    Pros

    Cintas attracts phenomonal talent. Working with such a talented and hard working group of people was very rewarding. The work is challenging as well and there is opportunity to learn and hone your skills in this fast-paced ever-changing environment.

    Cons

    Cintas does not value diversity and intellectual property in their company. They give lip-service to diversity but age, gender and race are all factors in how people are valued and placed. Cintas once had a wonderful culture of hard-working, honest people whose contributions and tenure were truly valued by the founder and his leadership team. That has since changed as much of the tenured talent has left Cintas, taking the knowledge and day-to-day engagement of the culture with them. Top leadership has a tendancy to value people most like themselves, only younger versions that will accept long hours and hard work for significantly less pay then the hard working tenured workers who know and understand the culture and inner workings of the company and it's customers. Cintas puts on a good "image", after all, they are in the "image" business. But scratch just below the surface and you find a company fraught with politics, beauracacy, good-ol-boy cliques, no true diversity of style, personality and background of employees in leadership ranks, and an unrelenting drive to their primary goal of satisfying the shareholders (which top leadership are some of the largest) at all costs, even at the expense of the front-line employee jobs, pay as well as customers (over priced service, unbending contracts, oversold services that are company-centric, not customer-centric. This is most obvious with the decision to move many of it's jobs offshore to 3rd world countries, forsaking the community in Cincinnati that worked tirelessly for decades supporting their homegrown company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at the beliefs of youir founder, Dick Farmer. Put your own agendas aside and try to go back to rebuilding the true culture of Cintas, which was once it's greatest asset. Start valuing your partners at all levels and place a value on those who can demonstrate and practice the culture to newer partners every day. Make a real sincere effort to retain your talent, it's leaving you. All you have to do is stop and take count, add up the years of Cintas tenurship that has left in the past year or two. Like shifting sands, the dune one day is greatly diminished right before your eyes. This is what is happening at Cintas, and someday will be a turning point for this great company that is missing the opportunty to be a truly great world class American Company.
