    I worked at NCH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good products. Nice buildings. Clean restrooms. 40 hour work week. Free coffee. Climate controlled. Sorry...running out of good things to say.

    Cons

    NO advancement. Terrible Pay. Lazy middle management. Ridiculous "meetings" roll call. Very little training on products. Did I say LAZY middle management. "Operations" department? Pretty sure none of the managers have ever heard of Linkedin or other professional networking websites.

    Advice to Management

    Did you ever hear of training? How in the world can a rep "sell" against competition when they don't even know what they're selling and what the competition is doing? Stop saying there are advancement opportunities in your employment ad. It's just not true.

    Pros

    Quality products. Well known as being the most expensive products out there with the quality being the same as everyone else.

    Poor management. Poor customer support. They can't wait to terminate you so they can give your accounts to a senior agent.

    I worked at NCH full-time

    Pros

    - Some folks are friendly.

    Cons

    - No growth
    - I worked in ERP implementations, Stay away from IT department.
    - Cheap politics, No professional behavior at all.
    - Managers think they are flexible, have skills.., but you see old school approach
    - If you need "just" a job, Don't care anything else.. this is the place

    Advice to Management

    - Senior Management needs to think of new ideas, new culture.
