    Toxic Leadership SD

    Jan 17, 2023 - Service Manager in San Diego, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get paid. You have benefits, 401k with company matching

    Cons

    San Diego has some of the most toxic leadership in Irvine company. Basically Mean girls who promote their friends to maintain their dictatorship. You are all dispensable. They are forcing the most tenured maintenance employees out the door. The properties are struggling because of the “ great ideas” this leadership has. They don’t care about you, your mental health, or you work life balance. This company was great back when Dave cottage and Tony Sclafanni were in charge. Please look for a maintenance job with another company if you are in San Diego. They sell you this wonderful picture at your interview but once you’re in, it’s the complete opposite. The real problem with employee turnover and these properties failing is sitting at the corporate office. If you are a maintenance leader in SD I highly encourage you to help your asm’s, technicians and porters find a job that will truly value them as employees and people. Irvine use to be people first, now all they care about is their inner circle of toxic leadership. There are plenty of open positions in other companies. We all have contacts in other companies! The grass is greener on the other side! What are you waiting for?

    10 Years with Irvine Company and 20 Years in Property Management

    Dec 6, 2022 - Leasing Manager in San Diego, CA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Training and development is by far the best of any company I have ever worked for. The amount of hours invested into associates of all positions are countless. I appreciate that training and development is available online, virtually, in person, hands on, and one on one with your direct leader or a peer so regardless of learning style, everyone is able to grow and develop. Recognition and celebration by peers and leaders on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual basis through daily huddles, starting meetings off with "wins", 1:1's, CORE platform to post "shout outs", quarterly awards given by colleagues as well as by leadership, Presidents Club Ranking which celebrates quarterly and annual top performers, Impact Award given by the VP, CORE value winner that is chosen based on nominations by colleagues, and Best in Class Awards to name a few. What I like best about the recognition and awards within this company is that awards are given from a peer/colleague level as well as from a performance and result based level, and also by leadership recognition. This allows for all associates to have numerous opportunities to be recognized. Unlike some organizations where it is only possible to be recognized if you fall into a top category. This culture sets Irvine Company apart from others. Leadership within Irvine Company is what has taught be how to be the leader I am today. They lead by example with grace, integrity, empathy, and support. What I value most about our leadership is they provide open and honest feedback, listen and support, give clear direction of the companies vision and goals, and most importantly they value each associate for the unique person they are and the important role they have within the company. Glass door states to "Keep it real" when leaving this review. The 3 examples I gave as pros for working for the company are genuine and true but if you are looking for a more "real" review...here it is...There are multiple property management companies to work for in San Diego, each with their own pros and cons. For me personally, I want to work for the best company, that develops the best associates, that delivers the best customer experience, and that achieves the best results. None of that is possible without a company having the best values, leadership, associates, and product. I am extremely proud to work for Irvine Company and if you are given the opportunity to do so as well, I am confident that you will be too.

    Cons

    As I mentioned in the pros, working with Irvine Company you work with the best of the best. That requires a lot of hard work, dedication, development, and commitment. I enjoy working for an organization with such high standards but if you are looking for an easier job commitment, possibly starting with a smaller property management company with smaller assets might be a better entry into the property management field.

    Toxic Tyrant leader in San Diego

    Nov 28, 2022 - Community Manager in San Diego, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Managers have weekends off, annual bonus every July, online platform avail for trainings.

    Cons

    Top Management in San Diego is untrustworthy. Blatant favoritism towards friends they have as direct reports. Those friends in return seem to do nothing but gossip and throw their extended entitlement. Irvine Corporate turns blind eye to this, and continues to allow toxic leadership aka tyrant. Stay away unless you like a mean girls vibe and working with gossip and drama

    Used to be a good place, now it is draining.

    Aug 10, 2022 - Assistant Community Manager in Irvine, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good name recognition for your resume, decent benefits and pay.

    Cons

    I honestly used to like working here, but management has become so obsessed with technological change (read: micromanaging) and there is a culture of toxic positivity. We cut onsite staff in March 2020, and never recovered. It’s been 2+ years of “good job even short staffed!” It is time to hire more people, but it won’t happen because profits are too good. People are constantly on leave, half because of COVID and half because of burnout due to the short staffing. Instead of making things easier and more efficient, we throw new systems at people that don’t work right, and just expect everyone to smile through it. You get promoted if you play the game, but it puts a lot of incompetent people in leadership positions and keeps everyone in a state of toxic positivity for fear of ruining their career success.
