Can be stressful at times

Community Manager (Current Employee)

ProsGreat benefits, 20% off rent for any employee, 60-100% off for upper level management/maintenance, good people, corporate office will know your name, chance to dabble in multiple areas including marketing, finance, and sales

ConsManagers on salary will have to put in long days to get ahead, micro management with numerous spreadsheets tracking your numbers daily, monthly, and yearly, investor owned so sometimes it seems like all that matters is the bottom line, living on site can be stressful depending on property, always short staffed with no plans to change, podded communities add to lower levels of customer service because staff is spread thin

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate better live work balance, we get a lot of vacation time but cant take it, hire more floaters to be available to cover sick days, vacation, etc or just have more people in the office all together, stop throwing so many reports at the managers so they can't do their regular day to day job without working OT

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
