    I worked at Ambling Companies part-time

    Pros

    I gained the opportunity to travel with other accountants to properties and audit files, there was always free coffee, the office hosted events on holidays, and paid overtime for working Saturdays

    Cons

    Drama amongst other co-workers and were too demanding with my schedule while I was in school full-time

    I have been working at Ambling Companies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You receive a $25 commission bonus on each lease you complete. A good start in your real estate career. Not too many complaints

    Cons

    I really wish there were more opportunities to grow in the company. Management could interact with there employees better. May have to pull two jobs if you are a college student

    Advice to Management

    Become more involved with staff

    Pros

    The pay to Regionals is the only pro; however, it comes at the cost of your soul so its not worth it. This company pays you well to burn in hell.

    Cons

    Where should I start? This company lies to every local, state and federal agency it has a responsibility to report to. If you refuse to lie for them, they'll ruin your name and reputation. They'll fire you, which is a good thing. The women in their corporate offices are genuinely jealous of young, talented good looking staff. The women are all incredibly unattractive and bitter. The VP all have absolutely no retention to speak of because if you aren't comfortable with lying or manipulating budgets they'll fire you. They have absolutely no desire to have a reputation of keeping staff. Everyone, except them, is disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Your reputation precedes you. Its time to reevaluate your company. It's time to make significant changes to remove and improve.

    "Community assistant"

    Pros

    Ambling Management was committed to helping the growth and progress of the new student housing complex, Haven West. They visited the office a couple times a year and made sure everything was going smoothly.

    Cons

    After having worked with Ambling Management for two years, I do not have any recommendations. Unfortunately, they sold the property to another management company so I was sad to see them go.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have anything I would advice Ambling Management on. They did a wonderful job managing the student housing apartment complex and I liked all of their policies.

    Pros

    The only good thing about the company was they give you two weeks vacation and 11 holidays but you're still on call for holidays.

    Cons

    They never pay their bills on time and always on call.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to listen better and keep the bills paid.

    I worked at Ambling Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I felt as if I was apart of a team. HR is filled with very sweet and helpful people. When they are with you they are with you.

    Cons

    Didn't fill like there was much room for growth after the PM position. The executives didn't have knowledge of the conducive working environments some of us were under and continued to show lack of consideration through lack of knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    They showed that they tremendously value their workers. They'd give unexpected give bonuses for hitting quota and simply for the hard work and effort that was put forth.

    Cons

    Would've been helpful to be more persistent in hiring other employees.
