Constant Micromanaging and Incompetent Managers

Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) Rockland, NY

Pros401K, Health Insurance.....that's about it.

ConsLow Pay for the amount of work that is done. Managers take all the praise and recognition for the hard work of leasing consultants. Leasing Consultants are expected to do everything and managers frequently delegate their tasks to the consultants. No room to grow unless you suck up and play nasty office politics. Very hostile work enviroment and main focus is on survey scores instead. Mind-numbingly boring and very slow paced. If you are looking for a boring, dead end job, then this is the perfect place for you!

Advice to Senior ManagementLive up to the promises you make your employes about growth within the company or be honest with them and tell them the only way to move up is to suck up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
