I worked at Equity Residential

Pros

You need to be a person with a strong work ethic because we work hard everyday. The pay off for your hard work is excellent benefits, salary and a great work environment. Senior mgmt really cares about their employees. It's a true team spirit with everyone working for the same goal.

Cons

The initiatives always change. You finally get a new one down and you Bono and they changed what they want. The changes take some getting used to but once you get in the grove a d go with he flow you see there is a great strategy behind it all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what your doing. It's working.

    Pros

    Benefits, annual activities, Having a steady job, housing discount

    Cons

    No real employee engagement endeavors, even though there is an annual employee engagement survey (such a joke). It seems as though Equity does not care if they lose their best workers, everyone is replaceable. No consideration is given to how decisions will affect employees, the only focus is the bottom line. Most people are overworked. If someone quits or gets fired, they take forever to replace that person and only if they absolutely have to. But in the meantime you will be given hell about audit compliance and metrics when you are just trying to stay afloat. Anything can change at any moment about your job requirement, compensation, job title, etc. I would suggest Equity being a last resort, or a temporary gig until you find something better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest doing some research on how to actually engage your employees and what effect it could have on the bottom line. Treat your employees better! Hire an outside consultant to really investigate how decisions that have been made have effected your employees. At least act like you care instead of sitting there getting richer and richer in Chicago.

    Pros

    Equity is up to date on technological advances and going green-electronic leases, application process etc. They spend the money to keep properties looking great. They have extremely high standards for their employees and properties which keep everyone looking sharp. Great managers and employees. They are very good at recognizing their top performers in the field.

    Cons

    Managers stay with Equity a very long time leaving few positions for other employees to grow into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to undervalue the importance of room for career advancement in the DRIVE criteria
