    Freedom and working with farmers.

    Cons

    Downhill management and no challenging to anyone Branch Management and up. No one takes responsibility for mistakes except lowest employees.

    Start asking questions of your people in the trenches and listen to their thoughts and ideas. Helena has great products but very poor Management.

    I worked at Helena Chemical full-time

    Pros

    Corporate is well organized and sets reasonable policies.

    Cons

    Regional and district managers only focus on sales and the salesmen. They tend to put treatment of staff and employees behind salesmen's performance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the complaints of lower managers. There will come a time when the "live to work" generations are retired, and you will have a hard time finding people to work 80-100 hour work weeks with poor compensation.

    I have been working at Helena Chemical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work environment is good but very dependent on your location. A lot of responsibilities that keeps the job always changing and fast paced. Corporate assistance is great everyone is very helpful and kind. Below ratings are based on location and/division and not the corporate office.

    Cons

    Locations offer little to no advancement opportunities. The office coordinator is more like a senior level office administrator without the compensation. Pay scale is very inconsistent. Paid by title not performance or amount of responsibility.

    Better training
