    I have been working at Simpson Housing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people and environment are among the best I've ever experienced. The company believes strongly in promotion from within, when there are opportunities available. There are many long-term employees within the company.

    Cons

    The company gets bogged down in minutiae, and have taken away much of the decision-making from on site managers. People tend to stay a very long time, so it can be difficult to advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    If you trust someone enough to hire them as a manager, let them make decisions. The job shouldn't be a glorified "monitor" that has to refer to people above her to get something done.

    I have been working at Simpson Housing full-time

    Pros

    the benefits were amazing and upper management is always nice and respectful

    Cons

    wages are very low, management is terrible they lie to you to get what they want out of you, and do not follow through on whats promised, very disappointing

    Advice to Management

    get a clue repairs do not happen instantly they take time, try walking market readies instead of having just the maintenance staff do it

    Pros

    Simpson was such a great company to work for. They offer fantastic pay and benefits, but their company culture and belief in work/life balance is what kept me with the company for over 10 years. The Regional Managers are so supportive and great to work for, no micromanaging at all. Just an all around great company.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if you expanded your portfolio in Florida.

    Pros

    Great people that care about their employees and assets, fostered a wonderful employee experience for me. The leaders made the difference!

    Cons

    More strict rules for attire than I was accustom to. However I have to admit that they paid for our career apparel so I really shouldn't complain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being the rock stars that you are!

    Pros

    Company policy on a national level was good.

    Cons

    Company support and management on a local level was not great. There was a lot of nepotism involving upper management.

    Wages were nowhere near where they should have been for the position.

    Only a few properties in the area, with long term management, no room for advancement until someone retires.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make improvements. Don't just be "competitive", be a leader in the industry.
