    I have been working at Oakland Consulting

    Pros

    OCG is a small intimate organization with easy access to steak holders. There is professional growth and earning potential with OCG

    Cons

    The infrastructure is poor as is the process control and oversight. Administrative support staff are asked to multitask and there is no specialization in-house with regard to Accounting, Security, Payroll, HR, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in infrastructre. Once SMEs are hired to take control of specific processes/ duties senior management needs to buy-in to the change. The status quo needs to change and that starts at the executive level.

    Pros

    There is a 7-11 in walking distance

    Cons

    CEO is meddlesome and refuses to share decision making authority with SMEs hired to run their respective pieces of the business. In addition, the facilities are atrocious, mold permeates the building and their are dead insects left to decompose in the 70s style ceiling lights. Individual work spaces are not separated from common areas and their appears to be no desire to invest in upgrading the facilities or infrastructure. Very difficult environment to work in by itself but when coupled with ownership's hand's on style you'd be wise to pass on this employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with the rental properties.

    Pros

    The company is small enough that individual employees have direct access to C-level executive. The employee benefits (e.g. healthcare, vacation, 401K) are good and comparable to other companies providing similar services.

    Cons

    Infrastructure leaves much to be desired and Ownership is hands-on to the point of interfering with SMEs performing their duties. Expectations are unrealistic given the organizations size and current operating status. HR, payroll, and matters of facility security are all handled by a single employee meaning none are performed at a satisfactory level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with property management as it appears to be ownership's core area of competence.
