    Fun place to work, good pay, but only if management likes you.

    I worked at NORDAM

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits. Fun work (at least mine was)

    Cons

    Way too top heavy when it came to management. You'd think with so many of them, they'd be available when you need them. They are always MIA. Peyton place for gossip and backstabbing. Many of the younger employees have no work to ethic and would rather sit around and talk about other people. SO annoying.
    Oh and if management decides they don't like you, start looking for another job ASAP.

    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.

    Pros

    The people. Benefits. United Way.
    The people still there are awesome and help each other with work and personal things.

    Cons

    Lay offs even though you are one of the dedicated stakeholders. Keeping people that are not dedicated over those that are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit laying the good people off.

    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.
