Senior Associate Entomologist (Current Employee) – Racine, WI – July 11, 2017
SCJ likes to tout being a family company, but what that really means is that the Johnson family is only beholden to itself. The culture appears relaxed but it's really more confused. Meeting rarely conclude with anything else than another meeting. It's a revolving door of employees.
The benefits are great
No clear job role, management that don't understand what projects they assign

I enjoyed working there although I was a temp I loved it. I tried to get hired in and politics took over which was one of the reasons I grew to dislike the hiring process they have. I would love to actually be hired in and show the best work I have but they hardly give anyone a chance.
Customer Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – May 23, 2017
Great place to learn from! It gives you best industry practices and you can work with highly experienced professionals that are very challenged and motivated. 1 year of experience there will be equal to 3 years of somewhere else.
upbeat managers providing work/life balance and dedication to product management
SAP PLM label specialist (Contractor) (Current Employee) – Sturtevant, WI – May 9, 2017
Daily tasks and emails and meeting project milestones, summarizes the weekly activities. Management was upbeat and dedicated to guiding team to best results. The culture was friendly and positive. Hardest part of the job, is learning new skills quick enough to hit the ground running for new projects, but learning is enjoyable.
Manager (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – February 9, 2017
Overall environment is wonderful at SC Johnson. Good people with a great work ethic. Word of warning: STAY AWAY from GCACS which includes Public Affairs, Communication, Community Affairs, Sustainability, and Government Relations. The management team is unstable and unfair. The turnover is extremely high. Your hard work and dedication will only be measured by how well management actually likes you.
Level 15 technician (Current Employee) – Bay City Michigan – November 17, 2016
Current employee/production technician with a lot of years at Bay City Site. This used to be a great place to work but not anymore. Used to be you had to practically kill somebody to get in trouble around here, let alone fired but now we've let more good people go than I can count in just the last year. The morale and culture are noting to write home about. Work with same people for long hours and never speak a word to each other. Its sad. People and management seem out to catch you making a mistake. There are perks, mostly the pay, but that's just a trap to stay in a soul sucking place.The new human resources regime rules the site with an iron fist so if you think they care about you, you'll be dissappointed. The swing shift is harder than you think and takes a lot outta you. Times have really changed in Bay City and I'm just happy to be retiring soon. I wouldn't recommend friends or family to work here.
Senior Technician (Former Employee) – Bay City, MI – November 10, 2016
Work there a long time. Try to give you my experience. If your going for a warehouse job pretty much I guess now a entry job to eventually be an line technician. They tried to save money by getting scj personal out of warehouse and contracting out the jobs to save money but it turned to be a huge failure. Highturnover and always having to train new people in warehouse was terrible. I'm not sure how they are working it out but i'm pretty sure you'll start at level 10 and won't really make money unless you move into production. Pay levels go from 10 to 16. Level 16 hard to get. Have to be an expert in alot of areas of plant. Each area of operation you learn increases your level hence pay scale. Unfortuanetly can't raise your level unless your in production. There way of still trying to save money but not having to pay you well unless they want to. Going to post more info if a get enough positive likes I have so much detailed info on what working in production is like. Finally can say how i feel without getting in trouble. Great paying job but had alot negatives and stress to go along with it. If you get assigned to production in building 1175 or the zoo as they call it you'll work twice as hard as every other building on site and they will never let you leave. Bonus eventually you'll get backstabbed.
Get payed well
Bad healthcare, Stress, bad management, shift work, smell like plastic at end of shift, poor air quality and not many fellow employees you can trust.
Technician II (Current Employee) – Bay City, MI – November 1, 2016
Bay City Site management is a JOKE! They have no backbone and treat their employees terribly. Management has no respect for the employees who work their tails off to keep the place afloat and get no support or recognition. The term "family company" only pertains to the owners who are completely out of the picture. The pay is good, but not enough to compensate for the stress that they put their employees through both mentally and physically.
