    I have been working at Legacy Partners full-time

    Pros

    Good for people looking for dead jobs
    Coworkers are friendly
    Friendly upper management
    Relax environment (depending on the job)
    Stable working environment (only in the certain departments)
    Good work life balance

    Cons

    Bad for people looking for career advancement and wanting to learn something new.
    Work is not distributed equally (some workers spend hours chatting in the break room, some work for hours and still not done with work)
    No overtime unless management approved (Budget your time wisely)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are friendly. I have no complaints.

    I worked at Legacy Partners full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not much to say. I guess that you don't have to clock in and out everyday. You just fill in your time card online. Manager comes in an hour late and leaves an hour early almost everyday; which means that you get to focus on your work during those hours and are not interrupted by the manager shouting from his office asking stupid questions that he can find the answers to on his own.

    Cons

    Benefits suck! You are way better off buying benefits on your own. Pay is way too low. You can make more money elsewhere. If you are hired with decent pay, they will manipulate the financials so that you do not make your bonus for the month even though you met your goals. The property I'm at is old and very ghetto. Company is too cheap to even buy office supplies such as ink for printers or paper. Sometimes we may go a few days without either. No support from District Manager, yet they want you to produce, produce, produce. If residents complain and call District Manager they end up getting more money back instead of paying what they owe. Then you are chastised for doing your job. Absurd!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real! There is nothing wrong with expressing to a resident the word "NO". The whole "pick your battles" motto does not mean bend over and open wide. Stand up and act like a manager!

    Try investing a few cents in your older properties. Plumbing is getting bad, roofs are leaking, termites are falling from the ceilings. Pathetic!

    Invest more money and training in your employees. I bet if you do this, you'll be able to retain happier employees and have less turn over.

    Former Employee - Operations - Multifamily in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Legacy Partners full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diversity in asset type, with the potential to transition into a number of sectors (multifamily, commercial, industrial). Commercial division is highly respected for its management and leadership.

    Cons

    The Multifamily Division leadership is poor, with narcissistic overtones... Certain members of the executive level have a reputation for black-listing past employees if they differ philosophically on how one should conduct himself personally in a professional setting. Be very careful what you say (no matter how morally appropriate), and to whom...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company is only as good, or bad as its top leaders in their respective roles. Squelch, or replace those in your organization who are giving the company a bad name by bad-mouthing past employees, both internally and externally...

    Pros

    The Communities are well developed and they have a Resort feel...A beautiful product to sell and call home...

    Cons

    To be Successful and have any longevity with the company you better hope you are able to brown nose and stayed on a certain someone favorite list. They do not value knowledge, experience or professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair and follow company policies not personal feelings.

    I worked at Legacy Partners as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Yardi Support department and they were the nicest group I have ever worked with. The office is located on the bay with beautiful views.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons, the only reason I left was because I moved out of state.

    Pros

    Legacy does do a good job in keeping up the appearance of the properties.

    Cons

    If you have a good property manager it makes all the difference between a good place and a bad place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The required paper work and and reports are redundant and a huge waste of time. Upper management needs to be at the properties more often to really know what's happening.

    Poorly managed company - Legacy Partners.

    Pros

    Beautiful brand new building I was able to manage.

    Cons

    The most poorly organzied property management company. The communication between corporate and community is non-existant. The complexity of the community I was managing was completely ignored and I was not able to spend the money needed in order to complete the building that construction left behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue.
