    Current Employee - Asset Manager in Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Asset Manager in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Philadelphia Housing Authority full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pros are autonomy, your own office, parking space, great medical, vision & dental benefits; paid time-off, paid holidays, paid sick-time, meet a lot of nice residents, Coworkers are very helpful !!

    Cons

    As an Asset Manager (also known as a Site Manager) you are accountable for every aspect of the property/site. From Rent Collection, Purchasing of office supplies, to dealing with tenant's personal problems. The problem is, Upper Management does not provide adequate training or support, you are forced to learn on your own. Hopefully things will change soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide adequate training for new Managers, support them in times of need (as far as learning and enforcing new policies), and get out of the old era of "every man for himself". We all need help at one point, it would be great if we could actually get it.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Housing Authority full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company has a good benefits package, decent salary, and perfect opportunity for an employee who is looking to manage properties.

    Cons

    Upper management is indecisive when it omes to decision making. There is an extreme lack of communication between departments. Upper management cares more about the numbers instead of having satisfied employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A happy employee is productive employee. And no matter which way you slice it you can not keep up with the demand of the cliients with less help in the offices and in the field.
