    I have been working at NCH full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good earning potential if you don't live in a declining area

    Cons

    Horrible management, awful marketing, non-existent knowledge of trends
    Company is doomed to fail. No interest in employee input. Disengaged account managers due to management. No hope in sight. Run!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get lost! Marketing should never run a company. Your eyes and ears are the people on the street not the incompetent marketing clowns sitting behind their desks.

    Current Employee - IT Position in Irving, TX

    I have been working at NCH full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you can get in and deal with management then you might be ok.

    Cons

    Leave applicants hanging for long periods of time then when they finally turn down applicants they say they are going with more qualified applicants but I have a friend in the company that says they usually fill from within or with cheaper applicants to save money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to turn down qualified applicants at least have the decency to be truthful and let them know you never intended to hire someone from the outside, you only posted the position because you had to in order to fill it with a pre-selected internal applicant. Sending out a standard email stating that you are going with more qualified applicants without even looking at the resume or qualifications is bad business.

    Pros

    They do sell good quality products

    Cons

    Management and corporate structure is a joke. They promise the world and don't deliver on anything. They will not give you the pay that you were told or contracted to receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kill yourself.

    Unprofessional treatment of potential job candidates

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at NCH

    Pros

    Great way to polish up on phone interview and practice face to face interview

    Cons

    Hear how you are treated like family, blah blah.. Do not have common courtesy to contact you or respond to status of interview. Met with 2 people that couldn t consistently answer questions regarding compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not leave people hanging in the wind. If you have chosen another candidate then at least send email. Ignoring is very unprofessional

    Current Employee - IT Business Analyst in Irving, TX

    I have been working at NCH full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is persistent. Old fashioned. Located next to Las Colinas. Steady work. Thrifty enough to rarely need to layoff.

    Cons

    Cheap, Top Heavy in Management, Abuse of employees goes overlooked by HR, infrastructure is pitiful. Raises and salaries remain stagnant. Development of staff is non existence. Zero training on how to be Good Managers. People promoted through attrition rather than skill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the staff by embracing them as the company family. Develop and promote staff. be good stewards of the companies funds.

    I have been working at NCH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    NCH is a very well established company, been in business for 90 years. Started as a family owned business and still is. Has manufacturing and sales offices all over the world. Many employees have been with the company forever, the majority of the work force at the headquarters in Irving are over the age of forty.

    Cons

    NCH refuses to update software and supply the tools needed in order to do your job effectively. The majority of the furniture in this building is over 50 years old. They can squeeze a penny so hard Licoln squeals. Every year at annual meeting for employees they annouce how well all of the divisions have done profit wise. Then when annual reviews and raises (less than 3 months later) come around, they proclaim they are unable to give you more than a minisucal amount. If you don't get the money you want coming in you will never get it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only lie to your employees once either when you announce how well you are doing or when raises come around.

    I have been working at NCH full-time

    Pros

    You get great treatment coming in the door, but the new wears off very quickly.

    Cons

    If you aren't a great sales representative, you are treated as a second-class citizen, and looked at as if you aren't worthy of updated equipment, a decent raise, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting all the money in your own pocket and catch up with the times. Computers should be kept updated and replaced before they quit functioning. After all, computers are our livelihood.

    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.
