    Pros

    Monday is officially JEANS DAY. It feels like the weekend just got extended. So excited!

    Cons

    Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are feeling forgotten. Perhaps someday they can be JEANS DAYS too.

    Where to start .... What an amazing company I get to work for everyday . You treat each and every one of us like family. We were just given all holidays off so that we can be with our families too !! Thank you for caring .
    *Amazing 401 K benefits
    *Very Competitive pay
    *Every 6 months we get to go shopping for Clothes that fit us and look good on our bodies .
    *Treated like Family
    *Management is always there for you when you need it
    *Properties are staffed well and when one property needs help we work as a team till we are all strong again .
    *We just have "fun" who can say that about their job !!

    So thank you Sequoia for being so awesome and just letting us Crush it in all domains of our lives !!!

    I have been working at Sequoia Equities full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -competitive pay
    -excellent upward movement opportunities
    -great benefits (401k, health, dental, vision)
    -excellent "thank you" incentives for employees (fun days, gift cards, bonuses)
    -necessarily high standards which in turn leads to the high expectations that give you the ability to prove yourself and push you to the next level.
    -As a company we work hard and play hard. I appreciate a culture that values both professionalism and hard work while encouraging time to decompress and have fun.
    -gift cards for work clothing

    Cons

    -Although they offer an ample amount of holidays (9), I have worked for companies that offer a few more. Just a few more days especially around the holidays I feel really helps create an optimal work/life balance as it allows more family time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    No glass ceilings here! Corporate is accessible and knows you by name. Good pay. Great company values. Incentives are huge here and often times very generous. And sometimes you get a gift card for no reason other than it's national ice cream day! Bonuses abound!

    Cons

    Healthcare is on the expensive side.

    Advice to Management

    Aetna. We really need Aetna.

    Pros

    Steady Schedule, professional appearance, and great to be able to create relationships with the tenants.

    Cons

    Not sure about other properties, at mine. The manager and assistance are best friends and neither can do no wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time getting to know your lower level people. Help them feel appreciated.
