    I worked at The Connor Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Development professionally: management skills, administration, capital projects and office. Busy environment. Company cares about employees financial future and pay is well.

    Cons

    Favoritism is very strong. Underline racism within company. There needs to be diversity training for upper management if there isn't any. You hear a lot of comments about cultures and people referred to as "colored" by some. I was even called names by upper management and nothing was done. People are so scared of the next person. Nobody says anything until the situation is unavoidable. Employees are only appreciated or shown recognition if they're a favorite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take things out on employees because you're having a bad day. Show recognition to everyone. Train better. Appreciate your hard workers a lot more.

    Pros

    Reward & Recognition is top notch

    Cons

    Upper Management can be married to their staff and get away with it. Look around, do you see any men working as property managers.....they don't hire men! They will get audited by the Department of Labor one day and the whole ship will sink. Knock, Knock Mr. Connor it is illegal to discriminate against men.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its 2014, hiring practices and labor relation policies really do exist. Get with it or you will be on the news shortly explaining why you don't hire men for your properties.

    I worked at The Connor Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Sleeing late because hours are 930 to 7

    Cons

    Racial profiling, ripping off residents by charging 90 for cable while the company pays 24. Water is 29 yet the city only charges a couple bucks avg.per unit. Raising rent in different amounts for different people. Mold, junk appliances, keeping deposits. They pay bonuses months after you earn them and if you resign before the check goes out..they void it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run an ethical business and stop paying your employees to post this nonsense about your great company when you are being sued by so many people.

    I really can't think of anything good about working here.

    Pros

    There are some hard working co-workers who are secretly complaining with you.

    Cons

    Budget is so tight they won't fix things when they need repaired. Selectively charge different people different fees and rent. Terrible hours. Bonuses paid months after they are earned. Intimidating practices are used and enlisting people to post reviews on here and apartment ratings sites by offering gift cards. Unethical practices in credit reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The list is too long.

    Pros

    Working with residents, making their homes as welcoming as possible (within Connor Group limits which did not allow for much)

    Cons

    Do your research before taking a job with this company look up what they do to their residents, (or don't do) The leadership fills these opinion surveys out to pad the public opinion of them. They are unethical in so many ways. Thus very very high turnover.

    Pros

    Paid training, bonuses if hit sales goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put effort into physically improving properties instead of pressuring staff and potential lessors
