    I have been working at Gables Residential full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gables is an excellent company. It feels like a big family and you feel welcome. Training when first hired is thorough and informative, continued training and development is available to those that want it, and the opportunity for growth and promotions is definitely available. Pay is average, but the bonuses are amazing. Leasing bonuses are based on mystery shop reports and if you get a top shop you get an extra $200 just for that. Renewals and quarterly bonuses are also paid. There is a huge potential for good salary and growth. Gables cares about it's employees and community.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons. This job came at a very crucial time in my life and I am so thankful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Involving employees in decisions, the launch of Ovations, and the encouragement that all upper management offers is just amazing.

    Pros

    Gables has fantastic core values and truly works to take great care of every resident, and all their employees. They provide decent health and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Raise percentages are very minimal. 401k plan could be much better; they only match 50%. There needs to be more opportunities for increased bonuses.
