Pros

My boss was well educated in law, sales, and business processes and instilled that knowledge to his employees.

I was fairly compensated for my performance.

Each year the company gets better as a national unit.

In the facility maintenance industry, Vanguard is heads and shoulders above the rest in management and progession

Cons

Each office is different, and some offices are not operated as well, some even poorly

Not a "sexy" industry

Customers can often look down on you as "just the cleaning company"

Benefits are just OK, not great (once again depends on the office)

Advice to Management

At my office, none. Some offices with husband and wife owners that are running the show need to let differences between them stop when they hit the door, and not make employees select sides. In addition, more offices should unified in training and development of franchisees, sales, operations, and office management.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Vanguard Cleaning Systems (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, flexibility and trust being qualities most evident. Family run business translates into a family like environment. Legitimately very much within what is promised to franchisees with every legal angle smartly covered. Progressive and In depth training, mentoring and certification program available for those who are serious about growing their business.

    Cons

    Quite often the system seems heavily loaded against the franchisee where they have no control over loss of accounts / business (due to unethical behavior by former employees and unforeseen circumstances) and since the Ops. guy is strategically placed in between master franchisor (Owner) and franchisee, operational functions becomes very challenging, thereby walking a fine line between peacemaker and villain.....never a protagonist.

    Advice to Management

    continue working on the legal : ethics balance
