    Good experience for tax credit

    Leasing Agent (Former Employee) Palmetto, GA

    ProsGood experience to learn the in's and out's of the tax credit industry.

    ConsManagers are allowed to get away with murder! Coming to work late, taking 2 hour lunch breaks, leaving early, stealing Pedi cash money, forging signatures, having relationships with current residents, bringing children to work, piling leasing agents up with all of the work, and I've even seen the Marshalls come to the job to serve papers to the property manager for property damage and the manager faked sick for work that day! The managers have no appreciation for their staff what's so ever. Managers can be manipulative. Pay is extremely low for the hard work put in. Also, managers will work on all recertification's to get the commission.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate needs to monitor the property managers and be more involved with the properties hands on. They also need to treat each employee the same and show the employees appreciation....a card or something! This company is all about the $$$$. The vendors don't get paid and the apartments are getting worse and worse.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ambling Companies...not all that they want you to think they are.

    Office Staff (Current Employee) Valdosta, GA

    ProsDress down day is Friday. Jeans are allowed. All divisions of the company except the Construction company are allowed to get off at 1 pm on Fridays year round.

    ConsThe construction company employees are required to work extended hours, without additional compensation, and field staff and project managers are required to be away from their families for long periods of time on construction projects, due to promises of earlier completion deadlines, and / or errors and lack of planning by the other company divisions that shared responsibilities to the projects and that were essential to the timely completion of the projects.
    The Construction Division, which is solely responsible for the highest income for the total company, includes numerous accolades that are rarely recognized by the company corporate executives, and other department heads.
    No raises have been issued to Construction employees in the past 2 years, however the other divisions have been issued raises and bonuses to several employees.
    Vacations for designated field staff and their respective project managers, who are assigned to specific projects, are discouraged and seldom approved when construction projects are underway. When project managers take a few days off they are required to stay in contact with their projects daily during their allowed time off. Accrued hours for vacation not taken are lost at the end of the fiscal year and do not roll over.
    When there are financial disputes between the construction Company and the other divisions heads, the construction company is forced to concede due to favoritism extended by owner/executives to the disputing divisions. This is primarily due to the less fortunate financial status of the other divisions.
    During the recession period, the Construction company has cut the majority of its operating staff, leaving skeleton crews to run the projects...deeply affecting the quality of the product. The other divisions have made very few cuts of personnel that were essential for the survival of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is a recession. Get rid of the yachts, jets, vacation homes, hunting ranches, luxurious expensive vacations and start making cuts to highly compensated and key leadership personnel working on the non-productive divisions such as the Student Housing and Development teams. Start listening to the key personnel that produced the most income for your company...The Ambling Construction Co.
