    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Asplundh full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, Compensation is comparably high to other contract planning groups. Management expects their employees to be self motivated and supplement there training with independent learning. This fosters continual dialogue between peers and leads. Family atmosphere, allow for flexible schedule and ability to 'make up time' if emergencies occur. Try to provide fun activities to build team spirit - in n' out...

    Cons

    Those who are hesitant to ask questions or communicate their inefficiencies find themselves struggling to keep up with the fast paced environment. expected to keep a good attitude, and those that don't are generally asked to leave. Utility dictates amount of OT, so feast or famine in that respect management is talked about as being 'clicky' and hard to break into.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Asplundh full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    No supervisor looking over your shoulder so if your self motivated to get mileage there will be nobody to slow you down. weekly paycheck you get to learn alot about trees.....

    Cons

    Rules imposed on you makes you feel like your a little kid. income capped Rules to get bonuses are constantly changed to where it is harder and harder to get a bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better and you wont constantly be having to find replacements...

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Asplundh

    Pros

    It is consistent work In a very inconsistent economic time.

    Cons

    There is no room for upward mobility outside working on a crew where one will max out as a foreman. The management potential is so limited due to the fact it's a privately owned family business. There are no benefits outside general foreman who are greatly underpaid for the level of stress and the time invested.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, you seem to do a great job exploiting your workers and making a killing at it. Corporate america at it's finest. Not to be negative, I truly believe you have a great business model; although it would be nice to not cap out on salary within the first 2 years without any reasonable notion of advancement.

    I have been working at Asplundh

    Pros

    Worked indepently " Most of the time" You get to work outside, and drive many counrty roads.

    Cons

    Some GF are very unprofessional and treat you like garbage. Every vehicle has an GPS unit witch the supervisor sits at home and monitors every move you make! Work 12 to 14 hours a day and get paid for 10 hours. Phone rings off the hook!

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with the workers, don't bark out orders from the comfort of your home, and work the same hours that the crews are working.
