Current Employee - Associate Brand Manager in Racine, WI
Current Employee - Associate Brand Manager in Racine, WI

I have been working at S.C. Johnson full-time (more than an 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
