    I worked at Brickman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Leadership team was great to work for and the best in the industry. Open, honest place to work where employee development and process improvement was at the forefront.

    Cons

    Too good to be true! Knew it was only a matter of time before it was bought.

    Advice to Management

    Duplicate it.

    I worked at Brickman full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work but does take a person who pays attention to detail and follows directions. Great supervisor too.

    Cons

    Lol only con I can think of is the smell at the end of the day.

    Pros

    Good chance to work with diverse crew, practice time management, and learn the "on the ground" side of the business.

    Cons

    Sales was unrealistic about estimating jobs. Crews take great pride in delivering excellent work but the money isn't built in when bidding jobs to do job correctly. Crews and supervisors get dumped on from Superintendents and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver on promises made to new hires, give them training opportunities and prepare them for promotions rather than bringing in outside hires that don't fulfill and just move on to the next job.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, some great people, group outings, salary was ok.

    Supervisors can be hypocritical and very unprofessional especially when cussing out peers and employees. Favoritism is very apparent and targets are too.
