    I have been working at Lakeshore Management Group full-time

    Pros

    I am a current employee of Lakeshore Management operating a property in Las Vegas NV. I am also a past employee. I started with at Lakeshore Management in 2009. I left for a few years only to find myself wanting to come back. I worked for two very large property management companies while I was gone from Lakeshore. What I did learn is that Lakeshore empowers their people to own the business, meaning they give the on site managers access to financials relevant to the daily operations of the property. In return they hold us accountable for the way the property performs financially as well as the appearance of the property. Upper Management has an "Open door policy" that is a true policy, as an employee we have access from everyone from our Direct Supervisor, to the Director of Operations and The Owner as well, who is very hands on and active in the operations of his company hosting an Annual Conference where they bring the whole company together to learn and get a chance to meet their co-workers in other states. These conferences are held in 4 and 5 star accommodation's costing the employees nothing out of pocket. I have seen several negative reviews from past and surprisingly current employees. My response to that would be - This is not a company for lazy people or people that are just wanting to collect a paycheck. Upper management holds its team "Accountable" for the performance of their properties, rewarding us with Quarterly Bonuses as well as commissions on sales and rentals of homes. Our owner also matches up to 3% of your pay that you can set aside in a 401K account, it is almost unheard of in todays world for a company this size to match your contribution. Medical Dental and Life are also available after a short probationary period. The expectations are made clear during not only the interview process but the on boarding process and training modules. They have camera's in the property offices to keep the employees and residents "Safe" not to "Spy" on the employees. People that hold that mentality must clearly have something to hide. It is my intention to retire here at Lakeshore.

    Cons

    I have no cons to speak of

    Advice to Management

    Hold team interviews for prospects

    Pros

    None, none, none, none, none

    Cons

    Management is dismissive, assigns projects and then won't sit down for results. Quick to point out negatives, never any praise. Terrible pay and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well - by action not just words. Look at your benefit package. The owner and management have different benefits than the workhorses.

    Pros

    There is not a single one to be listed here.

    Cons

    The upper management of this company will lie to you from the minute they meet you at your interview. The turn-over rate for employees is higher than I have e er seen for a reason. The upper management is verbally abusive, and incredibly demanding. They have no qualms about telling you to do things that are illegal, as long as it suits their needs. They even sent out a company wide email asking for volunteers to write good reviews here, but not until they check and edit them! My advice, run far and run fast. This was the most miserable year and a half of my life.

    Pros

    none whatsoever......found management to be abrupt and dissmissive

    Cons

    Think they are experts in the mobile home business and proceed without valuable imput from others with more experience

    Advice to Management

    when you purchase a park, letting all former employees go the minute papers signed, is not in line with company philosophy..

    Pros

    Employees are a pleasure to work with, always meeting new people, always learning something new in the field.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible to work with. No structure in the company. No recognition on what you do for the company. Down talk is a constant issue from senior director. Benefits are horrible. Pay is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with a purpose, acknowledge the good and hard people that work for you. A thank you goes a long way. Do not assume but find out the actual facts. Take care of your employees as they will take care of you.

    Pros

    Some nice people working for them.

    Cons

    So micromanaged, you spend all of your time doing archaic reports (and asked to duplicate them with different departments) that you don't have time to do your job. They expect you to work 60+ hours per week, are distrustful and completely dysfunctional. Salaries are much lower than competitors. They only pay for 50% of insurance for the employee, leaving you to pay 100% of benefits for your family members. Costs too much. It used to be a better company years ago, but grew too quickly and have incompetent managers who truly have no idea what they are doing. Very high turnover due to poor treatment of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down Think strategically instead of running around like chickens with your heads cut off. Treat employees with respect and stop micromanaging.

    Pros

    This is an amazing company to work for! It is in high growth mode, and the environment is very dynamic and moving. If you don't like to work, or be an agent of progress and growth, Lakeshore Management is not for you. There is nothing static about the vision and growth of Lakeshore Management, and the leadership driving the business are people of strong character with extreme passion for what they do for the residents of Lakeshore, as well as the employees of Lakeshore. I have seen nothing short of high expectations for ensuring that all employees are coached and trained from day one, and there is always an open door policy to ask for help.

    Cons

    There are no real cons. What previous reviews twist and distort into cons are merely the normal growth pains all growing companies go through. Again, Lakeshore is not for the timid or lazy employee, and there has to be the right fit between employee and company. We work hard when it's time to get things done, and then relax when the job is done. This is no different than other companies who strive for success in their business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pressing forward! We got your back!

    Pros

    Every day is different, not stuck in an office all day and making your own schedule to meet the community and company needs. Must be a self-starter in a fast pace environment. Multi-tasking is a major plus. Free housing with competitive salary.

    Cons

    Not having weekends off, and no vacation or time off on first/last Saturday of every month.

    Advice to Management

    rotate weekends and holidays with CM
