    Pros

    Neogen is one of the top 200 small corporations to work for according to Forbes, however I feel they are better than that even. Amazing stock, opportunity, and experience.

    Cons

    You won't be working in a fancy office, as the company purchases older schools and buildings. You start out at a lower wage, but if you put in the time and effort, Neogen looks after you.

    Advice to Management

    Communication between departments should improve.

    It's such a laid back company. This has been my all time favorite job. Good benefits. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    The salary needs to be higher. Neogen likes to keep putting more responsibities on your plate without giving you a raise.

    Treat everyone equal.

    Pros

    Great People and a good work environment. Neogen was full of friendly and smart people. I need more words to fill the limit.

    Cons

    Safety was an issue. Lansing is also not a very fun town. The facilities are quite old and need fixing up. Pink Floyd is one of my top 5 favorite bands

    I have been working at Neogen full-time

    Pros

    Friendly management, fun environment, and just a lot of feel good vibes from a company that's doing "good" work. Solid training and a visible promote-from-within policy. Reasonably-priced health coverage, good 401k and stock purchase plan, and generous time off allowances.

    Cons

    Staffing often feels inadequate. The low wage makes it impossible to really utilize the benefits. Seriously, I have to explain to people all of the other positives of working here so they don't think I'm insane when I tell them I'm making $2/hour less than market. Few coworkers I know can afford to contribute to their own 401k and none can afford to take advantage of the stock purchase plan (which is a tremendous perk if you have the money to spend).

    Advice to Management

    Every year we're told we're awesome, that we've had huge income growth, and that our products are just selling themselves. So can you maybe look at increasing the wage scale? Sales people get great commissions and perks. It would be nice if the remaining rank and file did as well.

    Your employees shouldn't feel like they're settling.
