    I have been working at Neogen

    Pros

    Neogen is one of the top 200 small corporations to work for according to Forbes, however I feel they are better than that even. Amazing stock, opportunity, and experience.

    Cons

    You won't be working in a fancy office, as the company purchases older schools and buildings. You start out at a lower wage, but if you put in the time and effort, Neogen looks after you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication between departments should improve.

    I worked at Neogen

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, fascinating work

    Cons

    High expectations, low reward unless in sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay based on market value of skills asked and possessed by employees, merit increases rather than tiny cost of living raises

    Pros

    Good chance to advance, awesome coworkers, pretty chill environment

    Cons

    SO low pay (especially for scientists, I mean, come on), upper management are kind of mean and way too traditional, could offer better benefits (though they're ok I guess), the whole R&D process is painfully tedious

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that research and development means RESEARCH and development. You can develop a molding piece of feces all you want, but unless allow the research that makes it a fertilizing commodity, it will continue to be a useless piece of crap.

    I worked at Neogen

    Pros

    Products sell themselves. Flexible. Employees are generally nice, good people. It is located in an old school building, which is cool (but also hot).

    Cons

    Low pay. Senior management seems to be stuck in traditional, conservative rut about employees and sales techniques. There is a lack of new products and ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more gender equality and technical support for new hires. Allow for more flexibility for working out of home.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Fairly secure place to work, no layoffs.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. If recognition or advancement were options it would help. Poor communication and cooperation between departments. Office cultures inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your good stand in the way of your better. Consider strategies that other companies have been successful with.
