    Fair Pay for a 40 hr wk. But as management you are consistently expected to run understaffed and have no home life.

    Pros

    Interesting people to work with, lots of opportunities to increase your knowledge base, skill set and experience if you are willing/ able to put in tons of extra hours, senior management is reasonable and respectful of employees and really have a genuine desire to have a stable, debt free company that will not lay off employees. Senior Management, the Board of Directors and Officers of the company make considerably less money than they would at other companies of the similar size. Neogen also spends a good chuck of change every year on a very nice Christmas party, summer picnic and other events for employees and their families.

    Cons

    Senior management, while reasonable most of the time has a hardline stance on requiring departments to run understaffed in order to save money. A large number of employees company wide have a challenging time working so many hours and covering vacations, etc. When you look at the total compensation pkg vs. hours you work I think it comes in pretty low. They also do not allow comp time for salaried employees and there is no allowance for flex time for any employee. It is common for un or underqualified people to obtain positions because they are friends or neighbors of the senior management team, but I suppose that occurs in most work places. Neogen has a higher turnover than other companies of it's size and the primary reason is salary and work life balance. It is a great place to expand your skills, learn and grow and then move on to a better opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of your best and brightest leave because they feel unappreciated and undervalued in total compensation vs. hours worked. Please consider revising flex/comp/pto plans and salary structure.

    Pros

    Good products, attend great trade shows.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. All that goes on in that company is everyone trying to blame everyone else for work that hasn't been done. Pay is horrible unless you are from Marion County.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to communicate better. There is no communication in that building. Also, check out your managers and try to figure out what they are actually doing.
