    I worked at Cascade Management (Less than a year)

    Pros

    On site manager was decent

    Cons

    Very low salary. Does not pay money owed. No balance for personal life. Management does not care about employees. Lazy maintenance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay what you owe.

    "Horribly out of compliance, dated tech, and due to low pay, don't attract solid Portfolio Managers to fix the problems."

    I have been working at Cascade Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If it were properly run, there would be many. They have a large portfolio, good support systems (people) in place and longevity is on their side.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, upper management is either unaware or simply doesn't care about the massive compliance liability it has at nearly every property. Inexperienced and immature Portfolio Managers and staff that is less than top notch in most cases. Again, due to poor compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Audit your properties before you get sued or lose your HUD contracts. You've got major problems out there.

    Pros

    Good pay and hours are okay.

    Support for on site staff could use some work.

    Pros

    Easy going company to work for. GREAT CEO!

    Cons

    Timely communication so staff is able to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff so as not to overwhelm the PM and always strive to be a down to earth company caring for your employees who try very hard to please owners and company.

    I worked at Cascade Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work itself is easy
    The experience helps building resume

    Cons

    Highly repetitive
    High turn over
    Micro managed

    Advice to Management

    For the time I worked there about 5 people left the corporate office within the first month. Pay is definitely below average. The amount of micro managing is insane.

    Pros

    Not much good to say

    Cons

    They are unable to keep employees long. This causes them to keep employees that should be let go.

    I have been working at Cascade Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have some really great residents, that are trying to make a difference and be productive in society. I have seen them start to act like a community, rather than a bunch of strangers by pitching in, engaging in community events, helping other residents when in need and so much more.

    Cons

    Putting 110% into my work, caring about my residents, taking pride in my job, owning up to what I do each day, all what my immediate management does. Documented laziness, lack of tact & punctuality, turning their back on residents, making me do 90% of their job and 110% of mine and getting the email of credit being taken, or the I didn't know that the assistant was going to do that, very small office life of emails & "short" stories leading up to more work that ends up being a part of my home life otherwise it falls behind or doesn't get done.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate some of the management that has been in the management position on a 6 month basis. Listen to the thoughts of the residents in the building of that manager. They have more everyday insight on day to day proceedings. Don't let the residents feel like they are being ignored, it only takes a moment for someone to start to wonder why their concerns are being ignored, vs a few minutes to address real life concerns, such as safety & criminal activity. Move management to a new fresh property at the sign of burn out or giving up.

    Live on site, hrs, location, tenants

    Cascade Management doesn't back their employees, Doesnt give the managers the correct tools to do their duties correctly. doesnt follow through with their paperwork so complete tenants files in a reasonable time frame.

    Advice to Management
