    Pros

    Edward Rose & Sons is a company that offers a variety of positions ranging from entry level, to management and corporate level careers spanning across many states throughout the US. I find it comforting to work for such a large, well-established, and stable company. Knowing that they've been around since 1921 and are ever expanding gives me a sense of security that not every company can provide. There are opportunities for advancement based on your job performance, desire to advance and availability. I began working for Edward Rose in 2001 as a Leasing Consultant; I progressed to an Assistant Property Manager and eventually was promoted to Property Manager. This company gave me the opportunity to be as successful as I chose to be. I feel extremely fortunate to have found a career within a company who values their employees and often promotes from within.

    Cons

    They have no communities in Hawaii. I would really enjoy managing a community in Hawaii.

    I have been working at Edward Rose & Sons full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been employed with Edward Rose and Sons for almost 9 years. I started as a leasing agent and now I am a Property Manager for one of our Michigan properties. I have enjoyed this journey with the company. I have overcome many challenges but what position doesn't have them. If you work hard, set goals and most importantly evaluate yourself while achieving those goals your hard work will not go unnoticed. The company's desire is to promote within first, once your foot is in the door the opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    There really aren't any downsides to the company. At one point one of the benefits for onsite Property Managers was a free apartment and utilities. That has changed for some positive reasons, that's something I will miss. However, they have compensated in other areas and it has balanced itself out.

    I worked at Edward Rose & Sons full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You learn a lot about customer service because you will meet people from many different cultures and situations.

    Cons

    You only learn a lot about customer service because managers are lazy and afraid to help angry residents so you have to be the middle man. Hard work does not pay off at this company and positive reinforcement is nonexistent. This company has an extremely high turnover rate because employees are made to feel they have no value. This is a bad company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Do you job and show your employees more appreciation. Understand when a resident wants to talk to a manager you need to speak to them instead you tell a member of their staff what to say to them.

    I have been working at Edward Rose & Sons full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love working for Edward rose! I feel like I'm always being challenged throughout the year with new responsibilities or learning new software/policies. It pushes me to be the best I can be. I love that the PTO is accured with EACH biweekly paycheck that can accumulate more the more hours you work. The core values of the company are just ethically respectable & have such a great reputation that speaks volumes. I definitely would love to grow with this company but I have a two year old and it would be hard since management requires you to travel. If it didn't I would highly consider joining! They treat their employees awesome & that's why so many have stayed with this company for decades. I just wish their were more properties in Ohio so I could transfer to a better thriving city.

    Cons

    Management requires you to travel which is great for anyone who is single and doesn't have any or a lot of kids. Smaller communities have less employees so the ones they have more responsibility to work harder to make sure goals are met within a deadline.

    Advice to Management

    Do not belittle any of your staff or residents. It's bad for business. Always keep friendships separate from working relationships. That can get messy.

    I have been working at Edward Rose & Sons full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I started with this company at 19 years old with no experience in leasing/property management. I honestly didn't even know if I would like it. Its been almost 7 years and I am still here loving what I do everyday. I wholeheartedly believe that the company provides all tools necessary to be successful, as long as you put the hard work in. I also fee that hard work and dedication does pay off within this company. I feel that no matter where you start out in the company, there is always room for growth and advancement. If you take advantage of the opportunities provided to you then there is no limit to how far up in the ladder you can go.

    Cons

    I have no cons at this time.

    I have been working at Edward Rose & Sons full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In top 20 companies, U.S., professionals move up fast, promote within to any position.
    Aggressive training, clear company policies as guidelines.

    Cons

    There are no negatives, if employees feel negative, they are encouraged to
    use the support group, their team, that is readily available to them.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the "hands on", personal relationship with out of state employees.

    Pros

    Employer rewards hard work, honesty and integrity. Employment manual states, "an hour's work is expected for an hour's pay" and the company recognizes and promotes those who abide by that statement. Over six years with Manifold Services at this point, and I anticipate being with them for many more to come.

    Cons

    Fully paid health insurance would make the company much more competitive for professionals who may choose to be involved in other industries. While employees have a very good chunk of health insurance paid for, premiums get expensive when trying to cover children and other family members.

    Pros

    Company of sincere professionals that serve as tremendous back up to help each other achieve company goals.

    Cons

    There are no negatives, if an employee feels this, they should reach out to their support group, overcome it and be confident moving on.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose touch with employees, especially out of town managers.

    Pros

    Discount on rent, pto earned as soon as you start with the company, decent health insurance covered, potential growth if you join management program

    Cons

    Your discount is off of current market rent so it doesnt come out to that much, if you decide to join the management program you have to relocate to wherever they decide to put you... You dont have much say
