Pros

Good products, attend great trade shows.

Cons

Management is a joke. All that goes on in that company is everyone trying to blame everyone else for work that hasn't been done. Pay is horrible unless you are from Marion County.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to communicate better. There is no communication in that building. Also, check out your managers and try to figure out what they are actually doing.

    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 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and a great place to gain experience.

    Cons

    Compensation is insulting, the company cares more about shareholders than employees. The pay is not competitive in the industry, even when compared to other local companies. Bonuses and pay raises are also low, if you get them at all. The company has a very high turnover rate. Most of the talented employees leave because of wages, because there is little room for advancement and because employees are not held to equal standards. Many employees get away with showing up late or leaving early while others get pushed to be at work on time, work overtime and to meet strict deadlines. Very few products come out of R&D, the company profits from buying other companies and inheriting new product lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is going to continue to lose it's best employees unless you start paying people what they are actually worth. I met some good quality, hard workers at this company, it's sad to see that they all leave for the same reason.
