Pros

Stable company with respectable core values.

Cons

The integrity of middle management is a joke, they are a corrupt and self-serving group of people. Threats are used to keep people below them from speaking up.

Advice to Management

Upper management needs to take an unbiased look at middle management and be prepared to act on the what they find.

    Pros

    medical coverage
    401k
    sick time , flex time , vacation time
    training
    sales experience

    Cons

    1)Cleaning vacant apartments and cleaning move in ready apartments
    2) There is plently of seniority / podded communities and hardly any growth potential.
    3) the company implements new formats on how to get things done all the time -thus you are memorizing all the new ways of going about your day and as soon as you get it - guess what - there is another way of doing the same job.

    Advice to Management

    Focusing on marketing is great but it would also be great for them to implement a solid internal structure starting from the maintenance team up to the community managers.

  2. Pretty good

    Pros

    Very good company, has a lot of benefits for its employees, good perks, health plan, 401 etc. Has great opportunity to move up within the company as they look at their current employees to fill positions with before hiring an outsider. Compensation is also good comparing with similar employers.

    Cons

    The only thing i can complain about would be lack of common sense with some co-workers. Time off also could be a little higher than 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, realistic, be simple. Do not bother everyone about the smallest things that happen at work. Also respect lunch time!
