OK company

Property Manager (Former Employee)
Lansing, MI

I worked at Empirian Property Management full-time for more than a year

ProsJewish owned, which means lots of days off in September.
Room to grow (see cons)
Decent pay for work/position.

ConsDepending on the district you're in, promotions and raises can be based on your 'buddy' level with your supervisor.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't allow the management to get so personal with employees. It is one thing to have company outings, it is another thing to have binge drinking events with employees.

I believe I would of been more satisfied at a minimum wage burger joint.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Richmond, IN

I worked at Empirian Property Management

ProsGreat pay, ample vacation time

ConsMore than they'll probably give me room to type here but...Poor district management, poor communication skills across the board, can never get parts even during an emergency, company expects you to shell out money to buy supplies and parts, denied several times for personal time for family emergencies, denied vacation time for lackluster reasoning, vendors never get paid, upper management treats lower management and field workers less than poorly, the company expects one person to do the work of two with no benifits, the company believes that they come first no matter what and it doesn't matter if it's your family, friends, or even your own health and safety...overall, if I had to suggest a place to work for someone who wasn't desperate. EPM would be the last company I would ever want them to work for. Oh, and lets not forget that I've never had a job that doesn't allow you to contact the corporate office to straighten out issues and actually threaten termination for doing so

Advice to Senior ManagementAfter the property management positions. I believe they should restructure and make new or current district and regional management take customer service classes to better treat lower employees and residents because as told by several residents on our properties. They don't make you feel welcomed when you have a problem and they surely don't treat their field employees the way they deserve. It's a show respect but don't get respect sort of scenerio for field employees.

Overall a good job.

Property Manager (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

I have been working at Empirian Property Management

ProsAutonomy and the ability to make your own decisions. Love being able to improve the property and keep / make residents happy.

ConsLimited budget, aging property. Some difficulty getting approval for capital improvement.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the cutesy "contests" and "training" which seems out of touch with the field. Put your effort and money into pay, benefits, and property improvements.

ProsGreat District Managers who truly care about the field staff.

Company confusion

Property Manager (Current Employee)
Reynoldsburg, OH

I have been working at Empirian Property Management

Pros30 days paid vacation is great!

ConsNew company still has to work out the "bugs". The owners don't have a clue about Property Management and make ill logical decisions by trying to micro manage over 300 properties.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe PO System isn't property friendly; In an emergency the resident is the one who suffers and that leads to a bad name for management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

This company is having major financial problems, which makes keeping a positive attitude very difficult!

Property Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Empirian Property Management

ProsSince the company is having financial problems, no one is "breathing down your neck" to perform "miracles".
If I have a Resident complaint, and am following policy, my Supervisor backs me. Which is very important to me.

ConsAs mentioned before, keeping a positive attitude is very difficult, and upper management does not want to hear you have a bad day!

It is extremely difficult to keep a property at it's best when just getting basic supplies, such as paint, a hot water tank or just a garbage disposal may take weeks.

Residents were used to receiving great "perks" for renewing their lease. Now, rents keep increasing regardless of the condition of their apartment or the property.

Because the company needs money, there are high late fees, transfer fees etc, that are never "waived", even for a long term Resident with a good history.

Managers are left to deal with irate businesses waiting to get paid. We can not give them a phone number to call, we can't answer when payment might be made, and have no control because we have no budget. As a result, we lose vendors and are left on our own to deal with some major issues.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the upper management seems very out of touch with what is really going on at the property level. It would be helpful if EPM would have a face to face meeting with employees. I do not appreciate being "fed to the lions" regarding unpaid bills, open work requests or the condition of the property. If I vent to my Supervisor, she comments on my attitude!

Pay attention to long term employees! The "bonus" programs are bogus! Re-institute the "floating holiday" for an anniversary, appreciate more of the small steps a property makes! This is a very difficult job now!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
