Overall it was good up until the point of my position being suddenly eliminated on a Tuesday

Network Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
Macon, GA (US)

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

ProsMany 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.

ConsUnless 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 Senior ManagementWhen 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.

Great Company but Low Pay for Non-Managers

Telephone Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Irving, TX (US)

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

ProsGreat people, great benefits, employee oriented company.

ConsLimited growth opportunities. Below average pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook 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.

Highly Micromanaged

Outside Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD (US)

I have been working at NCH

ProsSales training program in St Louis did a good job of teaching someone how to deal with any conceivable objection.

ConsChemsearch had me prospecting over 90% of time. Their sales training program wanted us to utilize a whole host of "novelties" (GIVEAWAY GIFTS) during our initial warmup before sales pitch. As an example, secretary/"gatekeepers' would be given hand lotion, most male prospects would be given a pliers plus multitool or fishing filet knife during warmup.
My boss wanted me to make "70 dials" every Monday to get appointments with buyers! He would call me different times to know how many 'dials I had made thus far along with how appointments I had made. Then he would ride with me every week in field and break down every sales call to what I did right and wrong. Ultimately, I could not take the boss constantly calling me at home along with micromanaging sales calls so I happily RESIGNED ! Ironically enough, the day I resigned, I recieved a company memo showing, I was top dog for number of new accounts.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf I am getting the new accounts for your company.....then leave me alone !!! Let me adopt my own sales approach which worked ! If your own trainers boast in class that 60-70% of new hires in class wont be here one year from now, then you have a problem !!! I wrote this review after seeing Chemsearch running employment ads again for each of 2 major cities in my state.

Great most of the time.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Irving, TX (US)

I have been working at NCH

ProsNCH as a company is great! The people are some of the best I have worked with.

ConsManagement does not know what they are doing. They will lie on your review if they do not like you.
They believe in deliverables only, they do not care about quality. It was not always this way.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people with respect. Be honorable, if you do not like them, do not lie on them. Quality code is important, because that is less support you will have to do. Do not worry about checking off your list only.

Overall it is a good company. Just as most businesses, there is always room for improvement.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NCH

ProsCompany's benefits appear to be in-line with other companies. Company recently instituted an on-line performance measurement system to measure one's performance which is a step forward.

ConsCompany's computer systems, software and applications could afford to be refreshed and would bring them in-line with other businesses and corporations.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should seriously consider updating the computer systems, software and applications as it will be an opportunity to improve employee morale.

I have mostly enjoyed working here but very few people make "good" money.

Account Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at NCH

Prosflexible job where you are your own boss. Ability to grow business with some help from company. If you get lucky and receive some accounts you can do well. Once established the job really can be fun where you are seeing people you know and like and selling them products they like using.

ConsNo established accounts to begin with or if you receive them they are not good accounts. Antiquated sales support. They still have panelling at corporate! Very expensive product. If your customers do not really like you good luck.

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp new employees to stay with the company with a longer base and some new accounts. The ramp up is a killer.
