    I have been working at Balchem full-time

    Pros

    Balchem is a growing company that is innovative and has diverse business units. The CEO is constantly looking for opportunities to grow the business segments. Great coworkers, flexibility on work schedule when needed, opportunity to advance from within, dynamic atmosphere, and decent pay. Great benefits.

    Cons

    As with most business today, the work life balance could use some attention. As the business grows, the workforce does not grow as quickly. Employee training is not as important as it has been at other companies I have worked for and could use improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Consider paying attention to the work-life balance more as well as investing in employee training. This is especially important as the company expands and becomes larger. Investing in your people shows that you value them and their efforts.
