    I worked at Holland Residential full-time for 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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Managment cares about their employees, corporate office isn't just a building full of horrible people, they're all great and enjoy having fun at their jobs. LOTS of opportunity for advancement, constantly buying/building properties.

    Cons

    Dress code is pretty strict and not always flattering. Lack of training offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up better training within the company that is exciting and rewarding. Pay incentives/spiffs/contests.

    Pros

    Great bonus structure, residents are great, most co workers are fun and easy to work with.

    Cons

    You wont notice your hourly raise on your paycheck..it's that low!! Everyone who works there from RM to Groundskeeper are over worked and under appreciated. Never a good time to take your vacation days, you will never get a weekend off, WAY to much gossip from the upper management. You hear things about other employees that you should never know, They dont seem to care about anything but numbers and will transfer you from property to property without any advanced notice or regard for your schedule outside of work. They dont follow their own core values. They also need to streamline all of the software systems that they use. It becomes redundant and time consuming to enter the same info into 3 different systems. Its a waist of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees and realize that they have lives outside of work. Unless they are in a roving position, you have no right to pull them out of their permanent position in which they were hired for and put them wherever you want without talking to them first.If after a year of you cant give them a decent raise, dont give them one at all. 38cents an hour is offensive. Stop gossiping about everyone. If you make promises, keep them. Show some integrity. Basically...FOLLOW THE COMPANIES CORE VALUES!! Good People-Good Business-Customer Service-Have Fun!!!! It's what your employees expect when they sign up because thats what you tell them! Stop spending so much time and energy on watching every little thing and reporting on every little thing. Your employees feel micromanaged to say the least. Simplify!

    Pros

    There is room to get a promotion and move up in the company. Training (when they bother to provide it) is good.

    Cons

    Management takes advantage of employees, and makes promises they don't live up to.
    Company "values" are not upheld and people get ahead by being political.
    Software programs are outdated and too many are required to accomplish daily tasks.
    Benefits are expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees and promote people fairly.
