    Selling your soul...

    Executive Property Manager (Former Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThey pay well when compared to other management companies.

    ConsRegionals and corporate level management have no clue what is going on at the site level. Favorites are chosen and allowed to get away with bad behavior and bad business practices. Property managers are picked on by regionals and expected to work 24/7.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are some very valuable employees who haven't left yet- do whatever you need to do to keep them happy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No respect, No life

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay is pretty good if you can handle the atmosphere and hours. Teams are pretty close and friendly, normally because everyone is commiserating.

    ConsLittle respect for people and their lives. Unclear policies and strategy. Everyone walks on eggshells because they never know what the owner will throw at them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce reporting to what is actually needed and useful. Circle the wagons on what policies and strategies are being implemented to eliminate confusion. Treat employees with respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Don't take a position here without talking to former employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey pay well because they know how toxic the environment is

    ConsYou will suffer post traumatic stress from working here

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeparate the owner from the management company and things would be much better

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Your an Idiot

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you work in the lower tier of management probably a decent job. Owner is very savy, but a nightmare to work with if you have to be in direct contact. Everyone else is pretty good to excellent, but there is a fairly high turn over rate.

    ConsIf you have to deal with the Owner directly be prepared for a very rough career ride. There aren't enough hours in the day to ever satisfy this guy, and he will let you know it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company with growth potential

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSatisfying, Growth, Leadership potential, teamwork, acountability, rewarding

    ConsCut throat, clickish, hypocitical policies, outdated software, time wasting practices

    Advice to Senior ManagementCould definitely listen to the consumer more re: trends (free online payment), software (MRI not functional and a waste of co. time), upgrades to current outdated programs etc...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Enjoyable Job with Corporate Politics

    Sales Consultant (Former Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsDecent hours, good benefits/PTO time, decent pay, easy job

    ConsCorporate politics- the choose who they like and dis like. You must kiss up to grow in the company. There are a lot of policies in place just because someone in charge says so. You must buy into the village green way and drink the kool-aid to be liked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your minds. There are to many unnecessary rules and quotas.

    Do a double check before accepting position here

    Manager In Training (Former Employee)

    ProsProperty Managers and Service Managers are friendly and supportive and truly care about their residents.

    ConsTerrible work hours expect a 6 day work week easily and a ton of overtime. Area Directors and VP's do not realize how hard site staff work. Very little positive incentives. So many reports, and demands and write ups. Benefits are average. PTO is hard to take on site because of restrictions. Communication at corporate office is awful and the people are not friendly. Company claims to have values. Have yet to see them actually implemented and followed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good look at who sits in the Senior Level seats. The reason the company isn't changing is because those key people aren't capable of change. They are the root of the problem and the company will never grow until restructuring occurs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
