    I have been working at Irvine Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Make good money for having fun and being customer centered. Great team environment and energy. Management strives to keep you happy and do not micro-manage as long as you are performing well. Sales Manager, Community Managers, General Managers, Sales Directors, and Senior Directors are all very very cool and listen to any suggestions we have.

    Cons

    Policies constantly change and sometimes make no sense and seem very rushed. Too many specials during the summer ruin onsite teams credibility as they are constantly being extended, then taken away, then extended again. Great company to work for though! And they are much larger than anyone would expect, with that being said it's still a very tight work family within the departments.

  3. "Great Environment but Not Flexible"

    Pros

    A lot of talented employees, positive work environment, and many opportunities for growth. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Not as flexible and innovative as they think they are. No work from home policies. Minimal parental leave.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize its unique financial position and industry leader position to move the commercial real estate industry into a more agile and flexible environment to meet the needs and desires of today's best employees.

    I have been working at Irvine Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, above average hourly pay, great infrastructure, good amenities.

    Cons

    Over worked, not as organized, some service managers demand ridiculous goals, promotions are far too stretched and very limited from a technical point of view, raises are annually and insignificant since it's performance based but managers aren't aware or keep up with the performance or quantity of work of their service techs.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay more attention to detail and be more involved in the day to day maintenance functions so they can assess situations better. Further train in technical aspects to stop depending on vendors when major maintenance or procedures are needed.
