Stay away from this place!
SW Engineer (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 23, 2016
Company wants to someday play in the "Big leagues", but has a lot of "Minor Leaguers" in charge. Upper management has no idea what goes on beneath them. Any newer employees who try and implement industry standards are shunned by the long term employees, who love receiving their "free perks". Processes were non existent in their Boston office. Warning - stay away from this place!
Pros
Place is run like a day-care - recess, alcohol, and play time!
Cons
No plan in place - flying by the seat of their pants!

Not worth it
Senior Systems Integrator (Former Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCMay 10, 2016
I've tried to post reviews about Novetta several times through indeed, none of which ever got posted. Sufficed to say I have many negative things to say about this company. But I'll focus on one thing for this review and hopefully it will make the cut.

Management/Leadership are a huge problem for Novetta.

Attrition is high, at least for the senior level engineers. No worries though, as of late Novetta has been picking up every intern or barely qualified individual it can. Young employees don't rock the boat and don't ask questions when questionable behavior presents itself.

C-Level management is aware of mid-level management problems but refuse to do anything about it. Why would they if the same management continues to make the company money, right? In their minds the company succeeds because of this management style, while I'd say the employees under these managers succeed in spite of the management.

The senior level employees that do stick around are good people, just in bad positions. I wish them luck but I have no doubt that eventually they too will leave to find alternative employment.
Pros
The work performed is challenging and rewarding
Cons

Extremely Unprofessional Environment
Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 12, 2016
The company is not organized and the environment is staffed with individuals that exhibit extremely immature behavior in the workplace. It's not a place that I'd recommend to anyone that takes their job seriously. I would never recommend them to potential customers.

Management & Job culture outweigh the Benefits
General (Former Employee) –  VAApril 19, 2015
While the benefits were great, the job culture and management needed work. For example, a "job well done" from a colleague to managers were not acknowledge and if they were, came with a backhanded complement. The company culture slowly eroded from a relaxed, open environment to one of borderline hostile management and constant complaints about "no one doing their jobs." Certainly the concept of teamwork was thrown out the window. To their credit, they did create a small team to try to solve problems within the company, however, in certain departments, this was impossible to do, or wasn't a priority-it's not clear which of these is the reason why it failed. It was also made clear that advancement was not a possibility. So, if you don't mind just coasting along and sacrificing what enjoyment you could possibly have at work for a nice 401k plan and medical benefits, this is the place for you.
Pros
Relaxed dressed code, great health, dental 401k plans
Cons
Management
