    Pros

    World Class Organization that continues to evolve to the needs of their retail partners. Never have to worry about layoffs due to their strength in the market.

    Cons

    Long hours during lawn and garden season. Plant Manager promotions usually based on "who you know" vs. "what you know"

    Advice to Management

    Look outside Marysville for talent, there are alot of associates out there who are deidicated and knowledgeable.

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Strategic 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 Management

    Manage 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.
