What kind of career opportunities exist at NORR?

Pros

I started with NORR on a contract to spend my summers while I was in school working and I was welcomed back with open arms the next summer. The year I finished school I was offered a full time position as an Architectural Designer - Technical and I have been here now full time for just over 3 years. Working with this company has been such a positive learning experience and a great way to develop my career and shape it into the exact career path I desired. NORR offers endless learning opportunities including free webinars and lunch & learns - providing us endless information on building methods and materials. The environment is so welcoming, everyone is so nice. Because we are a smaller office, the company feels like a small family. Apart from office life, NORR has also provided it's employees with an outstanding Working From Home initiative that has allowed us to continue working on our projects while remaining safe at home. One great thing I love about NORR is it's constant growth with new technology. Our team always seems to be introducing new software, and technology to improve our performance. I also love how much NORR encourages out of office relationships by hosting social events that allows us to get together with our co-workers to have some fun and promoting a work-life balance (which I believe NORR truly values).

Cons

I am a very detail oriented and focused individual and I find our open concept office environment can sometimes be very distracting to work in. Alternatively, through the working from home initiative, I feel like a lot of people are enjoying working from home more and therefore another con would be the fact that the office environment may not ever be the same when we return to the office.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work, keep getting the company involved through the Town Hall meetings and social committee events!
