None that I can think of.

What is paid time off like at Cohobnb Properties?

Pros

Co-workers and field staff were great to work with. The business model and concept are good. The homeowners were an amazing group of people to work with and guests were fun.

Cons

You do not get actual days off to enjoy your own life. You come into the office at 8 or 9, leave at 5 or 6 and you spend the rest of the evening on the phone dealing with issues or answering questions or emails from the Owner/CEO who wants follow-up at very random and inconvenient times. You will be tagged until you respond and then get accused of ignoring messages if you don't answer. You must always have your phone on you and be ready to solve any issue at any time. You are not given time to think out the solution to the issue without the owner/CEO tagging you incessantly in Slack, berating every move either in front of your fellow co-workers, or ripping you apart in a private chat. If your management style is one where you like to foster the growth of your team, coach them in private, and generally treat them like human beings, you will not make it here. I was expected to coach the individual or team in a public forum and if it was in private, three people were always in the conversation. This included very minor details in which I was expected to rake the associate over the coals for making said mistake. If I was too soft or tried to be encouraging with my corrections, I was being berated in a separate slack message. Your list of priorities will change daily, if not hourly, making it impossible to accomplish the projects or work that needs to be done. Many people have left companies or positions they held for years because they see the amazing potential this company has. You find out very quickly that sacrifice was a mistake. If this review helps one person not make that mistake, then this was worth it. The owner/CEO is a great salesperson and you will be charmed and sold on how amazing you think the opportunity will be. There is no unlimited PTO. You get 5 days a year where you can turn your phone off. If you are sick, you do not get to rest, you simply can work from home but still be expected to perform just as you would in the office.

Advice to Management

Understand that the people you put so much energy into interviewing and hiring are talented and have the passion and desire to help grow this business. This is an amazing concept but you have to let people do their job. Your employees have a life outside of work and are entitled to that time with their friends and family after putting their blood, sweat, and tears into helping grow your vision and your dream. For the CEO/Owner- Find the person to lead the entire team and move out of their way.

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Cohobnb Properties?

Pros

Extremely supportive team always willing to help you. Raises are given pretty frequently based on performance. The vacation rental industry is growing quick and has lots of room for professional growth. Very goal driven environment with a work hard play hard mentality. Office attire is very causal and you get to visit some really awesome properties!

Cons

Not always the best/healthiest environment. It’s a startup, so there are going to be some operational issues. The owner/ceo is very involved and can be very intense at times and will definitely rub you the wrong way if you’re on the sensitive side. Unlimited PTO was very confusing (sounds like you are already clearing that up!) and there are only 5 true vacation days. Again, it’s a startup so these operational issues are to be expected to some degree. It does appear leadership & the new COO are aware of their issues and want to work to improve them.

Advice to Management

Extend more grace to your employees. Give them the benefit of the doubt if their performance waivers at any point. They’re some of the hardest working individuals and it’s tough to see them constantly stressed because they can’t catch a break. It’s an intense industry but doesn’t need to be pedal to the floor 100% of the time. It seems like you all are very well aware of ongoing issues, so keep working to improve upon them. This is such a great company and has so much potential to take off even more than it already has.
