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

    Pros

    Just about everything in this company is a "pro" from the benefits (best I have ever seen) to the culture. Really is too many things to list as a pro, I loved my job while I was there.

    Cons

    The only "con" is that my division of the company got sold/merged with TruGreen, so I will no longer be employed in a few weeks, but I will say they went out of their way to make the ordeal bearable, from the Severance to stay bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing
