    I worked at Gables Residential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I been working with Gables Residential (full time) almost two years.

    Gables Residential is a great company! The company provides great benefits and amazing bonuses. I enjoyed my time working with the DC region. They truly took care of their employees.

    Cons

    Poor training. Only advice I recommend is more one-on-one training to help associates achieve their goals. Perhaps mentoring programs.

    I have been working at Gables Residential part-time

    Pros

    Amazing benefits!
    Really great training. They cover all the bases and make you feel confident in your skills .

    Cons

    If you fail your secret shop, you do not get any bonuses for the month. It is pass/fail, no in between, which I thought was a little extreme.
    If you work for a smaller property, you usually work by yourself a lot, which can get lonely.

    Advice to Management

    For employees that usually work alone, try and mix things up and send them to a larger property at least once a week so that they can meet more members of the company.

    I worked at Gables Residential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The bonus structure is a lot better than other companies I have worked for, and you are not alone at your property. Awesome lync system that keeps you connected to people all over the states if you have questions. Saved my butt when I first started, so I didn't have to hound management on their time off. IF .. BIG IF your team is awesome than it can be a great company to work for because they are structured a lot better than other companies I have been with. Plus they are paperless and the software isn't too bad.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? My region is ran by individuals that don't take the time to get to know you as a person and purely believe what they read or hear. The hilarious part of that is that the employee(s) in question were fired when I left the company for the things that I had issues with. You are but a small finish in their big pond, and they make you feel that way. Again this might be a region thing, but I was on a boat that was sinking and I never once felt I could come up for air or help. I always felt used, emotionally abused, not worth anything within my position and just like anybody could dictate my character because my word meant nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and when I mean listen, I mean truly hear their side of things. Just because things have always been done the way they have, and your regional management has always been a certain way.. doesn't mean it's right. Management and corporate shouldn't be allowed to treat people like they are lower than dirt, and act however they want. They should be held to the same standards as those on the ground level.

    Pros

    The structure and training in the beginning was great, small family feel in the beginning.

    Cons

    No growth potential, top heavy, the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. In the Tampa region they pretty much do what ever they want, I have experienced multiple fair housing law violations and discriminatory practices.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to what other regions are doing . Get back to basics and treat everyone team member like they matter. Restructure your HR department and instead of getting one side of a story, get everyone together and hear them out.
