    Pros

    I had an amazing experience with Novus's internship program. I was able to learn so much in such a condensed amount of time. They also have a great facilities team, and offer freshly prepared lunches for employees.

    Cons

    No complaints about Novus come to mind.

    I have been working at Novus International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, free lunch, free personal training and gym, free messages, flexible work environment, beautiful campus, successful company, opportunities to change roles drastically depending on your desires and competency,

    Cons

    This company does not operate on lean principals in any area of the company, highly unorganized, 29% turnover at the moment, No development or promotion plans, very little standardization of anything, little accountability for sticking to procedures, no procedures in processes where there should be, large team silos. This company is hemoraging money but they are also making alot at the moment our inefficiency isnt as promonent but when the boom wears off......

    Advice to Management

    Help remove silos, encourage and invite team members to interact with other teams, have a plan for yourself and help your team members create a plan for advancement,

    Pros

    Great work experience for otherwise inexperienced intern. Managers at multiple levels made themselves available for any and all questions. Strong daily responsibilities for intern level. Free lunch everyday.

    Cons

    The lunch can get old, however it is free so cannot really complain. More work for some interns.

    Pros

    some of the best benefits I've seen

    Cons

    sub-par pay, favoritism plays too big of a role, too many inconsistencies from department to department

    Advice to Management

    enforce the Management System equally across the board

    I have been working at Novus International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits like free lunch, flexible time, wellness dollars, etc. are great. Also, sick time does not come out of your vacation time. In addition, volunteer hours are reimbursed and charitable donations are matched by the company. Very diverse company because of global presence so you work with people from all different backgrounds.

    Cons

    Tuition assistance for continuing education is advertised heavily in the hiring process but difficult to attain once employed, if it's attainable at all. Lateral moves are more common as opposed to vertical moves, so it is next to impossible to get promoted in your area of interest at Novus unless you move to a different department.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring and keeping good leadership is of utmost importance to ensure consistency and less turnover in general. People don't usually quit because of the job, they quit because of the management. Invest in good talent initially and development of that talent and you will see more loyal, committed employees and greater ROI in general.

    I worked at Novus International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The managers are so nice and willing to work with you to do anything pretty much. I was interested in marketing as well and two of the managers spent their entire day with me showing me what they did to see if I'd enjoy it. Novus is great to their employees.

    Cons

    I honestly loved every part of Novus and am very passionate about their company.

    Pros

    Good place to work with a lot of very smart, hard working people.
    Flexible work environment.
    Wonderful offices

    Cons

    Promotions were given to those that made big promises, not necessarily those that delivered results.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on those that deliver results.
