    Former Employee - Research Technician in Lansing, MI (US)
    Former Employee - Research Technician in Lansing, MI (US)

    I worked at Neogen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people. Enjoyed my day. Team work ethic. Not micromanaged. Learned a lot about microbiology.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the level of education and experience most employees have.
    CEO continually has meetings about how well the company is doing, growing, investing and acquiring new companies, but the company does not reward its employees for this or increase wages as they should.
    Poor health care benefits with consistent increased cost to employees.
    Not much incentive to work there long term because they do not compete with the pay and benefits of other companies. Great minds leave all the time and most of the people that work there are always looking for other job opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more. Reward employees. Happiness on the job makes people stay and company would advance more if all the great minds stayed.

    Pros

    People are a pro, they make the job bearable. A good place to glean experience before moving into something meaningful.

    Cons

    -Pay is dismal
    -Minimal Recognition
    -No Advancement Opportunity
    -Placation of concerns by Management
    -No reward for Experience
    -No reward for Education
    -No reward for Hard work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people. When 5 year gross pay equals 12x less than Jim Herbert's 2012 bonus pay, this is unacceptable. Build a culture where individuals wish to build a career, not where people cannot wait to leave. Reward initiative. Reward innovation. When your highly trained and experienced technical staff makes 15-35x less than upper management, 2-3x less than sales and marketing, there is something horribly wrong with the company. Get rid of the inept buffoons that saturate the company and divvy up their salaries among those who actually work.
