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

    Pros

    They take great care of their employees, encourage a good work-life balance, and pay better than most other Property Management firms across the board.

    Cons

    Because of the company loyalty, there isn't as much turnover. Employees who aren't willing to relocate may find growth difficult in a smaller market, though the company itself cannot be faulted for a lack of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Involve onsite operations in development of new projects to benefit from their expertise.

    Nice work environment, low stress. Worked with a great team of people, no micro management. Opportunity to move throughout the company and to move up.

    I have been working at Simpson Housing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    GREAT benefits, room to grow always, community/corporate events & volunteer work is great...AWESOME bonuses and commissions

    Cons

    The management is very immature, catty and selfish...conniving ways, very blunt, lazy, makes the staff very uncomfortable to want to work with them. HR doesn't seem to know much or look into situations, they leave it all up the Manager where the problem started. Very unfair.

    Advice to Management

    be more humble with staff and residents, you work with people so BE a people person, have a heart...LISTEN first, that's key. Take more responsibility and charge as the Manager. Treat EVERYONE equal.

    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 Management

    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 a 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.

    Pros

    Great bonuses and benefits. Generous PTO.

    Cons

    As a leasing consultant, I would receive a pay cut to advance to an assistant position.

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with employees under the property manager level.
