I worked at SC Johnson full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

flexible work schedule, promotion of work life balance, fitness centers, on-site yoga, great on site food, childcare center

Cons

very close knit, your family life and work life blur, Racine/ Milwaukee is not that great of a location to live. The pollution is not good for your health.

    I have been working at SC Johnson full-time (More than a 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 Management

    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

    I have been working at SC 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 Management

    Put people into positions to make decisions with clear data and hold them accountable to the intent of their decisions, no the outcome.
