    Pros

    You get great treatment coming in the door, but the new wears off very quickly.

    Cons

    If you aren't a great sales representative, you are treated as a second-class citizen, and looked at as if you aren't worthy of updated equipment, a decent raise, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting all the money in your own pocket and catch up with the times. Computers should be kept updated and replaced before they quit functioning. After all, computers are our livelihood.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    None really.... We were off on weekends? That's about it. There was never really anything good going on there.

    Cons

    I was a receiving supervisor at the Irving plant. I was terminated with no cause. I was trained for two days and thrown out in my own. My team wasn't allowed to work overtime but everyone else did, putting us constantly behind. When I filed for unemployment they lied and am said I had been written up multiple times with no proof. Because I never had a reprimand. They told the unemployment office I wasn't qualified to do my job... I was there 13 months. Worst company ever.

    Advice to Management

    You should all be let go.

    Pros

    Good earning potential if you don't live in a declining area

    Cons

    Horrible management, awful marketing, non-existent knowledge of trends
    Company is doomed to fail. No interest in employee input. Disengaged account managers due to management. No hope in sight. Run!

    Advice to Management

    Get lost! Marketing should never run a company. Your eyes and ears are the people on the street not the incompetent marketing clowns sitting behind their desks.

    Pros

    Certified Labs has some of the best sales training that quickly gets you up to speed to sell in the field. The support system fosters a great culture throughout all levels of the company. Your success is directly related with your work effort. The company really sets you up for success. I would recommend to a friend

    Cons

    For some people this may be a con. In order to be successful you have to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep employee engagement high.

    Pros

    - Fantastic training, sales reps are treated like gold.
    - High quality products I am proud to sell.
    - Uncapped commissions and plenty of opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    - Product line is sold based on value so you need to be a good sales person not an order-taker.
    - We are in the process of updating a lot of our presentations and technology, but it's getting way better.

    Advice to Management

    Things seem to take a long time to get accomplished and there is some resistance to the changes that are happening at the company, but that is far outweighed by the company culture. I have yet to meet someone that wasn't immediately likable. I would also like to see some web based marketing improvements.

    Pros

    The people here really care about you and the management team is great. You can set your own pace and this company is constantly growing. You can make as much or as little as you want. There are also great opportunities to grow within the company. This could absolutely be my last stop.

    Cons

    If you are use to selling on price this job is not for you. The products will always cost more than others on the market but they are the best and that's a fact.
