    Pros

    Large company but lacks the cut-throat competitiveness that you'd find elsewhere.

    Cons

    Growth through acquisition causing some inefficiencies - but Associa is actively pursuing quality in these areas.

    Pros

    Worked at the Honolulu office. I loved my co-workers. Pay was great.

    Cons

    Corporate could care less about their employees, it was all about the financial bottom line, which is totally fine? But happy employees make a work place run alot smoother.

    Pros

    I was paid what I was worth. Great team of people to work with and very supportive.

    Cons

    Too many changes in management staff. Property management is really boring. The work is too easy, never felt challenged.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing company values on staff when you know they don't mean anything. Just be a good company and treat employees with respect because that is key to earning "best company to work for"

    Pros

    Associa is a good company because the leaders make a real point to create an atmosphere that employees enjoy. There are always events going on that boost employee morale (birthday celebrations, anniversary celebrations, etc.) and always opportunities for employees to get involved in things like charity and the company will support causes that are important to employees. Other things: lots of room for growth and many people have been around for a while and it's a good, stable industry.

    Cons

    There really aren't any remarkable cons to list, except maybe if you want to float under the radar, this isn't the place for you. There really is never a dull moment, but people who aren't used to a fast-paced environment may not do well here.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to keep it up. The fact that employee morale is one of the company's core values is always a good sign and as long as that's the case, I believe the company will remain successful.

    Pros

    Associa is working on some big goals and it is exciting to see them come to life. It creates a very fast paced environment where you can make a difference quickly.

    Cons

    Because of all of our goals and change, you have to be flexible and adaptable to work in this environment. You also have to be patient. We don't have all of the pieces in place today toward our ultimate vision but with time we will get there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the big goals and don't get distracted by shiny objects!

    Pros

    They talk a lot about family and it really feels that way when i am in the office. Even though there is a hierarchy of who is in charge everyone feels like they are equal. There are lots of opportunities to shine and it will be noticed.

    Cons

    Clients can be picky at times and are frustrating to deal at times, but regardless we always find common ground and get our goals accomplished. Management is going through a transition and things are a bit hectic but there is light at the end of the tunnel and the direction they are heading is right in line with some of the bigger companies in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the bigger companies (both external practices for customers and internal practices for employees) and find out what makes them successful then apply that to Associa. Survey people about what they most enjoyed about their previous jobs or companies they worked for/with

    Pros

    being owned by a senator (now former) meant a lot of favorable laws got pushed through to make the government support our company

    Cons

    I'm only popping up here because I did work there and it was terrible and there's clearly been a letter writing campaign for positive reviews on glassdoor. All the negative reviews are specific, all the positive reviews are clearly written by the same marketing person, generalized and within a few days of each other. No one gives a company 5 stars for "trying hard". So, here's the scoop, if you can get hired in IT, you're fine because the managers are supportive and the rest of the company is scared of what they don't understand. If you get hired in marketing, make sure you realize who has political influence and know how to be political with them. Operations goes through people faster than a sneeze. Project management is highly visible with pretty large egos and relatvely little influence. HR is an oversized department with seemingly little influence other than hiring, firing and talking to each other. Sales isn't given any tools to do their jobs effectively or track their leads. Avoid any management position.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being blinded by pretty words and look for actual acheivements.
