    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time

    Pros

    Great morale and hours. Respectful company with values. I have to disagree with most on here, point the finger in the mirror and let's talk shop. I appreciate the pay increases and feel valued to be a part of the team.

    Cons

    Outdated accounting and communications between departments and employees. There are no long term concrete plans to move around staffing. Reward those by moving to preferred destinations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on the policy and provide a standard training program for other employees.

    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My direct supervisor and VP were wonderful to work for. They offered great support. They allowed me to determine my own methods for completing various duties. They sought out and truly valued my feedback. I was able to work with Regional Managers and Vice Presidents on a daily basis and was often included in important decision making. I left due to family medical issues. I wish I could have stayed with the company. The company is growing and offers opportunities for personal growth and professional growth.

    Cons

    The only con is the medical insurance. It may have changed by now, but it was a high deductible plan with a high monthly premium.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I loved the changes the company was implementing. Continue to do what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great seasonal opportunities in many areas of experience. Meet great people to work with and visitors. Few permanent, year round career opportunities.

    Cons

    Low pay for company expectations, therefore you are working with some individuals with questionable work ethics, this can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a competitive wage to workers, both camp workers and local residents.

    Pros

    The majority of the rank and file here are really down to earth.

    Cons

    When upper Management was notified of a mean and bullying mid manager - it was swept under the carpet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DON'T ask a department head to review policies and have staff fill out a questionnaire that involves that department head directly...someone from HR SHOULD be conducting this meeting and collecting the questionnaires!!!

    Pros

    Properties have wonderful value and benefits for residents

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea how degrading and intimidating the RM behaves. The RM actually degrades VP and Corporate to management team while boasting she is the only one in Corporate that knows how to do things. Very sad to see her boast on how she can fire you at any moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review privately with your onsite management team and allow concerns to be voiced without retaliation. If not the RM will continue to assist you in losing valuable managers.
