I have been working at Neogen full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The employees are great people to work with. There is also a good potential for upward mobility and opportunities for different jobs within the company.

Cons

Tons of work and responsibility for little compensation. General lack of communication and organization. High rate of turnover means that few people have a very comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of their jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay people more so they will stick with the company and not leave as soon as they have experience.

    I worked at Neogen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Gain experience. They reuse old buildings. It's a paycheck...

    Cons

    HORRIBLE PAY
    Management is a joke.
    Managers micro manage, while treating employees like garbage. They let go of hard working individuals because management does not like them. Supervisors are overworked and under payed the same goes with lower employees. Raises are an insult. Benefits are way too expensive for what you get. They have meetings to tell the employees how much money they make but the employees are stuck making $8-11 an hour. There are employees who have been there for 10+ years and still don't see $10 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of the majority of the manufacturing managers and start over. They are worthless.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
