    Pros

    Still a family company for the employees that are valued

    Cons

    Cannot say that ALL employees are seen as valuable or treated according to core principles (TWB)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop - Replacing Executive Leadership with external hires who have no long-term interest in SCJ
    Start - Getting back to your core principles (TWB) and employees first
    Continue - To pursue innovation and alternative markets to drive profit margins

    No process. All informal and relationship based. Cultish and hypocritical. Fear is the only rule.

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

    Pros

    Don't have to do any leading edge or hard stuff. Just hang out and shop at the company store. Remember to say yes and be average and you'll be fine. I was duped into coming here. At least I've figured out how to get by.

    Cons

    Claim to be a nice place but its hypocritical. Best advise is keep your head down, do as you're told, don't take any initiative or you'll be knocked down. Mgmt is not transparent at all to employees. The all hands meetings are just full of corp fluff talk with positive spin. When it really matters employees are treated like children and told only enough to keep them quiet. Not a great brand name on your résumé. You won't get head hunted because you work here unfortunately. The longer you stay you lose your edge and forget how to excel in the outside world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really clue in to how damaging the culture is to company growth. Stop being so insular. Get rid of HR. they are nothing more than police goons and execution robots. Wake up to the fact the next generation may not want anything to do with you. Invest more in developing your people. Cut the handcuffs and let people make some decisions. Not everything needs to run all the way up the pole. Trust people more.
