    I have been working at Gables Residential full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They promote a lot of community service and contribute one day per year where all the associates volunteer to a local cause. They are very tech savvy and have many systems in place that make day to day operations more streamlined and efficient.

    Cons

    While they have a great training program there is no support coming from upper management. A certain level of mentoring and guidance is necessary for associates to stay on track and acheive their goals and this has been servely missed the in the past year. There is a trend with new management and associates are dropping like flies. It appears that the changes taking place have only the company in mind with no foresight as to how associates may react. There's nothing worse than having a boss who second guesses your every decision and has no faith in your proven capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the annual evaluation further by actually revisiting quarterly. It's nice to have a review that progresses throughout the year. If my supervisor is dissatified with my output I'd like to know about it sooner rather than later. Also if expectations are to change, tell the associates first so they have time to adjust.

    I worked at Gables Residential full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great Corporate Culture, Good Management, Good Company Benefits, Excellent A+ properties

    Cons

    There is a lack of consistency with training. They do not train property manager's to be "Gables Property Managers." The true definition of “On the Job Training” as you must learn their various systems and processes as you go (I did not even receive a formal company orientation).

    Secondly, The process of property management can be overly complicated or overwhelming even for the most experienced property managers because of their various systems, rules, and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training programs for new managers and a more simplified approach to Property Management.

    I have been working at Gables Residential full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Training is great, there are alot of classes offered and you learn alot, but they need to provide more mentors to work with you one on one when you start instead they tend to just put you out there and you sink or swim.

    Cons

    You grow with who you know!! They will bypass good people and promote or transfer their "favorites" to better or larger propertries regardless of how well they can do the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone wants to grow within a good company, in order to have less turnover take into consideration what people are really saying out there, read the reviews and suveys of past and present employees and promote from within but only those that know how to do the job.

    Pros

    excellent training, fun company events, co-workers are awesome, managers have an open door policy

    Cons

    a lot of work for low pay, work every weekend

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gables should look at the industry standard for pay scale. They say its based on the cost of living and if thats the case a raise to most of them employees is well needed. Other property management companies in the area are paying well above what they start their leasing professional at.

    Gables cares! One of the best to work for in the industry.

    Cons

    Lower pay scale than average, takes a while to get a response from upper management, very delayed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers more authority to make some of the decisions, so it is not always a waiting game.

    Pros

    I loved working in the Brokerage Dept. I had flexibility within my job, worked alone, but was able to meet and be around others. This job allowed me to be creative, which I enjoyed.

    Cons

    There was a lot of down time when I wasn't working on a specific project, so at times, I was bored. But, that didn't happen often.
