    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 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.

    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.

    I have been working at Camden Property Trust full-time

    Pros

    Clear vision, excellent training, potential to move up in company

    Cons

    Favoritism, policy changes that affect personal life. They recently changed their Sunday hours from 1pm-5pm to 10am-5pm. Now it is impossible to attend church on Sundays. They try to spin it like it's a positive and that we are helping our customers but really they are just waiting for the complaints and hype to wear down because they are not going to do a thing to change this. Many people are extremely disgruntled about this.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your onsite teams for more input before just forcing everyone into a policy that affects their religious freedoms.

    I have been working at Camden Property Trust full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All the standard 401k etc. plus innovative perks most companies dont have, education reimbursement, education scholarships for children, discount on apartments, FUN work events, encourages fun working environment, Top level Execs give back, bonuses

    Cons

    More thought out career paths for admin level, communication of initiatives well enough in advance, annual pay analysis of positions to remain competitive

    Advice to Management

    My cons are more of an improvement needed not necessarily a huge negative factor but something to consider none the less.

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

    Pros

    Vacation time, sick time, 401K, United Health Care, commission and bonuses.
    Properties are well kept and easy to lease. Management takes a lot of time to market and create custom property brochures so that every client knows what Camden will offer before renting. Camden also provides a call center so that if offices are busy or closed customers will always have a Camden employee helping them.

    Cons

    Some properties are understaffed leading to an overwhelming work load for both maintenance and office staff.
    As a leasing consultant we do not get weekend days off and I know thats something that we sign up for. I wish upper management would at least give one weekend day off per month mandatory that would not count as a vacation day so that we have a better sense of work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Effective leadership is imperative! An effective leader will always do their best in a good or bad situation and include staff in why the decision may have been made. Some managers are micro managers or don't listen to problems and others give lots of empowerment and do listen. I hope that upper management will have more training classed for Managers so that they can be the best leaders and if managers have had problems that they are seriously felt with.
    I personally am extremely thankful to work with the leader who listens and makes me feel empowered every day.
