    I have been working at TruGreen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, able to formulate your own sales tactics, a lot of training and support there if you need it from direct supervisor.

    Cons

    Trying to do everything from a corporation stand point instead of running things like a smaller business makes it challenging to compete with heavily involved local companies throughout the community. Sometimes can be a little short sighted.

    Pros

    Commission structure is awesome!
    Fair amount of vacation/sick/pto time
    Managers are accommodating and concerned about their employees.

    Hire older people who actually care about making a living, not young kids who view this as just a job that can be replaced

    I have been working at TruGreen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent (completely dependent upon your position). The work environment, the people I work with, benefits and flexibility are also pros for the company.

    Cons

    Lack of real training/development for new hires (regardless of position), no real opportunities for growth unless you are a tech or sales person.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a company wide raise. I think TruGreen needs re-evaluate some things and change its some processes to actually be considered competitive and more desired place to work for today's job market. Work on incentives to help increase employee morale.
