    "Thank you Donna!"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Service Manager 

    I have been working at UDR full-time

    Pros

    Donna Battisti has been just wonderful from the start. She holds herself in a very professional manner and is thorough. She takes the time to get to know you, and makes sure you are clear on the next steps of the hiring process. She really set the tone for my initial experience with the company. Donna is a pillar of UDR, and I’m thankful she is my recruiter. She’s the best one I have worked with in my career. Thank you Donna for everything!

    Last couple months upper management (Regional and above) make the maintenance feel like we are expendable. Bonus are weak, almost a slap in the face. Advancement in the Dallas market isn't really there.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at UDR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the majority of the 200 some people in the office.

    Cons

    The executive team was very cold and openly flaunted their wealth and gave the impression that they are all constantly competing with one another to achieve higher status in wealth, it was weird, they acted like pseudo celebrities. Generally unlikable, with a few people being exceptions. The company is managed by people with have ego issues. Its a stuffy office since the windows around the office 360 are within closed offices. The only views of outside that staff see if they don't have a private office are from the boardrooms. The company in general is a very stressful environment. I heard, saw, and experienced this. They have unrealistic expectations. Multiple managers treated their direct reports poorly. There is 0 upward mobility depending on the role you are in. They pay poorly and their raises are weak. I received a distinguished performance review and received less than a 3% raise...
