    There really are not too many cons with Holland.

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

    Pros

    It's not flipping burgers. It's also nice to work with some really fantastic people.

    Cons

    I would have to say there are more cons than pros. The fact that you will never have a weekend off will greatly effect ones personal life if you have a family or spouse. There's way to much micro managing and lofty sales goals. Other times, associates are told to perform tasks way outside of their job descriptions. Even worse is when all of this goes unnoticed by upper management. No room for growth, dismal salary, and horrible benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.

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

    Pros

    Commissions are great, probably one of the highest I've come across in my few years in PM. Holland is expanding in many cities so there is room for growth. There's several company meet and greets to get to know employees in your region and also seminars out of state so we get to leave the office for a day or so. Sometimes even Clyde joins in, which is great; there's a face to the company.

    Cons

    Commissions may be great but the pay, sadly, is not. It's one of the lowest I've ever seen when comparing to other PM companies. I sometimes believe they pick and choose who they want to give higher salaries to. I've heard Managers and Leasing Associates complain that they felt short-changed when offered their salaries/raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise that the Regionals stop looking at all the emails that are sent from residents to the leasing office, especially if something, such as a service request or resident concern has already been taken care of. It feels like micromanagement which can be pretty annoying.

    Also, start your Associates out on a better salary. It's a bit discouraging to see employees at competing companies make more than us. I thought we were better than that.

    Very high turn over rate but good with benifits

    I worked at Holland Residential full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The reason I stayed with Holland for as long as I did was because the benifits were good. You are given a 401k after I think 6 months and the insurance has a lot to offer. The pay was good too.

    Cons

    A very high turn over rate. You get used to one manager and the ways of that manager and before you know it you are either transfered properties or you have a whole new team. The managers are very "clickie" and if they don't like what you have to say or you alltogether then EVERY property manager will know and have a bias opinion of you. Its a very big struggle to be "heard" within the company if you have an issue with a manager. HR is very nice but they are there to just hear you and no results come from what you say and the reginal manager has a typical answer for everything if you try that route. You are asked to reach impossible limits with the tasks handed to you and you get nasty emails a lot due to your manager needing someone to blame for the work not being done and their fear of their manager coming down on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to hearing the employees instead of just knowing you can just find someone else. A lot of the employees have issues with what is happening with there property or manager and quit because when they try to be heard by upper managment, managment makes them feel stupid for even trying.

    I have been working at Holland Residential full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The usual starting position, Leasing Agent, pays well in comparison to other companies. A strong bonus compensation encourages you to succeed. Generally, their upper upper management has been great. Their is a real sense that they care about their employees. The team based culture leads to real sense of community. Lots of expansion means more job opportunities in the near future.

    Cons

    Depending on your regional manager, you can be set up for success, or struggle with your hands tied by micro management. If you don't want to become a property manager, the opportunities to grow within the company shrink substantially.

    Fun people, nice properties, opportunity for growth. Depending on your RM is... You will feel supported and valued. Bonus, Clyde Holland is one the nicest, smartest men I have ever met.

    Cons

    Wages differ greatly depending on who your VP is and what region you live in. Benefits are expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your associates that you appreciate them more often. Words of affirmation go a long way as do pedicures and kicker bonuses.
