    I worked at Spotless part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management was happy to train me and provide feedback during the early period of my employment.

    Management was flexible when I required time off.

    I was able to operate with a high level of independence.

    Over all I was happy with my time at Spotless. I went in, I did my job, I went home, there was a minimum of problems, what more can we ask for?

    Cons

    The company has a tendency to be very reluctant to release employees. There for often working for Spotless hard working employee's would have to work harder to make up for the short fall of lower performing coworkers spite contacting management.

    Management visited our site far less than they were required to.

    Also, when our company that hire Spotless to clean our site decided to change cleaning companies, I was never offered employment at any other sites.

    I worked at Spotless full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are friendly and trying to do a good job.

    Cons

    Bullying is an accepted way of getting things done. Managers who do their own thing without thought for the consequences leaving others in the team to mop up the mess. Very little communication/cooperation between business units. No personal development/training/career opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that you have good people who want to do a good job and treat them respectfully.

    Former Employee - Operations Manager/Area Manager in Perth, Western Australia (Australia)

    I worked at Spotless full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Varied work Load, priorities change by the hour, very busy schedule, great salary and residential property supplied is very good standard. Trade Employees on F.I.F.O. roster are vet well looked after and paid well.

    Cons

    I believe that since our take over last year the company HR department have way to much control over the day to day running of the business and is taking them in the wrong direction which will lead to them loosing future contracts. They do not walk the walk and talk the talk but pretend to do so

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management at GGM level need to be aware of what direction they are being taken with a certain group of people as I believe that they are being misled and being told untruths

    I have been working at Spotless full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable camaraderie among employees - unfortunately mainly based on dysfunction within the organisation and among management

    Cons

    Irresponsible managers, parochial management perspectives prevail, very political environment, ruthless management culture with no loyalty to staff. Low performance culture where effort does not equate to reward and innovation is stifled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Is unlikely to be taken on board and is likely to result in the adviser finding themselves on the outer promptly.

    I have been working at Spotless full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    No boss... Frankly, getting told by someone else what you should or should not do is unbearable.
    For me at least.
    The reduced levels of stress that you get by not having someone barking at you once in a while is gold. Sure, there must be companies out there with nice corporate cultures where people are friendly, smart and caring. Truth be told my old boss was a really cool guy.
    Still, there is nothing like doing what you want, when you want, because you want it.

    Cons

    Many distractions like If you live alone this should not be a problem. If you live with your parents, friends or wife and kids, however, be prepared to get interrupted more often than not. Other people have a hard time to conceptualize that you are actually working when you are at home on your computer. As a result, they will knock on your door or call you even for the smallest of the issues.
    Creating an ad-hoc room in your house that will serve as office can help, but it will hardly eliminate the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Report to the Board on key OH&S and environmental issues and areas
    of focus within the Group.
