    Pros

    Gain a lot of sales and marketing experience

    Cons

    Expected to work all events put on at the property and working all weekends except one; feel burnt out a lot of the time and underappreciated

    Advice to Management

    Turn over is high for these roles because some managers don't recognize all the work that the associates do. Encourage them and give them advice for their next steps and the 401k match should be higher.

    Pros

    AMAZING company culture/ overall good vibe
    If you enjoy talking to people and problem solving, then it's a good environment
    Good for those who think they may be interested in Real Estate/ Property Management. Title is "sales and marketing associate" however would consider it more of a leasing agent role. If you're looking for marketing experience this isn't necessarily that role.
    Higher-ups are very accessible and genuinely care about employees.

    Cons

    Working weekends gets old
    Bonus structure varies greatly depending what property you work at
    Good entry level salary, however not sustainable for long term

    Everything about the company is great. Co-workers, the residents, the pay, the PTO, and the experience. I love it and hope I can stay with the company for a really long time!

    I have been working at Bozzuto full-time

    Pros

    - Beautiful properties (which is whatever)
    - Concierges and Maintenance teams are the best
    I have no other pros during my experience!!!

    Cons

    Where do I begin?

    If I could give this company zero stars, then I would have. Run as far away from any job posting at Bozzuto. You get paid very little for the amount of work required. The on-boarding "training" does not exist. There was absolutely no guidance or expectations set. The "Sales and Marketing Associate" position is 5% sales, 0% Marketing and 95% Property Management. You might as well retitle the name to, "Property Manager Assistant". The property managers that I met were all horrible at there jobs and were completely disorganized. I've never seen a company more disorganized then this one and I've worked for many companies. The people who had these Management titles had a sense of entitlement about themselves. They will take the power they have as a managers and belittle you if you're below them or if you pose as a threat to their career path.

    If you enjoy your life, friends, family, etc then run as far as Forest Gump ran when he ran across the United States. You will hate your life working here. It was by far my worst experience in my young professional career and it deserved a review because of it. I hope you all will read this review and consider a different company. Please don't waste your time and effort working for people who don't care about you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all of your employees, not just ones who have been there the longest. Believe it or not, people have great ideas that can help make your business more efficient. The only bright spot your company has are your properties, concierges and maintenance teams. Everything else needs to be reviewed, changed and monitored. You will continue losing great talent if you look away from their ideas and only listen to tenured people. Good luck because you will certainly need it. The end is near for Bozzuto.

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

    Pros

    -The company is growing and more opportunities are becoming available. The base salary is competitive with the industry standards.

    -Some of my co workers have become my family.

    -In my experience, your manager can either make or break your experience.

    -You are never bored and time goes by fast.

    -Decent PTO program.

    -Company values are excellent and Bozzuto has a great reputation in the industry.

    Cons

    -Better bonus commission

    -Horrible work/life balance. You are expected to answer phone calls and texts on your days off.

    -Cliquish

    -Promotions are usually pre picked and based on favoritism, not who deserves it. Most of the time managers know who will be selected for promotions before the job is even posted. I don't think this is fair at all.

    -Constant unnecessary changes on site. The property managers like to take credit for all the success and hard work the sales and marketing associates do. It is pretty common for managers to throw you under the bus in order to save themselves. They will blame you for everything in order not to look bad in front of residents and their regional.

    - Stressful and long hours. In my opinion, pay is not enough for the amount of work you have to do. You will almost always stay after hours and will never get paid overtime. Good luck asking your manager for OT, they will probably laugh in your face.

    -I find it interesting that is nearly impossible to find the HR number to make a formal complaint. Why is that?

    Advice to Management

    Give promotions to employees who deserve it, not based on favoritism. In this company it seems it's all about who you know and not what you know. Have the HR contact number clearly visible.
