Demand Planner (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 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.
Competitive salary and benefits
Long work days and long work weeks, reduced work force leaves more work for few people, communication (timing and accuracy) is poor
Product Development (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – May 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,
Good pay and benefots
Culture change, frequent reorganizations, and layoffs
Virtual Contract Recruiter (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – February 24, 2018
Company is well established, family owned, truly committed to it's employees. Beautiful campus, offices in which to work. Recognizable brand names. SCJ is committed to creating environmental friendly products.
IT PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – December 23, 2017
S.C. Johnson is a fabulous place to work, especially with it being a family-owned business. The history behind the building makes it an interesting campus to tour in addition to keeping it a place that is never boring with all of the cool development that goes on in their product development department (confidential).
Production Manager (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – November 14, 2017
Great company to work for where management gets more for less. The culture was slowly changing and hard to say in what direction before I left. Its a great place to start if your are looking for manufacturing and lean experience.
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
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – June 6, 2017
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.
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.
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.
