    Former Employee - Registration & Store Clerk in East Stroudsburg, PA

    I worked at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time for more than a year

    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

    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

    Pros

    A measly paycheck. Work here if you like to be exploited and are immoral.

    Cons

    The management and corporate environment foster ill will amongst most of the people who rent space or rent a property. They exploit Senior citizens, outrageous prices, rude manager that drives a Lexus and good luck with maintenance. It takes months to get anything done and then its rigged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider Customer Service not GREED!!!!!!

    Pros

    The particular branch I worked at was a calm environment great team to work for. Corporate staff is not easy to work with.

    Cons

    Its a Corp. They will run you in the ground with no reward if you let them. All staff at my office had worked hard for over a year and a half and no one had received a raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    at least acknowledge your staff is doing a good job.

    Pros

    The company has decent wages and PTO.

    Cons

    I have to agree with previous poster, where do you start? Commission was once great, it's no2 being taken away in large part. The upper management doesn't care one bit about people at the community level. They can't even acknowledge the holidays even though they are lavishing themselves parties and events. They do not know from one week to the next if they are sale or rentals, or sales...uughh. You cannot offer an opinion to anyone higher than you because they don't believe you are as intelligent as they are. The CEO must be blind. Our region is clearly in dirty dealings and it's obvious to everyone around. You don't dare make your concerns known since the person responsible clearly lets you know that you can be dismissed at any time. The best way to get promoted is by kissing up to the right people. Merit means nothing to these people. They have mediocre health care at best and if you are less than a manager you have even less insurance. They grandstand about all their purchases and how much those cost but do nothing for the people who work hardest to provide the company with that money. They cannot see anything long term. They are only worried about presenting the monthly numbers to the stockholders. Someone should investigate some of the obvious bad deals they continue to do with the same companies. Looks like someone is probably getting a large kickback. No person in their right mind would continue to have the company getting ripped off unless their hands were dirty.

    I would say I have hit all points but there simply isn't enough time. Unless you have nothing better on the horizon, don't work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ms. Nader needs to see that the problems that are blamed on the community managers go much higher. They are being thrown under the bus to take the attention off of the real crooks you have working for you.

    Because they are always changing things you get to learn many programs.

    Cons

    Nobody knows what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have an employee that is good at something let them do it if it is the best interest of the company. Get new HR people that know all the laws.

    Pros

    Good vacation/sick days. Great commissions. The best part of my job has nothing to do with they company but the job itself & being able to assist residents.

    Cons

    Watching management misuse company property, assests, staff & the unfair treatment of residents & vendors based on race. Management is only concerned with NUMBERS, NUMBER$, NUMBERS!! Of course i mean occupancy numbers. Poor customer relations, once residents move in they're ignored. Management actually purposely avoids residents & corporate doesn't respond to complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your managers/employees ELS. They're stealing right under your noses. Be available to all employees & not just upper management.
