    They Really Need To Watch Who They're Highering & Promoting For Management Or Leadership Material

    Pros

    I love the atmosphere of the beauty of my building and the bond that you develop with your residents. They really make you feel like you are making a difference in their dailly life.

    Cons

    There is a lot of childish behavior being displayed amongst management and their inner clicks! If your not clicked in - you better tread very lightly, because they will turn on you fast. When coming into the company you negotiate a decent pay rate, but it's hard to get a decent raise on your quarterly review if your'e not a favorite. And same thing goes for the bonuses. This place is just like high school and the property manager is like the big kid on campus; with a group of minions watching their backs and causing havoc whenever they feel it's promitable!

    Pros

    Absolutely None at this company. The most political and awful leadership I’ve ever dealt with.

    Cons

    I have been doing this for almost 2 decades and I have had quite a few jobs but in all honesty, this one takes the cake on the worst jobs I have ever held. My supervisor was the most unethical, unprofessional, backstabbing, rude and horrible person I’ve ever dealt with and come in contact with in my 4 decades of being alive, and I don’t say this lightly. From slamming papers to talking behind your back and everything in between, is what I dealt with at this Seattle Hi-rise. Their HR to senior leadership is a complete joke. Their 1980 processes is a another issue that I can write a book about. If you are a creative out of the box thinker, this company is not for you. And if you aren’t, have at it!
