A place that really cares about work/life balance...if you live in Racine Wisconsin.

I have been working at S.C. Johnson full-time

Pros

Salary, lots of opportunity to move up or across. The business is big enough that you probably couldn't get bored.

Cons

In Racine Wisconsin. People stay for a long time so the culture is a bit stagnant. Actual office spaces are not inspiring. Some are not even pleasant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More flexibility on working remotely. Better health insurance plan.

    I have been working at S.C. Johnson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    SC Johnson has been a family owned company for 5 generations and the current CEO (great great grandson of the founder) is looking to remove the old nepotism habits and run the company the way a good company is run.

    Cons

    Lots of old habits - second-guessing manager's decisions, not relying on data to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people into positions to make decisions with clear data and hold them accountable to the intent of their decisions, no the outcome.

    Current Employee - Associate Brand Manager in Racine, WI

    I have been working at S.C. Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong brands
    High level of responsibility at entry level
    Private company enables sustained marketing strategy/support
    Laid back culture
    Low expectations

    Cons

    Weak talent caliber - does not compare to talent at P&G, General Mills, Kraft, etc. Lifers who have been at company forever impede change/growth.

    Lack of strategic thinking / very reactive culture - until things go wrong, no one interested in driving results in marketplace

    Location - Racine, WI

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house, remove the weak links and ensure the strong talent is recognized and incented to stay. Be more open to telecommuting/flex policies that enable Chicago talent to want to sustain working at the firm
