Good company with good benefits and flexibility. Communication and training are areas that can use some improvement

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

Pros

Good work environment. It has inhouse Gym, which helps if you want to maintain your health.

Cons

Training could be improved. It looks like supervisors and management do not have time to answer your questions. They expect you to learn a lot on your own.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more opportunity to motivate your employees. It seems like lot of employees are stuck in their current position. HR should consult with employees to let them know what opportunities exist for future growth.

    Pros

    During training you meet lots of new people.

    Cons

    *****If you're thinking about working here, DON'T!!***** you can probably do much better than grunt work for pennies a day***** A major insult on your intelligence!! Unrealistic expectations for entry level position. Very low salary for the kind of filth you're in day after day. If a client does not like you, it is highly likely that you'll get fired because of it. You'll get fired anyway during training if you don't learn everything about the job within a month of hiring, they'll make up some bullcrap story about how you're not the right employee for the job because you didn't learn EVERYTHING, including the little nuisances there is to learn about the job in a matter of weeks! There is absolutely no communication between you and your direct supervisor whatsoever, until you're being fired! Obviously they are not able to keep positions filled due to a very high attrition rate in this particular position. Time spent driving to these trash dumps that happen to serve greasy hamburgers is NOT factored into your day at all! DO NOT ACCEPT the job offer if you have a life and want to maintain a healthy lifestyle and wish to have a realistic work life balance. If you have a family do not accept this job offer, you'll hardly get to see them if you work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider talking directly to your employee rather than listening to an opinionated uneducated client that has the intelligence of an inbred farmer before you make a decision to terminate. There are two sides to every story. Learn how to speak eloquently if there is an issue that needs to be addressed rather than sending tons of emails. Sure emails are quick but some situations require an
    ACTUAL phone call! Spend A little less time talking to
    Your dogs and cats and a little more time talking with your employees. I learned more from my peers about the ins and out of my position than I did from my actual manager! There is MORE than ONE way to accomplish a task! If it feels like a waste of time then obviously it IS a waste of time!

    Pros

    Well maintained building and laboratories

    Room to move around in the company if your boss lets you (which he/she can block if they want)

    Cons

    Company tends to stray too far from core business into unknown and unproven business ventures

    An above average amount of people get fired due to "under performance", to which employees are given no notice or remediation opportunity

    CEO (and VP's) makes an obscene about of money ($1.2M) for a "non profit" organization

    Some employees are under worked (7 hour days) and some over worked (overtime with no pay)

    Many managers have a profit first, employees second attitude

    Employees are pushed to meet revenue goals, with little regard to project feasibility and preparation

    Goals and due dates are set to unattainable and unsustainable levels

    Employee family members and friends get preferential hiring treatment and are placed above more qualified external candidates

    Many people are fired for not meeting goals or just because their managers do not like them

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
