    I worked at Sentinel Real Estate Corp. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very strong in structure, policies and management. A wonderful learning experience. I honestly will go where ever they are for employment. Had not my property sold, I would've remained an employee for years to come. I miss the corporate family. Perfect work/life balance. Property software wasn't granted to me, therefore, all work remained at work. I appreciated that greatly! Awesome benefits!

    Cons

    None. If I had one to mention, it would be the multiple audits (3 per year). The gist of them make complete since, however they become a bit wearisome and a interruption to an already full day.

    Advice to Management

    Purchase more assets in Maryland please! :)

    Pros

    Great product and the company took pride in keeping the property in good shape. Pricing was in line with the market and we were able to maintain high occupancy. Communicating with upper management was open and supportive.

    Cons

    Turnover with some of the senior staff members on a fairly regular basis within the 3 years of me being there. Opportunities for advancement or transfers were not openly communicated to team members.

    Advice to Management

    Team Building between regions, communities and communication on the overall company goals/ status would help everyone see the big picture.

    I have been working at Sentinel Real Estate Corp. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company values consistency, accuracy, and professionalism. It is hard work that is satisfying to complete. They document everything to protect their employees, because there is always the scary side of legal issues. Other companies do not go as far.

    Cons

    They are not employee sympathetic. Your work comes before anything else going on. Do not punish employees for medical leave, because those things are out of the employees control. They do not pay well for the industry we are in.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in promoting hard working employees; instead of favoritism. Things would run much more smoothly.

    Pros

    Never need to work late
    Can be a decent stepping stone for other opportunities
    Great location in midtown
    Most people get their own office

    Cons

    Colleagues not especially friendly
    Somewhat bizarre culture
    Not a meritocracy, office politics and gossip are out of control
    Boredom and insistence that employees not go the extra mile

    Advice to Management

    Get the company culture under control, lose some of the old school thinking, try to turn into more of a meritocracy

    Pros

    I like the way things were when I worked here. Maybe bc they treated everyone with respect.

    Cons

    There are not many things I can say bad about this coming company. They are based out of New York and even though the corporate office was far away, there was always help if needed.

    Advice to Management

    If you work hard and take care of business, this company willike show there appreciation. Great company!

    I worked at Sentinel Real Estate Corp. full-time

    Pros

    I loved working with the residents and most of them loved me. Thanks to my experience as a leasing consultant at one of their properties, I fell in love with the real estate business.

    Cons

    This was probably the worst job I ever had. As a leasing consultant, I had to work every Saturday and Sunday during the summer and 9 days in a row during the rest of the year. I was never trained properly to do my job and as a result, was always getting into trouble for everything. I'm not the type of person who gets into trouble ever. The manager ruled with fear and had me stressed to the point that I had to start taking medication for anxiety.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they tell you they're tired and becoming burnt out from working 9 days in a row. A good manager is a manager who is willing to work with their employees.
