    I have been working at Ambius full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been here 9 years and I am so glad that I walked in the door. This is a great company to work for with a lot of Caring people to work with. We are like one huge family spread across the globe. During disasters this company is 100% there for each and every one of us . How many people that work for other corporations can say that.

    Cons

    This company is better then others I have worked for

    Advice to Management

    Never let Al Martin leave our branch! :)

    I have been working at Ambius full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ambius is the only national interior landscape company, which is a huge advantage for national accounts. Ambius also has lines of business including, holiday decor and premium scenting (ambient or brand scenting). Ambius cares about it's employees with growth and development opportunities.

    Cons

    With any large companies you can lose the close knit family feel of smaller companies. Lots of processes and changes are constant as companies are acquired.

    Good people. Fun environment. Great product.

    Long hours. Top heavy with too much management! They can be out of touch with the creative aspects involved in the role.

    Advice to Management

    Hire "Ambius people" to manage "Ambius people," not pest control people!

    I have been working at Ambius full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Easy work and real sense of accomplishment when you are done. Have a decent group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Long hours during holidays and management thinks that there is nothing else in your life but this job. They tell you to take ownership of your route but then second guess you and change routes as they please. Can't retain any good employees. Politics are a big role in this job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and stop playing games. Get back to quality work and not bonuses. Stop cutting corners so the bottom line is met. And stop implementing new regulations like I drive safely sign to go across seat belt and tape across the back doors for safety. And use that for supplies that are not getting ordered as often.

    Pros

    If you're making your numbers life can be good. But you have to put in a lot of hours to get it all done. I love the creative aspect of this job and run it like it's my own business. Management is getting better but they still play some favorites.

    Cons

    Must work smart or you'll be working 80 hour weeks. Holiday time is ridiculous. Asked to do work outside of your regular capabilities because they don't hire enough qualified people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises, learn both sides of the business, pest and plants and make sure rules of engagement are followed.

    I have been working at Ambius full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with plants, some nice people to work with, pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Management seems disorganized, ever changing with no real improvements that fall down to workers. Promises made and not kept. Job description at interview ended up not realistic. Open positions not filled for lengthy times requires others to pick up the slack and be overworked. Some decisions seems penny wise and pound foolish. Don't feel supported by administrative staff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to suggestions by those working in the field and in the warehouse and help accordingly. Departments that interact with each other need to connect, communicate and help resolve issues together rather than just complaining.
