Work-Life Balance & Continuing Education

When we are not working together, we get out of the office and hike, bike, climb, swim, skate, hang-glide, camp, fish, hunt, run, walk, and play! At Barber-Nichols, we like to promote a healthy work-life balance and continued learning. Whether you want to get a degree, certificate, or learn more from co-workers, we support individual training as well as monthly “Lunch-N-Learns” (we provide lunch). We have so many opportunities for you to learn and grow your career here. And have fun!

Employee Testimonial -Leigh Ann

“My 4+ years at Barber-Nichols has been a whirlwind, a whirlwind of the best kind! Every day is a new adventure and a new learning experience. I am consistently in awe of the people at Barber-Nichols, surrounded by innovators and creative problem solvers. The employees at Barber-Nichols are more than simply co-workers; they are like family. We all support each other and look out for one another. We celebrate each other’s successes, value our relationships with our customers, and take great pride in our collective team victories. While we are busy innovating and protecting freedom, we are also having a whole lot of fun. There is absolutely no place that I would rather work.”

Employee Testimonial -Buki

“Barber-Nichols has been a huge highlight in my career and professional growth. The BN team walks the fine line of an outstanding “people-first” culture while optimizing the effectiveness of each team member (through professional development and dynamic roles and responsibilities); this drives continual achievement of long and short-term organizational goals. “Work-life balance” isn’t just a buzz phrase within our team, it’s a practice that is fostered and leads to improved performance personally, professionally, and organizationally. We are a group of problem solvers at every level, unconventional thinking and ownership are encouraged, which allows for creative solutions to unique problems.”

Employee Testimonial -Ka

“It is an amazing feeling to be able to go to work every morning knowing that I will be working on some of the most highly engineered, technologically advanced, and precision machined products with a team of some of the most brilliant and good-hearted folks. It is rare to find a company that puts up the numbers, takes great care of its customers, and still prioritizes its employees and the community. I am very fortunate and proud to be a part of the BN family.”
