    I worked at NCH full-time

    Pros

    It can be a great place to start right out of school though compensation is a little less than the norm. NCH is a stable company with low turnover. Some people have worked there for twenty, thirty or more years; while some have only been there a couple. There's not a lot of long work hours and there is at least a chance for upward career progression. Unlike many companies weathering the recession, they still have a pretty good benefits package.

    Cons

    If you're looking for cutting edge technology and transferable skills... look elsewhere. They're definitely stuck in the 70s and 80s depending on the division. There are some bright spots but often they fade quickly. Like any corporation, there is the politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the 21st century and innovation with be the key to survival. Doing the same ol same ol will leave you withering on the vine.

    I have been working at NCH

    Pros

    Able to skate by due to so much going on, no one realizes stuff isn't getting done because everybody thinks someone else is responsible for it so it just never gets done.

    Cons

    This billion dollar company is still being run like a mom and pop shop. Budgets are so strict some departments still have typewriters and are just unable to properly do their job...frustrated with not being provided adequate tools to do their job (but then get disappointing performance reviews for not doing a good/proper job) people get fed up and quit after 1-3 years. I feel their pain.
    Every single employee does the bare minimum to skate by and get their paycheck. There is no company pride.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your wallet! You gotta spend money to make money. And remember every person below you needs to be treated like a human.

    I worked at NCH

    Pros

    Pleasant work environment, fitness center.

    Cons

    Poor overall communication between management and mid-managers. Lack of clarity and alignment around corporate strategic goals. Limited transparency around corporate problems/challenges inhibits ability to resolve them cross-functionally. Industry is in decline.

    Pros

    This is a Global based company with a wide variety of services & products. The company is pretty stable and has good benefits.

    Cons

    The hard work isn't always recognized by individual contributors. Thinking outside the box is not viewed in a positive light from all the business areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a better communication strategy. Let your direct reports and their employees know expectations and vision

    I have been working at NCH full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many divisions of different products with varying IT needs and requirements helped to provide exposure to a broad range of technology. Company upgraded entire infrastructure during my employment which allowed a good look at how things get done at all levels in that dept.

    Cons

    Unless you are willing to relocate to TX in the United States, upper level IT jobs are not there as all North American support is generally done out of HQ in Irving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you acquire a company with competent personnel, macromanagement can be just as bad as micromanagement. An effort should be made to bring those people on as part of the team if they are kept through the acquisition process.

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, employee oriented company.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities. Below average pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for qualified employees within the current ranks to fill needs. Many employees have much more experience and talent than the company realizes. Employees are pigeonholed into one division and unable to display all of their attributes.
