Just ok

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Neogen

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

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

But what do I know anyways?

Chemist (Current Employee)

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

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent company for entry level sales and starting your career.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Neogen

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

ConsSalaries 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 Senior ManagementListen to and implement Intel provided by your employees.
