    Pros

    Great team environment. Excellent compensation. Always providing training, and the very latest technology. Possibilities are endless and based upon your own work ethic! I always feel welcome to ask questions or add to meetings and classes. Allows me to have an excellent work/life balance. The company also includes your family and makes them feel a part of the experience. Great management! Great products that you can be confident about selling to customers. 95+years in business and going strong!

    Cons

    If you don't like traveling, it may not be for you. You will put the mileage on your vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    Management has a great handle on positive reinforcement that can be jarring to those used to working at a job where they are micro managed to death. Just continue with positive reinforcement and training. It brings great results!

    Pros

    Best products on the market.
    Excellent training to make you successful.
    It's an easy sell if you follow their training.
    If you stick it out, 3 plus years you can make good money.
    Great reward trip if you make your goals.

    Cons

    Products two to three times as expensive as the competition.
    Company has a bad reputation for poor customer service.
    They only pay $300 a month to cover your expenses, which doesn't even cover gas.
    They didn't believe in taking time off ask to work Christmas Eve, day after Thanksgiving, etc.
    I could go on and on, if $50k a year is a lot of money to you it's a great job. If not, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Return customers are cheaper and more profitable than constantly finding new ones. Focus on building relationships instead of constantly focusing on the quick sale.

  8. Do not work in IT! Business folks are cool. Nothing ground breaking happening. Clock watchers stuck in The dark agaes!

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    You get great treatment coming in the door, but the new wears off very quickly.

    Cons

    If you aren't a great sales representative, you are treated as a second-class citizen, and looked at as if you aren't worthy of updated equipment, a decent raise, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting all the money in your own pocket and catch up with the times. Computers should be kept updated and replaced before they quit functioning. After all, computers are our livelihood.

    Pros

    It can be a great place to start right out of school though compensation is a little less than the norm. NCH is a stable company with low turnover. Some people have worked there for twenty, thirty or more years; while some have only been there a couple. There's not a lot of long work hours and there is at least a chance for upward career progression. Unlike many companies weathering the recession, they still have a pretty good benefits package.

    Cons

    If you're looking for cutting edge technology and transferable skills... look elsewhere. They're definitely stuck in the 70s and 80s depending on the division. There are some bright spots but often they fade quickly. Like any corporation, there is the politics.

    Advice to Management

    This is the 21st century and innovation with be the key to survival. Doing the same ol same ol will leave you withering on the vine.
