I worked at Scotts Miracle-Gro

Pros

The Scotts Company has great leadership with excellenct follow up on job responsibilites, expectations, and overall performance. As a Sales Manager its an excellent opportunity to work directly with the end users, retail partners, and your team of merchandisers. You also get to work with the product in hand at a very "grass roots" level that is very valuable. Great growth and promotion opportunities!!

Cons

You do have an excellent benefits package but I feel the salary isnt where it should be especially in markets where the cost of living is much higher than the US average.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Love the Jim Hagedorn Speeches!! x#ll yea!!

    Pros

    Leader in industry. Collection of great talent.

    Cons

    Poor middle management communication. Lack of career planning focus. Opportunities for promotion limited for even the identified high potential individuals due to smaller staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More collaboration and communication. Stop being passive agressive and micro managing.

    Current Employee - Brand Manager in Marysville, OH

    I have been working at Scotts Miracle-Gro

    Pros

    Big fish / small pond opportunity; change / ideas can be implemented quickly; casual work environment;

    Cons

    Male dominated culture; lacks diversity; limited perceived value placed on quality of thinking / anlaysis / ideas; lack of development opportunities (and value by management on development)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving to a consumer focused, brand building culture is imperative. Not a product launching company, but a brand building company with the consumer at the center of every single decision.
