    I have been working at Associated Estates Realty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for advancement in any given field. If you work hard, this company will reward you for your efforts.

    Cons

    Sometimes the home life balance can be a little difficult, but that comes with the particular field. The job requires many of us in the field to work weekends and that can be tough on a family.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits.

    Excellent properties

    Cons

    It is a sales position, so if someone comes in at 1 min. till close you suit their needs. (not really a horrible thing)

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you're training your consultants. And while social media is great, Twitter Facebook and especially Pintrest and not effective means of advertising.

    I worked at Associated Estates Realty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Associated Estates was a long standing, respected company in the Cleveland area. Recently the company was acquired. The organization was a very fast paced, performance driven and employee focused.

    Cons

    Due to the organization being acquired, there was no further opportunity for continued contribution or advancement. The industry is at a great loss with the dismantling of Associated Estates.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep your heads up as you look for new opportunities to advance your careers. The demonstrated high level of performance we recognized by the shareholders and employees should be proud of the many accomplishments while at Associated Estates.

    I have been working at Associated Estates Realty full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have found this to be an excellent company and have grown from leasing, to assistant Property manager and then to Property Manager. The benefits are good, the opportunities to make additional income based on performance are great, the training is very good and I love that they are keeping up with the trends and current technology. Often, employees are given extra recognition and are often rewarded when they have done something above/beyond expectations. The company puts money into the properties every year and I completely agree with the direction in which the company is expanding - selling and buying. I feel Associated Estates has very knowledgeable and talented employees that keep this company moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Performance is always very challenging every year. The expectations are set very high but not out of reach with hard work. They do expect every employee to be willing to contribute to the success by often doing things that may be considered outside of your own job description, but that is what team work is and the entire staff is rewarded when goals are met. I have seen many different managers over the years, some better than others. Some managers do make threats and lay blame when goals are not met, but there are the good ones too that help find the solutions or will give support when unexpected circumstances cause low performance and help keep everyone motivated for success.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to focus on rewarding and keeping the talent that you have because it is a great loss to many when those good ones leave. Also, recruiting new employees when positions are open needs more support and active looking and maybe better pay for the skills desired. The property, like any office, suffers when they are under-staffed.
