    Pros

    I love Gables! I can honestly say that the company taught me everything I needed to know about property management.

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    -They have lots of fun events for employees, such as the spotlight awards
    -You can use the apartment amenities
    -The job itself is relatively easy

    Cons

    -While at first management seems like it is invested in you, in the long run they only watch out for themselves
    -Low pay
    -Lots of managers don't get the right training so they don't know how to properly manage a team
    -Upper management is not very transparent
    -Instead of rewarding top performers, they just set unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    Please take time to train everyone and invest in every one of your employees, rather than seeing everyone just as an number.
