    I have been working at Scotts Miracle-Gro full-time

    Pros

    Great medical benefits - large gym, free fully staffed doctor's office and pharmacy. Truly engage in their business of gardening. Very philanthropic

    Cons

    The people take themselves WAY too seriously. They are a C-level team at best but think that they are the end all, be all. They are bringing in very seasoned and experienced individuals but do not utilize their full knowledge and then try to shove them in their low-level box. The organizations and even categories within the organizations are very much so in silos. Due to all of this, the turnover is ridiculously high and the leadership does not seem to do anything about it or care which I guess shows that it is the usual for them. It is DEFINITELY a "good ol' " boys network. Minorities and women will struggle and only get so far in the company. The organization is working in at least 6 different directions which are all working against each other therefore getting it nowhere. Everyone in the organization complains continually about the issues, challenges and struggles yet no one does anything so the issues continue and grow to be even bigger issues.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your ivory towers and company jets and talk to the organization -- no, not the VPs, go to the lower levels. Assure them of no fear of retaliation and ask to help to make the company better in order to get the REAL truth. Talking about the problems in a Town Hall/Straight Talk meeting yet doing nothing about it will result in just that -- nothing.
