Do NOT bother coming to this company unless your goal is to stay at a horrible salary with no room for advancement.

No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Neogen full-time (More than a year)

Pros

No pros - I am warning everyone to STAY AWAY, worst job experience I have ever experienced.

Cons

To managers, we are disposable, so they could care less if we stayed or not. Down right worse pay in industry. Zero room for advancement, so expect to stay in the same entry level spot for years. Favortism runs rampid - managers have their favorites and if you are not one of them your life will be hell. Worst manager I have EVER had - extremely fake and backstabbing. My job tasks have not ever compared to the amount I get paid.

Advice to Management

Start to care about all of your employees - not just the ones who are deemed your 'favorite'. Please start to pay people more, the pay is an insult. Please look into all personnel who hold management positions - some people do not deserve to be managers even though they have been here 15 years as they treat their employees like scum on the bottom of their shoe. PLEASE start to care more about your employees. So far 4 people out of a department of 6 have put in their notice in less than 1 month - if you don't start caring you will always loose valuable talent and in turn the company will suffer.

    I have been working at Neogen full-time

    Pros

    -The coworkers are, for the most part, all very genuine people. -It's an entry level opportunity to develop your skills so that you can move on at a later time.

    Cons

    -Compensation and benefits are poor. -Focus is on investor value, not employee development. -Very hard to move up, or around within the company. -Many individuals on sales team are inept. -Management does very little to motivate employees, no incentives for good performance. -Many labs are understaffed, but the company would rather do more with less than hire a few more people, thus helping their bottom line. -Nothing ever changes, implementation takes too long.

    Advice to Management

    You have some great people at your company, show them you actually care about them. Focus on employee development/more competitive compensation packages, and your bottom line will improve even more.

    Pros

    This is a good entry level place to get into quickly and punch out one year of GMP/ISO manufacturing if you're straight out of school.

    Cons

    Little room for job advancement, very little actual innovation going on as opposed to expanding the applications of existing technologies, and the salaries are absolutely dismal. Normally industry is supposed to be less interesting but higher paying than academia, but in this case quite a few Michigan State graduate students probably get a higher stipend than their industry counterparts. The scientific literacy of most employees is questionable at best.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about turnover. Despite the intimidating descriptions and lingo, the job tasks are easy enough for most community college students to do, so just accept that you can have a steady stream of people grabbing their entry level experience and stop acting mystified by the high turnover.
