    I worked at Brickman full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people are good to work with and will usually take advise unless ideas are to radicle.

    Cons

    Typical Mow, blow and go landscape maintenance company. Pay is below average and the work vs. family time is very poor. Long hours. Although safety is a big concern and effort now, local braches still don't follow the new safety requirements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are to many layers in the upper management i.e. regionally and nationally. National sales needs to step up and make a better presence.

    I worked at Brickman full-time

    Pros

    Gained experience quickly, was advanced to higher position within a year. A nation-wide leader in commercial landscaping, Brickman employees have more opportunity to transfer between branches to pursue advancement. My ideas were received by management with an open mind. Insurance benefits were good.

    Cons

    Employees and customers suffer because of cost-cutting measures in a competitive market. Projects are underbid and employees are overworked often - good employees are not retained as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees, even at the lowest level. Pay for experience and offer tangible incentives through a review process that is actually followed. Make safety, rather than the appearance of safety, a priority. Give people the skills they need to grow and cultivate a culture of teamwork, including between different levels of management.
