    I have been working at Hach Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall, I think that Hach has a bright future. I have never worked someplace that had so many smart, dedicated and considerate people and good people is what makes successful companies really excel.

    The mission of Hach - ensuring water quality for people around the world - really resonates as well. It is evident that this higher-level goal is also top of mind for management, as is developing talent and seeing people grow in their careers.

    Cons

    It is definitely a hard working culture, which can occasionally get in the way of more relaxing time off. There is also not a lot of recognition for people that go above and beyond - seems that is just the expectation.

    Advice to Management

    Get out to Gemba more and really see the work being done. Could give you a new sense of appreciation for how great your employees really are and, perhaps, encourage you to up the rewards and recognition as well.

    Pros

    Hach is a results oriented company that brings both rigor and urgency to everything we focus on. The people are smart, capable, and humble.

    The best part of our work is our Mission: We ensure water quality for people around the world.

    Cons

    We demand a lot of ourselves and each other. If you don't like to stretch and work hard, you need to look elsewhere.

    I have been working at Hach Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with some good people
    Can learn a lot in a short time if willing
    Room for advancement for the right people

    Cons

    High expectations for new employees with minimal training
    Sometimes work is too fast paced
    Sometimes there is not enough work to keep everyone busy
    There is no support from management
    Improper use of Kaizan and 5S
    Favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who are actually doing the work when changes need to be made to help them do their job efficiently and safely. Stop playing favorites. One employee should not be able to say no to great ideas for changes. Policy should be followed always and breaking policy to keep employees due to short staffing or fear of being sued does not show good management skills.
