    I have been working at Novabase full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a safe workplace that provides a good work-life balance and stability, you get to learn a lot and work in some interesting projects. Some good managers.

    Cons

    Some of the management is as bad as they come, and the company does not know when to say "no" to clients, often compromising the quality of the products and forces you to put your work ethics aside.

    I have been working at Novabase full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing is good, trust me.

    Cons

    Low compensation. Bad management with no idea of what they are doing. They provide old and bad equipment to work with. Their "training courses" are only soft skills and lack quality. You have to pay your health care from your salary. 10% of your salary is given in an "internal" budget you can only spend with their partners.
