    Pros

    The office atmosphere is fast paced and fun. Co-workers are amazing and have each other's backs. Provides a satisfying work experience knowing that you are helping people in a time of need.

    Cons

    This company is an operations nightmare. Management has no formal training, and takes no responsibility for poor choices that have been made. Also there is a lack of distinction between outstanding employees and those that do the bare minimum. Employees are treated as if they are easily replaceable. Management does not take into consideration the time and money it takes to train a new employee. Average turnover is less than one year. Could be considered a 'temporary accommodation' for its employees, before they discover the wrongdoings and move on to greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees, and make more of an effort to keep the good ones!

    Pros

    A fun and busy atmosphere. Food parties and holiday fun!

    Cons

    I had to take a sick day when my pre-schooler was sick. Hours were 9-6 and NO FLEXIBILITY. That left little time to be a decent Mom. The work was hard and the recognition from the owners was nil. Most of the clients were not the smartest peeps. Burn out happens way too often.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward your peons! They helped you get your homes and cars and nice clothes!

    I worked at Temporary Accommodations full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can wear shorts and jeans to work. Some employees are nice and there are a couple managers there that actually professional and know what they are doing but I did not get to work for them. The holidays are a lot of fun. We would get all sorts of treats from vendors. Be prepared to gain a couple pounds.

    Cons

    It used to be a fun place to work until they made some leadership changes in operations. The new operations management team has no idea what they are doing. They thing they know it all when they do not understand the work flow of their own employees. They try to act like they can do everything but they cannot book hotels or close claims on their own. One manager didn't even know the company mission statement when told to memorize it for a company meeting. They try to get involved with stuff that they know nothing about. No one in the office respects them. I am glad I got out when I did and I feel there will more quality employees that have been there for quite some time will leave as well because who would want to work for that team when there is no team environment. The job market is a lot better and they can find other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with the changes that have been made before they make everyone quit and then they will be right behind them.

    Pros

    Really can't think of any?

    Cons

    They would rather have turnover than properly train and invest in their employees. Their conduct creates a unprofessional atmosphere in a work environment.

    Pros

    None what so ever. I thought I was walking into a great opportunity instead I was walking into a slave pen.

    Cons

    This company prides itself on filling the pockets of the owners and nothing else. If this company cares for anything at all its the owner/ceo and VP's lifestyle and nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company or learn how to manage

    I worked at Temporary Accommodations full-time

    Pros

    Ohhh I wish there were pros

    Cons

    It pays to be a "family friend". Otherwise, don't expect much.

    Advice to Management

    Sell company to someone to someone else
