    I have been working at omNovia Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't write enough about how high-class this organization is. The platform is easy to use, the technology behind it is rock-solid, and the people here tie everything together into a package that is first-rate. I absolutely love working here.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say so far. Other support centers can take ques from omNovia on how to handle their operations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at omNovia Technologies full-time

    Pros

    They have some very dedicated staff, you get to be creative and solve problems.

    Cons

    All of those good reviews from Feb. 2014 are fake. I worked there in early-mid 2014 and all of those people had either been fired by the time I got there, or those were written by management, because there were only about five of us working there. On my second day they fired 25% of the staff, so the whole time I was there I was worried I was going to get fired due to some random restructuring which they seem to do every couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Space out your fake reviews more so it's not so obvious.

    I worked at omNovia Technologies full-time

    Pros

    - Decent Pay
    - Good Team

    Cons

    CEO is misguided and doesn't have much sense for the future vision of his company. Places like ON24 are a far superior platform and a much better culture fit if you're looking for employment in California. He moved his company out here and doesn't quite understand that you can't treat employees like a punching bag and expect them to stick around.

    Don't plan on using any of your promised vacation time either. The team is too small and busy putting out fires for anyone to take a vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Take a leadership class and learn the importance of interacting with your customer base. Don't freak out and yell at your employees when something goes wrong.

    I worked at omNovia Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small environment, relaxed, intelligent people

    Cons

    You interface directly with the CEO and can act like a child when he throws his temper tantrums. This is ultimately the reason why I left the company

    Advice to Management

    Grow up.

    Pros

    The Team
    The Technology
    The opportunity to make a big impact regardless of your role.
    Open to input from all parties.
    Huge opportunity for the company to grow.

    Cons

    Processes are not completely in place yet, still some of the start-up mentality around despite growth every year over 10 years and an established presence in the online event arena.

    Advice to Management

    Speed up the implementation of Processes, keep hiring the same type of employees.

    Pros

    Colleagues - constantly challenged by all the smart people with varying backgrounds
    Size - I can see the impact my work has on the company and the start to end, complete view of projects
    Dynamic - because it's small, we can change processes quickly to work more efficiently

    Cons

    Communication - can be difficult managing who to update and staying updated on everything that's going on

    Advice to Management

    Need better data and file management

    I worked at omNovia Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    By far, working for omNovia has been the best career decision that I have made. They have a great technology, small but very resourceful team and a down to earth CEO. Over the course of 3 years, I have received 3 promotions and 4 pay increases.

    Cons

    Since it is a high growth company, sometimes you have to wear serval different hats.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to marketing and sales instead of development. You have a superior product and it would take at least couple years for others to catch up with your technology.

    Pros

    Small company, generally hires intelligent people who chose the wrong company to work for.

    Cons

    Fast growth does not = more money. You will have added responsibilities without a pay raise.
    You will be the scapegoat for all issues that happen with the weekly production development code changes
    Did I mention the weekly production development changes?
    "CEO" does not respect your time nor your energy that you spend on issues or development.
    You will be asked to complete tasks, present your completed task to the CEO and be TOLD to re-do everything, how he wants it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the tyrant CEO.

    Pros

    Relax office environment, nice folks. Good place for entry level position.

    Cons

    The company needs to have an organizational focus. It is currently a one man show. The salary is below market average.
