    Former Employee - Maintenance Supervisor in Toledo, OH

    I worked at Empirian Property Management full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There were not really any pros except for the residents that lived there and you had to take care of. The relationships with some of the residents was the best the job had to offer, some residents though you just could not please but you get that with any property management position.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Low wages... not being able to order parts to repair or replace broken or worn out items as we had not paid our bill with the supplier... having outstanding balances to vendors that we used for outsideservices such as snowplowing, painting, carpet cleaning, lawn maintenance and the vendors cutting us off due to it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be hard on your managers and lower staff as we are in font of the residents and vendors when you come in for a day and then take off not to be seen for a few weeks later when you make your once a month visit.

    The owners of this comapny must skim money off as we were told we would be getting capital money to improve things and we would bring in large amounts every month but it never made it back to us for improvements.

    Former Employee - Property Manager in Lansing, MI

    I worked at Empirian Property Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don'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 worked at Empirian Property Management

    Pros

    Great pay, ample vacation time

    Cons

    More 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 ManagementAdvice

    After 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.

    Great District Managers who truly care about the field staff.

    Leadership very poor from Empirian. Vendors not getting paid. Cutting hours across the portfolio to 35 hours per week.

    Pay your bills on time. You will save money in the long run. Don't blame your field staff for economic problems.

    Pros

    30 days paid vacation is great!

    Cons

    New 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.
