    Pros

    Amazing residents, decent work life balance

    Cons

    The bottom line is that if you aren't blonde/brunette or the "token", you won't move up in the company. They would rather hire a person off the street with little to no experience because they have the "look" (I mean, because the client wants them) verses the employees who have the educational backing and experience within. The prejudice in the Fayetteville region is a few EEO suits waiting to happen. An example: my manager sat me down to tell me how she disagrees with whites dating blacks... awkward and she had the wrong audience for sure. When I requested a private meeting with my regional, she refused and brushed away my concerns. From 2012 to 2014, they lost approximately 5/9 properties in Fayetteville, so that tells you where the company is headed. Also when they lose properties, you'll basically be laid off if the new company doesn't pick you up and if Drucker won't "find" a spot for you" (that's if they don't successfully convince you to submit notice to leave.... ha!). Crime in Fayetteville has gotten bad, but this company could care less to come up with timely solutions to help keep the neighborhoods safes... simple ones like investing in a guard.... but they will sure want you to renew your lease when it's up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within and figure out what your values are/should be in 2015. Take time to invest training into everyone, not just your hand selected managers. Bridge the "discriminatory gap" between who the client wants to run their property and who the company knows is best suited to run the company. Mandate the mystery shops for everyone and those individuals who are not scoring even in the 80th percentile certainly shouldn't be moving up let alone managing. Ensure that all of your managers complete the fair housing training and abide by it because there were many violations taking place during my time. Look at your losses and decide whether the regionals are putting their all into your properties. Losing 5 properties and seeing numerous employees laid off surely isn't a good outlook to someone wanting to make a career with your company, I imagine that it can't be what's best for business. Revamp Drucker and Falk because it has potential, you just need compassionate and caring individuals regardless of appearance.

    Pros

    Decent salary and bonus structure, sends corporate rep to train you on site, very organized, company believes in work/life balance.

    Cons

    This company is great so far so I have none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to have corporate train onsite staff...this was very helpful! Company is very structured and organized which is always a good thing in my opinion. This company will make sure that you feel comfortable and confident in your position and that is certainly appreciated.

    Pros

    Work to life balance was reasonable. Better than not having a job at all. The name carries weight in the property management industry - for now.

    Cons

    Poor management on the regional level. Uses employees as pawns. Promotions were hand picked based on likeness. Compensations/bonuses were retracted offers. Borderline prejudice and bias in their staff management. No employee training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should revisit their values and actually implement a concrete training program. This would prevent possible legal issues between employees and management on many levels.

    I have been working at Drucker & Falk full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation is fair and the site staff are great to work with.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no training offered with this company. Upper management is scarce, there is no oversight. Overall, extremely disorganized and very old fashioned company that in the long run gets nothing done. This causes a very frustrating work environment. Additionally, it is incredibly difficult to find a work-life balance due to under staffing and budget cutting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more involved with your communities. Develop training for your employees, as well as a bonus program.

    Pros

    Enjoyed co-workers and residents. Local Marketing employee worked diligently and was a great asset to the company.

    Cons

    No support for out of town market. Company seems to have a huge valley between home office support and people actually in the field making money for them. Also, living in the dark ages as far as technology and day to day activities.

    I worked at Drucker & Falk part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay rates are fair.
    D&F is a stable company that offers employment in many areas of the local and surrounding areas.

    Cons

    I used to feel that D&F was a family oriented organization, but as the way of all big companies, this has changed dramatically. I watched many an individual leave in a short period of time due to being overworked, overstressed and underappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take into consideration your dedicated office staff. These folks run your organization. If you made people feel valued, you may find more employees stick around.

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, community staff, well cared for communities and a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    They spend too much time letting the indians call the shots and not enough time letting the chiefs call the shots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your upper management executives to make effective change and let go of the reins.

    Pros

    Low expectations and lower salaries

    Cons

    Mom and Pop organization with NO leadership and ZERO foresight into what multi-family property management is really about. They are more concerned with surface appeal rather than actual results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sale or merge
