    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    Outdated accounting and communications between departments and employees.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.

    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.

    If there was one thing to consider changing is to get better and more up to date systems to work with.

    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.

    Too many meetings where people had great ideas but no work ethic to back up those "great ideas"!

    Former Employee - Call Center Manager  in  Orlando, FL
    Former Employee - Call Center Manager in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Equity LifeStyle Properties

    Pros

    A lot of money to throw around if you know the right people. In day to day work you are dealing with people who are vacationing at your resort so most of the time they are friendly and upbeat.

    Cons

    Poor implementation of ideas within the company. Many resort managers had complaints dealing within the resort properties themselves. Plus their corporate office was a nightmare if you ever had to get anything done... call.. leave a message (because they are rarely at their desk).. wait at least three days... then start the long awaited process of action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication all the way around.

    Pros

    None unless you want to consider the location of the offices.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities limited, outdated systems, unqualified new staff, if it is not broke don't fix it approach by Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management's view on workload, new hires, exisiting employees, retention of key employees, and systems needs to be evaluated.

    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time

    Pros

    you get to help seniors

    Cons

    Managers are not chosen by qualifications they are chosen by "friendships" and when that happens the managers dont really care about the employees just that they look good to their "friends"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you might not be there to make friends but it would be nice if you at least were nice to your employees -- believe me we all know you talk about us negatively to others dont be fooled about the people that say they are your friends because in reality there you have no friends
