Finisher A (Former Employee), Wichita, KS – January 28, 2014
Was a great company. Closed Wichita plant. Work was great and atmosphere was amazing. Worked with a great group of people. Management was misleading and not always open with things going on and a lot of favoritism but overall good place to work. Well when we had work.
Senior Accountant (Current Employee), Tulsa, OK – January 23, 2014
Pros: great benefits.
Cons: subject to industry swings.
Great company, very oriented to their employees (which they refer to as stakeholders). My department consists of a very cohesive group which goes above and beyond to help each other and assist others in the company. Company is very high-tech. State of the art equipment in meeting rooms. Late model personal computers. Mostly a cubicle environment. Company – more... is international with major locations in the United States (Tulsa, Oklahoma - headquarters), Wales and Singapore. NORDAM is a maintenance provider and components manufacturer for commercial and military aircraft. – less

Developed training material and program to be used throughout their Finish shop. I believed I further developed my communication skills as an effective leader. Their Management team for the most part was strong but a few lacked the ability to demonstrate on a daily basis those core attributes that a good manager and/or leader should display in front of their direct reports. My co-workers were very knowledge and disciplined in the finish skill sets. Dealing with co-leaders within the tier that weren't professional and both mine and their direct leaders would not take action. The day to day interaction with very high caliber finish personnel. – less
