    I have been working at Furnished Quarters full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Guest Service Attendants don't have to stand for 8 hours!!! Pretty chill vibe for the most part. Cool management.

    Cons

    Guest Service Attendant is really bellman, reservation agent, housekeeping dispatch, engineering dispatch, and concierge. The pay is okay to have all these different duties, but it can get to be a bit much at times.

    I have been working at Furnished Quarters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A warm and friendly place to work where everyone is encouraged to learn and grow. Feels like a family but has the structure and benefits in place of an established company. Everyone here gets noticed if they perform well. Input encouraged from all ranks and lacks office politics of most other organizations. Growing company so feels like there are options to move into other roles, departments or expand responsibilities in current role. Ideas are welcomed and encouraged. Lots of support and kudos for job well done.

    Cons

    Since it's not a huge company, sometimes there isn't the opportunity to move up any further within a department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing all the special events, celebrations, sharing of jobs well done that make for a happy work environment.

    Office politics, if the top tier doesn't like you regardless of how good of a job you're doing you will get fired.

    Pros

    Furnished Quarters is a great company to work for. It's small enough that it still has a family feel and a terrific corporate culture. FQ regularly promotes from within and as a result, there is opportunity for advancement and to grow with the company. They value their employees and work-life balance is excellent - a big plus in often "too big and too corporate" NYC!

    Cons

    None that I can think of off-hand.

    Pros

    Great balance between work/personal life even in a sales environment. The owners are very hands on and know everyone by name. The company is small enough to where you aren't just a number but large enough to where advancement is possible.

    Cons

    Would like if the office had more windows.

    Pros

    This company provides an opportunity for growth and knowledge within the corporate housing field. A great place to be employed with. Seems as if each employee was hand crafted to make the perfect team.

    Cons

    While working here can be busy at times it’s as fun as hanging with your friends. All work and no play is definitely not the motto of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, remain sincere and continue to value your employees.

    I have been working at Furnished Quarters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company offers the opportunity to work for the largest and best in class provider of corporate housing in the industry. Office culture is collaborative and everyone loves being in hospitality, customer service business. Owners and exec team are very supportive of employees. Paid time off is in a total bank system so if you're someone who does not use sick time, you can use those days for vacation. Everyone really cares about each other and works cohesively.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons in all my years at Furnished Quarters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fantastic work. Continue to build teams with promotions from within along with ongoing education and development to make team members the best they can be.
