    I worked at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The particular branch I worked at was a calm environment great team to work for. Corporate staff is not easy to work with.

    Cons

    Its a Corp. They will run you in the ground with no reward if you let them. All staff at my office had worked hard for over a year and a half and no one had received a raises.

    Advice to Management

    at least acknowledge your staff is doing a good job.

    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time

    Pros

    I can count on 40 hours a week, a dependable paycheck although pay should be more competitive.

    Cons

    The software or servers need improvement. It goes down or is slow slow slow even during the summer months which is the off season. You imagine the frustration when trying to check in guest during high season. Guest are stacked 3 deep in the office just trying to check in which should take a few short minutes but when the server is being difficult or freezes, there is nothing you can do but stand and wait for it to catch up. It is the absolute worse part of the job. Also, because managers are salaried, mine comes in late, leaves for a 2 or 3 hour lunch, returns or maybe not. I have never seen my boss work a 40 hour week since Ive been employeed here. Because of this, I am not disgruntled at all. Please do not misunderstand this. But at this point in time, its almost easier for the manager to work part time and stay out of my way and let me do my job... and sometimes hers.

    Advice to Management

    You are a huge corporation. Put some money into the computer system. Check the IP address, its very easy to see how little managers are working on property.

    I worked at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed talking to the residents. That is about it. Nothing else. Can't think of anything else nice to say.

    Cons

    Unappreciated, crap community managers; only management ideas are good, noone else has any GOOD ideas; employees are not given any decent raises - come on 20 cents! They should be ashamed of themselves. Insurance for hourly employees is an expensive joke.

    Advice to Management

    Take a course on Professionalism!
