    Workload is hard to manage.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NSF International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    None to mention at all

    Cons

    Low pay, low moral, long hours. Unrewarding work. Testing side bends the rules often to get products through certification. Engineering will test till they get a pass rating just to get the product through the doors. Management reaps the rewards while hourly workers get nothing. Cash flow is king - don't ever say fail. say discrepancy in test procedure atmosphere.

    I worked at NSF International for more than a year

    Pros

    They do a good job at pretending to care about issues

    Cons

    The company is completely driven by the bottom line. You have to be bringing in revenue to be an asset. Meanwhile they make believe to the outside world that they are non profit or a not for profit company.

    "Not a Long Term Career Company"

    I worked at NSF International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Clean facility, Great Location, Great Laboratory Facilities and Staff.

    Cons

    Not a good place to work if you are a woman or a person of color. If you decide to work for this company be sure to stay in the laboratory departments where a long term career is possible. Steer clear of all project management positions as they are not conducive to someone that has a family or a home life. Project managers are expected to be on call 24/7 without the matching pay or recognition.

    I have been working at NSF International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers, outside of management, are passionate about the organic industry and really want to make a difference.

    Cons

    Increased "opportunity" comes with more workload, no compensation, no acknowledgement, and no vertical growth opportunity. Organic certification is getting brushed aside by management, all it's forces are being dumped into food safety. The brunt of this is felt by employees and clients. Good luck NSF.

    I worked at NSF International

    Pros

    Free fountain soda. Ample parking.

    Cons

    No training. Incompetent management. Pass-the-buck, blame everyone else for the mistakes we make mentality. Upper management gives themselves huge annual bonuses while only the highest-rated (read: brown nosing) employees get maximum 3% annual raise (but that's normal in the U.S.). Endless meaningless paperwork. Nothing more than a temp. job for recent graduates before they jump to something worthwhile.
