    I have been working at NORDAM full-time (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 Management

    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.

    Aerospace industry fluctuates, so jobs are not as set in stone as I would like

    Pros

    Great company that stays competitive with employee benefits and compensation.

    Keep stakeholders interested. Give them opportunities to grow, or at least move laterally. Don't let them become stagnant or complacent.

    Pros

    An energetic company with great benefits. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Subject to the roller coaster economies of the aerospace and aviation industries. My difficulty was with my supervisor. I gave my ALL to the company & department. But I was treated with only marginal consideration/respect from my supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to challenge employees mentally (not physically). Check your turnover at each level of supervision. While departmentally our group turnover was low, turnover in the department I was in was 100%.

    Cons

    Ebb and flow of Aerospace industry

    Advice to Management

    Operate with/continue to operate with integrity. Be fair to your team, constantly review the Servant Leadership qualities and strive to be that. If you have a beef, go to your management, or HR if you feel going to your leaders is inappropriate instead of fostering disengagement by discussing with your co-workers.

    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 Management

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