    Pros

    It was a good job. I didn't have many problems with the work.

    Cons

    You start as a temp and stay there for awhile then when you finally get seasonal expect to be there for a few years unless you know some one that works there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people in directly faster and quit favoring your butt buddies.

    Pros

    Excellent company that has treated me very well over the years. You need to be an independent and entrepenurial type to succeed. This is a lifestyle job, not a 9 to 5 punch in and punch out situation.

    Cons

    None really, management responds quickly to market changes so there can be a lot of CHANGE, some may view this a a "con" but it is the reality of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Get out in the field as much as possible as your time allows, and always foster an environment of integrity.

    Throughout my 7 years with Scotts the job continually got more and more difficult. Very little room to get promoted unless you want to move to Ohio.

    Don't micromanage

    Pros

    SMG employees are very passionate about the products and their jobs. The company has been around almost 150 years but continues to create new products and find new ways for consumers to enjoy their environment.

    Cons

    There is still an old-boys network feeling to the company in terms of women in executive positions.

    Advice to Management

    It would be motivating to see more internal promotions.
