I have been working at S.C. Johnson full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Childcare center and summer camp is top notch

Cons

Lower and mid IT Management is cult-like and needs some fresh leadership and direction.
There is an inconsistent and empty approach to personal development and growth opportunity within the organization for talented individuals.
Lack of recognition for innovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire qualified entry level managers, repurpose the unqualified, and weed out the deadwood in sr. Management. If change is to occur, we need to start with leadership.
Embrace enhanced telecommuting program that encourages employees with long commutes to work remotely more often. SCJ claims to be green but their carbon footprint for employees commuting to and from home to work sites is still large.

    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 (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.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
