    I worked at Nalco

    Pros

    Nalco has a large research community where materials and research opportunities are readily available. Chemists are given plenty of time to complete ideas.

    Cons

    Extremely sales driven company to a fault. Since this is truly a commodity industry, innovation is few and far between. Chemists are tasked with inconsequential product reformulations instead of breaking news products. Communication from sales to marketing to research is broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your sales force. Make sure they actually listen to what their customers want. Actually show up when you promise at the customers' sites. Train sales to understand research capabilities so true innovation can happen.

    Pros

    Salary can be seen as a bribe. Other than that no other good reason exists

    Cons

    Very political. All decisions made based on who you know, not effective or good work. Be prepared to collect a check. Give up your career thoughts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more into training and providing a career path for the employees. This will improve performance and overall company profitability
