people that should've gotten fired from the start. Super unprofessional environment to work in and the ones that were horrible never got disciplined, causing the good ones to quit. They lied about the job description before I got hired and I ended up wasting a year of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and grow a pair

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent benefits, some good people to work with

    Cons

    Management does nothing but micromanage, cliques all through different departments, no trust from manager to employee to do the job well and efficiently, you end up doing a lot of work without compensation for people who are getting paid way more than you do.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of your bad managers- you know exactly who they are.

    Sometimes there are down times that you can catch up work. Only works if you're full time.

    Management-All of your business becomes talk of Novum! Everybody knows your business! Very unprofessional atmosphere! People covering for others that should be disciplined. The place is just a cesspool of negativity, jealousy, and people willing to throw you under the bus to cover their own backside!

    Advice to Management

    CLEAN HOUSE! Put people that really have ETHICS, MORALS,STANDARDS, PROFESSIONALISM! Especially in the Screening Dept!
