    Adapting to change

    Human Resources Director (Current Employee)
    Marysville, OH

    ProsI came into a high functioning team and was given the opportunity by my VP to make changes, develop my people, add systems and to address gaps and deficiencies. I find the opportunity to fix or define process improvements abounds. Scotts is determined to improve so while roadblocks/old attitudes do exist there is a desire to move forward , recognize shortcomings and address them.

    ConsStrategic Workforce Planning is not in place at Scotts yet and it shows, managing to a budget is not a strength and helps to generate "Growth" which is a euphemism for we cut costs here to fuel expansion there. Senior management is mercurial.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManage costs and budget, hold leaders accountable to manage their costs and budget and to achieve business goals. Not everything can be blamed on the seasonal weather.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Team Enviroment

    Sales Manager (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe whole team has to win in order for anyone to bonus.

    ConsThe wall street expectations for a seasonal business. The executive press hard down the chain

    Advice to Senior ManagementRelax on the micro management, and give the employee a break to be with family during the 150 days of hell.

    Solid experience, learned a lot

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGiven a lot of responsibility as an intern. Because of this I did grow a lot in my job role. Beautiful environment to work at. Good pay.

    ConsSometimes in over my head with work. Found myself stressed at times and was not given the opportunity to work with a team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation was solid and so was the work environment, however I was confined to a cubicle and given projects that I was expected to complete myself with not too much collaboration between other employees.

    Great company that is impacting the world.

    Merchandiser (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsGreat products and a large variety of solutions for our customers' needs.

    ConsHIgher priced than competitors due to cost of chemicals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be nice if seasonal reps could stay working longer, with an increase in budgets. Also, we haven't had marketing supplies in quite some time.

    Constantly changing

    Sales Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsRespected company, opportunities for those that can move. Some really great people that work there.

    ConsHigh stress, upper management not in tune with the challenges faced in the field.
