      Cons

      None, the Company when it was called ValleyCrest Companies was great. Right now is under the name Brightview I didn't work for them.

      Poor Management

      Pros

      Good benefits, not really much more than that to say. Branch level is highly disconnected from corporate and corporate doesn't care.

      Cons

      Poor treatment, poor life/work balance, poor advancement opportunities, too much company politics, and so much more...

      Pros

      They hire convicts because they get tax breaks to do so.

      Cons

      Worst company I've ever worked for. Poor training system. Poor communication. Bullying, intimidation, fear, and condescending employees is their modus operandi for management. Numbers driven management with small profit margins causes excess of strain on poorly trained employees. This produces poor results for the client. They failed to inform me during the interview process they don't pay you when it rains, which is all the time in Florida. Pays poorly, even when you're allowed to work. Company had a "reimbursement" policy for buying Camelback bags. Brought my receipt in, they took it, never saw any money though they continually reminded me I should be reimbursed by now. Can't say enough bad things about this horrible company.

      Pros

      Lots of fun projects to be a part of.

      Cons

      Since merging with Brickman to become BrightView, it's not the same company anymore. Bert is probably turning over in his grave. He built an empire and was a caring, loving person. Now everyone is just a number like any other organization. For all you looking for a job, be wary of companies that have the logo "Our biggest assets are our people". Anyone can talk the talk but not very many I know of who will walk the walk. It's all about the bottom line.
