    I have been working at NCH full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family Owned, worldwide company that is diversified. Solid history. Great mentors. Advancement opportunities. Financially secure.

    Cons

    Slow growth, not an upcoming field such as internet or computer industry.

    Advice to Management

    On the chemical side - listen to the manager's running he branches as to what they are experiencing in the workforce (hiring, retaining associates). Get back to customer service at a branch level.

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

    Pros

    They're flexible with schedules and the associates are really nice people.

    Cons

    The supervisors and vp are the worst. They don't like independent thinking and are stuck in a business model from the 50's. You come second to field reps and constantly lose orders to them. So, don't count on a high commission or base pay. There's no room for advancement and you don't get raises. If you ask for one Gary just tells you to sell more. You're not allowed to be involved with company wide events. (Gary sends emails saying so but we always sneak down stairs for a minute or two.) You also stay at the same 2 weeks of PTO no matter how long you've worked here.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on product knowledge instead of just teaching the gears. I myself asked about the differences in motor oil a few times the past couple of years and have yet to get a reply. Stop the competition with field reps and in house reps, it's turning your people against each other. And for the love of everything good, update staffware and clean up old accounts!

    I have been working at NCH full-time

    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 have been working at NCH full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Certain (very few) departments allow flexibility with hours and flex time. There is also an on-site cafeteria during work hours.

    Cons

    Obvious favoritism by senior managers, salary not competitive to market, poor communication between management and workers. Expensive benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Survey the workforce to see true feelings​ and attitudes​ toward the company. Adjust compensation to meet the market or increase other benefits
