    I worked at Buckingham Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They own a lot of properties in Indianapolis.

    Cons

    Where to begin? The simplest way to put it is that they talk big and don't deliver. Words like "values" and "transparency" are thrown around a lot, but ultimately they are sneaky. A very small group of people - with no real experience in the industry - at the top make all the decisions,. Regardless of how unrealistic these decisions are, they're enforced with an iron fist. The final straw for me was when I realized... that, as tons of people were leaving the company (at all levels), the top brass was going around telling everyone that they were *happy* these people were leaving, that Buckingham "trades up," that they would hire new people who were even better. So, you're telling me that you would rather dismiss the complaints of many talented people - some of whom had worked here for 5 years or more, and let them quit than address the critical issues? That you would pretend like these hardworking people were just "disgruntled" and replaceable? Very disturbing.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure what to say. I used to assume that people who badmouthed Buckingham were just showing their sour grapes. I changed my mind when packs of talented men and women left , and the company basically laughed at them. I assume this attitude comes from the top down. So, I guess my advice is to make some changes up top.

    Pros

    There are so many great things to say about Buckingham. I've never worked in Property Management before & since the day I've started I felt like I'm at home. The corporate training is fantastic and everyone is just an email away. There have been a few changes but the support is always constant. It is very clear that this company cares about all of their employees - from the ones just starting out, to those who... have been here awhile. They also care about the community - we have a day of service where we go out and volunteer as a team & they have the Buckingham Foundation which gives back as well. I would love to retire from Buckingham one day!

    I have been working at Buckingham Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Seem very professional. Big company with lots of properties.

    Cons

    Big gap between corporate and property staff as far as communication . Many team members have recently left. My boss left AND her boss just left too. Feels like something is going on. Employees pressured to give to in-house charity. Corporate publishes a list of which employees have donated and then, if you didn’t donate, they contact you to ask why. Charities are great, but I get like $15 hour - I need my... money! My boss (Manager) was always stressed before she quit. I felt really bad for her. She worked very hard every day, but it was too much. I was going to try to stick it out, but it worries me that I see all these people quitting. Why are there dozens of job openings here? What is happening?

    Advice to Management

    Seems clear that something has failed recently. The people I know that have recently left were hardworking and knew the business. Figure out why so many people are leaving. According to some, suggestions have been given to corporate, but it doesn’t seem like anyone is paying attention!

    Pros

    Growing company Combination of on site and corporate training Lots and of opportunities is your willing to move to Indy

    Cons

    Being the single property in the city, you get “forgotten” Property was always understaffed and had a reputation for “burning through people”

    Advice to Management

    Single property markets can’t be forgotten, if property staff changes drastically over and over, perhaps there should be some concern.
