    I worked at NORDAM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small, family-oriented "feel" to the company. There is a focus on continuous improvement, L6S, & Kaizen.

    Cons

    The threat of lay-offs are always looming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Meredith Siegfried is a very smart woman and very driven for success. Please make continued efforts to stay close to the business and always know what is going on within the organization. If you rely too heavily upon others within leadership positions, you may become "unconnected" to pulse of the business and the stakeholders. Always remain connected to stakeholders; they are the very reason for the organization's success.

    Pros

    Great company that stays competitive with employee benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    The threat of a lay-off is ever present due to the volatility of this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep stakeholders interested. Give them opportunities to grow, or at least move laterally. Don't let them become stagnant or complacent.

    Current Employee - Technical Intern in Tulsa, OK (US)

    I have been working at NORDAM full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and helpful. One perk is that there are half-day on every Friday. There's usually not any overtime. Hours are pretty flexible as long as you put in the 40 for the week.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem like that great of a place for moving up. The family holds all of the top positions. It's somewhat restrictive on personal career progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make positions more known instead of just using word of mouth. It keeps good talent from moving up and it makes younger people avoid staying long term.
