management will lie to you and stab you in the back
Vegetation clearance officer (scoper) (Former Employee) –  South Australia15 February 2016
the workers are a great bunch to work with but management aren't they lie to you to make it sound like they are willing to work with you but when you join its a "do it or find another job" attitude half of them don't know what it takes to do the job properly in the field and if you make a small mistake they give you a written warning so find some where else to work
Pros
no two days are the same
Cons
no job security if they want you gone start looking for another job

Tree Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC23 October 2018
It is a fast paced working environment. Pretty much same type of work everyday, not much variety. if you enjoy tree maintenance work this is the job for you.

Productive & enjoyable workplace epecially for those who like to work away from home
Horticulturist (Current Employee) –  South Australia12 August 2018
Great sense of team when working 'On-Ground'

I have learnt quite a lot about the processes involved when managing vegetation around powerlines

Management does appear to be a 'footy Club' here in South Australia.

As far as the workplace culture goes "It's not what you know, it's who you know"

If you're looking to advance within the company in South Australia, you will not- unless you play for the same football team. Workplace nepotism. Which is a shame, because the skills on-ground, far outweigh the skills in South Australia's upper management (education, training, REAL knowledge vs office knowledge). Which is a loss to the progression and betterment of Active Tree Services SA division

But the travel and people you get to meet, make it all worth it, if you can look past the exclusivity.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Being away from home
