    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The support from corporate is amazing! Training is mandatory but always fun and exciting!
    There is an internal university within the company which is helpful. Learning and Development Department is awesome!
    Upper management work with you!

    Cons

    Not being able to have relatives in supervisory positions. Families tend to work at resorts from a young age and these individuals are well rounded for promotions and the knowledge and experience they bring can not be matched!

    Advice to Management

    Change hiring policies to allow upward mobility for local families.

    I worked at Equity LifeStyle Properties part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best reasons I did like the job is the people. I enjoyed working with the residents and helping them. Some of the employees were understanding and respectful.

    Cons

    The downside was some of the people at the office. I was treated with disrespect by some of the employees. I was yelled at by a female employee.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I have to management is to only charge the correct rate for rent and not increase rent for no reason. There was one resident who had to move away because her rent went up. It went up and her family's income never changed. Rent was based on income.

    Pros

    The supposed quarterly managers meetings, that really don't happen quarterly. At least you get to meet with the other managers and there is an attempt, at least at those meetings, to try for consistency in policy, at least for those two days.

    Cons

    Too many to list, lots of great managers resigned over the last year and it is really too bad that we are not afforded an exit interview. In all the years I was there not one formal review was ever conducted. You are expected to work all kinds of hours and though there is a yearly bonus it is dependent on whether your rm or vp likes you, it certainly isn't based on the amount of revenue brought in by the manager. Too top heavy in management which lends to constant change of plans for future movement of the property.

    Advice to Management

    Try to treat your good, productive, caring managers the way that you want to be treated or must be being treated if you continue to stay and move up the ladder.

    Pros

    there are absolutely no pros to this job

    Cons

    Equity LifeStyle Properties is a company of slumlords who take advantage of elderly, sick, and underprivileged. The properties owned by ELP are dilapidated and unsafe. the water to the units is often off turned off. You do not want to be a part of this company. It is not worth it. they expect you to be cruel and heartless as all of their managers are.

    Pros

    Nice compensation and commission package.

    Cons

    You would swear this is a brand new company. New directives given regularly with no thought as to how to carry them long term. Property managers are nothing more than scapegoats for these misguided plans that go awry. Micro-managed to the teeth with no input appreciated by VP. Shady goings on from upper management that are hidden from others at that level. P. Managers are used as the person thrown under the bus by the VP as things go wrong. Employees walk on egg shells daily as others take the blame for the VP's shortcomings. More stress than any employee should have to go through. Employees afraid to speak up for fear of being fired.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate your upper management and their dealings.
