Company Culture

NORC regularly fired people for no case. To meet their budgets they would fire anyone making over $10. They fired all full time staff and replaced with part timer and then fired nearly all the part timers and replaced them with new people who they paid $8.50 and hour before moving most of the jobs to Nevada.

Support from management

Some of the immediate managers are okay but the top managers never cared about anyone.

Teamwork

There is teamwork but the positions did not require teamwork.

Freedom to work independently

This was not an option in the positions I held.

Internal Communication

Communication was okay as it came from the immediate supervisors.

Gender Equality

Yes

Attitude towards older colleagues

No they fired 90% of the full time staff and fired 98% of the part time staff that made over $10 an hour.

Career Development

No career development

Overall compensation for your work

They made excuses for not giving raises and fired nearly everyone who made over $10 an hour.

Office / Work Environment

The computer I was on never worked but this because of how they made sure right before they dismissed you that they found cause to let you go and not pay unemployment. They even boasted about never having paid unemployment insurance to any employee they laid off. They laid off between 300 & 500 people, if not more during the two years I worked there.

Environmental Friendliness

Does not apply

Work-Life Balance

There was no work life balance. I could not take off for a siblings funeral without it counting against me even though I had excellent yearly reviews and perfect attendance and was never late. They held the week I took off for my sibling's out of state funeral against me.

Company Image

No, how can you talk fondly about a company that give you great reviews and then fires you for cause hundreds of people a year. Every 3-4 months around 50 people would be fired.

Job Security

Job was not safe as they kept trying to cut costs by laying off/firing all employees who made over $10 an hour. Then they moved most of the work from our department to Nevada.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

Yes

Challenging Work

Yes

Inclusive / Diverse

Does not apply

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be honest about budget problems. Admit it only wants to pay minimal wage.

What I like about the company

The location and some aspects of the position.

What I dislike about the company

They fired anyone making more than $10 an hour and then boasted about never having to pay unemployment insurance. Massive layouts that the company labeled as firings approximately 200 each year.
