    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties

    Pros

    Freedom to be a true Manager without being Micro-Managed, being able to live on the Resort to help compensate the true role of the Manager working so many hours. Great Leadership and will help you through all needs.

    Cons

    Some locations are remote and have difficulty getting contract repairs done on the parks.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Being part of a new wave of leadership within the company who are driven to improve processes as well as product.

    Cons

    The systems are very antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Upon hire there are several immediate online training courses as well as Compass, however I think it would be beneficial to offer training &/or overview videos on systems. Instead of just issuing credentials & expecting that the user will just figure it out.

    I worked at Equity LifeStyle Properties

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent hours - paid vacations and holidays.

    Cons

    No structure, no help from corporate and no help in improving the properties.

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on with your properties, Manager's are getting away with anything and everything. Properties are falling apart, and no money is being reinvested into the properties. Also, company needs to pay their employees what they are worth, and promote from within

    Pros

    ELS is particularly flexible, with a strong support system for those entering from other management industries. Corporate side is very well organized, while still supporting my entrepreneurial spirit. ELS has been a great company thus far.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is no good reasons to come on board or stay with ELS. Lawsuits, top heavy management and unethical practices is the ELS way and its only getting worse.

    Cons

    They mistreat and are very disrectful for ALL their employees that work for there properties. Extremely high turn over rate!!Management would rather invest their money in purchases of new properties than maintaining and improving there 400+ properties.

    Advice to Management

    Restucture. Restucture. Restructure if you want to get out of the red and stay out.

    I worked at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A good place to work if you want a short term job, Park was nice with a beautiful lake

    Cons

    Low pay, total lack of respect from upper management, only went by hear say Expected you to work 24 /7 with no additional help, upper mangement only cares what can you do never wants to give back to their parks unless it a high dollar making park, gives you little equipment, never follows through with what they say, its a wonder why equity has such a turn over in management, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up ask questions, listen to your employees

    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working with people in a beautiful community on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Micro management and very little support or consistency on a senior manangement level. Requesting time consuming reports in short periods of time that are not even used, creating undue levels of pressure. Growing to fast to support the properties they do have.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your best asset. Micro managing and unrealistic demands on financial return on an investment you are not investing in is unrealistic and sets us all for failure. Invest in the property and invest in your employees and you'll have the best company - with the best returns ever!
