    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.

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company makes money and has grown over the years

    Cons

    Designs don't work but Engineering team is too stubborn to change and do anything about it. If you are not mobile and willing to do assignments overseas you lose points on your performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating the quality department as enemies. They don't make defects but are your problem solving experts. Listen to what they say and they can improve. it's time to change your Engineering Managers.

    I worked at NORMA Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people that work for the company. A good opportunity to learn about business in a global atmosphere.

    Cons

    Poor executive management team. Claims to care about employees when in reality they are more interested in cutting back on benefits to curb costs to the employer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make it all about the numbers. People are what make a company run properly. If you wonder why your turnover is so high, this could explain it.

    I worked at NORMA Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Promising pay rates and guaranteed raises at regular intervals. Employees and management were nice and helpful while training. Very short distance away from me.

    Cons

    I heard rumors that this place was notorious for bringing in temps just long enough until it was time to hire them then deciding they were no longer needed. Left a good job giving one weeks notice as requested trained for two months then was started on hiring process. Then laid off with no warning. Temp agency called back a year later but of course norma would not match my current pay or give any kind of guarantee that the same thing would happen again.

    Advice to Management

    Change your reputation.

    I have been working at NORMA Group full-time

    Pros

    NORMA Group offers reasonable pay and benefits. They offer a 401k match. A significant number of team members have laptop computers.

    Cons

    There is not such thing as accountability in the organization. Personality is the Golden Rule not performance. Consistent corporate culture is does not exist.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to buy a company, engulf it complete and not just the profits. There is so much low hanging fruit that rots on the vine.
