Staff Feedback

We think Northern Economics is a wonderful place to work. Here are some quotes from staff members.

"We never know what we'll encounter in our work each day, what challenges and successes we'll face, what interesting new projects we'll encounter, or what we'll learn in the course of our work. The opportunity to face each new day with a close-knit team, working together collaboratively, is what really makes our work rewarding for me."
-- Mike Fisher

"I come to work each day to  excited to work with my peers because their insights and efforts help us succeed as a team and have fun at the same time.  A recent client who was trying to bring reason to a public policy debate wrote 'Your work did exactly what we had hoped for. It allowed us to change the message and change the messenger. By injecting an entire new equation into the formula, it not only changed the message, but it allowed us access to groups and the press which otherwise would have been impossible.'  When I was able to share this message with my project team and thank them for a job well done it made my week.  Their efforts made it possible for the client to thank us and the whole project turned into a win-win-win."
