    Pros

    Prior to 2001, NCH Canada Inc. was a fantastic company to work for until the likes of Howard Shiller, Fern Laniel, Robert Vandrish, Reuben Isaacs all left. Then the downfall trend began with the in-flow of pretentious no good backstabbers, absolutely and morally corrupt bunch. The Levi's used to have a good thing going, brilliant products and a great sales and company staff. Sad to see NCH Canada Inc.barely exists today. Excellent training for the sales team.

    Cons

    Excellent but extremely expensive specialty chemicals.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the basic principles of the company exists because of it's Sales Team. Do not price yourself out of the market. Treat people based on the merits, and nothing else. Respect to all, regardless.

    I have been working at NCH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Probably the best part of working for NCH is the people. There are a vast amount of people that are there to build you up, motivate and help with a smile. I have gained many friends working here and do enjoy the little perks that are given for doing a good job.

    Cons

    Management really doesn't care about you doing good (besides little incentives) but if you slack even a little, your job will be threatened. There's practically no communication between departments and it's very difficult to be effecient and create good customer service in a timely manner. Some departments are treated as less than the others. For instance, we had Associate Appreciation Week and my direct manager sent everyone an email saying that we were not allowed to participate even though we are sales and are in fact an associate. Some departments do not get raises (like mine) and we really have zero room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Work better on communication with other departments
    If a person works hard on a sale, do not give it to an outside sales rep(It's deflating and multiple people quit every year for this reason)
    Be fair, If you work hard then there should be room for advancement
