    Pros

    International Experience with multiple opportunities to travel abroad

    Cons

    The people do not matter, executive leadership care only about the bottom line and the dates of projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start remembering that the company is as good as its people

    Pros

    good people; some departments really want to invest in their employees

    Cons

    Very hierarchical and political environment; very low pay in comparison to other organizations; not a forward thinking organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more, everyone there talks about leaving as soon as they get a better offer elsewhere. You are losing talent.

  3.  

    Well established company, been around for many years, stable. You could have a career here.

    I worked at NCH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked for Certified Labs, a NCH division. They provided extensive training, and support for me and the rest of the sales team. Management is really respectful, and do a pretty good job. Pay can be decent if you're willing to break your back everyday.

    Cons

    NCH's umbrella of companies creates a conflicting battle for business which is absolutely pointless! Literally the same exact products with different labels, and multiple reps in the same area. This is such a pain to deal with. Expense compensation is TERRIBLE. With all of the gifts they want you to buy clients and potential clients, and the gas and car damage from driving everywhere, the $200 a month is an absolute joke. Also, the industry in which you'll be working is dirty.

    Be prepared to work this job from the moment you wake up, until you go to bed at night. Organizing all of your leads, clients, etc etc, while processing orders (yep, you have to do that too), when you get home from work, you'll spend 3 hours on the computer and then your day is completely gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company makes an extreme amount of money each year. Show some love to your reps in the field who drive their own vehicles almost 50,000 miles a year. Find a more efficient way for reps to enter orders. iPads would make sense. Boom, you place the order right there! Listen up management!

    Rampant politics at top management

    More emphasis on short term goal rather then organic growth

    Pros

    All about top line growth. Good people at lower ranks. Sr. leadership is disconnected. Say they want change, but don't want to rock boat...

    Cons

    Very political, hostile, dysfunctional environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your good people, don't believe everything you hear from executives.... The culture is crumbling around you....

    I worked at NCH

    Pros

    Good R&D and lab assistance for projects

    Cons

    Too much of a sales admin department, not enough real marketing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue making good products, just review the pricing metrics.
