    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NSF International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free pop, gym access, unlimited pens, markers and sticky notes. Absolutely nothing whatsoever at all ever for infinity and beyond and back again.

    Cons

    Management and work environment resembles a Chuck-E-Cheese. The pay. Opportunity for advancement. Getting screwed over. Management picking favorites. Major safely concerns happening daily but management is too busy worrying about the placement of a drink cart. Anyways, it doesn’t matter the micro lab will be shut down sooner than later.

    I have been working at NSF International full-time

    Pros

    -Free coffee and cafeteria drinks -Free cake once a month to celebrate birthdays -Large holiday party with (taxed) prize give away -Management seems approachable and positive (sometimes.)

    Cons

    -Non competitive pay -Unequal pay between departments -Basic benefits at best. NO SICK DAYS!! (Where's the commitment to public health?) -Management plays favorites, and doesn't even try to conceal the nepotism. -No promotions within. External applicants consistently chosen. -Lab staff treated like peasants and paid very poorly. -Janitors, as well as other positions requiring only a high school diploma, compensated better than the entire lab staff with bachelor's and master's degrees. -In some cases, co-workers will do whatever it takes to climb the ranks. I've seen the same three employees get 4 people fired since November. (5 months) These three were also promoted in secrecy.

    Pros

    Nice building and free pop.

    Cons

    To say the management is abusive would be a disservice to abusive managers. This place is beyond dysfunctional. The worst employees are promoted, while the best employees are given the most degrading tasks and left to toil in dead end positions. Employees are punished for approaching HR about unfair treatment. You are unable to create a career path and develop yourself if you are not one of the favored employees. If you have a family and care about them this is not the place for you. I witnessed one employee be punished and degraded for asking for 3 additional days of vacation to spend with his newborn because she had to have several emergency surgeries. The employee was told he did not care enough about NSF and that he did not have a plan for someone to do his work in his absence.
