    Pros

    I have worked for The Connor Group for 3 years. To begin with, the initial and ongoing training I have received continues to give me the tools I need to excel. The core policies and procedures that have been in place help to make our communities both successful and happy homes for our residents. Our residents ARE our number 1 priority, and to ensure that, our residents complete a survey twice a year at every property to give us feedback on what we do well and areas we can improve in - and The Connor Group helps us as managers actively react to both. Many of the rewards that we are able to get are centered around these scores. Personally, I feel my base compensation is more than adequate, but on top of that I have been rewarded with many items off my "wish list" (that my managers ensure they keep updated for us) plus I was fortunate enough to be given a paid vacation out of the country. I feel with my senior management team, that my opinion truly matters. I believe that if you are willing to work hard, follow the training, and utilize all of the readily available resources - everyone could be successful with this company.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long hours involved - but like most jobs there are peak seasons and off seasons, so it typically balances out. Secondly, we as employees are not exempt from driving results - I would imagine anyone would be hard pressed to name one company where you were. We do have goals to achieve, not unlike a fast food restaurant meeting the drive thru time goals or a shipping company being under a certain mis-sort number or any goal with any type of organization, and finding the best ways to meet these goals can be stressful. However, in my past experience I couldn't always say I had the tools I needed to meet or achieve these goals...with The Connor Group, I can and I do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push us as employees to provide the best customer service we possibly can, and for me the ongoing training that is provided really is second to none! Thanks for always showing your appreciation for the hard work we do!

    Pros

    I am challenged everyday and given the opportunity to run my own business. This company is like no other company out there. You are paid a decent base salary and are highly rewarded for your success. They truly take care of their talented and dedicated employees from the grounds guy to the property manager. I love what I do, I have done this for nearly two years and I feel challenged everyday. This is not a career where you will be bored or under utilized. The regional manager is great to work for and allows you to run your property as if it were your own business. Every year we have two award banquets in each region and have numerous company functions throughout the year. Everyone in the company is dedicated and a team regardless where they are stationed. I love working here and plan to make this my career.

    Cons

    Very stressful.
    Summer days can be long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Have committees with employees throughout the company at all levels.

    I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While everyone is responsible for their own goals and tasks, the majority of fellow associates are very welcoming and supportive of each other. This makes for a great working environment that effectively promotes exceptional results. The great efforts taken to achieve these results are rewarded on a daily basis so I never feel like the quality work I put in goes unnoticed. Also, managers have a way of achieving a forward-thinking mentality that often get the best out of their team members. Thanks to this, I have always felt trusted with my work and have had many opportunities to be creative.

    Cons

    The hours can sometimes be long, making for a less than desirable work/life balance.

    Pros

    The training we receive during the first month of being hired and the continuing training we get several times a year is just outstanding. It makes you feel good that they continue to invest time and money in your well being.

    Cons

    During the summer months is our busy season you are required to work more hours which takes away from spending time with your family.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push as much training to your employees as possible even during the busy months.
