    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's good ideas for the future, but this needs to be pushed throughout the company--some people do not support well.

    I worked at NCH full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at NCH

    Pros

    Able to skate by due to so much going on, no one realizes stuff isn't getting done because everybody thinks someone else is responsible for it so it just never gets done.

    Cons

    This billion dollar company is still being run like a mom and pop shop. Budgets are so strict some departments still have typewriters and are just unable to properly do their job...frustrated with not being provided adequate tools to do their job (but then get disappointing performance reviews for not doing a good/proper job) people get fed up and quit after 1-3 years. I feel their pain.
    Every single employee does the bare minimum to skate by and get their paycheck. There is no company pride.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your wallet! You gotta spend money to make money. And remember every person below you needs to be treated like a human.

    Pros

    Pleasant work environment, fitness center.

    Cons

    Poor overall communication between management and mid-managers. Lack of clarity and alignment around corporate strategic goals. Limited transparency around corporate problems/challenges inhibits ability to resolve them cross-functionally. Industry is in decline.

    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
