I worked at Lynd Company full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Some traveling, meeting a pretty decent amount of good employees.

Cons

Where do I start? As a leasing agent you get no commission on new leases (something every other company offers) but you will receive commission on renewals which is something low like $25 which will be paid to you like 3 months later, but if that resident is late on rent guess what? You receive $0! (Which is total bs) as a assistant manager you're lucky if you receive $15 an hour and if you hit bonus after taxes it's something like $300 so if you hit bonus on all 4 quarters you received a whopping $1200 in bonuses foe the year... They expect so much from their employees but yet fail to show any compensation or thankfulness for your hard work. As a manager you STILL don't get paid the salary of other companies and still get treated like crap because your not really the manager of the property nearly everything you do has to get approval by your regional manager who needs approval from the regional Vice President all to get your resident who's been without a working appliance for a week! Ridiculous! The absolute worst title to have in the company is these poor recent college grads they hire as "special ops" they make them do maintenance, leasing, marketing, and all sorts of other slave labor for what? A potential to become a manager, which has translated into maybe 3 of over 100 of them to actually do so, SOMETHING IS NOT WORKING, GET THE HINT!!!

It's not easy nor fun to work for a company nearly everyone dispies, if your looking for employment look else where. You'll be happy you did.

Advice to Management

You have a lot of very skilled and willing employees that should be given more opportunity and better pay, your company has your family's name in it, honor your name and make it something not everyone curses at as soon as they hear it!

    Pros

    Pay is somewhat OK.. nothing special.

    Cons

    No commissions for leasing agents, DM's only care about money, Very un-organized, People move their way up in the company by being best friends with District Managers.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your DM's.

    I have been working at Lynd Company full-time

    Pros

    They can give you a pay check.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything the other 2 bad reviews said is the straight up truth. Whoever wrote the positive review either was lucky enough to have a good experience are is simply someone from the company adding a good review.

    Bad pay; bad benefits; bad communication; lies; fail to deliver on promises; they prey on college students with "Special Ops" program; they will ask you to lure your friends in for leasing for around 10 bucks an hour; currently they only pay out commissions on renewals and not very much. On their last quarterly call they failed at 4 huge projects yet still slap each other on the back at corporate for their percentages. They are a joke in the industry and will remain so.

    Advice to Management

    You are ruining your reputation with the future leaders of the industry and we do not forget.
