    Solid company, you own your development, bureaucratic, not meritocracy, impact by sharing success with in-crowd.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAbility to work on meaningful projects and have impact. The trick to this is making middle management central to any innovation or major contribution.

    ConsPeople hoard power positions and block attempts for people to get foot into established projects out of fear of becoming obsolete or being out shined.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the smart, young employees show what they know and don't let middle management control what smart employees have to offer. You might discover the next innovation within the halls and walls if you allow direct line of sight to leadership.

    Exceptionally well-run, organization that places people in position to be successful

    Print Services Analyst II (Former Employee) Racine, WI

    ProsThe leadership with whom I worked was confident in their selection of me, therefore, when I made recommendations that were in the best interest of the organization, they implemented change. The review of the SWOT analysis was efficient, thereby realizing (close to) immediate benefit by the implementation of change in a most timely manner.

    ConsThe con I experienced was with the recruiting company & the way they handled the financial aspect of the opportunity.

    I didn't really have any bad experiences with SC Johnson aside from consulting work that led me to live in WI during the winter months.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay closer attention to what is happening when you contract with a recruiting company for consultants / contractors.

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