    I have been working at Neogen full-time

    Pros

    Great people, great health benefits and decent number of vacation days. The work is never difficult but sometimes complex.

    Cons

    The pay. Way below average, and they really push for a lot of overtime. This sucks if you're salary.

    Advice to Management

    More pay. Make it worth the trouble.

    Former Intern - Graphic Designer Intern in East Lansing, MI

    I worked at Neogen as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work I did and the people I worked with. Everyone was very friendly and the work load was reasonable.

    Cons

    I didn't have a lot of creative freedom or creative direction. I think I could have benefited more from having more direction.

    Advice to Management

    The reason for internships is to provide an educational environment and serve as a mentor and I believe that there could have been more teaching and assisting in understanding design rather that just getting the work done.

    I worked at Neogen

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, fascinating work

    Cons

    High expectations, low reward unless in sales

    Advice to Management

    Pay based on market value of skills asked and possessed by employees, merit increases rather than tiny cost of living raises

    Pros

    Products sell themselves. Flexible. Employees are generally nice, good people. It is located in an old school building, which is cool (but also hot).

    Cons

    Low pay. Senior management seems to be stuck in traditional, conservative rut about employees and sales techniques. There is a lack of new products and ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more gender equality and technical support for new hires. Allow for more flexibility for working out of home.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Fairly secure place to work, no layoffs.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. If recognition or advancement were options it would help. Poor communication and cooperation between departments. Office cultures inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your good stand in the way of your better. Consider strategies that other companies have been successful with.

    Pros

    The employees are great people to work with. There is also a good potential for upward mobility and opportunities for different jobs within the company.

    Cons

    Tons of work and responsibility for little compensation. General lack of communication and organization. High rate of turnover means that few people have a very comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more so they will stick with the company and not leave as soon as they have experience.
