    I worked at NCH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice enough office, the parent company seems to care about the employees, not so much in the telesales dept. Nice workout room. Decent on-site restaurant.

    Cons

    Zero ability to advance even though their employment ad states otherwise. One man show rules the roost. A lot of wasted talent collectively. There are some very sharp people working in the dept who are being held back. The parent will never know how these human resources are being wasted. Really low pay, calling the same dead accounts month after month. Insurance costs are high for what you get.

    Advice to Management

    Look around. See who really wants to help the dept. succeed. Take advantage of the experience of those working for you. 86 the twice a day roll call, these are grown ups.

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

    Pros

    My only positive comment about this place was that the cubicles were big and not shared so you had a little bit of privacy. The best part of the day was walking out of the door at 5:00 pm.

    Cons

    Stagnate business with very little growth. No training, no set expectations, and no guidance led to not knowing how to do your job and then reprimands for not doing your job correctly. It was a constant cycle of asking for training, not getting the appropriate training, and then being told you aren't doing your job correctly. There is no team work as no one is willing to help you out. The consensus tends to be "that's not my job". Very old school in management style. Likes to utilize a skeleton crew so you will be overworked and underpaid. Outdated equipment and supplies makes it extremely difficult to do your job. Forget about working from home! It takes an act of God to get the appropriate permissions and equipment needed to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    I have no confidence in management whatsoever. I went to several managers with concerns and questions which they were completely dismissive about.

    Pros

    - Autonomy to make impactful decisions - Lean environment allows associates to gain experience and take on stretch assignments - Family oriented culture

    Cons

    - Culture not for everyone - if you are used to a lot of resources and huge support teams, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow your associates to help shape the future of the organization through innovation.


  6. Temp

    Pros

    Pros of working at NCH would be the employee recognition.

    Cons

    Since I was only there temporarily I do not have any cons for working at NCH.

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

    Pros

    The pay is competitive for a Oil & Gas chemical company. The company has many innovative products. A lot of potential for their future.

    Cons

    Understand that these may be just in my area (Midland to Eldorado) Manager likes to curse you out when he gets upset. They don't have an on-call schedule, so you could work every weekend. Their motto is suck it up and do it, opposed to let's figure out how to get it done. The management has no DOT past experience, so they want you to drive equipment that'll get you red flagged and then write you up for getting ticketed. If you do expense anything out, the likelihood of you being repaid all your money is about 10 %.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your division managers to have one on one sit down with a service and account managing personnel, and not just the area manager, who's going to tell you what he wants, which is not always the truth.

    Pros

    Products that are needed in several industries. Not micromanaged.

    Cons

    Realize that all territories are different so don't compare one rep to another
