I work as an assistant manager at an apartment complex

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsThe company provides a lot of corporate support to ensure that its employees are able to succeed in their positions. The company shows that it values its employees through great benefits (ie medical, 401k, dry cleaning/milage/rent allowances, ETO)

ConsSalaries are generous for the property management industry, but overall this is an underpaid industry.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management is great, I love this company. However, the company (and industry as a whole) would benefit from a more skilled/educated workforce, but they are unable to offer the wages to obtain that kind of quality.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a bad company to work for, but there are a few flaws.

    Leasing (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Essex Property Trust


    Pros: -Decent pay/commission based compensation structure. -Some flexibility with time off. If you need to take vacation you can ask employees from sister properties to cover for… Cons: They overwork employees. There is not enough staff. I refuse to believe they can't find people to hire. They just milk their employees and expect… Advice to Senior Management: Stop raising rents obnoxiously! Tenants leave and then we have apartments stay vacant for months, suffer vacancy loss, only to reduce the rate and rent… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
