    I have been working at FPI Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good training
    - My direct colleagues were fantastic
    - Well-known company
    - My property owners were okay.

    Cons

    - no recognition for a job well done.
    -have to deal with rude, pissed off residents on a daily basis
    - jerked around and lied to about trying to get anywhere in the company
    - corporate is SO out of touch with what each individual properties needs are. They think that they can make
        decisions from behind a desk without stepping foot on the property.
    - Promotions are definitely based on who you know and not what you know.
    - Work weekends and holidays
    - No raises- EVER!
    - No work-life balance if you live on-site. You will have residents bugging you at all times of the day/night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more power in the hands of on-site staff and less in the hands of corporate know-it-all's and PM's that never visit their property. Compensate the employees that bring more knowledge and experience to the game. You're only screwing yourselves out of having great employees.

    I worked at FPI Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Living on site is the only pro I can think of?? Oh and management may buy you lunch every now and then

    Cons

    Have to work overtime with no pay, sexual harassment and retaliation. Corporate sucks and backs their supervisors and upper management. They do not care about employees and the hard work they put in. I was sexually harassed by my manager the entire time I worked for them! I reported it and they told him. After that he set me up to get fired and told everyone that I told on him! Worst experience ever!!!!!!!! Stay away they work you long hard hours but don't pay you for it! I hate FPI and don't recommend to anyone!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a whole new line up!! Corporate included..

    I worked at FPI Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers were all very friendly when I worked there. Company also provides good training to employees. They use an online softwear program to teach you the in's and out's of property management. Great discount if living on-site in one of their properties.

    Cons

    Sometimes decisions were made very quickly by upper management...like the office is moving to another location in the building tomorrow and your team will be doing the moving.

    Diversify, closer oversight of Regional Managers is needed

    Pros

    The company is a great company to work for. The training you receive and one of the best companies I have worked for. Great pay and great benefits

    Cons

    Being that it is a management company depending on the owner of the property you may or may not receive bonuses. However you will always be taken care of as far as pay is concerned.

    I worked at FPI Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work here, unless you are a glutton for punishment. This company will work you to burnout then chew you up and spit you out.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management. All they do is make unreasonable demands in an unpleasant manner, and delegate everything so that the portfolio managers are overworked and miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on who you have representing you. Hire some people who don't just walk the walk and talk the talk. Make regional managers accountable and learn to treat employees like human beings rather than lowly peons, or slaves.

    I have been working at FPI Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was recognized for working very hard and was promoted very quickly.

    Cons

    Our regional manager is given far too much freedom and power. Since working under her both myself and my employees have been working in a highly abusive and toxic environment. We all work incredibly hard and feel that when she calls or stops by she takes the wind out of our sails. She is always angry and will literally cuss and yell if we contact her with a small question or are in need of minimal assistance. Along with this we receive no credit for our hard efforts because she takes full responsibility for all of our acheivements. I have hit a wall and am now seeking employment elsewhere as are my co-workers. They sent the community directors a survey to rate their Portfolio Manager and it stated that it was anonomous but she mentioned to an employee that she can get access to this information as she has worked for the company for years and has friends within the corporate office. Past employees of hers stated that if you go to HR she will leave you alone for a short period of time and she will then bully you until you resign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although an employee has been with your company for several years this time does not make for a good employee. Hold higher qualifications for your Portfolio Managers. E.G. college education. Listen in on their phone calls with employees to verify there is no abusive occuring. Directors should give them more supervision.

    I have been working at FPI Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    *Great base pay
    *Commissions
    *Be able to walk throughout the day for tours or property checks

    Cons

    *No minor commission on leases that don't fall through due to applicants
    *Structure but enforced on those who are being favored
    *You can move up if you are being favored
    *In my property, the assistant director gets to change days more often to get weekend or at least on day of the weekend.
    *They don't train well and tough to move up when you are not favored

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should have the staff train well. They should not have favorites even if someone has been there longer. Sad to see how people change due to there titles or possible title they want to achieve. If you try to get information of your benefits or 401k or any type of employee benefit, it takes for ever and they don't clarify. If you don't ask, they don't discuss. They just hand you papers with general information that still leads to unanswered questions.
