    Pros

    Nice buildings with free soda and coffee.

    Cons

    For the past three years - the company has become very political and a very cold environment. Everyone from the CEO to HR has become harsh and it appears that they have forgotten what previously made them a good company- their people. Benefits cost are becoming a burden on employees, employees seem to be set-up and fired, their is a lack of employee voices being heard, employees are treated harshly and expected to work more than 10 hours per day and weekends.

    Exciting company for anyone in finance and development but accounting positions were not so great.

    Pros

    Its an exciting company to work for if you're involved on the finance or development side of things. They show great promise and continued growth. They totally dominate most of the markets that they are in.

    Cons

    Located in Buckhead, where traffic is a nightmare but they're right on the buckhead marta station. The employee review process was broken. Your bonus was not based on how well you performed. It was tied directly to the company's overall performance, which actually wasn't the worst thing since the company had done well while I was there. But the issue was that your performance review literally did not matter. We had the ability to work from home but were rarely allowed. I don't know if this has changed since I've left. Most people on the accounting side were unhappy and starting to look for other jobs by the time I had left. Lots of people spent their entire careers at the company and were overlooked for senior positions, which were given to outside hires. This had a large effect on the employee morale for people in accounting.

    Pros

    The majority of the people are nice to work with and promote a good work environment.

    Cons

    Their HR department was rude and never helpful in my experience. I complained about inappropriate behavior exhibited by my manager and it was never addressed by HR.

    Pros

    Focused on teambuilding and customer service. They invest thousands of dollars annually for employee training. Until 2019 we had free medical insurance.

    Cons

    I have only worked for three other management companies. Cousins takes the time to get things right the first time.

    Pros

    This is an amazing company to work for. They truly stand behind their core values and it continues to lead the company to succeed and grow. Great benefits, pay, management is approachable and willing to listen. Management encourages growth and is willing to pay to advance careers. If you work hard for this company, no matter your title, it will be noticed.

    Cons

    Sometimes the process to get things improved can be slow.

    Building Engineer

    Pros

    Good properties to work at. Mostly great people to work with. Very professional company with their $#!% together. Upper management relatively approachable. Notice hard work.

    Cons

    Low pay for industry standard. They say its compensated by the benefits, which looses its luster after you hear that so often. Building Engineers are locked into very strict levels (ex. Level I, II, III). Management is too focused on keeping engineers in those boundaries.

    Disconnect between Atlanta and other locations

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn and take classes; fairly generous PTO schedule.

    Cons

    HR and Accounting are absolutely AWFUL!! The benefits packages is a joke - they pay your monthly premiums if you do medical screenings but they only have High Deductible plans and the single person annual deductible is $3250!! This totally discourages people from going to the doctor and is the exact opposite of what they are trying to accomplish wit the "wellness" program. Atlanta is the HQ and they do an awful job of communicating with the other markets. Management seems to have it's head in the sand!

    Pros

    The company culture overall is extremely positive. Everyone from the President of the company, the CEO and other executives, down to the support staff, is very pleasant to work with. There is also opportunity for growth within many departments.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have more companywide events/functions for employees.
