Grant Program Manager (Current Employee), Springfield, VAFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: long christmas break!!!! two weeks
Cons: most employees have
The biggest advantage to working for NOVA is security. Once someone passes their one year probation it is nearly impossible to get rid of them. That being said you will find a lot of people who care very little about their job and even more who feel customer service is not necessary. I have been at NOVA for three years and have had wonderful management – more... but have also seen at the higher levels the management is less than stellar. – less

Information Technology Assistant Professor (Current Employee), Manassas, VADecember 5, 2013
NVCC Manassas Campus is a great place to work. The campus is small and the campus community is tight knit. The administration does not micromanage and allows professors a level of professional freedom in how they choose to teach their classes.

There are always plenty of opportunities for professional development and it is strongly encouraged the professor – more... take part. – less

Working for NOVA is no different that working in most other organizations. Promotions are typically who you know versus what you know. The beauty of working for a state agency is job security, great benefits, and an overall casual working environment.
