    Pros
    AJ Dwoskin & Associates is successful for a reason.
    If you have a sense of urgency, sense of ownership, integrity and self discipline then you will find this company exciting. It is not for the faint of heart, but there is no limit with what you can do here. This company allows you to be creative, and gives you the tools and education to do so. Compensation and benefits are very good. My managers are truly managers. They balance kindness and empathy without compromising high standards. Human resources creates a safe haven, and keeps the balance. The benefits always make me smile, top notch.

    Cons

    When there are "cons", there is a pronounced effort to address and correct by management. This is one reason this company is successful and cutting edge in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course.

    Pros

    I have worked with other management companies and I can honestly say the culture here is genuinely a positive one. You cannot say that about every company here in the Northern Virginia area. Working directly with the CFO who always carries an upbeat and positive attitude is great. The RPM is working hard to improve the standards throughout the portfolio while remaining open to suggestions and feedback and keeping true to her hysterical sense of humor, which makes it fun to with her. The HR department truly cares for our employees and emphasize their open door policy for any issues or concerns. It's great to feel they really care. The Quality Control Manager is also always available to assist with procedures and works hard to be available to assist all the sites with the day to day needs. And lastly, the Marketing Department does a phenomenal job of providing feedback while remaining open to new ideas and suggestions. The overall high occupancy numbers have much to do with their involvement. Together, they all make working at A.J. Dwoskin and Associates a great place to work and are all great people and contribute tremendously.

    Cons

    Additional recognized holidays would be great :)

    Advice to Management

    Continue setting yourself apart from other management companies by genuinely caring for your employees and showing appreciation with events like the King Dominion trip last week, and employees will remain loyal and new talent will want to work for AJ Dwoskin, ensuring the company's success for years to come.

    Pros

    Small company that holds its own in the industry. The owner makes conscious investments in the properties and his people. The fact that the owner is hands on with his assets has always impressed me. He takes great pride in curb appeal and customer service. He allows, no he insists that his his teams provide the "ultimate living experience" to his residents by having his B+ properties perform and compete at an A standard! The company is tech savvy, offers generous paid training and tuition reimbursement programs, attainable bonus and commission structures with an interesting and evolving work environment.

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect!
    Positive begets positive..
    And its actually very easy to win here:
    1) Bring your A game
    2) Never compromise your integrity
    3) Earn respect
    4) Choose your battles
    .....and know only the strong survives in property management!
    Unfortunately, everyone isn't built for every thing..

    Advice to Management

    My journey at AJD has been both personally and professionally rewarding. I've had the opportunity to engage and establish solid relationships with an array of intelligent peers and individuals on varying levels. I have always received support and encouragement in my professional developmental endeavors. Naturally driven, its been easy to set the tone as I require a certain standard and work environment. I've always been afforded the freedom to maintain that high expectation from my subordinates.
    I've given my best performance for multiple years (5 to be exact) and I have received positive reinforcement and gratitude in return.
    Upper management departments (Marketing and QC) have successfully taken a collaborative management approach. Therefore, we're continuing to thrive as a whole with solid positions in the market. The RPM has an untraditional approach that captivates the site teams who are predominately made up of Millennials. HR is conscious of morale and places indefatigable effort on creating and maintaining a wholesome work environment.
    Let's continue to harmonize!

    I have been working at A.J. Dwoskin & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This has been one of the best companies that I have work for in my long career as a property manager. The best thing about this company is the ability to reach anyone at the corporate office for anything at any time. I have worked for 2 larger companies in various positions and this company has by far the best attention to detail I have ever seen. The corporate office really care about the employees they hire.

    Cons

    Not one at all, you cannot come to a company and expect thing to be perfect and the way you want them. You have to work with the systems that are provided and make them great in your own way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing job, they corporate office team cares more than most. The new Regional Manager is by far the best in the business. The HR Department to the CEO of the company are all amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to come work.

    I love working for a company that cares for their employees. That are always looking for ways to improve. Bonuses are awesome!! very generous.

    Cons

    I have no cons for this company. They treat me well and listen to what I have to say.

    Advice to Management

    I have been here for 2 years now, and at the beginning it was hard because I didn't know too much about my property, with great guidance I feel I have exceeding my expectations. though I have seen people come and go, I can truly say we have a great group of people. and let me just having a regional manager that REALLY cares for her team is a plus. no matter how crazy some of our ideas are, or even if we need help tough situations, I know I feel very confident I can go up to her and she will listen, help me out and guide me. she does not think she is better than anyone. she treats us fair. I know that with her guidance we will exceed. I am very happy with our marketing team, they are always on the ball! they have been some great changes to the properties. Their online skills are of the charts. HR is the best. I feel free to go and speak my mind without being judged. Overall if you are looking for a company where you can go and exceed this is the company for you.

    I have been working at A.J. Dwoskin & Associates (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Properties are older so competition in that genre is less compared to the newer developments out there.

    Cons

    No job security. Upper management like to micro-manage. incompetent upper management. Policies make no sense, leaving employees frustrated and confused. High employee turn over for a reason. Currently looking for other employment myself.

    Advice to Management

    They need to get ride of upper management as they are devaluing the organization.

    Pros

    Very competitive pay and benefits. Plenty of good people work for this company. Paid education and training which I'm very thankful for.

    Cons

    Upper management works for themselves. HR has become completely powerless or careless. In the five years I worked for this company I saw 6 Maintenance Supervisors come and go, 4 Project Managers, 9 Property Managers, 4 Assistant Property Managers and countless Maintenance Techs and/or Leasing Consultants.
    I saw great employees with great work ethic being fired for the pettiest of things or wrongfully accused, while others with little experience and poor work ethics get a slap in the wrist for much worse offenses.
    No room for growth, and whoever does make it higher ends up getting fired too.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay is above average. I like the pay training.

    Cons

    Human resources encourage me to take my concern to human resources. How can I go talk to them when I have noticed that People go to them and there are no action taken to support them. Someone just got fire when he had a problem in his property he went to human resources and he got not help. After he went he got let go after two months or less than that time. How u guys encourage people to go to you human resources when they won't get help. You guys encourage the management and supervisor to abuse their position knowing that human resources don't help them. I'm saying this because the person in our property that is about us said that upper management support that person that they hire. I'm disappointed that someone get let go when only after they go human resources and it's not the first time it happens.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do better job with problem in the properties. Please don't make people take harassment classes or test when u guys don't follow the rules. Thank you

    Pros

    I have been with the company for almost a month and I am very impressed. The HR department is A+. They genuinely care and the attention to detail is top notch. This company feels like home and definitely one of the best that I have worked for in a long time!

    Cons

    So far, no cons. I don't suspect that there will be any and if one or two should arise, I doubt it would be worth mentioning.
