    Pros

    So far I'm loving working for this company! I feel extremely supported and invested in. You are more than just another number at Berkshire Communities. There are always people around to help when needed and everyone consistently works as a team. This is my first position in the industry and despite the fact I've only been doing this for about 4 months, I've already grown so much professionally!

    Cons

    No issues so far with BC!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Berkshire full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a strong family feel at Berkshire no matter if your are on site, corporate, or national. Everyone makes you feel like you a truly a person, that you matter to the team, and that you are a unique individual whose uniqueness is appreciated. They are open to feedback, both good and bad, and will really listen to your ideas. Several items have been implemented in the almost 4 years that I have been here that I know were on site employee ideas...such as an extra week of vacation :)

    Cons

    The company does not have large footprints in geographical areas so promotion opportunities can take time and a lot of people leave once they feel they are ready for other higher level positions simply because the opportunity doesn't present itself quick enough.

    Advice to Management

    Since promotions aren't readily available, make sure that all levels are paid appropriately

    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.

    Advice to Management

    See above.

    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!

    I have been working at Berkshire full-time (More than 5 years)

    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
