100% of the CEO
Thomas H. Lowder
Pros – Great pay
ability to use your skills and talents to your best ability
promote from within
large company with other properties close for assistance
they move you around until they find your best fit
They are willing to put their money back into older properties
The upper management is fantastic
the help desk and online corporate support system is very impressive
They are trying to stay up with the times and continually update technology and programs
Cons – They really don't give a large amount of training, they rely more on the throw you in there and see if you swim method (although if you start to sink then more attention is given)
Biggest con that I've noticed is that it seems like the purposely understaff their properties. We have just enough people to barely squeak by on what is needed and mine is not the only property with that problem
mediocre benefits (really expensive short term disability that the employee completely has to pay for, more affordable long term disability that the employee completely has to pay for, no 401K match, leasing staff isn't paid for extra hours on weekend shifts the way some companies do)
OPEN SUNDAYS so on 2 person properties it is hard to make everyone happy
I've had a difficult time working with my manager to get reasonable time off for family emergencies (for example, a death) but that is singular for my property and the other employees at other local properties pitched in to give me the time off that my manager wouldn't
Advice to Senior Management – Upping the benefits and changing the 1 person per 100 units standard will go a long way to making Colonial a top place to work, at least in my city!
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
