    A big traditional white and blue collar company

    Implementation Specialist (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs move away from fear based motivation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employee Satisfaction isn't a priority

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsThe 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An Employees Review

    Home Inspector/Sales (Current Employee)

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

    ConsMostly 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 Senior ManagementDo a lot more to generate non-pest service leads.

    anonymous

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

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

    ConsManagement 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 Outdated technology that matches both buildings.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 Senior ManagementAll 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people, decent benefits, competitive pay

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow existing employees to provide input, try new technologies

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employee stability is not their first priority.

    Warranty Consultant (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThey 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.

    ConsIs 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 Senior ManagementPay 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,

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Current management is destroying the IT department........is it intentional? Run for your life!!

    Senior Telecommunications Engineer (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsLocated in Buckhead
    Decent restaurants in the vicinity (if you like Zesto's or Moe's)

    Cons* 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 Senior ManagementDrink cyanide....

    Out of Date Policies Drive Good Employees Away

    Management (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsPROS: 1. It's almost impossible to get fired (also a con because lazy people like that!) 2. Stable and loyal to their employees (sometimes to a fault) 3. Most employees here are nice 4. You can create your own job if you are smart about how your efforts can contribute to the bottom line

    ConsCONS: Ever want to fill like you are in 1962? Join this company and you're there. They need to update their policies, their environment, their dress code and their leadership team. Zero tolerance about working from home.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be loyal to non producers. Update your policies to reward individuals who contribute. Gain some flexibility with work hours, work from home policy, dress code, overall culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
