    I have been working at CIM Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Having worked at CIM across multiple departments for 4 years, I can definitely say I've had an amazing experience. I genuinely believe there is no place better than CIM to start your real estate career and there is nowhere you will learn more about investing in and managing real estate investments. Beyond the experience, the people and culture are another unique and special part of the CIM experience. I've made many close...

    I have been working at CIM Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, good environment, helpful staff. If you have a career goal you will have the opportunity to pursue those goals, only company I have worked with that really wants to hear from the employees

    Cons

    CIM GROUP is in a growth right now and they are experiencing some bumps along the way, but all in all. No cons

    Continue to listen to listen to employees

    I have been working at CIM Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    CIM has been a great place to work for so far to say the very least. I have been here since August 2018, and the rapport I have had with management, HR department (shout out to Karen!), maintenance team, and the cleaning crew has been exceptional. All of my questions and concerns are usually answered in a timely manner and to my satisfaction. Every single time there is a problem I am not able to resolve, Trevor our...

    Cons

    There has not been any cons working for this company thus far.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the company was a little bit more involved with their employees as far as trying to figure out what are their long term goals and if employees could be interested in perhaps pursuing a career with the company.

    I have been working at CIM Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've worked for Avalon Bay, Equity Residential and let me tell you, CIM Group outshines them all. Everyone here is genuine, dedicated, hard working and there is absolutely no micromanaging. Communication between properties and corporate is smooth and attentive. Hourly wages, bonuses, sick time, personal days, vacation days, holidays, benefits, and company events outweigh Avalon and Equity by far. I've only had positive...

    Cons

    We have to do Fair Housing Training Seminars every year. Lol. Unfortunately going to the seminars, taking the tests and staying up to date with all of the laws are required by every property management company, but hey, that's just part of the job. Lol

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Sometimes communication with care givers and vendors of some residents to make them understand the rules and regulation of the building is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Despite the negative reviews. CIM is a great overall Real Estate Company to work for with an unbeatable culture that rivals tech companies. The Company has many perks (see Pros above) to keep you satisfied and enjoy coming to work. Like all Companies however, the only downside is the department you are working in and your Manager / Boss. I find it very contradicting that we have such a free and open culture at CIM,...

    I have been working at CIM Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Culture of non-micro-management, small perks (snacks, OT dinners), good people working there

    Cons

    Good people are leaving, company seems to be mismanaged from top down, recent compensation disappointed many

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be a bigger company than you were meant to be. You hit your peak in both performance and culture 4-5 years ago and have made several bad decisions since.
