    I worked at NORDAM full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

    NORDAM acknowledges capabilities and makes opportunities available, should the initiative be there.

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

    Pros

    Large company with a small company mentality. Appreciates everyone and treats them as family. I believe opportunities are there that make the effort to go above and beyond.

    Cons

    Volatile industry. As long as you work to diversify your overall knowledge and expand your presence, you are appreciated; however, if you become content with your job and choose not to go above and beyond, you employment could be in jeopardy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan a little better for down times. Significant measures have been installed to accommodate current stakeholders through diversification and proactive willingness to transfer internally in order to save jobs.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Tulsa, OK
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tulsa, OK

    I worked at NORDAM full-time for 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.

    Current Employee - Technical Intern in Tulsa, OK

    I have been working at NORDAM full-time for less than a 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.
