    Pros

    Stable, cafeteria on-site with good prices, very well priced benefits

    Cons

    Very tight with compensation, on the lower end of the scale. Poor processes for a company that claims to live the Toyota Way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce Turnover - pay better.

    I worked at Hach Company

    Pros

    Hach makes quality products and pays at the higher end for compatible companies.

    Cons

    Hach current management is very much stuck on data. The old "analysis paralysis". They are not listening to their field employees. Managers spend more time collecting and reporting data than they do mentoting their direct reports and meeting with Customers.

    I have been working at Hach Company (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This company is still making a profit and there are lots of good people who work here.

    Cons

    The work environment is very stressful because there isn't enough headcount. Work cuts into your personal life because there is neve enough time to get your work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you are trying to move up in your management career stop doing what is best for you and take care of your team. If you would show interest in your team they would work even harder for you.

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

    Pros

    Strong, historic market share and regulated, intransigent customer base.

    Cons

    Core strength is cutting budgets and threatening employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute a REAL management tool based on product line EBIDITA and push business unit decision making to business units with P&L's based on 2-year planning horizons....rather than 4-months.

    Nano management

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Hach Company

    Pros

    Good benefits, compensation and great salespeople. A very good product line, strong installed base, brand recognition within the water utility market.

    Cons

    The current leadership does not know how to empower their very capable salesforce so that they can do what they do best...SELL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop doing what you are doing and try to be realistic in your expectations, learn from your mistakes and encourage, not discourage your feet on the street, Give them more time to do what you hired them to do, not all of the admin tasks that only serve your needs for extreme oversight of activities. Can you afford on-going turnover events? Your competition thrives on these and uses them to create doubt in the customer's mind about the stability of your company. Human capital is precious, respect it and it will respect you in return.

    Pros

    Great area to live in. Decent pay. Good benefits. If you work hard you can make out alright and afford to live comfortably in this nice community. Stable financially.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance. There seems to be crony mentality. Takes a long time to get a job and takes a while to become team member. Not very open to new ideas. Very conservative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why the high turnover rate? Take some calculated risks.
