I have been working at NCH part-time
Very employee oriented, supportive managers - very upbeat atmosphere
No cons at this time
I worked at NCH full-time (More than a year)
(Indy plant only)
You are the sole lab tech for the facility so you have some control over how your day is planned (when to clean up/prep for tests (or not)/run lab tests, etc.)
Tues-Fri 10 hour days and extra vacation incentives throughout the year! (over 2 weeks starting out, and never work a holiday)
Competitive pay (~22/hour?) especially for factory worker average and for QC lab techs (and consistent raises every year)
Job security (there will never by "company layoffs/budget cuts" that threaten your job)
Can drink/snack throughout the day at your computer (not including factory workers)
No room for promotion (small plant, so there is no corporate ladder to climb, only hanging out until someone else retires)
If you are someone who is ALWAYS late/missing you will probably be fired (again- you are the SOLE lab tech) but planned vacations are not a problem
Lots of walking/standing to collect and dispose of samples and run lab tests
You are a human dishwasher
Uniforms (but the lab tech doesn't have to use them and is provided lab coats, but then you will ruin your clothes) and steel-toed boots mandatory
Starts out at $14/hour and slowly increases to $22 over 2 years.
It's not a "dream job". There's no "status" with this job. But you could do WAY WORSE. The job is kind of cool and there's often some catastrophe going on that you can amuse your friends/family with.

Advice to Management
I have been working at NCH full-time (Less than a year)
Good work/life balance, talented coworkers, on site gym and cafe, upper management seems to listen, many people have worked here 10, 20 or 30+ years. Good insurance benefits. Generous incentives and bonuses - they do reward hard working, smart people here. I enjoy my job at NCH.
The IT department could be a little better - I'm still running Excel 2003 on my computer. Some people do have Excel 2010, so I guess we are all being slowly upgraded. There are multiple systems to learn, and no real training on how to use them when you are first hired. You will need to teach yourself a lot. Some of the furnishings and equipment (like phones) are probably 20 years old, but it's a minor issue.
great company to work for.
there is a lack of advancement opportunities
Family owned, large corporation, big headquarters
low salaries and bonuses. Salary growth is slow and small
Great Company with good leaders in the field
I don't see anything wrong with this company.

Pros of working at NCH would be the employee recognition.
Since I was only there temporarily I do not have any cons for working at NCH.

- Autonomy to make impactful decisions
- Lean environment allows associates to gain experience and take on stretch assignments
- Family oriented culture
- Culture not for everyone - if you are used to a lot of resources and huge support teams, this is not the place for you.
