      Pros

      Good Locations available, Stable job, Some Great residents

      Cons

      No bonus, No commission been with gables almost a year turned a horrible property into 0 work orders fix it up No Bonus No positive words from Upper management Team turnover is crazy, they have potential but plenty of better companies out there in my opinion left my last company an assistant and they took the title away here so I’m not a regular tech doing More office work on top of tech work. No raise not a great place to grow either I got a 5$ bonus once last company would get 200$- 500$ end of each month thought this would be somewhat better

      Pros

      Closed on Sundays. Bonus Structure

      Cons

      No growth opportunities ACM Positions have been eliminated Property managers are hired from outside the company; consequently leaving LPs no room for advancement. Upper management is simply out of touch with reality. There is no room for advancement for minorities. All Leadership levels have no persons of color holding ANY position. The company does not invest in associates growth or development. The regions leadership team consists of two persons who are close friends. You are absolutely disposable as an employee. Extremely low pay. Its 2021. Your employees can barely afford rent with these high prices and small discount.

      Mixed bag

      Jan 15, 2021 - Assistant Community Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Decent commission/bonus structure (but very confusing) -Very structured and organized (if you like structure, you'll thrive here) -Nice properties to work at -Some nice benefits (i.e. Roth 401k) -Good work/life balance -REIT structure is both good and bad. They are tight with purse strings overall, but your bonus is also tied to your property budget, so in a way, it's a good thing -They have lots of fringe benefits type things, these don't really interest me but if you're into that type of thing it's worth exploring -Seems like a well-run company financially speaking -Mostly everyone I deal with is pleasant or friendly -Overall, I do not feel like my job is at risk -Most people I have dealt with are professional

      Cons

      -Very strict, everything is policy-oriented -When you have a question, refer to the SOP -Not much of a company culture to speak of -Very apparent lack of diversity in leadership roles -Health insurance is average, not bad, but not great -Pay is below average in terms of base, but you can make decent money through bonuses/commission if you are focused -Everything is connected to your bonus (this is both good and bad) -Very strict budgets even with higher rent sites (this is a result of the REIT structure, which is good and bad) -Everyone I have interacted with has been in their role for years before advancing if they advance at all. Not sure if this is on the company or a reflection of the employee -The financials seem to come first with Gables. Not a bad thing, but there does not seem to be really much focus on the resident experience if you're on site. You're just expected to provide good customer service but that's about it. -Again, no focus on culture/values. I'm a newer hire and I could not tell you any of the Gables values and really do not have a sense of any culture here -Business professional dress code. This is fine if you are used to it, but I think it's tough to buy these clothes in you're just starting out as an LP.
