Sound foundation

Assistant Property Manager (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

ProsOutstanding benefits package and close-knit relationships with co-workers. Many of the senior staff has been with the company for 10+ years, which results in a family-type atmosphere.

ConsSometime there is a lack of direction from upper management on what is a priority.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more forthcoming and expect the same level of excellence from yourself that you demand from subordinates

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
