    Pros

    They Pay well and have good benefits. You usually get support from corporate depending on who your regional manager is and they usually get right back to you.

    Cons

    There is lots of change and it is not always for the bette. They also seem to have a high turn over rate with emplyees, especially the leasing and maintenance staff.

    I worked at The Collier Companies part-time

    Pros

    If you are a student, managers do a pretty good job of working around your schedule. Bonuses for leases are great and that company decal is a life-saver on game days.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover in management. You may have a great manager one year and a tyrant the next. Turn is a rough time of year.

    I worked at The Collier Companies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company. Awesome management, and they all care about you. CEO is very intelligent and looking to bring in and retain talent. The like to bring interns in to work on specific projects, although it is unpaid, they give you a great opportunity to make a difference at an executive level.

    Cons

    None. Had a great experience and would recommend this company to anyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep recruiting the Masters programs at UF. Lots on talent coming out 10 blocks away.

    Pros

    Everybody I work with is really friendly, and the atmosphere is very positive. I really like that we're looking to improve our processes, and that I get to be a part of that. It's good to be part of a growing company since that means there are opportunities for available for myself. Best 401k plan I've ever heard of.

    Cons

    You don't get much time off in your first year.

    Pros

    Great commission, good coworkers, flexible schedules. Overall a place that is enjoyable and honest.

    Cons

    High turnover, pressure to get leases, employees rarely feel valued for their hard work. Management is clearly stressed and that stress trickles down to employees at all levels.

    Pros

    -Sales experience for college aged students
    -Flexible word schedule
    -By no means a terrible job for a college student

    Cons

    -Commission is terrible. Maximum of $25 for a lease that brings upwards of $5000 to the company, and that's only if the lease is signed on the same day as a tour.
    -Mindless tasks outside of your job description simply to help management look more favorable in the eyes of their superiors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to build a greater appreciation for the people making money for the company.

    Lots of room for professional and personal growth. You put in what you get out.

    Cons

    pay is the worst in town. A full time job pays less than if you got two minimum wage part time jobs. turnover is high
