Current Employee - Account Manager in Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Account Manager in Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at ValleyCrest Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

All the benefits of a big company--stable, employee benefits (401k, vacation, medical, dental)--in a landscape company. Lots of work outside.

Cons

When times are busy--most of the time--they are really busy. Long hours with lots to juggle. Corporate involvement can be tiresome and add more to the workload. If you aren't driven and don't take control of your own training/advancement, you most likely won't succeed.

    I worked at ValleyCrest Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with most people at my branch, and the work was fun and interesting. When the workload was balanced, we could do great things.

    Cons

    The top branch leadership didn't seem interested in the issues on my projects or in my personal workload. The culture seemed to promote managing the perception of corporate bosses rather than getting involved and actually directing the branch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to corporate management: honestly evaluate the branches with feedback from the employees. Put more emphasis on real leadership and interpersonal effectiveness when filling top branch positions.

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

    Pros

    My peers within the branch worked hard and tried to support each other as a team

    Cons

    Branch management and upper management is a complete joke. They will lie, cheat, and cover up their mistakes by blaming account managers. There is absolutely no support at the AM level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Does anyone from Corporate even know what is going on?? Stop managing from a spreadsheet and start looking at the reality of what is happening at the branch level. Stop to consider why branches can't keep an account manager for longer than a year.
