    Work with a great group of people, very supportive and everyone works together as a team. Good pay and good benefits.

    I have been working at Neogen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's good experience for food safety fields. There is possibility to advance quickly to Territory manager when hired as inside sales.

    Cons

    Pay is highly variable and unfair amongst coworkers of the same position. 'Old school' way of doing things. Expanding fast but trying to keep up I guess

    Pros

    The Benefits, 401k, stock, pto (although they could dish more), company events like picnics, family events and promotional events like the sparrow health days and Red Cross blood donations

    Cons

    Management is terrible and you get treated like you don't know anything, they don't train anyone properly, the pay sucks, not enough promotion or pay upgrades available...it's like a family plan they only push the people they like into promotions and they have wayyyy to much overtime and not enough time with family

    Advice to Management

    Take a management class and treat everyone how you deserve to be treated
