    I worked at Gene B. Glick Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I did make some incredible friends during my time. I was very well trained in all aspects of my jobs and have learned a lot that I still practice today.

    Cons

    I will agree with most comments here about the backstabbing and being in the right clicks. I felt like when I had to push for employee discipline that it was my fault even if I did not make the initial hire.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting from within was the way of the past. It is hard to be promoted from within unless you win the popularity contest. Please reward people who are loyal to you when they have earned it. Stop making good people feel unwanted.

    I have been working at Gene B. Glick Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of employee bonding activities, bake offs, cook offs, community events. Fit time for exercise, great educational and training events. The company is constantly looking for ways to make things better.

    Cons

    There's a bit of an army's way of thinking here that everybody has to step to the same tune. There's also a lot of back stabbing. I can't put my finger on why that's the case but it's pretty thick. People constantly run to their bosses about the smallest things about other people. When I first started working here I was told that it was like that here. I first thought the person was just a chronic complainer or was exaggerating. Now, I see that nope, they were telling the truth.

    Advice to Management

    There are way too many people with huge egos here that get in the way of making improvements in the company.

    I worked at Gene B. Glick Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company works hard to treat employees well. They genuinely care about the people that work for them and want to create a positive work environment. I never encountered a situation where senior leadership wasn't open to helping make things better. If not for external circumstances I wouldn't have left the company.

    Cons

    There is too much power given to middle management and few outlets for those in lower positions to report abuse of power. This is a culture that starts in the corporate office and waterfalls down to the properties.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership should hold middle management to the same standards they are held to. And when employees go to HR or a senior member of the team the situation should be taken seriously and not pushed back to the manager at fault.

    "Maintenance Department"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Gene B. Glick Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the residents at the apartment complex where I worked. It was hard work, but worth it because of the people.

    Cons

    I was bullied and belittled everyday by one person I worked with. Nothing I did was right. I hated leaving, but couldn't take it.

    Advice to Management

    Being low person on the ladder doesn't mean I don't have the right to be treated well by co-workers.

    Pros

    Great benefits! You meet a lot of different people on the properties.

    Cons

    Supervisor was nothing to brag about. Always on his phone with personal calls and giving absolutely NO direction whatsoever..cold never do anything right in their eyes. If only the company knew what what going on at that property.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a close eye on Indianapolis properties more. Your RPM's are clueless!
