    I have been working at Kettler full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent training, excellent employee appreciation, excellent opportunity to network with industry experts, great support from corporate and upper management

    Cons

    I've worked at other property management companies so far this has been a great experience. I think they are consistent with the culture that's created for the employees and that makes it very enjoyable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what your doing.

    Pros

    Great relationships with on site teams. Corporate has great training classes and allows you to present information that will be used

    Cons

    Corporate does not compensate as well as other property management companies. Long hours at Lease ups and old fashioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more before you lose the good ones.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, well known in the industry, opportunity for advancement (potentially)

    Cons

    No cohesion between managers, VP's, regionals in many areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better focus needs to be placed on cohesion between departments and site staff. There are people in charge whose ego's take center stage instead of the greater good.

    Pros

    great incentives and commissions. renewal bonuses are always a plus,

    Cons

    horrible hours, always have to work weekends, leasing managers are usually very ghetto and rude. horrible horrible horrible. do not work for this company. they treat you like crap and management is never available for "open door" policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better attitudes from management. when hiring leasing managers make sure they are a good fit with the rest of the staff.

    Pros

    Growing company, great benefits. The Regional I interviewed with was great. He had a lot of compliments and wrote a welcome letter about how pleased he was for me to join the company. He made me feel important and valued.

    Cons

    Company is understaffed and does not seem to care about sharing the overload with their employees. They are so understaffed you may not be able to attend training that is important for your job performance. Expect the best and you get less.!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Onsite management needs training on how to treat employees and show appreciation for what they do. One of the number one reasons employees leave their jobs is because they are not shown appreciation.

    I have been working at Kettler

    Pros

    Great experience, and consistent growth in responsibilities as this is a growing company. There are opportunities to really stretch yourself.
    Company seems to be coming out of an infancy stage and has not developed programs (training, inter-company projects, communication, systematization) that a company of comparable size would (both pro and con).

    Cons

    Hours are often deadline driven, which can mean very long work weeks.
    Are given enough work just short of downing you, can limit opportunities to go above and beyond as you just stay afloat.
    Communication between departments is not great. Kettler has many opportunities to build teams between departments, but there is entrenchment and a constant bit of short staffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benchmark, Build Systems, and Staff your company.

    I worked at Kettler

    Pros

    Decent hours, availability to transfer, good benefits.

    Cons

    My boss was very incompetent, her boss was oblivious and did not praise very often. Did not give incentives, highly favored employess, lots of gossip, understaffed, poorly managed properties. "Passing the buck" was the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice of the little people, recognize favoritism
