    Adapting to change

    Human Resources Director (Current Employee)
    Marysville, OH

    ProsI came into a high functioning team and was given the opportunity by my VP to make changes, develop my people, add systems and to address gaps and deficiencies. I find the opportunity to fix or define process improvements abounds. Scotts is determined to improve so while roadblocks/old attitudes do exist there is a desire to move forward , recognize shortcomings and address them.

    ConsStrategic Workforce Planning is not in place at Scotts yet and it shows, managing to a budget is not a strength and helps to generate "Growth" which is a euphemism for we cut costs here to fuel expansion there. Senior management is mercurial.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManage costs and budget, hold leaders accountable to manage their costs and budget and to achieve business goals. Not everything can be blamed on the seasonal weather.

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