I have been working at Equity Residential

Pros

I agree with the fair/balanced reviews already written here (you can tell the people with an ax to rind so to speak). Your coworkers really determine your enjoyment and success. All this being said, many of the issues mentioned in these reviews are found in any major corporation regardless of industry. Compared to other Property Management companies I'm familiar with, Equity is by far the best and the only PM company I will work for.

Cons

I've worked for the company for over 7 years and there has always been this unspoken "inner circle" you seem to need entrance into in order to be promoted. The company constantly changes its focus, policies and procedures; and there is a continued disconnect between between corporate employees and field employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop micromanaging. All the reports, graphs, spreadsheets, scores and ratings are MADDENING. Your sales staff is focused more on meeting whatever new metric has been rolled out than listening to what the customer wants/needs.

    Pros

    Transfer within properties around the country

    Cons

    Work hard as a slave with a strong pressure from upper management
    CLS score is all it matters, numbers
    Don't care about how hard you've worked if they don't need you anymore they put you on the streets
    Make you do work that is not under your job description
    If Regional doesn't like you anymore for something you did she will put you out without giving you her face.
    They only promote friends
    Stress kill you with this company. Almost all employees smoke due to that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have lost employees that really cared about your company and properties.
    Employee turn over is the highest in the nation. Just ask one question. Why?
