    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.

    Pros

    Good side job depending on the manager and co worker. Not much supervision so you are required to be independent in the work place.

    Cons

    Nothing of major importance to note

    Advice to Management

    No less than 2 people working together

    I worked at Scotts Miracle-Gro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The management was excellent and we were given many free lunches
    Training was superb and the staff were truly amazing.

    Cons

    The system failed far too often; so we wasted time rebooting also; our neighbor's fire alarm went off too often.

    Advice to Management

    You all were excellent, so I do not have any advice besides keep doing what you have always been doing.

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

    Pros

    Helping customers, working independently in retail stores, freedom to build product displays, decent benefits, decent training, mileage re-imbursement

    Cons

    Tons of products and brands to merchandise, over 110, very physical work, lots of climbing up and down ladders with heavy products, working with store managers can be a pain in the butt, need a lot of help and assistance from store employees to properly set up displays and get pallets down from top of shelves,

    Advice to Management

    They need to retain good employees better and make it easier for employees to move up in the company and not treat us as 'churn and burn' employees
