    I have been working at Scotts Miracle-Gro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A fast-paced and high-change environment so you must like this pace of work in order to be successful. This is a large international company but operates like a medium sized business meaning you will get exposure to higher level initiatives and leadership. Casual corporate culture but can be aggressive at times. The Marysville Corporate Headquarters has a beautiful campus with state of the art wellness center.

    Cons

    The fast-pace and casual culture could be a negative to some people. A lot of acquisition work can make it hard to keep up to speed on business processes and streamlining them.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize lower level associates more and be more transparent with organizational changes. The general workforce tends to find these changes out after the fact.

    SMG has a great company personality and culture. If you have a passion for the job, and are truly able to multi-task, you will do well.

    Trust the people you hired to do the job you hired them for, and give them the tools they need to perform efficiently.
