    Pros

    I've loved doing contract work with Invitation Homes. The company is creative and inspires me to come up with new ideas. The staff truly cares about its employees and residents.

    Cons

    I don't work in the office, so I don't know what the company culture is like at the headquarters.

    Pros

    If you like an environment where changes of process, procedure, policy occur on a daily basis, this is your place.

    Cons

    Startup where management has no clue - changes occur daily in what Dallas wants an employee to do. Sr Mgmt is clueless as to the operational requirements.

    Pros

    good benefits, nice co-workers, convenient office location,

    Cons

    unpaid overtime requirements, biased management, constantly changing policies, poor resident retention, high employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to portfolio managers and work with resident issues to resolve problems rather than create difficult to enforce polices that create tension with residents and portfolio managers leading to poor job satisfaction.

    Pros

    The front-line employees such as outside agents, local call center, portfolio managers and similar staff want to provide quality service to the tenant base. Overall, they are people with solid work ethic who believe in beginning and completing tasks necessary to provide service, quality, value--you get the picture-- to a tenant base.

    Cons

    Management is corrupt because the company goals are antithetical to honesty, integrity, value, quality, and service. The company goal is singular: profits for shareholders far removed from the likes of residential property rentals. So, the goal is to automate what can be automated. Employ highly unqualified and unlicensed personnel, cut costs where possible...mostly in customer service and quality repairs. Rent increases and evictions, irrespective of property condition, location and company dysfunction. For now, the economic climate provides a safe haven and profitability for this culture.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice that would be meaningful. Since primary goal is in direct opposition to the requirements of running this business with honesty and integrity while providing value for your rental dollar. Let's hope this business model crashes and burns!

    Pros

    You can change your "destiny" and what I mean by that is I was once blackballed by a lying supervisor. Finally proved my case and it's been smooth sailing ever since. If you do your job you should be okay, but company politics does play a part in your rankings as well as your knowledge and work ethic. I was stuck in the lowest position for 18 months because of rumors spread by a supervisor who has since been let go. Just play smart

    Cons

    Politics
    Pay isn't fair for workload
    Pressure for numbers
    Management can be horrid

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within (fairly), adequate training, yearly raises

    Pros

    I can't think of any, but had to type something.

    Cons

    Start-up company, no knowledge of the property management business. Nepotism at it's finest! Everyone is related or a family friend. Human Resources is useless. Surprised there haven't been in class action law suits against the unethical business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the entire management team & bring in honest ethical staff to re-build
