    I worked at Associa full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are none. Despite being a foundational employee who helped build what is now their national network, they will unceremoniously cut you loose based on new blood that has no concept or appreciation for the core business.

    Cons

    See above. Just an awful, unappreciative employer.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to love the people that brought you to the dance.

    I have been working at Associa full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have had the opportunity to work in a senior management role with Associa for 12 years this week. I have found the opportunities with this company to be endless. Sticking with our number one "foundation", "employee morale" provides one with the "guiding light" to success.

    Cons

    If one is not totally committed to serving our clients then this is not going to be a good match for a company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on our core values.

    I have been working at Associa full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, professional for the most part, no micro management

    Cons

    Low pay, unreasonable expectations, little to no training

    Advice to Management

    You really do get what you pay for. Higher starting wages would increase the efficiency of all business functions.

    I have been working at Associa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a large company but every one that I encounter from different branches are all really nice, helpful people. Family Spirit is our first value and I feel like I belong here. Everyone here wants everyone else to succeed, a very positive and productive environment - which is a win-win for employees and clients.

    Cons

    Because it is a big company, you just cannot get to know everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great spirit and encouragement, it just gets better and better!

    Pros

    None. Just a paycheck. Pay is nit good.

    Cons

    Awful company. Raises ridiculous. Benefits awful.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoritism. Have knowledge. Care about employees. Benefits suck. Increase pay rates so people are able to take care of themselves.

    Pros

    Empathetic leadership, wages, ability to relocate, work-life balance

    Cons

    Benefit matching, different branches can have different resources/procedures

    Advice to Management

    I work at a branch of this company and have nothing but positives to say of management both locally at my branch and nationally at headquarters. My only advice would be to offer corporate-level opportunities for employees other than upper management to attend, i.e. conferences. That being said, we do have access to CAI events and training options.

    I have been working at Associa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Associa provides a support environment in this crazy industry. Someone is always there to listen, offer advice or help when needed. My supervisor is always there no mater what day or time to help when needed. You don't get that a lot at other places.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of systems changes and it has been very hard keeping up with the daily work load and learning new processess. This has thankfully slowed down in 2017.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees. Also, offering encouragement and thanks for a job well done goes a long way with employees.
