I worked at Rentokil Initial

Pros

The previous general manager was forward looking and open to new ideas.
The company car was a major benefit since all maintenenace, insurance, road tax and fuel bills were paid for by the company. Of course, I got to use it for personal errands and it brought a world of convenience to me, Never had to squeeze in public transport again. Could drive to meet friends for lunch on the opposite side of the island without worrying about fuel cost. The car's probably the main reason why I accepted a lower monthly salary.

Cons

Mainly reason: No career progression.
Constant management changes.
Incompetent management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand the situation on the ground. Managing a company purely through accounts alone and issuing directives from your ivory towers will never get you anywhere with customers.

    This company was good at a time but recent leadership changes ruined the culture.
