    I worked at Camden Property full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you have zero education but are outgoing and looking for a fun environment, then this place is for you! If are willing to wait years for a promotion you can earn in minutes then you should go for it!

    Cons

    Micro managed, dramatic, political, unprofessional, uneducated, uninspired & dysfunctional are just a few of the words I would use to describe Camden. Management earned positions based on tenure not on customer service skills or management ability. I went in motivated and inspired, 2 weeks in I was treated like a child and micro managed beyond belief. My manager took. 2 hour lunch breaks and ran personal errands during work hours. I was not allowed to share my ideas or bring any concerns to management. Issues with residents were not a priority. Absolutely, the worse company to work for. Disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to performance. Stop micro managing. Reward high performers with more than emails!

    Pros

    Uniforms, benefits and nothing else

    Cons

    Property managers are basically concierges who brown nosed their way to the top. They have no clue of real property management. Its not parties or drinking sessions. It doesn't mean you own your employees or have the right to threaten firing your staff at any point.

    During interview you are told huge pipe dreams and promised a family organization and once hired the less are exposed. People with no experience cannot lead a properly functioning team and will pull everyone's moral down.

    Sorry I wasted my time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experienced property managers and make sure your upper management understand ethics, customer relations, project management, hr management, team leadership. Stop promoting your friends and instead invest in restructuring based on all your negative comments and all of who have filed this review and the one you sent us "for our honest feedback"

    Pros

    Can't think of anything at all.

    Cons

    Too many politics~ People in upper management are BLIND to events and need to re-evaluate why they are in a people industry . They treat them without any dignity or repspect and that goes for employees as well as residents

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to give because they DO NOT LISTEN

    Pros

    Uniforms make mornings easier. Usually have a decent product.

    Cons

    Mid managers are laughable. Some brown-nose so much that it is sickening. Upper management tries too hard to be friendly and act as though they care when in fact they don't care abut you at all. Again, mid managers can make or break someone becuse they are too immature to know how to handle a situation. That's where HR comes in. They will side with whome ever is more popular. If they don't know you, too bad. You loose! Pitiful. The company promises raises and 0i still haven't gotten mine!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are only as good as your weakest link! Pay attention to maintenance and leasing agents, and all other non-management . They know what they are talking about! You are so easily fooled!
