    Pros

    Plenty of paid holidays
    Schedule is semi flexable for managers
    Stable job

    Cons

    Executive Property Management team has worked together for a long time. "Outsiders" are not welcomed. New ideas often die a quick death. Pay is low. Raises are low. No incentive or performance bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Do not refer to site personnel as "in the trenches" is that somewhere you would like to be? Be quick with praise and slow with complaints. Be sure your employees have the tools & decision making power to do the job well.


  2. "Leasing"

    Pros

    Not really any pros that I can list

    Cons

    Terrible treatment from property managers!! This is the reason why I left.

    Advice to Management

    If you want results- change the way you treat people.

    I worked at Cunat Inc part-time

    Pros

    There really aren't any pros to working for this company unless you live at one of their properties to receive a rent discount.

    Cons

    There is no trustworthy resource in either the corporate office or at individual properties. There is an overwhelming sense of having to watch your own back at all expenses. Expect nothing more than the bare minimum in terms of wages, there is almost no opportunity for raises or advancement, benefits are well below average and non-existent to any part-time or seasonal employee, the treatment of staff at all levels is horrendous at best, and you better be prepared for falsified HR write-ups/warnings.

    Corporate management cares about one thing -- their own comfort and security. And unless you share a last name, or extensive history, with the owner, you are worth less than the dirt on their shoes.

    Who could possibly want to work or live like that?

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Stop treating your employees like indentured servants and spies. Before you threaten or raise your standards for your employees, take a good long look in the mirror and better your own behavior.


  4. "Property Mis-Management"

    Pros

    If you like working in customer service this is the job for you. Being a leasing consultant is not a bad job, and it can be fun. I know, I have worked at better companies. Working for Cunat was another story. I guess the only benefit is a semi flexible schedule...if you like working holiday weekends (when no one comes into the office!)

    Cons

    Low morale
    Low pay compared to other companies
    Benefits are not anything to brag about
    Lack of updating apartments (makes it hard to rent)
    But the worst is that upper management changes the rules all the time! Just when you get used to something BAM it changes and that way is no longer correct. Leasing an apartment is not rocket science so do not make it out to be!

    Advice to Management

    You make employees "survey" competing properties, so why not start acting like them? Also, if you invest a little money in updating properties renting apartments would be easier, and you would not have to yell so much when occupancy is down.


  5. "Overall, a good company to work for."

    Pros

    The company gives back to the community, is positive and upbeat, and, for the most part, professional

    Cons

    None really other than in slow economic times, like many other companies, the company may need to downsize, thus there is the risk of employees being let go.

    Advice to Management

    When layoffs emerge, be honest with your employees and look for ways to avoid or minimize layoffs; for example, job sharing or reduced hours, voluntary time off, etc.

    Pros

    Discounts on apartments for employees and a good amount of holidays...although they have cut that short by not including a weekend in holidays (like if the holiday is Friday you may still have to come in on Saturday).

    Cons

    Salary is low for what is expected of you. Benefits are very basic at best. They continue to increase the health and dental insurance and provide a basic 401k. It would have been nice to have some extras like longer maternity leave or tuition assistants.
    The CEO is too young to be managing a company. It doesn't matter if you have an MBA from a fancy school...if you do not have experience you will not make good decisions! Upper management doesn't care about employees just as long at the apartments are filled...by any means necessary. Praise is not easily come by.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees working at the apartments, as they know and understand first hand the challenges and opportunites that occur. Managment is all too concerned with buying new properties and making a profit. They tend to turn their head when their older properites need work (never in the budget) and blame the employees for not working hard enough.

    I worked at Cunat Inc full-time

    Pros

    insurance is good
    Dental is good

    Cons

    The executive Management team is very clickish...they will do anything to help their "favorites" in the company. You can never do anything right... the rules change all the time....so you can never be certain how to do things. They Manage by fear and intimidation. No raises for years. The reporting of inaccurate numbers cost many people their jobs after the sale of their properties.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fair
