    I worked at Irvine Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commissions are good compared to other property management companies.

    Cons

    no growth or direction for Sales specialist, President's Club Structure does not reward top performers/ top revenue generators, Promotions are not about what you do but who you know. Most of upper management acts like a high school clique, no weekends off & holidays in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    Organizational announcements are delivered in an unprofessional & disorganized manner. In one random day they fired over 5 VP's + 100 plus employees and simply sent out a generic mass company email. Commission structure changes are not carefully thought through & greatly affect your top sales performers income & motivation. Please take some time to see who your managers really are & if they are actually qualified to be in the position that they are in.

    Irvine used to be a great company to work for, now it is just a disorganized mess.

    Pros

    Great friendships, competitive pay, good benefits

    Cons

    Loyalty to performing employees are in question. The more someone produces the more they should be compensated. The Irvine Company's questionable decisions are potentially going to cost them top performers. If you are entering into sales then this is a great opportunity. If you are thriving in your current sales environment you should think twice.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in employee retention and not reactive. There are too many valuable employees that are going on to other companies. There will be more that follow if the direction doesn't change.
