I worked at Lyon Living full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lyon Management Group has a great brand in Orange County, and the leadership at Lyon is very professional and well respected. Positions range from leasing agents to property managers on the property level, and the full spectrum of employees required at a corporate level. They do appreciate their employees, and make a strong effort to make them feel valued at all levels.

Cons

Salary opportunities are somewhat limited and there are not a lot of positions for career Lyon people to break into the corporate office.

Advice to Management

None at this time.

    Pros

    There are multiple employees that have been with the company for a great deal of time. It is commendable for a company of any sort this day and age to keep long standing employees of this long. The benefit structure, regarding healthcare, is one of the better that I've seen. They offer FULL company paid benefits for the employee! Lyon also gives employees a comp day for your birthday which is really great. They do offer the opportunity to complete an employee survey.

    Cons

    Wage is the pits, Highly unacceptable considering the hourly pay rate is so low, the commission structure is terrible and that those onsite are required to work every, single weekend, and most all holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Pay More, people would be happier to come to work and work for the leases if you paid at least 10% for the lease, that isn't asking too much. Offer more flexibility in terms of weekends off to all the employees. It can't be stated that the corporate level "works for the onsite staff" yet they receive NONE of the perks or benefits. Working on the day before AND after major holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas is not conducive to increasing employee morale. Bring back the dry cleaning stipend or at least provide a clothing stipend/allowance or partial uniforms in order to attain for the clothing that you expect your employees to wear, considering that you don't pay enough for them to afford to buy the clothes of the calibre.

    "Good place to start a career in Property Management"

    Pros

    Lyon Apartments is a great place to start a career in property management. They have a very thorough training program that will teach you the ends and outs of leasing, renewals, customer relations, etc. For just about every aspect of property management from Senior Management to Sales, they have a training program, both live and online. Everything you do performance wise is tracked and calculated and can be used to help with feedback during progress reports. Micromanaging is big here, and be ready to be secret shopped on the phone and in person to ensure you are emplementing the closing techniques you learned in training. Senior level management has an open door, and the VP is very visible and personable. They hold annual rec meetings to recognize publicly good work. You can walk away from the meetings with pride, a plaque, and extra money in your pocket.

    Cons

    Can be political. Alot of times, promotions can be given on a "friendly" basis- meaning if you're really cool with a property manager, your guranteed a promotion from the door, although they will still interview others to be fair. PAPER-PUSHERS! This company wastes TONS of paper. Paper that can be recycled never is, and lease and report paperwork is always like a book. Everything is typed up and put in a file, which is good for paper-trailing, but most of the forms that residents have to fill out are never looked at again once they're signed on move in. Hard to balance work and life here. Alot of time you have to bargain for a weekend off, and even then you may not get it. Also, most of the properties in Atlanta are older, and this comes with problems from residents. Be prepared with thick skin, as residents will not expect some of the maintenance issues that come with older properties, ie leaks and HVAC issues. The company holds tight purse strings and will often skimp on supplies for repairs. Summers and winters when the HVAC systems go will yield high work orders. The maintenance staff will be overwhelmed and it'll be a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    -Spend more money on supplies and upgrading the HVAC and plumbing on older properties. The residents and on-site staff won't get burned out so easily.
