Coming from another Management company that cared nothing about their employees, I find Sterling to be a nice change. If you are a hard worker and do your job well, Management does acknowledge it. Though visits and encounters are few and far between, when corporate employees are on site they do take the time to recognize you and make you feel like you are important to them.Cons
I'm one to like structure, so reporting does not bother me all too much. The more frustrating aspect of the reports is the fact that they don't seem to be read, and then it feels like busy work at times.
I think cons will vary depending on what property you work for. Working at an older community, we would love to see some more money put into the property. When you work on site long enough, it starts to feel like your second home. There is a lot of potential to be had and we are just not putting in the funds to get it there. The disconnect and opinions on what each property "needs" can be trying.
Maintenance will forever be understaffed. In this day and age when people want things right away, the calculation of having one maintenance person per 100 units is slightly absurd. This is especially ridiculous when maintenance members are expected to do work orders, apartment turns, snow removal, etc. all in-house.
Micromanaging is definitely an issue. It makes your job a lot harder when you have to ask several people for permission to do one thing. The time that this consumes causes chain reactions of stress for not only the employees, but the residents.Advice to ManagementAdvice
As Sterling knows, they have some excellent employees. Make sure they have the tools they need to succeed (and help YOU succeed), and consider their concerns with an open mind.RecommendsNeutral Outlook
