    I have been working at Bartlett Tree Experts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Though every office is different, and I can only speak for mine, I've had some great learning opportunities working with guys that have been in the field for decades. We typically try to wrap up our days at 3:00, and the medical benefits are actually pretty great.

    Cons

    Very poor management puts the production crews in frustrating situations, poor communication when it comes to management as well. Hours get VERY scarce in the winter.

    I worked at Bartlett Tree Experts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Out of most big commercial tree companies, they're one of the better to work for. Unfortunately, that's not saying much. If overtime is your thing, and you live to do tree work, this might be your thing. If not, stay away.

    Cons

    Horrible working conditions are common and customers give very little appreciation even on the most professional job done or difficult working scenario. There's a very poor wage, and many of the people drawn to this field are rejects from any other profession. In addition, you'll find yourself competing with other tree companies, the kind most would call 'hacks.' Not only that, but people will assume you're one of them. Advancement opportunities are very limited, and unless you squeeze your way into a sales rep or corporate position, you'll end up working as a foreman for the rest of your life. Do you want to be stuck cutting down, trimming, and hauling trees until you're 65? If you even make it that far in this field without a serious injury knocking you out of this line of work, consider that winning the lottery.
