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.

    Pros

    -The coworkers are, for the most part, all very genuine people.
    -It's an entry level opportunity to develop your skills so that you can move on at a later time.

    Cons

    -Compensation and benefits are poor.
    -Focus is on investor value, not employee development.
    -Very hard to move up, or around within the company.
    -Many individuals on sales team are inept.
    -Management does very little to motivate employees, no incentives for good performance.
    -Many labs are understaffed, but the company would rather do more with less than hire a few more people, thus helping their bottom line.
    -Nothing ever changes, implementation takes too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some great people at your company, show them you actually care about them. Focus on employee development/more competitive compensation packages, and your bottom line will improve even more.

    Pros

    This is a good entry level place to get into quickly and punch out one year of GMP/ISO manufacturing if you're straight out of school.

    Cons

    Little room for job advancement, very little actual innovation going on as opposed to expanding the applications of existing technologies, and the salaries are absolutely dismal. Normally industry is supposed to be less interesting but higher paying than academia, but in this case quite a few Michigan State graduate students probably get a higher stipend than their industry counterparts. The scientific literacy of most employees is questionable at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about turnover. Despite the intimidating descriptions and lingo, the job tasks are easy enough for most community college students to do, so just accept that you can have a steady stream of people grabbing their entry level experience and stop acting mystified by the high turnover.
