    I have been working at Venterra Realty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can go and on regarding the Pro's of this company. If you truly love helping people, you will flourish with Venterra. Since I joined this company 2 years ago, I've accomplished and gained so much in regards to both my professional and personal growth. I started with leasing and after about a year and a few months I was promoted to Assistant Community Manager/Better Living Manager. You will be provided with all the necessary training and tools you need in order to be successful. I've won awards, been acknowledged for going above and beyond, won incentives, I've traveled with the company, and despite my leaders not knowing, I've learned so much them. It's one thing to work with a company for a paycheck but it's another to work with a company that changes your life for the better. When you enjoy what you do, it doesn't feel like work. The core values of Venterra are everything I am and more. So again I say, if you truly love to be a positive impact on people's lives, if you truly love to help people daily, learn and grow in more ways than one, then this is the place for you. You have a voice and are heard everyday. Your mentors, IT department, and corporate office are always looking for ways to make your job easier and more effective. There's the Better Way program which is designed to collect feedback from the employees who mention ways to better our work system. The development team rolls out new enhancements by the week. You can actually win money by having the best Better Ways! The company wants you to have fun. We have a Fun social page and Fun Fridays that are dedicated to the enjoyment of the employees. We have such a great time! We have a Better Living Program dedicated to bettering our health and mental abilities. We have a Wow program centered on providing happiness to our residents in need. We have extra days off during the holidays and these extra days are considered "Family Days" :). As I mentioned before, I can go on and on as to why this company is definitely a prosperous career choice. I'm just simply looking forward to much more to come! Thank you Venterra for going above and beyond for all of us. I'm proud to be apart of such an amazing work family!

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Not much so advice, but more so a thank you to my management and regionals. They provide a very open work environment by keeping everyone in the loop! Thank you!

    Pros

    Venterra is the best place to work, EVER. As an employee, you are always a valuable part of the team and your voice matters. You have the opportunity to provide a “customer experience” rather than simply customer service and truly make a difference in people’s lives. Venterra is not just another company to work for, they have a culture, core values and know how to treat their employees. Bring your dog to work day? YES! Birthday off? YESSS! Fun Fridays? YES! Venterra Cares paid time off to volunteer? YESS! Free accommodations while you vacation at Disney? YES!! Constant personal and professional growth and development in a team oriented environment? YESSSS!!

    Pros

    This company really does care about its employees. They hire people to make sure the employees as well as residents have a great experience. Venterra also has a Fun Committee to make sure employees also have fun while they work. Regional Managers have great relationships with their managers and are very encouraging. The company also has a very good training program and stays advanced in the market.

    Cons

    I wish the company would be purchasing more properties in our region. When this doesn't happen it limits the opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to advise management to continue to celebrate success and work on the employee experience.

    I have been working at Venterra Realty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Venterra has a great family type, start up feel but is an established company with over 500 employees. There are constant opportunities to advance if you work hard and bring value to the team. I have built some great friendships and really enjoy the feeling of accomplishment when my hard work is recognized.

    Cons

    I wish hours were a little more flexible and allowed Community Managers to arrive earlier and leave earlier but I understand the need to set an example for the rest of the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focus on creating great company culture and you will continue to hire and keep professional staff that will deliver consistent solid results.

    Pros

    Culture, Culture, Culture! I pride myself on being transparent in my professional and my personal life, it's nice to work with a company with the same goal in mind! I just started with Venterra back in November of 2016, but thus far the experience has been a positive one. Their on boarding process was easy and warm; my regional stayed in touch with me throughout my 2 week wait from offer letter to start. I was given a mentor who stayed with me for training for a solid week even though I have 16 years experience in the industry, every company has different policies and procedures, it was nice to have someone so dedicated to seeing me be successful. Teams throughout our region really work together, offering support and help to each other when needed. All in all my experience thus far has been a positive one.

    Cons

    So far I don't see any. That may change and if it does I will update, remember what I said about transparency.

    Pros

    Today marks my 7 years with Venterra and I honestly could not see myself with any other company. The family feel that you have each day when you go to work and the fact that each person on your team is passionate about their career, teammates and residents makes going to work each day fun. They promote within the organization and in 7 years, I have been promoted 4 times. The customer service expectation that they set raises the bar higher than any other companies. They do annual kick-off party to celebrate the success of the employees and the properties. When looking for a place to work, you will replace the word “work” with the word “career”. We actually have a person that job title is “Employee Experience Manager" that comes up with creative things to do to make work fun each day.

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons- Anytime you need anything you have someone accessible to answer any questions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what your doing and creating a family/fun environment.

    Pros

    You are very informed about everything. Very open company which you do not see often. Amazing programs such as our WOW and WOW-ee. They do things that no other company I have ever worked for does. They even opened up a corporate unit at one of our Florida communities to allow any employee to stay for 6 nights completely free, and it is right next to Disney. I honestly feel valued as an employee. I highly recommend.

    Cons

    I am sure everyone feels as though pay could be more, but when you look at everything else they do, I feel as though it does balance out.
