    I worked at Stream Realty full-time

    Pros

    - Great colleagues who suffer the same struggle.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance, they will treat you like a robot that is expected to arrive early, stay late, work from home and work on weekends because they understaff and leave it squarely on employees back to pick up the slack. Vacation is pretty much blacked out 3.5 weeks a month because your work is piled so high so forget about trying to take a week off let alone a few days. The turnover is astronomical so the friendly colleagues you get to know won't be around long, the revolving door just keeps on churning.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings.

    I worked at Stream Realty full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    lower level team members are great and supportive, pay is so so, decent benefits

    Cons

    you are expected to fill several roles and are unfairly paid for it, management does not want to give you a raise unless you fight for it, claims flexible hours but then monitors you, management team is awful at actually managing the office and their employees

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with some respect and stop being money grabbers. Live up to your culture by actually being nice and honest.

    I have been working at Stream Realty full-time

    Pros

    Most of the employees are friendly and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Zero respect for work-life balance. Way too many accountants work too many hours. Stream shows no appreciation for the long hours worked. We are all on salary, so we don't even get extra pay. My direct supervisor is and exception to the pro I listed above. The supervisor talks down to me and is highly disrespectful and totally unprofessional. A lower-level accountant can be given properties formally handled by senior accountants and expected to do the reporting in the same amount of time. Was told when I started that taking action is not a problem; just plan ahead so that someone can cover me when gone. Later, I am told by my supervisor that I can't take any vacation that conflicts with reporting deadlines. I have deadlines on four different days each month (nine properties total), so I won't be able to take any more than a day or two off for vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the workload. Nine or 10 properties are too many for one person, even if they are supposedly "easy" properties. The "allocation" by percentage of time required for each property means nothing: time needed also depends on each accountant's abilities. You are overworking your employees and you don't show any appreciation for their efforts. From what I can tell, this is true across the organization.

    I worked at Stream Realty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay is okay

    Cons

    Executive Management is not truthful. They have poor people management skills. Your opinion better reflect their opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Owners need to look at the overblown egos of Executive Management.

    Pros

    Good company overall. Good benefits; leadership for the most part strong but growth can be slow in coming, depending on upper mgmt.

    Cons

    Third-party commercial property mgmt salaries don't always commensurate with workload; point & case: for this position, you're expected to pull double duty in most cases as asst prop mgr & admin but the salary screams the latter.

    Advice to Management

    Losen the purse. Take better care of your employees. Most work really hard and deserve advancement with pay, not to be ignored by immediate PM for fear of being out shined.

    I worked at Stream Realty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Initially it appears to be a dynamic growing company with friendly exec mgmt. This changes as you are with the co longer as communications and directions are mixed. Open work environment is good yet mgmt not receptive to interruptions.

    Cons

    Goals not identified locally and communication poor. Open environment can be positive yet is actually tense. Training of new employees weak. Good ole boy network strong.

    Advice to Management

    Structure could be set up differently to be more efficient and effective.
