    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great to work with people in Communities but the atmosphere in Merit is very Negative and very Hostile. Difficult personalities all over the place from Board Members to Management telling you how bad of a person you are. Most of the time you come home feeling depressed and frustrated.

    Cons

    The Negativity can be overwhelming and Management isn't approachable to deal with problems. It's you against everyone else. Big turnover.
    I think Merit has lost touch with their Employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your Employees more and appreciate them.

    Pros

    Nice people work there for the most part. It is a nice environment. You do have a lot of autonomy. If you do a decent job, there are not a lot of people looking over your shoulder constantly. There are many people who have been there for a long time, because it's a fairly family environment, although that seems to be changing in recent times.

    Cons

    The property management industry is difficult in general, so I am not sure it is Merit's "fault" but there is a lot of negitvity. You are dealing with cranky people day and day out. It can be a difficult industry.

    Advice to Management

    People need to be paid better for a job well done!
