    This is a very disorganized company with horrible compensation. Management stinks and they look to turn your deals down.

    Pros

    It's a very fun place to work! We get to throw great parties for residents, the staff is great, the residents are very kind and nice to be around. It's a great place to work if you are starting out in the work force again. I've been sent to a few great training seminars, learned new programs to use on my resume, and have a great start to my resume. (Been a stay at home mom for 7 years prior)

    Cons

    They tell you starting out there are no raises. This is how you get high turnover and lose great employees. They should at least give small raises every now and then. There is no health insurance, 401K etc, except for higher up employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a reason to stay with this company. It really is a great company with friendly people and a good atmosphere. I hate to leave but cannot stay if I will never get even a small raise. Who would??!!!

    Pros

    Cal-Am Properties is with out any doubt the best company I have worked for in property management. They are always supportive and provide me as the property manager, with the tools necessary to be a successful property. It is refreshing to have that kind of support.

    I really do not have any!

    Pros

    They differently offer good benefits and a good starting salary. You start off by feeling that you are working for a great company.and in time you find out the truth.

    Cons

    They are not a not very honest company. They love to micro manages the communities. This results in "everything comes from California" which causes many problems. They keep saying they are the best in the industry. This might be true for the number of communities they manage but not their integrity or respect for employees/community members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your growth of upper staff was during the real estate boom and now you they are in place and have very little idea how to run this company in today's world. Sad, really !
    Middle management is very scared of upper management. NO WAY TO RUN A COMPANY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more employee oriented, everybody is doing an excellent job.Don't change policies midstream, give something a chance to work. Don't have blinders on and listen only to one side.You might be able to gain some trust and have some long terme employees
