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

    Pros

    Overall the company has great benefits including vacation, sick/personal time, 401K, reward and recognition and compensation. I really enjoy the challenges the company presents. I am always recognized when I overachieve any goals given. I really like all of our company events. Its a great way to meet new people and build lasting friendships! I also really like that I get to see my regional manager every week and the CEO of the company comes to visit at least every other month! That shows me that the CEO really cares about his company and the success of his employees!

    Cons

    My first few months here were a little rocky. I wasn't trained properly and office staff was either quitting or being fired. Since then I have been re-trained in a timely manner and given all the tools to be very successful at my job. I have also seen the company build their training department really well and this has given a lot of new employees the ability to start strong! I have been offered different opportunities, but unfortunately no follow up, so I am still in the same position as when I started. I really like the job that I have, however, I don't like to stay stagnant professionally. I like the ability to move up in a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice for employees to be able to complete a survey of our property manager and/or regional manager to ensure our managers are evaluating their supervising techniques, team building skills, and overall job. My only advice to our regional/upper management would be to recognize our property managers more and they will in return recognize their own employees. I have noticed that if my manager is not recognized for their hard work, they don't recognize their own staff. The domino effect comes from the top down!

    Pros

    One of my favorite things about the companies I work for: I actually get to meet the man that started it all. Larry Connor is very involved and there is no greater feeling than shaking hands with the man who created such a successful company. The company is very regulated, numbers based, and systematic. Literally, if you follow "the Connor way", you are set up for success.

    Cons

    There are quite a few, however it is not the company. Each region may be ran a little differently. One aspect I wish was a little different was the work-life balance. You are expected a lot of the time to put in extra hours to hit numbers and do not really get compensation for it. Hitting your numbers is of course a huge reward, but you find yourself living at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just say follow the systems a bit more. Larry Connor is very intelligent and he has created a company built for success. One little step in the wrong direction creates disaster, deranging from the core values he has put in place to live by.

    Pros

    This is a company with great people to work with. The company has solid benefits included ranging from salary to bonuses to insurance to 401K.

    Cons

    The Atlanta Region is limited on positions after property manager. In order to be successful, you will have to have a very strong work ethic and be prepared for working 50 plus hours a week including Saturdays and possibly Sundays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training still needs development.

    Pros

    Fun environment with energetic people! Good pay with great benefits! Great mixture of talent and wonderful melting pot of people. Successful company that demands perfection from all its employees!

    Cons

    There is a lack of structure in some areas. Some of the employee structuring does not make sense. Some employees do not fit our core values or culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less favoritism would be nice.

    Pros

    Hard work does pay off. Even though getting through a project may take some time and quite a bit of stress, The Connor Group does a great job of letting their employees know they are appreciated.

    Cons

    The interview process is lengthy and a bit confusing. A candidate is not quite sure when the process will end.

    Pros

    Experience managing your own business with all the tools and resources to make it a success, People Count! Competitive pay,(no matter what industry you come from) your leadership skills are put to the test and developed to a new level, Semi-annual awards banquets that recognize the best of the best, on going training from proven leaders within the company in a multitude of different positions.

    Cons

    Gaining the kind of extensive career growth and experience that The Connor Group offers will not come with a 9-5 schedule. Be prepared to work long days and at least 2 weekends a month (maybe more if YOUR business needs it).

    Pros

    They are very good are rewarding hard work, you can always win stuff off a list of personal items that you want as long as you make your goals- I have won things from game tickets, concert tickets, gift cards, etc.... As long as you make your goals and hit your numbers you will be just fine. The def let you know and do great things for you when you hit your numbers and they def let you know when you do not..... It is a very fun job, you get to meet alot of people. I like the people that I work with and they actually seem to care about you as a person to. I def have more positive things to say about working here than negative ones. The management that works fort this company are some of the hardest working people I have ever been around- Overalll I am very happy working for the Connor Group

    Cons

    Be prepared to work crazy hours, often times I miss dinner plans because I could not leave on time because you get stuck. I also do not like the fact that sometimes you work on a Sunday unexpectantly when you had plans... I would also like to take a vacation in the Summer time and go to the beach but they have black out in the summer but I also knew all this when I took the job so I cannot complain really....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets have more community events for the residents- spending a little bit more money on the people that are making me a paycheck would help keep happy residents... also investing a little more money in the offices, new furniture etc,... If the office looks old and out of date, the first impression to potential renters is that our apartments will be old and out of date also. Also it is way to hard to answer the phone on the first ring some days......I also feel like you need to promote within the company instead of hiring in new property managers who have zero experience in the apartment industry.
