I have been working at SC 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 Management

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 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.
