I worked at ValleyCrest Companies full-time for more than a year

Pros

ValleyCrest Development is a large company, and as such, offers similar perks, such as 401K, insurance benefits, and many location options. Training on some topics is readily available. The company is constantly working on Efficiency and focusing on quality of work.

Cons

Upper management can be unrealistic at times, in their expectations, but the company does well despite this. As with most construction jobs, work with them can be seasonal / subject to the economy's effects on the market.

    I worked at ValleyCrest Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Training is adequate, good benefits, and compensation is fair for the amount of work you have to do.

    Cons

    Corporate is out of touch with the way branch managers run their business units. Everything from financials to operations is a shell game and a cover up. Good thing they are private. I think Mr. Sperber would be ashamed of how his legacy is being carried out. They get what they can out of you and are not focused on development for future growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As large as ValleyCrest is, they need to implement more checks and balances instead of just going off of Ranking Reports. The Branch Managers are smart enough to manipulate every statistic and point fingers at the Account Managers.

    VCM allows me to build a maintenance team to be proud of, produce satisfied clients and profit, but it comes at a cost.

    I have been working at ValleyCrest Companies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You will work among the most talented landscape maintenance professionals in the industry.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance production employees. Recruiting to promote within is nearly nonexistent for management and upper management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance your talented employees within. VP's, BM's and OM's become familiar with middle management. Select individuals that you think would do well. Train these individuals to be successful and mentor them. The process to motivate through intimidation, threats and the "sink or swim" philosophy not only ruins confidence but also prevents employees wishing to advance to come forward. Do not wait for candidates to "throw their hat into the ring" We should hand pick our future successors.
