    Pros

    Excellent managing / Fair minded / Appropriate wages - Salaries

    Cons

    Requiring Real Estate License for a Resident Manager

    Advice to Management

    You will miss qualified Resident Managers with this requirement. For many year Resident Managers have been highly productive managers without a real estate license.

    I worked at EAH full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Provide much-needed housing to lower income individuals. Properties are generally very aesthetically pleasing.

    Cons

    Some members of senior leadership are unqualified and threatened by strong employees. Resident Services are the lowest priority and should be outsourced to an organization that cares them. Some Property Managers are exceptionally great, but many are exceptionally inept. The demands on capable employees are amazingly low. I know of several employees that would not show up to work or take 2-3 hour lunches on a regular basis and were able to get away with it. Other employees struggled mightily with their work, but were not provided adequate support or removed from their positions if unable to perform.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your core competency, real estate development. Partner with a strong agency (or agencies) to provide resident services, your residents and organization will be better off for it. Find a strong leader for your real estate management division and do some major house cleaning. Identify the hidden gems and reward them for their performance. Get rid of those that aren't able to perform. These people set the tone of the communities that your residents call home and many of your residents deserve much better than they are getting.

    The company offers very good benefits including a FitBit to all employees.

    Cons

    Pay, no support, poor leadership

    Advice to Management

    The entire Hawaii portfolio leadership should be replaced, both California transplants and locals. California corporate needs to follow up on concerns from past employees.

    I worked at EAH (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, many employee events and incentives. There are quite a few wonderful supervisors. Many training opportunities and there are potential annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Senior management is pretty removed from property managers. The amount of paperwork can be overwhelming without assistance. There is obvious favoritism and nepotism. Compensation is not commiserate with workload.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, recognize employees for a job well done, find ways to assist managers who are new or falling behind. If an agreement is made, honor the commitment. Make staff retake diversity training

    Pros

    TEACHES ALOT, 403B MATCH OFFER DAYS OFF.

    Cons

    The company creates reports which are repetitive, they also tend to throw projects at you and what them done at that moment. Also they don't respect your time and want you to stop running your property to do what they want.

    I worked at EAH full-time

    Pros

    This is an amazing mission driven company to work for with a rock star of a CEO pushing for new ground in affordable housing. I loved working in the communications department with a team that quickly became my close friends. I was encouraged to cross train in different elements of my communications and advocacy roles and I always felt appreciated and supported. I believe that I was paid a very competitive wage and was rewarded with several merit based bonuses throughout my time with EAH Housing. Many folks at EAH have been employed for over 20 years and it is definitely a company that supports career longevity. I could not give a higher recommendation for EAH Housing.

    Cons

    At times interdepartmental communications and cooperation could have been improved to better expedite projects serving the core aspects of business for EAH Housing (Development, Management and Advocacy of Affordable Housing).

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to hold to your core values and invest in your employees. You created an awesome environment for your staff at all levels to succeed and progress.

    Pros

    Attentive to employee training. Generous sick time where used time carries over to each year. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    Lower wages then industry standard. Third party management contract was lost no severance was given.

    Advice to Management

    HR needed to be more pro-active for exiting employees. Transition did not go well when the management agreement was terminated.
