    Pros

    + Employee centric: At Carmel Partners, I always felt genuinely valued by upper management. They show interest in my personal and professional well-being and that of my team.
    + Lean staff: I'm listing this as both a con and pro because it also produces high performers.
    + Customer Service: They mean it when they say residents come first. Residents are a priority and their feedback is highly valued. Upper management always seeks at least a compromise in addressing resident grievances instead of citing lease clauses and policy.
    + Culture: Most Carmel employees I have met really embody the core values of the organization. By investing in its employees and supporting them, Carmel develops employee loyalty towards the company. Most employees seem dedicated and ascribe to high standards of performance and professional decorum.
    + Open door policy: Managers want to hear what employees have to say and seek employee feedback.
    + Compensation: Very fair.
    + Empowering: Since the company is a little on the small side, employees are able to launch initiatives which are well received by upper management.

    Cons

    - Lean staff: It becomes important to staff with the industry's best because volume of activity can be overwhelming at times.
    - Growth: Portfolios are still small so growth can seem limited for those seeking a larger scope of responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Great management model.
    * Putting employees first is key which the company seems to understand.
    * Track employee retention/turnover for Community Managers and Regional Managers and use this as a performance benchmark. Managers should be held accountable for turnovers at their property. They should also be rewarded for retaining and promoting their staff. It's the hallmark of a good manager.

    One suggestion: Identify your strongest "players" and make sure that their professional growth is tracked. The best employees also need inspirational mentorship so that they can be groomed into future leaders. For example, maybe they can obtain professional certification relevant to the industry. Promotional opportunities may be limited at this time but professional growth is always possible through seminars and trainings. Don't rely on the employees to do it for themselves - just send them!

    Overall: I would highly recommend Carmel to anyone worth their salt! Truly a GREAT company to work for.

    Pros

    Carmel Partners is dedicated to providing the best quality housing and service they can and uses their resources to make sure it happens. As a Manager for the company I find I have continued support from not only an operations side but also with finances and needing to spend money when it needs to be spent. At Carmel I am surrounded by others that care about doing the right thing, whether it is for our Residents, our Employees and Investors. This comes from the top of the company and is carried throughout the organization. Carmel is innovative in many ways- Health and Wellness, Property Improvements, Green Initiatives and more. Carmel has recently expanded it's training program, and this is exciting for all the employees.

    Cons

    Honestly, I feel so good after writing the Pros, I really can't think of any Cons! I love my job, I love my co-workers, and I love our leaders. It's Great!!! I know some of my employees feel there is not enough career growth opportunity, and I see that on another review here, but I have to say part of that is because we are in Hawaii (people stay in jobs here much longer than on the Mainland), and the other part is because everyone loves working for Carmel and they don't want to leave! I strive every day to help my employees grow regardless and Carmel fully supports personal and professional growth as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!! I worked for a large REIT on the mainland, and the personal touch Carmel has even though they are growing larger every day is really special!
