Our Un-Corporate Culture

Our Un-Corporate Culture

Although we work hard, life at Northwoods is anything but “corporate.” We dress casually and enjoy each other’s company. We treat one another like family, which means that along with working together, we also eat, laugh, and play together — and we don’t hesitate to call each other out if needed.

Together is a big word for us. We want you to be a shining star, but for a Northwoods project to be successful, everyone has to work together. We share knowledge and roll up our sleeves to support one another. We are accountable for our work and to each other. We do our most excellent work together.
