    Pros

    Upper Management are amazing. love the people and the holiday parties. Good pay and good benefits

    Cons

    The current staff when I was there used to called out every other day and no one got a warning or nothing and this used to create a massive load of work for the responsible people.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and working hours.

    Cons

    Incompetent and somewhat lazy HR Department. Middle and Upper management not the best either.
    A lot of favoritism and unfairness. Very high turnover.
    Heavy workloads and low salaries (below average for any given position).
    Accounting and insurance departments very dysfunctional.
    Ancient and inadequate technology systems.
    Benefits package not good. The health benefit plan had such a high premium and high deductible that some employees went uninsured as coverage was unaffordable when paired with the low salaries.
    Not much opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    On Fridays during the summer, the workday ends at 2:00 PM. Vacation time is accrued as is personal time. Very friendly Human Resource staff.

    Cons

    Not enough staff to cover the amount of buildings involved. Senior management undertrained and unwilling to train new hires. Unable to keep competent help, workers comming and going every week.

    Pros

    fun people, flexible schedules, fair pay, managers arent bossy.

    Cons

    Main Office is a mess and has no idea whats going on, Accounting is an absolute joke, kinda feels like a telemarketing firm, no chance for advancement if you are a woman

    Advice to Management

    Think about the matriarchal vibe of this company. I feel that you all take advantage of very skilled and knowledgeable female staff members and exploit them for their prevent alot of miscommunication and confusion. Update so tenants can actually use the website, outdated and ugly. Bonuses, duh. FIX YOUR ACCOUNTING DEPT ITS ABSURD. Support your employers.

    The company did really take the time to explain my job duties. There wasn't much opportunity for advancement with the position they created for me.

    Advice to Management

    Would work more one on one with employees to ensure the understand their responsibilities

    Pros

    Team structure, open-door policy, promotion from within

    Cons

    Difficult to get a raise, no bonuses, very few morale-boosting activities outside of the workplace

    Advice to Management

    More team meetings, better communication, and a more hands-on approach could help to create a better work environment for employees.

    Pros

    *The cafeteria downstairs is pretty good
    *The people you work with are very nice...NOT MGMT
    *At least everyone is miserable together

    Cons

    *Management is clueless
    *If someone is laid off, instead of hiring someone else you have to take their work load with no further compensation
    *You are overwhelmed with work for a horrible salary
    *For a company that claims to be recession-proof...they take advantage of the fact that we have a bad economy and pay you way less than the market
    *Just a terrible place to work

    Advice to Management

    Resign!
