    I worked at CWS Apartment Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CWS has well defined values and truly strives everyday to exhibit those values. This is a company that values their employees and is committed to giving every resource available to achieve success and grow more leaders. I saw a couple negative reviews here and I would want those people to know their boss's boss would want to hear from you because that is not the CWS way. Very supportive leadership all around.

    Cons

    I think the health insurance is a little hight, but I do believe it is on part with other companies this size.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at CWS Apartment Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extensive training. They send you to Austin for an entire week and pay for your suite. Great work environment. Overall they hire quality people who are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    I had a very positive experience. The only con would be that the commissions are not as good as many other multi family companies, but it's a trade off for a good work environment/company culture with no micro management.

    Advice to Management

    None. Probably one of the best jobs I've ever had.

    This company is the only company I have worked for that gives back to the community. I really enjoy working for CWS. Looking for a career you need to work for CWS

    Pay could be better, but it is very reasonable for the job title you have. As you move up the company you get paid a lot more.

    Pros

    Leadership and training are unlike any other company. Culture is contagious. You have so much support.

    Pros

    They're some great people who work for CWS. You made some solid friendships over the years.
    The core values of this company has so much potential.

    Cons

    Clicky, clicky, clicky. People get promoted not for their hardwork but for who they know. If you are friends with a Regional your job is pretty much secure no matter what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who deserve the jobs not your friends and listen to the people on-site. This company has lost way too many great people over bad management.

    I have been working at CWS Apartment Homes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    values, ethics, promote from within, feeling valued, progressive technologies, 401k match, wellness program and reimbursement, wonderful volunteer program, long employee tenure proves company loyalty.

    Cons

    expensive medical plans, poor choices for medical plans, more vacation/sick days sooner than 5 year mark, long employee tenure is bad because people are set in their ways/unadaptable,

    Advice to Management

    increasing the deductible to lower the per pay period premium is not enough to contribute to the overall negative attitude with the medical benefits. employer simply doesn't offer to pay enough of the percentage. not in line with other local (Austin) companies
