Worst Company I've Ever Worked For

Community Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat commission structure ~ until it was cut. For some, in half. Enjoy my co-workers.

ConsImpossible to name them all. I am continually shocked that ELS is a publicly traded company, and a successful one, at that. It's a testament to how hard the employees work. No systems in place for inventory. The entire company runs on Google docs, as it's too cheap to invest in quality systems. When I started, the email platform was Lotus Notes. Hello, 1979. IT is a joke. Regional VPs micromanage to death, new policies and procedures are introduced daily, but are never thought out long-term. This results in someone figuring out they don't work and replacing them with new ones that were also not thought-out. It's a vicious cycle. The health "insurance" is a joke. I pay $200 per month for a $2k deductible ~ for a single person. I cannot wait to land a new job and tell this company to get bent.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis isn't worth my time. Do yourself a favor: If you don't work here yet, don't bother. If you do, find a new job pronto.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Properties have wonderful value and benefits for residents Cons: Upper management has no idea how degrading and intimidating the RM behaves. The RM actually degrades VP and Corporate to management team while boasting… Advice to Senior Management: Review privately with your onsite management team and allow concerns to be voiced without… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
