I have been working at Equity Residential full-time

Pros

Stable company with solid earnings. Job security in that sense.

Cons

Upper management does not care fot the employees. Pushs everyone for results but does not supply them witj the tools to acjieve these results. The attitude is "you are lucky to have a job" and "you are replaceable." This cause unsaid threats cause employees to work overtime off the clock to kerp their jobs.

Advice to Management

Work in the field to get a true gage of whats happening im your market.

    I have been working at Equity Residential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff is nice and they're nice to you as long as you do your job.

    Cons

    Company has removed many positions from the properties including Assistant Managers and Customer Service Reps leaving more Administrative work on Leasing Consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Stop raising employee rents at your property. You treat your employees like every other tenant and raise their rent the same amount. How can we afford to live where we work when raises don't even come close to be able to afford the rent increase.

    Pros

    Benefits, Benefits, Benefits! 401 K and company benefits (investing and insurance) are all great!

    Cons

    Depending on the market conditions whether or not they stay or sell!

    Advice to Management

    Hire me back! I am an over-achiever and exceed my goals. #1 for 8 years in investor portfolio. I'm searching for the best company to work for right now. I have been in the business for over 15 years as a property manager! I was with EQR for half of that time.
