    I have been working at NCH

    Pros

    Able to skate by due to so much going on, no one realizes stuff isn't getting done because everybody thinks someone else is responsible for it so it just never gets done.

    Cons

    This billion dollar company is still being run like a mom and pop shop. Budgets are so strict some departments still have typewriters and are just unable to properly do their job...frustrated with not being provided adequate tools to do their job (but then get disappointing performance reviews for not doing a good/proper job) people get fed up and quit after 1-3 years. I feel their pain.
    Every single employee does the bare minimum to skate by and get their paycheck. There is no company pride.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your wallet! You gotta spend money to make money. And remember every person below you needs to be treated like a human.

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

    Pros

    Value based products promote loyalty to rep and company. Uncapped earning potential. Recession resistant. Company very loyal to hard working, high attitude people. Best outside sales training in the business.

    Cons

    Could be more up to date in the technology department...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote ways to connect the outside sales force with each other.

    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

    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

    I have been working at NCH full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    NCH is a very focused and growth oriented company with extra attention on developing new partnerships. We've made the INC 500/5000 list for exceptional growth by focusing on delivering the WOW to our employees and clients. We've partnered with some of the most reputable companies in America and continue build on those partnerships. The founder, Cort W. Christie, is a very dedicated professional that really cares about his business, clients and employees. Cort makes every attempt to make the climate fun and family oriented through the NCH Fun Squad! I'm very proud to be a part of such a great organization and look forward to a long career here!

    Cons

    We're not perfect! We're constantly working to improve our systems and "Deliver the WOW" to our clients. We fall short occasionally, but we care enough to do something about it. We're always looking for talented individuals to take us to that next level.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, talented coworkers, on site gym and cafe, upper management seems to listen, many people have worked here 10, 20 or 30+ years. Good insurance benefits. Generous incentives and bonuses - they do reward hard working, smart people here. I enjoy my job at NCH.

    Cons

    The IT department could be a little better - I'm still running Excel 2003 on my computer. Some people do have Excel 2010, so I guess we are all being slowly upgraded. There are multiple systems to learn, and no real training on how to use them when you are first hired. You will need to teach yourself a lot. Some of the furnishings and equipment (like phones) are probably 20 years old, but it's a minor issue.

    Pros

    This is a Global based company with a wide variety of services & products. The company is pretty stable and has good benefits.

    Cons

    The hard work isn't always recognized by individual contributors. Thinking outside the box is not viewed in a positive light from all the business areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a better communication strategy. Let your direct reports and their employees know expectations and vision
