    I have been working at Bonaventure Realty Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is so much growth with this company if you apply yourself. No day is ever the same and they really do utilize the talents that individuals have in each position.
    Events for employees are always advertised and encouraged. You are required to take a full week off each year, according to the handbook. The annual company picnic is always a blast! Participation in industry events and meetings are encouraged. They really want you to grow and learn as much as you can.

    Cons

    I feel that there is always so much going on it is hard to find time to take off. I am not sure if that is really a "CON". You just want to make sure that you don't miss anything fun!

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing!

    I have been working at Bonaventure Realty Group full-time

    Pros

    I have worked at Bonaventure for over 5 years, and to read these reviews baffles me. As with any organization, change is inevitable. It is how you respond to, and embrace those changes that makes you as an organization. I think employees need to take a look at THEIR dedication and their commitment level and re-assess what they are doing. Hard work is rewarded at EVERY lever with this company, and the amount of support that we are given exceeds every expectation that I ever had for an organization. We have an owner that is 100% committed to making us better each and every day. Sometimes people expect things to be handed to them on a silver platter, and that is not how the world works. You have to work for it.

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons. The things that we need to improve on, we are. The company sends out employee surveys quarterly, and the results are actually listened to. They react to our ideas, and they try to fix any deficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing. the more we grow, the more opportunities that are created for those who deserve it.

    I have been working at Bonaventure Realty Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with Bonaventure for almost a year now and have been impressed with my experience so far. Bonaventure has one of the most experienced and talented teams in Property Management that I've ever had the pleasure of working with! Exceptional leaders at the corporate level, onsite level and maintenance level!

    The Core Values Drive Team Bonaventure and this is witnessed in the day to day actions of every employee every day!

    The Leadership team really listens to what employees need to be successful in their day to day and make it happen (#5 it). It's really quite refreshing to work in an environment where you feel like you're being heard and valued as an employee and that every employee gives it their all every day!

    Pros
    Working with driven capable people, involvement with CVAA, happy hours, work life balance, Compensation package is better than average (including PTO, Medical, Dental, Vision, 401K and pay).

    Cons

    Benefits could be better for those needing family coverage. I'd also like to see Aflac offered.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to live by your Core Values

    I have been working at Bonaventure Realty Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bonaventure is a great company to work for. Not only do we lead the market but we lead the industry in innovation. Each site level employee has access to an abundance of resources to be successful. We certainly work hard and we play hard. The negative reviews are hard to read simply because they are not true. In any career you are going to be the reason for your own failures and successes. You cannot always rely on others for help, you have to master the art of being resourceful = make it happen! The site teams are not handcuffed. Each Property Manager is empowered to run the property, to make it successful. If you want to work in an environment where you are more of a puppet, then Bonaventure is not for you.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons for Bonaventure. The company does a great job of listening and addressing any concerns. Keep evolving, that's what great companies do.

    Advice to Management

    Lauren, you are doing a phenomenal job! Keep up the good work!
