    A good company gone bad

    Branch Manager (Former Employee)
    Hayward, CA

    ProsThey have some old employees that will never leave and they are good. There is some legacy attitude and training that will remain with the older crews as long as they stick it out with the new mentality.

    ConsThey have shifted the focus to deceptive tactics to extract revenue from customers. They have lowered the initial pricing only to make it all back on the 'gravy' work. The current GM is entirely focused on profits. Sadly, they are becoming one more middle of the road landscaper. They still charge a lot only because of an old reputation. Lots of turn over here at the manager level. The current crop of top managers are ESL. This is okay but runs contrary to the 'high touch communication' motto. The owner will put a manager out in a management meeting and rip him to shreds. It's kind of sadistic. I've seen men come to tears with her.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop pretending to love your people. Your reputation as a bait and switch company is already loosing you work, you should stop the money grab and move back a few steps.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    a busy job in a busy industry.

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementIf you loos the trus of your customer, they will go somewhere else.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No stability or respect

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Hayward, CA

    ProsNot going out of business this winter (like some other companies).

    ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementGet it over with and sell the company .

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very oppressive work place. The company is in crisis mode and are out of control

    Branch Manager (Former Employee)
    Hayward, CA

    Prosgood marketing and recruiting efforts

    ConsThe 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.
