I have been working at serpico landscaping

Pros

Not going out of business this winter (like some other companies).

Cons

They just cut back the crews hours to 7 hours per day, even though the leaves are falling like crazy. The problem is, they want the crews to take 2 hours unpaid lunch so it looks like they are still working a full day. The owners are always spending time looking for ways to trick the customers and trick the crews. Not like it used to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get it over with and sell the company .

    Pros

    good marketing and recruiting efforts

    Cons

    The company is all about profits and can't deal with the current ecomony. They did a wage cut of 10% for all. They recently fired 20% of the production staff. How will the work get done? Very mean spirited owners.

    Pros

    The company has a good reputation in some areas. There are some nice people that work there. They have a bbq every summer. The trucks are pretty new.

    Cons

    Very high turn over at the foreman, supervisor, and branch manager level. There is only one manager that has been there for more than 10 years. Most managers get fired in 10 to 18 months. My customers tell me that they used to have better pricing. Now the prices have come down on the contract and they try to make all of the money back on extras. Mabey lots of companies are doing this now, but it seems to put the company in risk of loosing contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you loos the trus of your customer, they will go somewhere else.
