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 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.

Novetta is a great place to work because they support the ever changing technologies of the software world. It has been really great riding the wave of the latest greatest software and developing innovative solutions. I have grown considerably as a software engineer with this company.

Lack of process in place for development work is what makes the project I am working stressful. Team has good members, Friendly team members. May be my project was poorly managed. There is no requirements analysis.

Novetta is focused on cutting edge technologies. Most days you will focus on completing work for federal government customers. Recently they have expanded into the commercial area. You are encourage to improve your skills.

Spend my hours building software and working on important problems. I learned many things about Biometrics and Identity analytics and worked on projects from desktop applications, web appications, and installers.
SW Engineer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 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!
Place is run like a day-care - recess, alcohol, and play time!
No plan in place - flying by the seat of their pants!

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.
Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 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.
