    I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Provided leasing options for interested parties and assisted with managing day to day operations of the community.

    Cons

    I found the leadership with this organization to be less than professional. Management was more concerned with flipping apartments regardless of its condition. The hours that you work does not match the level of pay received.

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Incredibly high turn over. Not enough staff per property. No work/life balance. Inconsistency in management. Bonus potential but there were multiple times goals were hit and bonuses not paid. Management does not care about individuals. Hard to get support.

    Pros

    Great interview process in the beginning

    Cons

    You work minimum 6 days a week now that they're open Sundays. Too many issues with paychecks not being received, training program isn't worked the way they tell you it will, do ANYTHING to make money and keep occupancy, they fluff numbers for the big boss Larry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and not shady!

    Pros

    Decent pay IF you are new to the industry - but comparable if you have experience.

    Cons

    As the PCM you will work more than one weekend per month (as you are told in your interview). Bonuses are quarterly (and capped despite your results or achievements) AND your direct reports bonus monthly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They wouldn't pay attention anyway.

    I worked at The Connor Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great pay & benefits compared to other companies in the industry
    - Fun company events

    Cons

    - Micro managed (delusional if you think otherwise)
    - In the Atlanta market, you succeed as long as you're "rub elbows" with the right people. It's literally not what you know but who you're "cool" with; almost like high school - that's just the way it is get over it and move on. It's that simple. I've gone further than people that I know could do my job better than me effortlessly.

    If you haven't noticed most of the company reviews are from Ohio which is an entirely different experience than the Atlanta market. If you are considering an opportunity with TCG in Atlanta then those reviews will not paint an accurate picture of how messed up it really is.

    There are 3 types of people in the ATL market:

    1. "The Rookies": The new hires that are so happy to be there that they are completely oblivious to what's going on and what the heck they just signed up for. Usually still on cloud 9.

    2. "The Seniors": They've been around for a while and know all the do's and don'ts to keep their job. They passed the rookie phase and now they realize the mess they're in. It makes them sick but they fake it to make it until something better comes along. Usually they're the bread winners at home or single parents and can't afford to leave their job.

    3. "The Cult": The Illuminati of The Connor Group. Usually they're the ones that been around the longest. You know the type..their face is on the website, the new hire folder and any other photo op they can catch. They volunteer to organize every company event. They have no clue what's going on because they drunk too much Connor Group Punch. They believe that this is the best company on planet earth and with probably take a bullet for their superior. Be careful. The disease they carry is contagious and it's hard to get rid of.

    They will entice you with the great pay, the benefits, the culture of the company, all the rewards & gifts they throw at you but that's called a "bait and switch". If you live in Atlanta and you desire to work your way into the industry then TCG may be a good option. Learn as much as you can, gain the experience and leave. All that glitters is not gold. Attend every party and every event, you will quickly learn who to stick by to get ahead but REMEMBER learn what you can, gain the experience and get out.

    Pros

    Good training program, but too short of duration (not enough time in training)
    Holidays off, good bonus structure, decent pay
    There are some really good people in the company that work very hard and continue to do the right things for their team.
    The company is always trying to improve from their mistakes.

    Cons

    VERY long hours (summer time is crazy)
    High stress environment (lot's of pressure to meet sales goals)
    Turnover is high
    No HR department
    Your success can all depend on which property you are placed at.
    Never enough resources (time, payroll, staff, budget) to actually do your job
    Morale seems low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic with goals.
    Get an HR department for your employees.
    Keep doing a great job with improving policies and training!

    Pros

    The money is ok if you work for a good manager and hit your sales quotas. You get to me a wide variety of people.

    Cons

    Bonus structure varies from property to property. Upper management is completely unethical and no matter how well you do your job they will cut you down. Everyone is in it for themselves.

    Pros

    Depending on property there is good money to be made. If you are liked by the right people advancement is possible.

    Cons

    There is no human resource department for a reason. Its like a sorority run by a fraternity. Unprofessional enviornment. They rip off there residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about job performance than clicks. Get at least one person in human resources. Just because the senior managers like dumb attractive young girls dont let that determine how business is run.

    Worst Company Ever!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at The Connor Group

    Pros

    The only pro is that when and IF you ever hit your rediculously unattainable goals, you bonus big time. Other than that, I hated it.

    Cons

    Everything is a con. Not only are you taught to lie and cheat to succeed, but they try and brainwash you. It is an unethical, unmoral company. They create unattainable goals, and then you live in fear of your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    just close the company down.
