This is not a sexy IPO, its a landscape company going public. I rather invest in soybean famers.
For working at BrightView, it was a complete waste of my time. This company is a nightmare for people that have a true "la pasion" in the green industry as stewards to our mother earth.
BrightView's only view is on money, profit, and their biggest asset is not their people, but the profit they bring to their new shareholders.
A very unhealthy place to work and unless someone that has been with the company with actual pull got you the job and can actually protect you from getting harassed, laid off legally or not, you will be open season from upper management from day 1, as I was targeted from the two face pricks in the Irvine office location.
Plus, their benefits suck, where the medical coverage is garbage (thank God I had coverage from my wife's insurance), no dental or eye care, no 401k match, and they didn't even assist with moving costs. It was a complete regret and a waste of my time, where even years later, I don't even tell people or list on my resume I worked at BrightView.
See in this wonderful green industry, BrightView had a place, but they have bullied many outside their walls and rubbed a lot of people in Orange County (and I am sure elsewhere) the wrong way, and no one is impressed. Good Luck.
