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

    Pros

    Fair pay, great benefits, decent paid time off allowances, lots of room for growth. An opportunity to work with some genuinely great people, co-worker and residents alike at beautiful properties. Bozzuto really does have great company values and by-and-by they treat their employees well--higher than the industry standard, I believe.

    Cons

    Some managers don't know their own properties. They delegate only. I'm a firm believer that you should lead by example, and when you don't fully know how to do the jobs of the staff directly below you, there is no way for you to do this.

    Like a lot of office environments, the atmosphere can become cliquey and in the instances I've seen, the problem with this usually stems directly from upper management because they allow it to come to a head before addressing it.

    You're salaried, and as such are paid for 40 hours a week, yet more often than not you end up working far over 40 hours per week without receiving additional compensation. I realize this is a problem with corporate America in general, but I think that Bozzuto, as a company, is better than this and doing a disservice to their employees. Pay us for the hours we work. Yes, I know upper management is also salaried and they often put in overtime that goes unpaid, but they also make 2-3 times more than Sales and Marketing Associates do. If we're sick for the day, take vacation, or have to leave work early, we have to use paid time off or go unpaid. Is it so hard to pay us extra when we stay 6-7 hours a week after the office is closed, working hard, getting leases, and taking care of our residents? I don't think so.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us for the time we put in. If we work over 40 hours a week, pay us time and a half. We work hard for Bozzuto and property ownership. When we stay late it's not because we've been slacking off all day, it's because we're going that extra mile to take that tour that walked in 5 minutes before the office closed. We're getting new leases and making the company more money. Or, more often than not, we're staying late to take care of the residents that already reside at our property. We stay an hour late when that resident comes in as we're closing with a list of complaints. We stay late to ensure that all of those after work emails coming in from residents who need work orders put in are taken care of. We work hard to ensure that the standards Bozzuto (and those standards are gold, I may add) sets are always being maintained, so pay us accordingly.

    Extend the employee rent discount to ALL Bozzuto properties and stop limiting it to only the property that you work at. Not all employees can afford to live at their property, even with the discount. If you get a promotion you have to move at the end of your lease or you lose your rent discount. Why make us move? Moving isn't fun! Come on, we're a real estate company and HR should realize this and modify the discount policy accordingly. The discount is a huge perk and benefit, so make it universal at any and all Bozzuto managed properties. Having lots of employees living on site is a good thing, so it should be encouraged and made easier for all!

    I worked at Bozzuto full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Corporate culture and training at the headquarters was very transparent in helping me become educated in the sales and marketing of homes and becoming a leasing professional. I was excited to learn about the industry. Also I loved the recruitment team! They were very thorough and welcoming! Great team! I am very thankful to them for seeing something in me that made them believe that I was a good fit for the role. I am forever grateful as this experience has taught me a lot about myself and gave me a good overall impression of Bozzuto. Also the other Sales and Marketing Associate at the Flats 170 helped me learn about the leasing profession too, even though she was new to the industry just like me. I loved the support. Great benefits. Ultimately this experience made me realize what I really wanted to do in my career and future endeavors.

    Cons

    Sink or swim seemed to be the modus operandi. I get it, it does take a while to learn a new industry but if you're diligent and efficient and want to grow in-role then make sure you use the tools to grow. However, the property that I worked at is a very busy and seemingly understaffed for the amount of traffic, level of expectations, and work load. The function plan for the property was lacking in relation to the amount of traffic that this property saw and we were not in the least prepared in my opinion to meet the demands of existing residents, future residents, contractors, and the overall ebbs and flows of the business. The hours were all over the place and not conducive to work life balance. Overall I left because the corporate culture and the reality of the day to day did not align and translate on site at the property. I think that the sales and marketing position is a good role but training needs to be more thorough and realistic so that associates who are completely new to the industry are more prepared in their roles. Also the pay structure was low. Coming from a customer service management role, I took a pay decrease as a Sales and Marketing Associate.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to translate and incorporate corporate culture and training into the everyday aspects of the sales and marketing role. Although the property manager Haley was great and very tenured, I felt like a ship without a paddle at the Flats 170. Beautiful properties at Bozzuto however focus on taking care of growing your people with better training structure and perhaps the talent that you onboard will be retained.

    Pros

    Bozzuto's values are instilled in their employees from the beginning and it is evident through the hiring process that they really do hire people that fit the company culture and values of concern, creativity, passion & perfection. My team was always there to support me when I needed help and were always pushing me toward new feats. I appreciated my experience with the company and am happy to have been a part of such an amazing group of people.

    Cons

    They are a great company to work for that really cares for their employees.

    Wonderful people, plenty of resources, solid benefits, ability to try new things (move around the company)

    Cons

    Lots of ways to end up in a silo, doesn't pay exceptionally well (but it's not bad either).

    Pros

    Promotion from within. Good training.

    Cons

    Poorly compensated. 401k is weak. Bozzuto only matches up to 1.5% regardless of how much you contribute over 3%. This doesn't put employees first, it shows that the company is not interested in the future of their employees. Almost every company, *even small businesses*, at least match their employees contribution up to 5 or 10%.

    Advice to Management

    Please look out for your employees. We are the ones who earned Bozzuto the best property management company title for 3 years in a row.

    Pros

    Great hours (8am-4:30pm). Great vacation time (20 personal days plus 9 company holidays ). Good money. Great environment. Large company with a small company feel. Tom Bozzuto is one of the best leaders in the industry. He takes the time to become personally invested within every project and every person in his company. You don't see that very often anymore, especially in a company of this size. Tons of room for upward mobility.

    Cons

    I can't think of any so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Don't get away from what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great benefit package.
    The opportunity for growth is also a strong point, they do hire within.

    Cons

    No work life balance and I've recently come to find out that I get paid a lot less than some of the employees who started working at my property WEEKS ago. Mind you I've been with the company and have been at this location for over a year and a half, also bilingual and my work load has multiplied to the point where I'm not even happy with my job.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your managers to properly communicate as well as value their emoloyees. They should be able to identify what an employee does that deserves a raise when asked for one. Absolutely ridiculous that I get paid THOUSANDS of dollars less than an employee who started 3 weeks ago when I bring assests to this specific property that no one else does and out of the 5 individuals in this office I do the most work.
