Not a Family Company - Don't be deceived
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 29, 2019
Management is run like a dictatorship. It not interested in employees thoughts, only constant change in goals and processes weekly, driven top down. No work life balance. Vacation time is spent working to keep up with deliverables. Promotions are cherry picked for under-performers to stop the bleed of talent leaving the company as they know under-performers will not leave and continue to be overworked.

Constant push to move jobs to Chicago from Racine to source managements former co-workers is on-going creating a lot of disruption. Multiple locations and job functions spread across 4 different locations in Racine and Chicago creates inefficiencies. A lot of $ being spent on new buildings and renovations without a systemic outline of which roles will fill those new locations.
Pros
Benefits, Holiday Shutdown, Pension
Cons
Management, Work Life Balance, Promotions

Positive Input
Associate Manager (Former Employee) –  Racine, WIApril 15, 2019
New employees with experience are viewed as threat to management, treat new employees badly, too much politics in quality management preventing good employees from executing full potential. Management is using forced distribution to punish good employees from being promoted. promotion is only possible if you submit to your manager. SC Johnson family are great people but unaware of the bad practices by management which is hurting this great company. Management steal good workers accomplishments and ideas and take credits. I would have stayed longer but I could not take it anymore.
Pros
Great family
Cons
Management is very political and prevent employees from adv

Shuttle Coordinator/Express Pros (Former Employee) –  Racine, WIFebruary 11, 2019
Sc Johnson was a good place to work and I loved performing the job duties that was required of me.
I learned how to work with a transportation software application call Livery Coach that I struggled very hard with in the beginning to learn. Once I did learn how to do it and when it all came to make sense and able to putall of the pieces to together I really enjoyed having to go to work everyday.

New Management has no regard for culture
Demand Planner (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 16, 2018
A rapid influx over the past year of managers, directors, and vice presidents from a single publicly held company has attempted to alter far too many tasks and processes. It is a textbook example of the ends attempting to justify the means...regardless of the moral or ethical position of those means.
Pros
Competitive salary and benefits
Cons
Long work days and long work weeks, reduced work force leaves more work for few people, communication (timing and accuracy) is poor

Great work/life balance
Manager (Former Employee) –  Racine, WINovember 16, 2018
Great work/life balance. Nice people. Slower pace of work so may not feel challenged at work. Headquarters location is non-ideal if you prefer a big city.

I cannot say anything positive or encouraging about my work experience. Aside from the two recent RIFs (reduction in force), we have a mass exodus underway. Managers are not bonus eligible.

Discounted Windex

Micro-managing, generally dysfunctional

Working for Sc Johnson was a good work experience and added experience in the warehouse. The hardest thing about working there was the swing shift and having to go from days to nights and working 12 or more hours

SCJ changed during my tenure
Product Development (Former Employee) –  Racine, WIMay 1, 2018
When I joined SCJ, the company was interested in the hiring a unique set of people who solve problems and develop products. Over time this focus changed to people who would work over (50) hr weeks and do as they were told.

Until 2015, approximately, there was no defined method of achieving promotion or opportunities for advancement. Moving forward required being on good terms with your boss, good or bad, and having them pull you up through the ranks,
Pros
Good pay and benefots
Cons
Culture change, frequent reorganizations, and layoffs
