    Pros

    Creative thinking is welcomed. Regional and corporate management encourages and supports ideas to make communities/campgrounds better. Dedication is key. If you enjoy connecting with people and have a desire to celebrate community, this is where you should be. You will be challenged, but the good out weighs the bad.

    Cons

    Stress must be managed. Occupancy demands can be very challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting property managers and community events.

    I have been working at Equity LifeStyle Properties full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back, casual and friendly environment.. The location is awesome! The company is making significant improvements to systems and technology across departments. I find the culture to be entrepreneurial and exciting for people looking to bring new ideas to the table and interested in seeing them through.

    Cons

    with employees spread all over the country its not always clear who the right point of contact is. Some systems are outdated which slows down productivity and can take some time to learn.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating for your customers and continue to think about your employees. Keep evaluating benefits, compensation and policies that will make a difference for your employees and help retain talent.

    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.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, employee discounts on camping and rental units at campgrounds.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity due to rapid growth

    Cons

    Upper management promoted due to who's rear end was kissed and definitely NOT their ability. Executive management is an exception, but lots of VP's and SVP's are clueless.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe, just maybe take a glance at turnover and realize a high number does not mean "you won!"

    Pros

    The pay is good, great location downtown.
    Benefits are well paid.

    Cons

    A lot of who knows who here and that's how things are run. Raises aren't based on the amount of work you do.

    Advice to Management

    I've heard that management has shifted and things have gotten a little based on different approaches.
