    I have been working at Neogen full-time

    Pros

    Great people, great health benefits and decent number of vacation days. The work is never difficult but sometimes complex.

    The pay. Way below average, and they really push for a lot of overtime. This sucks if you're salary.

    Advice to Management

    More pay. Make it worth the trouble.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    interesting work-supervisors and senior scientists are genuinely helpful to teach the younger scientists "the ropes" of applied science and product development

    Cons

    low salary - many of the younger scientists leave because salary is not sufficient to cover school debt and other standard debt obligations.

    Advice to Management

    increase salary.. or us younger scientists are going to continue to use Neogen only as a resume builder and not stay to establish a career
