Former Employee - Residential On-site

I worked at Douglas Emmett full-time (more than a year)

Pros

OK salary and good health benefit package.

Cons

This primarily commercial property management company does not know how to effectively manage, and/or assist, their residential employees to achieve success. When a supervisor was advised training was necessary, the supervisor replied, "If you want training, you're working for the wrong company".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn that residential management has far more challenges for the on-site staff than commercial management.

    Pros

    Worked in the Corporate Office in Santa Monica. Who doesn't love the beach?
    Close proximity to a lot of great dining options and after hours activities.
    Well known high end brand in Southern California.
    Growth opportunities if you follow the company culture.

    Cons

    If you don't already live near Santa Monica, the commute to work is something out of a horror story.
    Below industry average for pay
    Their was a lot of resentment towards upper management and it polluted the mindset of many of the people working their, especially less tenured employees.
    Strict adherence to the bottom line, sometimes at the cost of employees.
    High turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and hear out employee reviews of the company.
    Offer competitive salaries to retain talent.
