Former Employee - Research Technician in Lansing, MI
Former Employee - Research Technician in Lansing, MI

I worked at Neogen full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great people. Enjoyed my day. Team work ethic. Not micromanaged. Learned a lot about microbiology.

Cons

Poor pay for the level of education and experience most employees have.
CEO continually has meetings about how well the company is doing, growing, investing and acquiring new companies, but the company does not reward its employees for this or increase wages as they should.
Poor health care benefits with consistent increased cost to employees.
Not much incentive to work there long term because they do not compete with the pay and benefits of other companies. Great minds leave all the time and most of the people that work there are always looking for other job opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more. Reward employees. Happiness on the job makes people stay and company would advance more if all the great minds stayed.

    Pros

    People are a pro, they make the job bearable. A good place to glean experience before moving into something meaningful.

    Cons

    -Pay is dismal
    -Minimal Recognition
    -No Advancement Opportunity
    -Placation of concerns by Management
    -No reward for Experience
    -No reward for Education
    -No reward for Hard work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people. When 5 year gross pay equals 12x less than Jim Herbert's 2012 bonus pay, this is unacceptable. Build a culture where individuals wish to build a career, not where people cannot wait to leave. Reward initiative. Reward innovation. When your highly trained and experienced technical staff makes 15-35x less than upper management, 2-3x less than sales and marketing, there is something horribly wrong with the company. Get rid of the inept buffoons that saturate the company and divvy up their salaries among those who actually work.

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

    I have been working at Neogen full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
