Former Employee - Chemist  in  Lansing, MI
Former Employee - Chemist in Lansing, MI

I worked at Neogen full-time

Pros

It's a steady paycheck and they have a company picnic once per year. It's in a park and you are encouraged to bring your own food. In addition to the picnic, many of the employees are great people.

Cons

- Pay is embarrassingly low
- New ideas are not considered
- Extremely high turnover rate
- Low company Moral
- Facilities are not fit for manufacturing
- Company does not compensate for a reasonable standard of living
- Raises are nonexistent
- Upper management does not recognize lower employees
- Forced to work long hours when a large sale is made and not compensated for your extra efforts
- Former manager worked Saturdays for 3 months in order to maintain manufacturing demands. Neogen rewarded my former manager with a $50 gift-card for 96 hours of weekend-work.

    Pros

    Conscious management, bringing on new blood from outside the company. Starting to embrace. sociall media outlets, standardizing corporate image across the divisions.Encourages team atmosphere,provided opportunities to mingle with fellow employees outside work. US company keeping jobs in US.

    Cons

    Slow to implement new technologies, short-staffed in support functions, seems to more reactive than proactive. Needs program to reward personnel working in positions not performance based
