    Pros

    Friendly, charitable and forgiving. The company is over 50 years old but still always looking for ways to improve. Family like.

    Cons

    They don't take employee opinions on location or property but place employees based on their opinion. Glass ceiling for growth beyond business manager.

    Pros

    Not only do they provide the best tools in training, marketing, and management, but they also provide the best onsite management for the neighbors that live onsite! It is truly a company about all its people. Employees, neighbors, and vendors!

    Cons

    That every owner is not hiring Lincoln as their fee Managment company. Lincolns reputation speaks volumes about what they can offer them as well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Lincoln Property Company full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of any.

    Cons

    I worked at a takeover property. From inception, there was no real support from regional management, and the regional manager was away for weeks, offering absolutely no support to our property. Bills were not getting paid, promises were not being delivered, resident (neighbor) service requests were not being fulfilled and the phones would ring off the hook with service requests and complaints day in and day out. I even offered to volunteer in the service department, conpleting the simpler tasks. It was really that bad.

    Perhaps, there were well over 100 unfulfilled service requests, and the back log was at the very least 1.5 -2 months. I would attribute this to only having 3 service personnel for a 400 unit apartment community, and very poor systems in place. It was a very reactive, versus a proactive environment.

    To top it off, amenities were closed and rents were raised. Despite those factors, the renewal retention rate remained high .

    Ultimately, entire days were spent on service requests issues and very little time left to complete other projects. Ironically, management was completely overwhelmed, yet, their set standards only applied to the front line.

    I've never ever seen a system where there are extreme double standards, the leaders have zero accountability, and their employees take all the blame for extremely flawed systems. Their arrogance in claiming to be the premier property management company is appalling and alarming: they are extremely ruthless, unethical and possess too many loose ends in their operational and organizational systems which do not promote a productive or positive work environment. Then, they act as if they are the industry's very best and have zero tolerance for anyone presenting valuable ideas to improve their systems.

    That job was literary killing me, and I'm so happy to no longer be there. It was by far the worse employment experience.

    My analysis is Lincoln Property Co has an Orwellian system which displays beautiful images that are simply devoid of any real substance. I would not walk, but rather run from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and don't use employees as your sacrificial lambs to cover your shortcomings and poor performance to dodge bullets from the owners. It might be in your best interest to offer exit interviews to gain a greater insight as to what is really occurring at your properties. As the saying states, the truth is often somewhere in the middle.
