    Not a bad company to work for, but there are a few flaws.

    I have been working at Essex Property Trust

    Pros

    -Decent pay/commission based compensation structure.
    -Some flexibility with time off. If you need to take vacation you can ask employees from sister properties to cover for you.
    -Bonuses offered to lease longstanding vacant apartments.
    -Sense of team spirit.
    -Professional environment.
    -They reimburse you for laundry (Essex apparel only)
    -Good experience.
    -Job security (so long as you meet your goals of course)

    Cons

    They overwork employees. There is not enough staff. I refuse to believe they can't find people to hire. They just milk their employees and expect the same high level of work output with only 3/5th the staff. They hire and promote people who are related to or are friends with a current employees. Not a huge con but they do this a lot and then end up hiring relatively incompetent/under qualified people.
    Huge salary cuts recently, while, I'm sure upper management saw raises.
    They try to squeeze every last penny out of residents from their security deposit to make up for vacancy loss caused by their own ill model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop raising rents obnoxiously! Tenants leave and then we have apartments stay vacant for months, suffer vacancy loss, only to reduce the rate and rent them out at even lower rates than what the previous tenants were paying! It makes no sense! The problem is the current software we are using to generate pricing!
    The leasing staff has the power to keep your residents happy, rent and increase revenue. Please don't be cheap and hire sufficient staff so that the job can be done right.
