    Pros

    They do value their employees and try to make the HQ office a place where you want to spend your 10 hour days!

    Cons

    Very bottom line oriented. Not enough $ to hire proper support staff levels.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money and add headcount. Don't overwork your people.

  2. Decent pay not worth the mistreatment from ill placed management.

    Pros

    While employed I made slightly above average pay.
    Not micro-managed by corporate level or regional level management. This also could be viewed as a con.

    Cons

    Horrible treatment from ill trained and undeserving management.
    No training to speak of.
    No promotion without being in with the "in crowd".
    Not encouraged to offer customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your teams and stop only worrying about the money you're bullying out of residents.

    Pros

    hhmm. no. smart enough to fire anyone before they get sued. :)

    Cons

    Hr is a joke. They are unfair. They assume everything is true, when they do not even investigate. They fire everyone to not deal with them. Bell is most known for firing people for NO REASON. They will lie and make things up to the point where its sad. On two occasions, they fired 3 or 4 different people in a week simply people someone lied and yelled out discrimination. Human resources are a bunch of airheads.

    Advice to Management

    Unqualified / pathetic HR staff, please open your eyes.

    Pros

    Overall great family culture between communities. Everyone is willing to help each other out. Overall company does look to promote from within. Pay and benefits are decent and work life balance is evident.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between Senior Management and onsite teams when new initiatives are rolled out. It's apparent that feedback was not sought out from end users. With all companies there is always office politics and those that are favorites are "taken care of"

    Pros

    Only pro will be when they go out of business and quit stealing people's money and having people living in a trashy disgusting neighborhood. The only bigger joke than their complexes is the management that runs them...

    Cons

    Everything!! They are terrible with everything they have and do. They are a joke to be around, only thing worse than their complexes is the so called management that runs them...

    Advice to Management

    Improve your property improve your managers and people running them.. It's a joke to be around!

  8. Good Company if you join the clique!

    Pros

    The company had average benefits and many job opportunities in the area and nationwide. Quick growth within the company is obtainable. Guest suites available at many properties for employees traveling on vacation providing for an inexpensive place to stay compared to hotels. Discounted rent at properties for employees.

    Cons

    Medical benefits were very limited. Employer 401k Provider not very good and employer match was ok at 100% up to the first 3% invested. %50 for the remainder 2% invested.
    Promotions are based very much on "who you know" and not rewarded to those with experience and best fit for the position. Continually received managers with little knowledge and will let you go if you are not in their "clique". Managers come and go and often bring in their favorites pushing others out.

    Advice to Management

    Please follow your own policies in regards to management. Regional should do surprise visits to properties and not tell their managers they are coming.This is stated in the policy for regional managers. This just provides a false impression of what really is happening at the properties, and does nothing but pad the regional butts to their upper management in reporting that their properties are performing as they should. Also regional managers need to be tested on their own knowledge. They also need to learn how to spell. Communication is important and how can you garner respect typing incomplete sentences. Its insulting. Get rid of the "cliques". The property managers and regional managers go out to drink all the time with their employees and when those not in that group complain about performance of others in that group you get kicked out. I have seen excellent employees that care nothing but performing for Bell Partners get fired, only for Bell to retain the poor performers that are there only for the paycheck.

    Pros

    Really great company to work for. Good work life balance. Lots of upward mobility. I was sad to have to leave the company due to an out of state move.

    Cons

    Not many cons to be said here.

    Advice to Management

    Instituting annual reviews with employees on how their managers are doing. It would create a more open, honest, and unified team within on-site offices.
