    Solid company to work for with a great name industry, but pay doesn't seem to reflect the work expectation.

    I have been working at Merit Property Management

    Pros

    Good people to work with and a fun industry. Ability to learn a number of job functions and take on a lot of responsibility managing a number of properties. Steady work/Job Security.

    Cons

    Kind of seems like a revolving door for lower level employees. Lots of transition as the hours sometimes don't match the pay. Often there are transitions and team members are expected to take on additional workload that can cause late nights in the office and this goes unrewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep track of the employees that go above and beyond and consider a better rewarding program. It's hard for employees to consistently put in extra hours and feel like it's going unnoticed.

    I worked at Merit Property Management

    Pros

    Nice building. Centrally located in San Ramon.

    Cons

    This place is full of erratic Managers with impulsive mood changes. One after another (6 that I can remember). They would all become manic, temperamental and unapproachable, picking their favorites and looking down on others. Bad behavior was condoned so tantrums in the hall, door slamming, or snotty office sessions were a common occurrence.

    There was no sense of camaraderie in that office. No sense of team work. Everyone's doors were closed. You were always much to busy as the company witnesses your success with 4 properties, so they unload 2 more on you to get their moneys worth out of you. Eventually when you start sinking under the mass amounts of Pressure, you are told that if you can't keep up they will get rid of you. Considering each property is like running a business, you are continually dealing with upset homeowners, Narcissistic-Nasty board members. That plus the Office Morale is enough to finish you off.

    Most employees are either fired for political reasons or end up leaving because they are having health issues from all the stress. The turnover was about 90% in the 6 years that I worked in the San Ramon office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since there was no H.R in the San Ramon office, employee "issues" were handled by the main office down in Aliso Viejo. Consistent problems continued after HR was alerted of problems in the Office. After 6 Managers, you would think they would investigate the things going on and address them. Instead the endless circle of Pandemonium continues.
