    Pros

    There's a spirit in G&K Services that is beyond special. It's contagious. It makes you feel like a lucky person to find a company like this to thrive in and build a career. Big enough that there are abundant opportunities, but not overly massive that you don't matter and can't make a different. Dream place to work -- truly.

    Cons

    Industry gets a bad rap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Need more companies like G&K where people matter.

    It would make everything a lot easier if the folder process wasn't so time consuming and always put under a microscope.
