    Neogen is a fantastic company to work with!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNeogen is one of the top 200 small corporations to work for according to Forbes, however I feel they are better than that even. Amazing stock, opportunity, and experience.

    ConsYou won't be working in a fancy office, as the company purchases older schools and buildings. You start out at a lower wage, but if you put in the time and effort, Neogen looks after you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication between departments should improve.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsConscious management, bringing on new blood from outside the company. Starting to embrace. sociall media outlets, standardizing corporate image across the divisions.Encourages team atmosphere,provided opportunities to mingle with fellow employees outside work. US company keeping jobs in US.

    Unpretentious and solid foundation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Just ok

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

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

    But what do I know anyways?

    Chemist (Current Employee)

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent company for entry level sales and starting your career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNeogen is a strong company with continued annual growth. This environment provides job stability and opportunities for sales and technical training.

    ConsSalaries are meager across the board. Imperative you negotiate up front as all future negotiations are based on your initial compensation benchmark. Salary does not grow at same rate of budget expectations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to and implement Intel provided by your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
