I worked at Vanguard Cleaning Systems full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Pay was fair
Fantastic access to executives
Invest a lot into teaching employees
Ethical company
Stable work
Good work environment

Cons

This was the only con for me, and it's was a pretty personal one:
The company tends to be just a bit on the older side. It's difficult to have friendships with people 15-20 years your senior who have families and kids to go home to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It was a pleasure working with everyone. I wish them all the best.

    Pros

    My boss was well educated in law, sales, and business processes and instilled that knowledge to his employees.

    I was fairly compensated for my performance.

    Each year the company gets better as a national unit.

    In the facility maintenance industry, Vanguard is heads and shoulders above the rest in management and progession

    Cons

    Each office is different, and some offices are not operated as well, some even poorly

    Not a "sexy" industry

    Customers can often look down on you as "just the cleaning company"

    Benefits are just OK, not great (once again depends on the office)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At my office, none. Some offices with husband and wife owners that are running the show need to let differences between them stop when they hit the door, and not make employees select sides. In addition, more offices should unified in training and development of franchisees, sales, operations, and office management.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, A work environment that allows you to grow and to be a part of an enthusiastic team. Tools to build on your strengths and improve your weaknesses with support from upper management. Executives are always open to new ideas and asking for ways to improve and stay a step ahead of the competitors

    Cons

    Finding a "common ground" to stand on that both the VCS Customer and VCS Business Owner can agree on can sometimes prove as a challenge...
