    I have been working at Swisher International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Swisher can be a great company to work for.

    Good hours
    Holidays off
    Good Pay
    Cafe on site
    Credit Union on site(open 3 days wk)
    Yearly Bonus in December
    Lots of good people

    Cons

    Department Heads do not work together very well in some cases, in others the buddy system of upper management means you cannot switch departments if one does not want to let you go.
    Despite your qualifications or desires, you could get stuck in one spot for a long time.
    Most people are friendly, there are a few bad apples as with anywhere I guess.

    Advice to Management

    Reward excellence. Don't forget we all have room to improve, even management.

    Decent pay ,good work hours I really have meet and worked with a lot of good employees. I've work in (5) different department so I'm a people person...

    Poor communication from Upper management to Supervision. Management is the last to know important information which causes a lot of problem. Company is moving jobs over seas....

    Advice to Management

    Keep Supervision in the loop before employees know important information would be very helpful. Need for decent pay raises....

    I worked at Swisher International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits cannot be beat. Since leaving I have found no other company with health benefits as affordable as Swisher's. As an employee I received a company smartphone and vehicle. People I worked with and for were great. Ideal position for someone fresh out of college with career advancement if you work hard.

    Cons

    My Territory was very large and required a lot of time behind the wheel. With the travel came overnights which I grew weary of.

    Advice to Management

    Make territories more manageable by reducing their size.

    Pros

    No over night travel, good people.

    Cons

    Transition period from Ecolab acquistion and direction in limbo. Large driving distances to visit low volume accounts make for long days. 24/7 emergency response. I do not get many calls but some account managers do. Because of territory radius it could be 5 hours round trip for emergency response. Pay cuts for 3 years running. Company had legal issues and not profitable in some regions because of "D" level customer base. Credit issues with Independent owners.

    Advice to Management

    Spell out a plan in writing for the future projection and put Swisher on corporate contracts to secure "A" acounts with high sales volume or y
