    Current Employee

    Advancement and development severely lacking

    Pros

    Strong company culture and some great people.

    Cons

    Upper management does little in the way of promoting advancement and development opportunities. The portfolio is restructuring staffing, centralizing operations etc. in a way that takes away responsibilities and earning potential, rendering certain full-time roles almost irrelevant. This restructuring also limits advancement opportunities as managerial roles are extremely difficult to come by and competitive to earn.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While we want to encourage our employees to take initiative and ownership of their career growth and professional development, Equity Residential efforts to make our teams aware of promotion and advancement opportunities includes platforms like Job Flashes, inviting all employees to sign up for Job Alerts that notify them of openings that pique their interest, providing training courses and modules both online and through our phenomenal Organization Talent and Development department, and offering programs like Accelerate and Ascent for individuals interested in taking on a management role - just to name a few! And while year end performance reviews are always a great time to discuss potential next steps, we invite both our employees to solicit feedback - and our managers to provide feedback throughout the year - on an ongoing basis. We encourage you to reach out to your manager to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

    * If you're not into customer service, this is not the position for you * Lot's of information to digest at once, but management is very patient and helpful

    Pros

    I love working for Equity. It is a nice workplace, with good people and a supportive environment. There are a lot of people who have worked here for 7+ years. Great work-life balance (I work for the corporate office) and a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    Big company with red type, but besides that part, everything is great
