    Pros

    They truly care about their employees and community. They offered Farmer's Market $$$ every month and the Farmers Market came right onsite. They had company luncheons with locally sourced and organic food and the daily snack and coffee bar. Availability of free product was awesome as well.

    Cons

    Location for some. Southern Vermont isn't close to any metropolitan area. It's not the most lively or fun place to live.

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be to come out and interact with employees more often on a day to day.

    Pros

    Organic snacks, nice garden, the occasional chipmunk and cool birds scurring around outside.

    Cons

    Backbiting in the warehouse, paticularly production. Workers seem to be walking around on eggshells, too afraid to speak up when a disservice is being done to them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a supervisor who isn't afraid to get into the mix and see the real personality of the employees. Don't turn a blind eye!

    Pros

    Most of the people that at NC are really wonderful. The company offers great benefits, yoga, gardening, healthy snacks and a trip to Costa Rica. The products are ones you can believe in.

    Cons

    The managers and directors are awful at managing people. They demotivate and use scare tactics to get what they want. Several managers were reported to HR for multiple abuses and nothing was ever done. Sad too because the people that complained were wonderful and dedicated employees. Once you cross someone in their inner circle you should pack your bags. It was almost impossible to get promoted unless you were a friend of management.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house.

    Pros

    Company culture supports personal health with onsite chi gong and meditation classes, organic snacks, a walking trail and a vegetable garden, as well as an employee allowance for purchasing supplements.

    Cons

    Cubicle environment. Increasingly corporate atmosphere as a result of the acquisition by Proctor and Gamble, including bureaucratic hangups and shifting politics.

    Advice to Management

    The cubicle environment is not for everyone and does not always encourage productivity. Greater flexibility around working remotely would help.
