Former Employee - Account Manager in Portland, OR

I worked at ServiceMaster full-time (more than an year)

Pros

While Pete Vranizan was leading the company had unity and direction. There was plenty to work on, but at least we had capable people that cared. There was a family environment and a sense of teamwork.

Cons

The con was the ownership, the team never did gel or make a lot of traction because ownership constantly was overriding management and the leadership in place. It was disjointed and frustrating. When Pete was finally fired, the company really became a miserable place to work. With a new focus on numbers, and new disposable employees, any sense of care and ownership went out the window.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees ARE your business, treat them well and they will perform for you. They are your best asset, not a disposable one that can be turned in for a cheaper newer model. You can store all the knowledge you want in your systems (As well you should) but with out the experiance and right attitude to apply it, it is useless. And your customers really do care about a stable team. As you can well see as you lose clientele.
