    I worked at Lynd Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Above average salary - you will work for that

    Cons

    Reduced incentives for renewal commissions and new leases
    Do not care about their residents - allowed /expected to live below standards
    No communication ever concerning anything important

    Advice to Management

    Employees need to hear from cooperate on occasion to know they are doing a good job. Network with other management companies regarding average structure for commissions - a percentage is cheap. Goals need to be realistic based on true market values not fluffed unattainable goals.

    I have been working at Lynd Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company certainly cares about its image and believes that its employees bestow a direct reflection upon it. Salaries are competitive and superiors definitely back their employees. Also, great systems are in place to follow and allow for superior success.

    Cons

    Bonus structure is a bit unfair by not considering disputable anomalies. Also, some standard operating procedures are a bit dated and lack clarity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I appreciate that you recognize your employees who work hard and follow the applicable systems and value your continued support.

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

    Pros

    This company is about structure. This can be good and bad, but overall I think I enjoyed it.

    Cons

    Sometimes the structure makes it difficult to do what's best for your property, not all properties work with the one size fits all approach.

    Pros

    Can't think of any

    Cons

    Under paid, over worked, corporate office does not care about onsite staff, the training of we great years ago but when a long term employee left the training became laughable.

    Advice to Management

    When I first joined Lynd in 2008 it was an amazing company that valued their employees.


  9. "Worst apartments ever"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Pros

    Roof over my head

    Cons

    We just signed a lease for an apartment in Benbrook, Hillstone Trinity Oaks, and it is the absolute worst. They allowed us to move in without warning that the air conditioning (central air) was not working in our apartment. The toilet is wobbly and you cant sit on it without it pretty much falling over. And the floor boards in the bathroom...oh wait there aren't any! When we moved in they just casually mentioned that that cleaning people decided not to show up so the maintenance guy did the best he could to clean the apartment. The drains were so backed up that I had to go buy draino just to take a shower. There's always loud music and cops outside so we'll have to get soundproof curtains if we want to have any hope of sleep. They said they would have the bathroom toilet and floorboards fixed a week ago, clearly that didn't happen. And the air conditioning "a week or two" which probably means never. Please help! I know y'all are the ones that manage the property and we signed a year long lease with all of these things being hidden from us.

    Advice to Management

    Actually fix the problems

    Pros

    Still noodling on this one....

    Cons

    Promotions and salary increases are very political. Have to fight tooth and nail, and even then, don't get your hopes up.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and compensate them at market value. All of them. Not just the ones with fancy titles or degrees. Take care of the ones that have weathered the storm with you through thick and thin.
