    Pros

    Excellent company that has treated me very well over the years.
    You need to be an independent and entrepenurial type to succeed.

    This is a lifestyle job, not a 9 to 5 punch in and punch out situation.

    Cons

    None really, management responds quickly to market changes so there can be a lot of CHANGE, some may view this a a "con" but it is the reality of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Get out in the field as much as possible as your time allows, and always foster an environment of integrity.

    Pros

    Great benifits, great experience. Awesome development opportunities for those who are motivated.

    Cons

    Management is not in touch with the Field Sales Team. Some district managers are lazy and do nothing to help thier team.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the lazy dead weight middle managers and focus on what made the Scotts Co great, awesome products that work as advertised.

    Throughout my 7 years with Scotts the job continually got more and more difficult. Very little room to get promoted unless you want to move to Ohio.

    Don't micromanage
