    Pros

    Steady and frugle, yes that is the only pro.

    Cons

    Technology, lack of budget, poor management, unqualified directors with egos who take every opportunity to fail to lead, inspire or communicate effectively with their teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible, allow work from home, quit watching clocks, respect your employees. Get some some management training for those IT managers

    Former Employee - Receiving Supervisor in Irving, TX

    I worked at NCH full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    None really.... We were off on weekends? That's about it. There was never really anything good going on there.

    Cons

    I was a receiving supervisor at the Irving plant. I was terminated with no cause. I was trained for two days and thrown out in my own. My team wasn't allowed to work overtime but everyone else did, putting us constantly behind. When I filed for unemployment they lied and am said I had been written up multiple times with no proof. Because I never had a reprimand. They told the unemployment office I wasn't qualified to do my job... I was there 13 months. Worst company ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should all be let go.

    I have been working at NCH full-time (less than a 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.

    Former Employee - Account Represnetative in Irving, TX

    I worked at NCH full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back working atmosphere in the telephone sales department - certified labs, chemsearch, etc
    No actual quota, just get some sales during the week and they leave you alone, get off early on Fridays alot.

    Cons

    They give the good account to the new people to fool them into thinking it is an easy job to make commissions, pay is so low you cannot survive, if you good in the sales dept they do not want to move you out of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Data Analyst in Irving, TX

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

    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

    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.
