    I worked at NCH (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great if you are starting out, but if you are have a masochistic streak.

    Cons

    Senior Management are clueless about the actual day to day mechanics of operations.

    Execs are deluding themselves about business and financial projections. All the decent and knowledgeable senior execs have read the writing on the wall and quit.

    Endless promises of training and support but no delivery on promises even after 3 years+

    Pay is poor given the stress and bullying that goes on daily.

    HR department is brutally ruthless and cold.

    Senior execs do hold and act on grudges frequently. If your face doesn’t fit they will find a way to get rid of you.

    Unless something changes there will be nothing left in 2-3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff.
    Keep your promises.
    Invest in people not impractical management ideologies.

    I have been working at NCH full-time

    Pros

    A good company for people at the beginning of their accounting careers , however , there's not much to learn , since the direct managers haven't got a clue of what's happening on their department

    Cons

    The lack of capable direct managers , very low level of remuneration

    Advice to Management

    Change the Management

    I have been working at NCH full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is incredibly friendly. Many people stay at the company for years, it's not unusual to meet someone who has been at the company 10+ years. NCH is truly a 9-5 company, I never stay late.

    Cons

    I have a lack of work and am bored in my role.

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

    Pros

    The team I worked with at NCH was well rounded- we worked hard and laughed hard. The work was engaging and dynamic, ranging from biological questions to computational ones. Management was effective and good at guiding but not overbearing.

    I left to pursue my PhD, but wouldn't hesitate to recommend NCH to a colleague.

    Cons

    I was very happy with this job. The only con I can think of had nothing to do with NCH- the highway nearby was under construction and made commute times longer than they needed to be.

    Advice to Management

    Charles and Amanda play well off each other. It was a pleasure to work for you guys.

    Pros

    None. Was a great company, but mismanaged. Great people, but getting more and more frustrated. Good people are leaving the ship.

    Cons

    Politics, buroucratisam, dictatorship. One way communication, the mamagement does not listen, only tell. Innovation: the name of the game, but no innovation at all

    Advice to Management
