    I have been working at Holland Partner Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people … I have met some of my dearest friends while working at Holland.

    The above and beyond benefits! Profit Sharing, Key Associates and last but not least Sabbaticals…yes I’ve had multiple and counting down to another!

    The ability to be creative and have your ideas heard and appreciated.

    A feeling of family, I without question feel as though I am a part of the Holland family.

    Cons

    Wish there was a Kaiser option for medical insurance.

    In some cases if you have been here a long time it seems as though the new hire compensation rate is higher than existing associates salaries, and you can't catch up with the standard increase that loyal associates receive. This may be resolved with standard salary ranges per job titles/level and annual cost of living adjustments.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more scheduling flexibility to associates who have proven they won't take advantage of flexible freedom. One bad apple shouldn't ruin a bunch.

    I have been working at Holland Partner Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Holland is expanding their portfolio which means lots of leasing opportunities

    Cons

    There’s absolutely no such thing as training. The sales certification call is a joke. Holland values earning a profit for the building owners over more than they value employees. We are still waiting for our lease up bonus which corporate has gone silent on. They sale buildings with no real plans in place for the employees that work at those buildings. The housing discount isn’t much of a discount (especially in their buildings in the higher LA market) and it’s not applied fairly at all. Some associates receive up to 50% while others revive just 20% (which makes rent still way more money than a non commission paycheck). They’re also the only company I’ve ever worked for that deducts the amount of concessions out of employees paychecks (again—they value making a dollar for the owners over the well-being of employees). Managers are told to give their employees 3s on their reviews even if their work is clearly that of a 4 or 5 level employee. Up until the very recent hiring of a woman, corporate was made up of all white men (most of whom were buddies with each other at previous companies). Most of the buildings are really pretty to the naked eye but if you have any experience at all you can see design flaws and where corners were cut. Assistant managers aren’t onsite. Instead they have this hot mess of off site people called HCSC which causes so many delays. I could go on and on but basically Holland a changed a lot over the last two years and is no longer a company I would recommend.

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL of your employees like you truly value them. Consider having two different trainings—1 for stabilized properties and 1 for lease ups as those are two completely different experiences. Be honest with your employees. Get rid of HCSC. Diversify.

    I worked at Holland Partner Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Comprehensive training by position by onsite staff and offsite (Corporate Trainers).
    - Nurturing environment with "stepped up" pressure and responsibility added when trainee shows a superior level of proficiency.

    - QUARTERLY PROFIT SHARING PAID OUT TO EVERY EMPLOYEE!!!

    Cons

    - Company growth would likely mean that an open opportunity is available in a state different than the one you live in...

    Advice to Management

    Keep the "our employees are our most valuable asset" philosophy. It has proven to be one of, if not the most important aspects of Holland Partners success!
