    I have been working at Camden Property Trust full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Camden is built on core values that allows us to be empowered and have fun. Camden offers a number of different programs we can participate in such as the mentor program, Camden blogs, management advisory committee as well as some creative teams for our awards ceremony and conference skits. Camden offers great perks for it's employees - my favorite is the corporate suites. Benefits are great as compared to previous employers within the same industry.

    Cons

    As every workplace has it's room for opportunities - I would have to say that head count per property could be reviewed for improvement. Seeing that Camden is such a great place to work for the number of upper management positions rarely come available leaving little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to initiate reinvention.

    I worked at Camden Property Trust full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everything about this company is amazing. From the people, culture, structure, work ethic, teamwork, etc. I worked for this amazing company for 5 years! The only reason I left was because I was moving to an area that didn't have any Camden communities.

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say. It can take some time to move up and that is the only downside.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, this company will always have a huge place in my heart!

    I worked at Camden Property Trust full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. You will learn how to step beyond your comfort zone. From the Vice Presidents on up, they are grounded, easy to approach and make it a positive experience.

    Cons

    A Senior Admin once said the day to day feels like a circus. A former coworker said it’s like a high school click. I agree. Directors down through the ranks get too competitive that they lose focus of teamwork and get cut-throat.

    Advice to Management

    The values are excellent but they are not really practiced. You have people willing to cause harm to others to keep their own job. Just because a team lead is technical doesn’t mean they walk on water or can’t be replaced. Audit or investigate because you have people that break things to prove their point for their own agendas. From what I saw they collected information for blackmail and they were especially vindictive. Stop turning a blind eye.

    I have been working at Camden Property Trust full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Camden makes all of their employees feel like part of a family and something that is so much more than a job. It's not even a career, it's more like a lifestyle. Not only are you in an office with a great crew, but you are surrounded by districts and regions full of awesome team members who are there to support and guide you as you continue to grow with the company. Senior leadership is incredible and will strike up a conversation and really get to know anyone, in any position within the company. I have even seen some of them stop to help a resident during a building visit. Truly a lead by example team. Being with Camden makes you want to strive for more and really push to help grow your community, as well as the overall company.

    Cons

    To date... I am unable to come up with a real CON for working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Camden is by far the best company I have ever worked for. They truly care about you and your family. Great benefits,training and support. Customer focused and amazing culture. I have committed myself to a long term career with Camden.

    Cons

    I have recruited 5 people to Camden. Cant say much negative about the company. Of course they are not perfect, but they have greatly increased my family's quality of life.

    They have great opportunities to move up in the company as long as you are willing to work hard. The people are amazing and the Camden culture is the best.

    Cons

    The commute is pretty far but it is all worth it to work here.

    Pros

    Camden truly cares about their employees and their customers. It is rare when you find a job you look forward to each day.

    Cons

    Anytime you work with the public, there are going to be some challenges.

    I have been working at Camden Property Trust full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of Camden is the people you work with... and MOST of the customers as well (but that is the same everywhere). Management will support your growth if you seek it out.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of things to do that pull you in multiple directions and it does get stressful. Less compensation in commissions than other companies (offset a little by the great culture). Not much opportunity for growth because high tenured employees don't leave and Camden is not expanding rapidly at this point to create those opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see us continue to progress in the customer experience area. We are good, but not great. I think everyone in management already knows this, however, and are already working on making these improvements.

    Pros

    Camden really strives to be a great company to work for and a great place to live. They know that people are their biggest asset and definitely invest in them.

    Cons

    So apparently you have to enter 5 words in the con box to proceed.
