Decent place to work. No room for advancement.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 3, 2018
Novum has a very high turnover with their employees. There is too much favoritism, especially with department managers. Some managers seem to get away with murder (leaving facility with other managers for hours - for lunches, running personal errands, etc...while ON the clock). Too many co-workers are related to each other and seemed to get hired on easily, and stay there, even when their job performance is poor. Gossip is rampant and it is a very unprofessional atmosphere. It is almost impossible to advance to a higher position and, unfortunately, they rarely promote from within the company. Micromanaging is very common. Benefits are good. Pay could be better. Job is not difficult. There is really nothing enjoyable about the position. Employees complain about everything (bosses, pay, fellow co-workers, the participants...EVERYTHING). Some managers are very unprofessional and are "friends" with the employees that are underneath them instead of being a "boss" to them. Pay raises and bonuses were hard to come by.
Good benefits (health insurance, Pto)
Too much gossip and too many unprofessional employees
