    I have been working at Neogen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's such a laid back company. This has been my all time favorite job. Good benefits. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    The salary needs to be higher. Neogen likes to keep putting more responsibities on your plate without giving you a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equal.

    I have been working at Neogen

    Pros

    Neogen 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.

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Communication between departments should improve.

    I have been working at Neogen full-time

    Pros

    Friendly management, fun environment, and just a lot of feel good vibes from a company that's doing "good" work. Solid training and a visible promote-from-within policy. Reasonably-priced health coverage, good 401k and stock purchase plan, and generous time off allowances.

    Cons

    Staffing often feels inadequate. The low wage makes it impossible to really utilize the benefits. Seriously, I have to explain to people all of the other positives of working here so they don't think I'm insane when I tell them I'm making $2/hour less than market. Few coworkers I know can afford to contribute to their own 401k and none can afford to take advantage of the stock purchase plan (which is a tremendous perk if you have the money to spend).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every year we're told we're awesome, that we've had huge income growth, and that our products are just selling themselves. So can you maybe look at increasing the wage scale? Sales people get great commissions and perks. It would be nice if the remaining rank and file did as well.

    I have been working at Neogen

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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