    A whirlwind of lies and disappointment.

    Account Executive (Former Employee)

    ProsI liked being on the road in my territory.

    ConsLow salary. Inability for the company to be competitive in a business where there is a ton of competition. Poor management on all levels. Micro-management to the point where it was detrimental, even when you are making quota month after month. Medical benefits were the worst ever experienced. So much more................

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsult employees before making changes that affect major points of selling.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company with a fantastic reputation

    Residential Sales (Former Employee) Richmond, VA

    ProsTop notch training, excellent quality of people and very supportive.

    ConsWhile the service is the best in the industry, the prices are higher than the competition. It is hard to overcome if people are shopping based on price.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry and figure out some ways to cut down the price to customers.

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

    horrible company since rollins took over

    Technician (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Prosgood pay and good clients.good training.

    Consmanagers are not team players or people persons. its not about service since rollins orkin took over. they might as well change the name to orkin like the rest. the nyc branch was great before rollins started using orkin infrastructure,which clearly isnt working and has damaged westerns reputation among customers.the new regional manager is from service master need i say more.they dont want you working overtime but you have to finish all your stops. they write you up for every little thing, like working overtime.if an account cancels they write you up even if it wasnt your fault.every month someone gets fired. better off working for a mom and pop company stay away

    Advice to Senior Managementrespect your technicians they do all the work. the office manager is a bigot and unqualified to manage. you should know theres a problem when a supervisor with 12 years with the company quits because of the management. dont micromanage it doesnt work in this buisness.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Challenging place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA good over all company to work for with a good moral background. This company is now owned buy a larger corporation (Rollins).

    ConsThe previous branch management I work under lacked follow-through. As with most companies the key to success is good Management. The company’s new Corporations main priority is not on service but growth at all cost.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGOOD Management is the key to any company’s success. Unfortunately most upper management has no idea what characteristics make up a good manager.
