RACINE, Wis., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SC Johnson has been recognized as a great place to work in Latin America for the eighth time. SC Johnson ranked number 10 among 25 Best Multinational Companies to Work For in Latin America that were honored at an event last night. The company moved up nine spots from last year.
