    Great folks, low pay and little increases

    I worked at Neogen

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, fascinating work

    Cons

    High expectations, low reward unless in sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay based on market value of skills asked and possessed by employees, merit increases rather than tiny cost of living raises

    I have been working at Neogen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good chance to advance, awesome coworkers, pretty chill environment

    Cons

    SO low pay (especially for scientists, I mean, come on), upper management are kind of mean and way too traditional, could offer better benefits (though they're ok I guess), the whole R&D process is painfully tedious

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that research and development means RESEARCH and development. You can develop a molding piece of feces all you want, but unless allow the research that makes it a fertilizing commodity, it will continue to be a useless piece of crap.

    I worked at Neogen

    Pros

    Products sell themselves. Flexible. Employees are generally nice, good people. It is located in an old school building, which is cool (but also hot).

    Cons

    Low pay. Senior management seems to be stuck in traditional, conservative rut about employees and sales techniques. There is a lack of new products and ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more gender equality and technical support for new hires. Allow for more flexibility for working out of home.

    I have been working at Neogen

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Fairly secure place to work, no layoffs.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. If recognition or advancement were options it would help. Poor communication and cooperation between departments. Office cultures inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your good stand in the way of your better. Consider strategies that other companies have been successful with.

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

    Pros

    The employees are great people to work with. There is also a good potential for upward mobility and opportunities for different jobs within the company.

    Cons

    Tons of work and responsibility for little compensation. General lack of communication and organization. High rate of turnover means that few people have a very comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more so they will stick with the company and not leave as soon as they have experience.

    I have been working at Neogen

    Pros

    Neogen is a strong company with continued annual growth. This environment provides job stability and opportunities for sales and technical training.

    Cons

    Salaries are meager across the board. Imperative you negotiate up front as all future negotiations are based on your initial compensation benchmark. Salary does not grow at same rate of budget expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and implement Intel provided by your employees.
