    I have been working at Neogen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small company mindset in a large corportion, excellent people to work with, incredible diversity of people, responsibilities, abilities, and positions, and a corporate willingness for internal moves, very good benefits.

    Cons

    Small company mindset in a large corporation...this can often manifest as "mom and pop" procedures. Very poor infrastructure and supply chain management, an upper management focus on "ringing the cash register," often at the expense of procedure, safety, and ethics. Very low pay in most, but not all, positions; far below industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    A company that is supposed to be dedicated to "Food and Animal Safety" should probably be more concerned with its ethical reputation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Neogen in February 2017.

    Interview

    Got called directly by the hiring manager. They called me 15 minutes after the scheduled time and 5 minutes into the interview I was told that they were going to have to call me back in 5 minutes. They were dismissive, rude, and never called back. I now understand why they have so many negative reviews on here.
