    I worked at Dolben Company

    Pros

    Bozzuto cares about their employees. They are more like family than coworkers. I enjoyed my time with the company and left for personal reasons.

    Cons

    Couldn't afford to live on property even with discount. Pay was decent but the prices were way to much to pay and still live comfortably.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and give employees better deals on living arrangements.

    I worked at Dolben Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good training and training programs available to staff.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up in the company. Headquarters did not seem to have a good handle on what was really going on "in the field". Lots of holiday and weekend hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more staff to even out holiday/weekend hours and stress on current employees. Get out there and meet your employees- not just the ones who have been with the company over 5 years!

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits and possibilities to move.

    Cons

    Community Manager was out of touch, we were not providing a quality product to residents. Very political and family run, so if you end up on the wrong side of certain people, you might as well start looking for a new job. They throw you under the bus so much, I thought I was working at the MBTA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never jeopardize what you have spent years building. Also just because someone says something, that is not the way it always is.

    I worked at Dolben Company

    Pros

    Th Dolben Co. is very well respected in multi-family industry. Their committment to the industry is evidenced by their involvement in the National Apartment Assoc. I was very proud to say that I was employed by The Dolben Co.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities can be limited based on market conditions. Their growth plan is slow and steady and as a result, you may be in the same position for several years before the right opportunity presents itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!
