How is management perceived at Parterre Garden Services?

Pros

Working in beautiful gardens and many great crew members.

Cons

Terrible management, poor communication, gardeners must use their personal vehicles for daily use, very little training, employees are poorly paid and treated as disposable, lower level employees are made to feel like they are responsible when anything goes wrong, and company accepts way more projects than they have resources to successfully complete.

Advice to Management

Provide consistent and clear feedback to your employees so they know where they stand. Provide training and treat employees with respect. You cannot replace decent pay and a good working environment with free water bottles and a couple of company outings.
