    Pros

    Location near Half Moon Bay Beaches

    Cons

    Internal Communication Management not able to explain their measurable expectation & determine KPI's Traditional , fear based management. Managers like to control people instead of trusting their teammates and inspiring them to do great things. Covid!!!: Executives did not wear mask and forced all departments to be onsite.

    Pros

    I was passionate about my work and had a good relationship with my manager. The vacation plan is reasonable but when you are actually allowed to take time off is very limited. Many company employees have been here for decades and it creates a close welcoming group. I would only recomend this job to anyone who has specialized Ag/Greenhouse experience who lives in the Bay Area as this is pretty much the only company around that area.

    Cons

    Benefits are overpriced and the employee costs increase significantly year over year. I am not sure exaggerating about overpriced, ask before you accept an offer. The company COO is unprofessional, makes inappropriate comments and openly shares who is on his blacklist. While Ive worked here there have been at least 3 layoffs every year and it always makes you feel like you were walking on eggshells. There are no cost of living adjustments and small raises come after someone resigns or is laid off and you’re expected to absorb the work.

    Pros

    Customers are nice, employees are nice, products are nice, good variety of plants, provide good uniform polos and appron.

    Cons

    Company isn't honest with their employees, expect you to do the work of 3 or more people with little pay, only give you 10 minute breaks, easy to get hurt , wrecks your feet, 0 training policy, they use a lot of temporary people so their is a lot of new people all the time, they don't explain things well.
