Your point of view will depend on your position
VOIP Engineer (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 13, 2018
In a nut shell, if you are working directly on Novetta owned projects or products IM sure it is a great company but if you are working as as a contractor for Novetta on a client's site then you most likely will not really have an opinion on anything related to company culture, leadership or moral.

You will however be paid below market for your position. Atleast the insurance is good. :-)
Pros

Cons
Pay is not really competitive

Novetta TFX
System Engineer (Current Employee) –  North CarolinaAugust 7, 2018
Novetta pays great and has amazing benefits, but the management is horrible. Toxic leadership for sure, unfortunately the management is all related in some sort or fashion so there is nothing you can really do about it either.

Fine place to start you career
Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAAugust 7, 2018
Novetta is (was?) a fine place to start a career. I got to see some exciting technologies and work with very smart people. However, because Novetta grew through many acquisitions, the company is really many companies rolled into one. As a result, there wasn't really a cohesive culture.

A good place to work
Senior Intelligence Analytic Tradecraft Evaluator (Current Employee) –  Washington City, DCMay 31, 2018
I would recommend it as a good place to work. Leadership is approachable and they encourage development. Career broadening is an option and the mangers are not opposed to new job opportunities within the company.

I would rather not.
Systems Administrator - Contractor (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAMay 11, 2018
I personally didn't have a great experience at Novetta so I don't know if I really should detail my experience. The management wasn't very engaging and often provided no guidance of what the customer wants.
