    I have been working at Gables Residential full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture is amazing. You feel valued as a person. Also the people are like family. Additionally, the recognition program and training are excellent. Much of the training is online. The benefits are above what I have seen at other companies and they have a long tenure sabbatical plan if you stay around. There is an open door policy at all levels as well. I would highly recommend this company to others.

    Cons

    The challenges are the same as with any company that deals heavily with people (even family has issues now and then). However, Gables has a regularly emailed survey that can be utilized to express concerns if an issue arises. The survey is anonymous and I have seen action take place if an issue arose that needed attention.

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

    Pros

    Employees were able to receive discounts on things like car rentals, concert tickets and cell phone packages (with exceptions). You were also able to accrue PTO as you worked.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no such thing as work-life balance at this company - unless you are a property manager or higher level executive. You have to work three out of the four weekends a month and make $10 an hour while you do it. My manager would leave early every day and leave me to handle the property alone for more than four hours. We were busy! I needed the help.

    Advice to Management

    Check on your managers. I bet they aren't all working as hard as you think. Also, hire more leasing consultants to share the weekend responsibility. They would like to have a life just like you!

    Need to hold your managers and other staff members more accountable, clearly if other staff members have to do other people jobs that mean something is wrong.
