    I have been working at UDR full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -company is expanding -entry level = no experience needed (trained on the job) -employees are great and helpful -good benefits for entry level

    Cons

    -work can become tedious -at times too much face-to-face interaction with others. (up to 8hrs a day) -at times too many employees as for help. -not much room for pay increase. -seldom room for promotions. -promotions don't include much pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    -management has been great as far as I'm concerned. They give you lots of freedom also a lot of trust to complete your tasks.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Good benefits and culture - people care about their work and coworkers.

    Cons

    Very structured - not much room to move up due to low turnover in key positions (why? see Pros)

    Advice to Management

    Create career paths that allow non-property experience to move up.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good management. Great earning experience for IT systems and real estate property management.

    Cons

    Sometimes users of IT resources are unclear about their needs and IT folks are blamed for not delivering. Requirements analysis was getting better.

    I have been working at UDR

    Pros

    Amazing availability of resources, and superior structure/management as a whole. Corporate is great, very easy to talk to, and are really good about recognizing strong performance(s), but can be too 'hands off' at times (it is somewhat to be expected coming from that level). Takes advantage of new technologies and innovations to ensure optimal efficiency, and seemingly regularly wins its markets. A prime operator! As a company overall, absolutely outstanding (two thumbs up). A very ethically driven corporation, the CEO and CFO are phenomenal. Great bonus potential, and good benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of gossip and politics, employees can get away with too much (in general). It is easy for employees to make it look like they are being productive, whereas in reality, they are not. This is poor for morale amongst team members, who must then pick up the slack in order maintain daily operations (all to often, those employees are then overlooked as well). Employee career growth is not a major priority, and rarely do opportunities for growth come available. The 'ladder' can take you in multiple directions...not just 'up.'

    Advice to Management

    With the great successes of implementing Service 2.0, I recommend an "Office 2.0". Encourage greater hands-on training for new positions created, and/or new associates coming on board. Too many cases of associates being 'thrown to the wolves,' without being given any clear expectations (and then are penalized for not meeting those expectations). Continue to excel in technological innovations. Check-in with those 'on-site' staff members every now and then, ask them how things are going, what can be done to help them succeed, etc.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    If you have worked in this business before, it's honestly pretty much the same as any other company. Their training is decent and they work off of onesite, which in my opinion is the best software. Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Hard to move up bc it is very political and goes to whomever can suck up the most. Lots of budget cuts effect the resident and therefore effect you (because the resident comes in screaming to you.) turns are horrible bc of the lack of money and the maintenance start to not care because they feel like the management doesn't care. Like I said though, same as any other property management out there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about your bonuses and start really trying to make your communities look and feel good.

    I worked at UDR

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, great co-workers. The buildings are well kept and maintained. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    UDR is not an employee oriented company. Employees are let go with out any consideration and without reason, meeting financials goals is their only objective.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with the respect and dignity they deserve, especially those who bust their tails to get the job done.
