    Pros

    Fairly good benefits, but they change them to save upper management money. It made the benefits less appealing to the employees

    Cons

    poor knowledge of their property managers when it comes to their knowledge of rules that apply to the government, they cared more of themselves than the properties best interest & poor follow-up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better check & balances

    Pros

    None I can think of. That's horrible to say; however, this place is truly unbearable for most people to sustain.

    Cons

    CEO has no backbone, CFO is passive aggressive and gossips worst than a junior high school girl, COO is CFO failure.

    I worked at the Continental Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large company and room to grow in the property management field. Very Customer Service Oriented; provides professional and work ethic service to all Board of Directors, homeowners, vendors and contractors. Such a great EXPERIENCE to work for a Great Company and be a part of their TCG Team. I was in a Fantastic Hard working Team ( very important; reason why I have such a great impression of TCG)

    Cons

    Difficult to balance family and career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value and respect all employees; recognize your employees. Happy valued employees deliver and make Happy Clients. Kudos to all employees that make the companies from HK to Managers that are on the fire lines putting out fires and taking hits.

    Pros

    Large company, they manage a lot of buildings and communities in South Florida and there is room for growth/circulation. Good for college student, not a career.

    Cons

    They don't help their staff get ahead. Almost everyone I met that works for Continental seems lost and they are very slow. They are not professional at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training on MANAGEMENT!

    I worked at the Continental Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I would not give this company even one star!

    Cons

    * The staff is not trained properly. You get a binder with specifications that are not current.
    * Regional Director instead of giving you a training just pretend to get invited for lunch.
    * You have to use the contractors that your manager demands you no matter the budget or the work that needs to be done.
    * Most employees are very unhappy and are very dissatisfied
    * They don't care about their employees. You are just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your employees with dignity and respect, listen to their ideas and train them correctly.

    Look at the little people, and acknowledge them. For they are the one doing all the work and helping to make the company shine.

    I have been working at the Continental Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent food selection provided to homeowners at Board meetings

    Cons

    Job description not clearly defined

    Job expectation not clearly defined

    Poor communication from management

    Lack of proper training, coaching

    Little effort spent getting to know homeowners

    Employees are disposable

    Management does not have your back and will throw you under the bus at the first opportunity

    All in all this was the worst company I have ever worked for. I would not recommend them to anyone and would advise anyone currently working for them to keep their resume fresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with the dignity and respect you'd want to be treated with.
