    Pros

    Great culture! Interaction with every level of management and ownership and the care for team members is authentic. And they go the extra mile if a personal need arises.
    Great coworkers and commitment from everyone!

    Cons

    Still working out the kinks from the change over to Yardi, more an issue with Yardi than Berkshire. Have enough team members to accomplish all goals and sure all maintain life work balance.

    Pros

    Berkshire cares about their employees and the success of the property and individuals. Everyone I’ve interacted with at all levels of the company is extremely nice and helpful. You don’t feel like just a number.

    Cons

    Honestly, I don’t have anything negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    Pros

    Working for Berkshire stumbled upon me when I they purchased a property I was working for. They kept me on and it was the best coincidence of my career. Going on over 7 years of employment, I have been conditioned, coached, advised, and pushed more than I have in my life. You are family at Berkshire and have motivational leaders that believe you are the key to their success. Berkshire is more that just a career, it is a culture and one that is hard to come by. You strive to be the best version of yourself when you work with the best in the industry.

    Cons

    I have none to share.

    Advice to Management

    stay stellar

    Pros

    Culture, People, Leadership, Communities, Support

    Cons

    Work life balance can at times be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to stream line operating platform so we are not
    "checkers checking checkers" and can have even more time developing our people to be great leaders and operators. If a task we are required to do is looking backwards lets keep removing those and focus on forward progression tasks! Thank you :-)

    Pros

    Berkshire is a fantastic company to work for. Great morals and even better upper management. I have been in the industry for 6 years and by far the best environment and growth opportunities I have had! #BeBerkshire

    Cons

    Since I was in the industry I came with knowledge. However maybe more training and a peer training program could be beneficial to new employees to the industry.
