How I can make the next 10 years better than the first 10 years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is an honor for me to work for such a great company as Essex. I want to thank Glass door for providing this format because I can now publicly thank the upper management at Essex Property Trust for providing me personally, with 10 wonderful years of work life! Essex has provided me with many opportunities over the years. Essex teaches me daily what it takes to be the best in this business. I have grown with Essex in these 10 years and am grateful for everything they do for me as an employee. As Essex grows and makes changes in a positive direction, the upper management has taken the time to ask employees at every level how they can make their jobs easier. You do not come across a company like this very often.
Essex Property Trust, lead by their upper management, has embraced ever changing new technology and has delivered many innovative programs and initiatives in a short amount of time.
In my tenure, I have worked with many of the same Regional Staff for over 7 years. I have seen the Regional Portfolio manager that hired me promoted to Vice President, I have sat with many executives in a free and comfortable environment to speak my mind. I have had the opportunity to tell my CEO what works and what does not – many will ask how that is possible…it is because he asked me for my feedback. Essex Property Trust and their management at all levels, cares about their employees and they know more than anything that is takes the village to raise the child. This company would not be here for 41 years without smart and practical business decisions at all management levels.
Respect is not handed out without merit - it is earned, so I urge current and past employees that are unhappy to look within themselves for answers. Every employee starts Essex with the same opportunities, what they do with those opportunities are completely up to them! I took my opportunities by the horns and have been riding them for 10 years now. I cannot wait to see what the next 10 years has in store for me!

Sincerely,
 A very happy Essex Employee
Keep making the strides you are - it is awesome to watch the evolution

    Pros

    I feel Essex is a wonderful place to work and the people employed here are amazing!!! :) Every holiday is great, especially @ Christmas - we have some of the kindest people working here.

    Since being employed with Essex the upper management has given me the opportunity to learn and add to my property management knowledge. Essex always has opportunity for growth and the line of communication is always an open door policy.

    I would recommend this company to family, friends and even when I am in line at a retail store, a bank, or at a restaurant I am always looking to give our business card to people with great customer service skills and the potential to be a great property management employee.

    This is a company we can trust.

    Cons

    I do not have anything negative to say!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work you are all extraordinary individuals.. :) and I look forward to being here for many, many years to come.. :)

    Pros

    The 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)

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper 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.
