    Pros

    Large Company, lots of funding for new products and innovation.

    Cons

    Owned by German parent company. Most operations and decision are made oversees to best fit into the global strategy. Purchases are made globally and not at the plant level.

    I worked at NORMA Group full-time

    Pros

    Bonus structure. Supportive HR department. Substantial vacation and additional time off. Flexible work environment. Ice cream for the plant on very hot days.

    Cons

    Employee morale is low. Long hours. Low pay. Bad managers allowed to stay and torture employees. Bad MRP system. Very few team-building activities.

    Advice to Management

    Do not force employees to work absurd numbers of hours per week. This occurred in every department, and employees felt powerless to do anything about it.

    I worked at NORMA Group as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved how they structured the internship program. You had a supervisor, a workspace and were given meaningful tasks to complete. You were also expected to contribute through your own project under the guidance of your supervisor. I also never said "Man, I'm bored right now, I wish I had something to do." It was a very positive and valuable experience to be able to contribute to solving real problems and tackling real issues. I always felt like I could go to anyone and they would take the time to sit down with me and show me what they were doing or teach me something that would help me with my project/task or in my future career. The pay was great and the experience was invaluable as an intern.

    Cons

    It is a high stress environment but the friendly atmosphere makes it easy to enjoy being at work.

    Pros

    High investment in information technology systems and equipment. Diverse product portfolio serving a broad range of industries. Growth through organic roots and acquisition.

    Cons

    High turnover of salary staff and leadership positions. Very high percentage of temporary work force. Low salary. Not very good at proper staffing or investing in people.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and compensate the ones you want to keep appropriately. Communicate policies clearly, especially when making changes.

    Good people to work with, but comes with the high stress of the automotive industry.

    I worked at NORMA Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my co-workers, and the plant that I got to work in. I had a great time and I do think that they try and give their interns meaningful tasks that contribute to their learning experience as well as have a positive impact on the company.

    Cons

    I worked very long hours. If I worked 60 hours in a week, I had a light week. Also, when you work in automotive, the atmosphere is high-stress all the time.

    Pros

    Good, hard working employees. Free lunches were provided often.

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility and they work employees to DEATH. Management doesn't care about employees and think that buying lunch makes up for lack of respect. Management has no idea how to actually run the place. Very unorganized, poorly managed and truly chaotic environment. Horrible work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    First of all, take better care of your employees. Improve work-life balance and have management take training to actually learn what they are supposed to be managing to.

    I worked at NORMA Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Descent workforce, middle management, and facilities. Updates have been made to the officies. The company has a strong product line and the ability to produce the quality to stay marketable.

    Cons

    Senior managers could care less about the employees. There is a lot of friction among senior managers which gets passed along to the employees. New management/owners are tearing the company apart and dragging employees down.
