    I worked at Simpson Housing full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company with good support from upper management. Willing to stand behind their projects, employees and former employees. Good benefits, compensation and a fair corporate culture. Most employees when hired are there for a extended period.

    Cons

    Opportunities for internal advancement are very limited to non existent. Most employees stay in their positions and do not advance up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your current talent pool of employees and reward / promote those that are excelling and exceeding their job descriptions.

    I worked at Simpson Housing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There were some great things about working Simpson - you have access to some really great benefits and perks (healthcare, dental, free food, employee outings, etc.), the pay was solid, there was opportunity for advancement within the company..but it stopped there.

    Cons

    At least in my specific apartment complex (Horizons at Rock Creek), everything was completely disorganized. The goals of each team were not clear, specific tasks were not outlined and often left incomplete, many employees did not give a crap and seemed to slip through the cracks, etc. Worst of all, the higher up management was always absent or concerned about trivial things ("These binders at the front desk are so ugly, replace them!!!" vs. WE ONLY HAVE 5 MAINTENANCE WORKERS FOR 1,200 UNITS!!!!), and the atmosphere seems amiable at first but you quickly learn it is a dramatic, petty place with lots of unhappy people. Residents really hated interacting with leasing and the residential services, and the place really does seem to be going downhill. Definitely a bummer.

    I have been working at Simpson Housing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with. Emphasis on personal and work life balance. Growth in original position mentored into the next level; heavily supported by manager and company paying for training and outside education. I consistently see other employees promoted internally.

    Cons

    While the benefits program is pretty good, it doesn't cover naturopathic coverage, or massage or accupuncture; but the costs to employees stays minimal each year so I appreciate that. I've noticed that many people who have left Simpson in the past for whatever reason seem to come back and the company is usually very grateful and excited to have people back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps have more of an HR/ People services presence in each region and not just at the Denver headquarters.

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay, honest leaders, strong ethics, a company that does the right thing even in difficult circumstances

    Cons

    There are a few people who don't quite fit the culture (tend towards negativity) who are allowed to stay in leadership positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your VPs and determine whether they are actually providing service and benefits. Don't lose your focus on your employees.

    I worked at Simpson Housing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay if you've been there for a while. Great insurance and 401 plans. The company will spend the money on maintaining the properties.

    Cons

    NO room for any advance to upper positions. HR ONLY will listen to ONE side of any story or problem an employee may encounter in the workplace ( always taking managments side). Most upper management seem to think they are MUCH better than the LOW MAN ON THE TOTEM POLE. The place I worked had so much workplace bullying from mainly one superviser toward all persons in their controll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "To the corprate office " Please in the future listen to all people that come to you with a problem . If you listen to some of the complaints and act on them instead of hiding them from others "Bob" , you may be able to keep good hard working people with your company and get rid of the non working scum that ruins the moral of the entire team at the comunity
