    Pros

    Sequoia truly has become my family. You aren't just another employee number among thousands, but are actually valued for your contributions and dedication. Yes, it can be a lot of work at times, but the rewards are definitely worth the effort.

    Cons

    None whatsoever. In four years with the company, I really haven't found anything that's really a major issue.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the support provided to the on site teams, and for enabling us to do the right thing for our residents.

    I worked at Sequoia Equities full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company atmosphere is amazing, training, holiday trips, work like balance goals are all great. Clearly defined and attainable bonus plan in place. Seems like they care about their residents and their employees. Stephanie Huhman at The Mill at First Hill location is amazing, as are the rest of the people there. If it had not been for a series of incompetent people placed in the service manager position I would still be working there, but I hear they have since found a great one!

    Cons

    Sometimes they care until they don't, and certain issues aren't handled in an ideal way, but no major cons. If a poor performing supervisor is placed, it is not easily resolved. Sometimes upward mobility can be stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't begin to know what to recommend on how to fix some of these issues, but I do think they try their best in most cases.

    I have been working at Sequoia Equities full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was new to the industry when I started as a temp for one of the locations. From day 1 it was clear that this is not your usual corporate environment, everyone that I met from the maintenance team to the executives seemed like they were genuinely enjoying their jobs. Very quickly I realized I wanted to be a part of this company. Luckily Sequoia saw something in me and offered me a full time position. That was 8 years ago! I have met and worked with so many wonderful people! The company's culture is what stood out to me when I first started and I still absolutely love it!

    Cons

    this is a smaller company so you have to be patient for growth opportunities.
