    I have been working at Continental Properties Company, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been here for about 7 months, but I absolutely love working here. My favorite part about this company is the people. EVERYONE around you wants you to succeed including my team, those outside of my department, and even the CEO. Your opinion and feedback is valued and actually taken into consideration by executives at the company. I am constantly thanked and appreciated for the smallest tasks, which really means a lot, as well as says a lot about our company culture. Managers take the time to get to know each employee in their department, and strive to ensure that their career aspirations are achieved. I could not be happier that I chose to join this company, and I look forward to what the future holds for Continental!

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but some people may not be able to adapt to our pace and expectations. With the industry we are in, we must continue to raise the bar each year to succeed. With that being said, the environment is very fast-paced and expectations are high for each and every employee.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take employee feedback into consideration when making decisions/changes, as that is what seems to allow us to continue to be so successful!

    I worked at Continental Properties Company, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    They have great training programs .

    Cons

    Upper management gives no support and allows you to get unfair treatment and bullying from peers. And there will be no work life balance due to severe understaffing at almost every property due to tight budgets.

    Pros

    Finally, a company that lives up to the culture it advertises! You don't feel like you're a number or just an employee with Continental; instead, you are allowed to be the CEO of your position and truly make a difference to Continental's work. You will work with bright talent who are all driven to produce results and think outside the conventional ways of how we've done something in the past. The executives are so invested in their employees and take time to get to know and understand who their employees are. It's refreshing to be greeted by name by an executive in the halls because they've taken the time to know their workforce.

    Cons

    It's a fast moving environment and may not fit everyone's style of work. The culture focuses on debate and challenge in order to find new ideas, but it can take some getting acclimated to be accustomed to the openness of challenging ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You hire great talent and allow them to do their job. You are humble and realize you need all your employees to deliver the high level of work; keep treating employees like the individuals they are.

    I worked at Continental Properties Company, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was decent.

    Cons

    The interview process was very quick which should of been my first sign. After I got the offer letter and told them I would start in two weeks as I needed to put it in with my other job, the Assistant Manager asked me if I could start sooner. Should have been my second sign. After I started I came into an office that was behind on so much paperwork along with being short staffed. I was thrown into the daily routine without even finishing my training because I didn’t have time. What a nightmare working there. I had conversations with other employees at different locations who were having the same issue.

    Advice to Management

    Train, train and Train. Have more of a work/life balance for employees.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits that’s it

    Cons

    After hours, expected to do cleaning and leasing and still have time for all the inbetweens

    Advice to Management

    Don’t blame new people for all the issues an older employee does. Workplace harassment isn’t excusable and issues should be resolved through communication calmly not aggressively. I’m so surprised this is one of the best companies to work for.
