    Pros

    The company takes care of the physical asset because they are long-term real estate holders, not constantly buying and selling.

    Cons

    After the founder passed away, the company went through leadership, structural, and cultural changes. What used to set Southern apart from other management companies is gone.

    Poor management, stressful work environment

    Mar 4, 2022 - Maintenance Technician 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Offer training, discount if you live in their complexes

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Highview Terrace is one of THE WORST complexes to work at. You don’t have a voice and the supervisor uses vulgar language the entire time. The lazy are given preference and leeway, while the hard workers are given extra load without recognition nor salary adjustment. The community is falling apart and don’t even notify residents that foundation is unstable. THEY EVEN GOT RESIDENTS LIVING IN BUILDINGS THAT ARE UNDERGOING STRUCTURAL REPAIR IN FOUNDATION! SM only cares about their profit and not quality of work done for the residents—stingy company that would rather have a roof falling apart every week than make an efficient repair.

    Pros

    None - this company was awful.

    Cons

    Terrible Management - 1 on 1's consist of your manager picking apart all of your work and making you feel like you are worthless. It's a tactic they use and it's awful in my opinion. Terrible management, don't want you to voice your opinion EVER, the list goes on and on.
