    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.

    Former Intern - Graphic Designer Intern in East Lansing, MI

    I worked at Neogen as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work I did and the people I worked with. Everyone was very friendly and the work load was reasonable.

    Cons

    I didn't have a lot of creative freedom or creative direction. I think I could have benefited more from having more direction.

    Advice to Management

    The reason for internships is to provide an educational environment and serve as a mentor and I believe that there could have been more teaching and assisting in understanding design rather that just getting the work done.
