    I have been working at Rollins full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary, Smart people, Motivated, Not a complicated industry, Old world charm, Surprising ahead of the curve in some aspects, Very long average employee tenure

    Cons

    Not-so-great benefits, Uptight dress code, VERY slow on long pending tech upgrades, No work from home

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create leadership track for younger employees who hold promise, not just for the 20+ year veterans

    I worked at Rollins full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No pros that I could find; knew after 1 week that it was not the place for me.

    Cons

    To have a department where cameras are in use very disheartening; the building I was in (RAC) was not handicapped accessible (how is that possible in 2014?). Got one positive comment in 10 weeks with the company, and I have over 30 years experience in my area of expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some training in positive communication skills and how to train employees!!!!

    I have been working at Rollins full-time

    Pros

    getting a paycheck is about it.

    Cons

    Men must wear a tie and no facial hair- stuck in the 50's. Obsolete.
    Do you want Pest Control on Black Friday- or Are you thinking about that during the Thanksgiving Holiday? Rollins you must work black friday. Same with the day after Christmas if it falls on a weekday. Really Gary Rollins?

     * Ignorant upper and middle IT management
          Obvious lack of higher education and managerial experience among upper IT management. Bullies and predators

     * Obviously planning to outsource IT constantly driving good people away

      * Obsolete systems -

      * Nepotism and favoritism are the rule within IT. Which leads to a very scared and dissatisfied workplace. Not judged by your skills, only thing that matters is to be liked by the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RETIRE!

    I have been working at Rollins full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Take home truck, some benefits, not much else.

    Cons

    I work with managers that are incompetent, only looking out for their bonuses. Will write you up for minor infractions to show how "capable" they are. Cannot even contact mgrs. when needed for asst, only get voicemail. Threats to keep job by quantity not quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cannot keep hiring new people without experience to cut costs. A lot of veteran techs will take happy customers with then to new company.

    Pros

    Financially Stable as a company. There's a branch or location in almost every state in the US and Canada.

    Cons

    The culture is very conservative which leads to a lack of creativity which is attractive to young employees. Leadership isn't up to par, revolving door and there is no team work among employees. The motivation to come in and give it your all isn't there when you constantly feel restricted and oppressed.

    Pros

    There are opportunities within the organization to try new areas of interest and to excel if you find the right fit.

    Cons

    Leadership is not transparent and there is a top down mentality with very little room for new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs move away from fear based motivation.

    I have been working at Rollins full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you have a good manager, the work experience is enjoyable.
    To their credit, the company really does try to make it a good experience.

    Cons

    Mostly cold calling, and then you are visiting a potential a customer under disingenuous reasons, i.e. "Free home inspection" then your house needs an expensive "this or that" or it might fall to the ground...overnight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a lot more to generate non-pest service leads.

    Pros

    There are some really nice people there; helpful, knowledgeable, and genuine

    Cons

    Management has no backbone, will not stand up for what's right. Benefits are horrible. No promotional opportunities. Outdated technology that matches both buildings. If you want to work for an all white male conservative company, that shows no real concern for their employee workgroup, then this is the perfect place for you. If you're young, do not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of the executive managers/vp should retire....period. It will never get better as long as they're around. This includes all directors and manager who have been there for five or more years.

    Pros

    Great people, decent benefits, competitive pay

    Cons

    Slow on technology refresh. Management needs to value inputs from current experts when evaluating projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow existing employees to provide input, try new technologies

    Pros

    They comply with all regulations and have a good financial backing. Is a reputable organization. They put a good effort to maintain a clean environment to work.

    Cons

    Is one of those revolving door company in regards to employees. Consideration is difficult to be found when you try to explain motives behind actions. Needs to improve team working relations among their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your key employees; specially those whom have made an effort to make the organization better. When there is a conflict investigate all angles before determine an opinion,
