  1. "Good company"

    Current Employee - Account Manager in New York, NY

    Pros

    Great schedule, you get to plan out your day accordingly. You get a company car and pretty much all expenses during your workday excluding lunch is included.

    Cons

    Company was bought by Ecolab which is a great company in itself but the transition has been far from easy.

    Advice to Management

    Just a little more clarity on the end the game. It is a dramatic change every week which disrupts and also discredits the face of the company which is the account manager.

    I worked at Swisher Hygiene full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was OK, raises were notn-exixtant, unless your job title changed.. Quick to correct payroll errors. Corporate office employees were accessable for questions, but had few answers. .

    Cons

    The company grew to fast, they aquired to many companies to quickly, with out a good plan of action on how to cohnsolidate everyone into one cohesive unit. They would implement a plan then a couple of months later change it again. They lost or got rid of a lot of good ,faithful, long term, employees then hired a lot of new people that for the most part did not stay long, or were fired after a short time. It seemed honest communication coming from the cororate office was a rare thing.

    Advice to Management

    communicate, communicate, communicate. Appreciate the good employees you have, keep them. Listem to the input from your employees. Take their suggestions, and ideas into advisement, they may have some of the answers you are looking for.
