    I worked at Scotts Miracle-Gro full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started working here right out of college and I could have easily worked here for another 40 years, but life of course took me a different course. This is a company that truly cares about its employees, providing tons of benefits. I always felt like the Corporate group was part of the Hagedorn family.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone, especially if you are a smoking Liberal. Promotions only seem to occur for the MEN who have been there for five or more years.

    Pros

    While working for the company I found it to have a Reliable supply chain, good training in advance of sales, good company values. There are many things that would lead me to recommend employment with the company.

    Cons

    Compensation for the work was good, and independence was much appreciated. However, I wish i had made more money during the time working with them.

    Pros

    Scott did in house training for all employees, and did one on one training in the event to ensure that you have all understanding of what the job requires.

    Cons

    The jobs at Scotts are Seasonal, and every year you have to reapply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider keeping employees longer than 3-6 months once hired.

    Seasonal work with busy times around quarter and year ends. Pretty bad at getting new employees set up with what they need (laptop, phone, email, etc.) time wise. A lot of restructuring so the corporate structure is always changing.
