    I worked at Rentokil Initial full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company Service Vehicle; Gas Card; the Company Benefits and Matching 401k are FANTASTIC. Co - Workers are overall generally good.

    Cons

    SCHEDULING. The Route Logistics are terrible. IMO; Rentokil is one gigantic lousy company that has decent pay and great benefits. That's it.

    Advice to Management

    KNOW you had nothing to do with it; but when Rentokil acquired Steritech and Ehrlich; you basically obliterated what was once 2 previously good companies.
