    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

    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.

    Pros

    Loved the work. Kind of political.

    Has a tendency to over hire, then lay off. I was caught up in that.

    Better staff planning.

    I worked at NORDAM as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learned ALOT about aerospace and got to see hands-on how NORDAM is affecting the industry.

    Lots of young interns- so you'll have automatic friends.

    Got to meet lots of upper management.

    Cons

    Don't live in Owasso as an intern.

    Doesn't have very good follow-up with potential hires from intern class.

    Current Employee - Engineer I in Tulsa, OK

    I have been working at NORDAM

    Pros

    The work schedule is very flexible
    The work is pretty interesting
    There is use of some state-of-the-art technology in manufacturing.

    Cons

    The commute for me is very long.
    The location is very remote (which makes for the long commute)
    The opportunities for me to learn and develop professionally sometimes seem limited.
    The people are fine, but not necessarily very "fun" to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper leadership doesn't communicate to stakeholders very often - even an update email would be nice from time to time.
