    I have been working at Picerne Military Housing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Owned and Operated by an extremely driven and compassionate individual that cares about his employees
    Expanding business and growth opportunities
    Good benefits package
    Able to make a difference in people's lives

    Cons

    Other than Senior Management, not a lot of job growth potential for lower/mid level employees.
    A lot of departments that don't communicate/work well with each other
    Senior management works its own bubble; makes a lot of decisions on future of company without input from lower/mid level management

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate current managing practices
    Open up lines of communication between departments
    Top half of the company continues to get heavy while mid/lower levels continue to get lighter

    I worked at Picerne Military Housing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for the men and women of the Army was a very fullfilling job. It gave me an oppurtunity to give back to those service members and their spouces.

    Cons

    It was very time demanding, not leaving much room for work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    It wouldnt hurt to make oncall duties easier on the maintenance staff.

    Pros

    benefits are great! The company has not increased the portion of health cost benefits for the last three years!

    Cons

    Many of the locations are located in rural places.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The company has a great attitude towards their goal and customers which is helping military families by improving their quality of life. Good events for residents involving carnivals, poool parties, dog events, etc. Even better events for employees, have frequent giveaways ranging from a gift certificate for their company logo shirt to a 50 inch tv.

    Cons

    Picture high school all over again. I mean all the way to the upper management, there are cliques like you wouldnt believe. I know its common and expected at most job but this was ridiculous. If you are going to work there start kissing butt and commenting on how good your managers new shoes look.

    Advice to Management

    Grow and pair and get rid of the skanks. You have some really good people and would be soaring above all others if you got rid of the dead weight.

    Pros

    Pays well, hours are reasonable.

    Cons

    Management is not typically selected or promoted due to merit or capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your leasing, neighborhood, and maintenance staff with more respect. We're smarter than we are given credit or respect for.

    Pros

    Great team environment on the "neighborhood level." They truly worked to put the resident first.

    Cons

    Office hours for the neighborhood offices were insane, hours until after 6:30 on weeknights and weekend hours. Also open during holidays (despite having an intensive after hours call system). No real room for advancement (regardless of your education/qualification level), pay sub-par.

    Pros

    Good pay, pretty fair monetary incentives, aesthetic offices, secure working environments.

    Cons

    Office leadership often lacks experience or training necessary to function effectively in a military setting. It seems that lower and mid-level management are invited to seek alternative employment if they ask questions related to ethical or operational standards.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the disconnects between local management and the corporate hierarchy. Floors should not be made of eggshells.


  10. "Great company, substandard local management"

    Pros

    They offer great benefits, and the PTO plan is good too. The pay is ok, but by no means great. You become very close with your co-workers and it's a great atmosphere to work in. They pretty much only promote from within, unless you have extensive experience.

    Cons

    Micro-management and constant change makes daily tasks difficult. There is an SOP for everything, but everyone has their own way of doing it. They are trying to improve their life-work balance, but it's still not great. At the mid-management level they forget where they came from and treat employees like serfs. Senior management works off of the good ol' boy system and tenure, not on merit and performance (note, i'm not complaining that I did not get a promotion, this is an un bias observation).

    Advice to Management

    Micro-management is killing employee morale. Look at a candidate's performance instead of their network or tenure. Pay the lower level staff more, they are the working parts of the company.
