    Pros

    People in the company are willing to share information with others to help get the job done. Also, people seem to genuinely care about one another. Makes for a nice work environment.

    Cons

    Some teams are disconnected where everyone works on their own with little to no collaboration. Not an effective way to run a department. Felt very isolated in my role w/little communication w/management! Also HR, very slow to respond to job postings, even for internal candidates. Kind of left in the dark to wonder if there will be movement.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage those in management positions(i.e. directors) to take classes on promoting the upward mobility of their people. Require team building and teach your managers to develop their people, not just do their own jobs. Give them time to care for their people by allowing managers/directors time to build those in their teams!!! It would make for a more stable work environment and help people have more satisfying careers at Scotts.


  2. Temporary or "intern" workers at Scotts.

    Pros

    Great exposure and looks great on a resume

    Cons

    The work advertised was science oriented. The actual day to day was grunt work including physically demanding lifting and exposure outdoors. Temporary workers or "Interns" were treated as second class citizens by the Scotts company, awkwardly excluded from all full time Scotts employee benefits. Interns were expected to perform physically demanding, repetitive work with very little recognition. While the scientist and managers were professional, the environment was not conducive for long term employment.

    Thank you for your honest feedback. The Research and Development intern program has been restructured to designate the fieldwork duties you have described as summer employment. This has resulted in ... More
