    I have been working at Home Properties full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Even with the recent acquisition I still enjoy my job. They are clearly trying to cut costs at any chance while attempting to preserve a good quality of life for current employees, at least at the site/regional level. The pay and benefits package are good.

    Cons

    Just not ever sure what will happen next. There's doesn't seem to be a lot of direction with the new upgrade program. While they have not cut pay or any benefits for current employees they have been very slow to fill open positions.

    Advice to Management

    Better planning/communication would help the site employees. Don't stretch your current employees too thin.

    I have been working at Home Properties full-time

    Pros

    Great maintenance staff and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    People are great upfront on the first few weeks of employment, however it seems it is all about who you know in order to move up in the Company.

    No room for growth, so be prepared to stay in a current position forever as they hire outside instead of within the company.

    Holiday schedule stinks. You get the day off they want you to take instead of asking what widths for you.

    Advice to Management

    People will make mistakes, forgiveness is everything. Assistant managers should train more as that is what they are there for. There is no asking question, because you should know everything.

    I worked at Home Properties full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full time, benefits, co workers

    Cons

    Lack of respect from higher management for what some do for the company. Some have their favorites, it's quite obvious. No surprise when it starts at the top and trickles down to people that look up to this person as a role model to do what's right. Culture and values, a lot of talk and focus but no follow through!

    Advice to Management

    Step back before your hard working employees are similar to residents. As in they won't be staying long! Ed was great a once highly recognized real estate co will become nothing but a disastrous slum lord after its sale to an investment co that dipped it's hands into the unknown being uneducated in the business!
