    Pros

    Big and stable company. Sales reps, receive company car, gas card , ipad. Industry is recession proof ( almost ) . Commercial Sales only way to go! Better hours!! Good work home life balance!! Not a bad job , just have to focus on the good!

    Cons

    Lots of competition within your own company. Beyond local management no one really cares who sells what. Your competition is everywhere from small time companies, to large companies, your own tech's and residential side of business. Also it is a turn and burn sale. No real residual. Hard to find verticals other than hotels (w/ bed bug ) that can provide residual sales. You must follow up on everything as lots of management will drop the ball on your deals. Makes it challenging to follow through for your customers.

    Advice to Management

    Work on protecting the back door as it seems that is where the issues are in the company. Stop paying techs to sell. Pay them to service!!!

    Pros

    401k plan, not much else I can say as the changes made over the past 5 years have been catastrophic to the morale and consistency of the company

    Cons

    Lost balance, focus on the $ rather than the employees or the customer. Complaints and law suits abound from employees. Totally unethical procedures where if a complaint is made and its a favored employee nothing is done, but if you are not one of the "Golden children" start looking for a job.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back some ethical direction stand by YOUR ABSOLUTES. Just not when its convenient.

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of one good reason to work at Terminix.

    Cons

    The company demands a 60-65 hour work week for very little pay. To make things worse they recently cut pay nationwide for the third year in a row. We fake are lunch breaks in the computer cause we don't have time to actually eat or take a lunch break. When a customer doesn't pay their bill the employee has to pay for it out of their check. The management has zero respect for the employees and their work life balance. Due to disorganization they have successfully taken a 8 hour work day and turned it into 11-13 hour work day. We are constantly yelled at when customers don't pay their bills. They make us call 45 customers and write hand written letters to customers once a week. We do this at dinner time and we don't get paid for it. The manager forces us to spray houses and bill people who have canceled. The company has raised it's rates on the customer and we spray the cheapest watered down chemical on the market. We can't get the chemicals that work because the managers get larger bonuses if they keep the cost down. We literally spray pesticides that barely work. We have to make three or four trips to a house to solve a problem that should take one trip with the right chemical. Overall the management only cares about how numbers look on paper and could careless about the service we provide. I've never worked for such a unethical company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overworking your employes and belittling them over customers not paying their bills. Don't expect employees to give 100% when you keep cutting our pay and providing us with cheap supplies. Try to organize so we don't have to work from 7am until 9pm. Block are schedules so we can actually eat a lunch.
