    I worked at The Connor Group full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Incredibly high turn over. Not enough staff per property. No work/life balance. Inconsistency in management. Bonus potential but there were multiple times goals were hit and bonuses not paid. Management does not care about individuals. Hard to get support.

    I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Held accountable, competitive, rewarding, structured, fun, team atmosphere and work with leaders. You will succeed if you want to, don't leave it in anyone's hands but your own.

    Cons

    If you are not self motivated or goal oriented you will not be successful. No one lasts that just wants a paycheck or just goes through the motions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to create some kind of mentor program for new hires so they can feel more comfortable sooner.

    I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture, hiring practices, training, opportunity to be a partner, wonderful group of people, huge level of dedication, truly care about the customer

    Cons

    Short on work life balance, but they're up front about it. High expectation, high accountability, high reward and recognition. It is a great place to work for someone who really wants to get ahead and is willing to do what it takes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More and better communication of health benefits, 401-k, etc. They are very good but more communication would be helpful.

    Pros

    After having lived the "corporate life," The Connor Group is like a breath of fresh air. Hard work, commitment and team work are rewarded in very unique and surprising ways. While friendly competition is encouraged, it never overshadows the underlying foundation of team work or our core values.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be an issue - especially if you're a person driven to succeed. But this is hardly unique to The Connor Group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talking about our core values and providing real-life examples. It's extremely effective.

    Pros

    This is a company with great people to work with. The company has solid benefits included ranging from salary to bonuses to insurance to 401K.

    Cons

    The Atlanta Region is limited on positions after property manager. In order to be successful, you will have to have a very strong work ethic and be prepared for working 50 plus hours a week including Saturdays and possibly Sundays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training still needs development.
