    Pros

    My manager is the nicest guy I've ever come across. He is flexible with hours even if something comes up the day before. The pay is great and what's better than working at a campground??!

    Cons

    Working in reservations you always come across people who are rude and expect things free / special for them.

    Advice to Management

    Sun communities is very strict, thankfully my manager is kind and understanding. Sun communities have too many rules which make the process harder than it needs to be.

    outdoors, Met nice people, site manager was cool, residences where nice.

    Cons

    i was a temp worker, and had to pick up around the garbage dump and the things people through out was nasty. They found a person that can plow snow, so that's why I'm not with them.

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits (for managers, crap for other community employees). There are some quality managers and dedicated employees at the corporate office. Best time off program that I have seen.

    Cons

    Very stressful and seem to care more about numbers than people. Every year they found ways to reduce commissions and add job responsibilities. There is a disconnect between front line management and top management. It seems that the HR dept is taking over the company and certain policies are creating a disconnect within the company ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a better base before adding new communities. Underwriters and closing is spread so thin that it is hurting the ability of community managers to close deals and keep residents happy. Stay connected with the residents instead of creating policies that anger them and then give condescending answers when they complain. I don't think anyone with a half a brain would believe that signing a lease each year is in their favor when they were on a month to month lease for the past 20+ years.
