    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 makes it a FUN place to work. We are always having a contest of some sort and I feel that it keeps it fun. Venterra also trains you to succeed and gives you the tools you need to do your job. We also promote from within and I feel that is something people look for.

    Cons

    A downside in our area is that we as a region have only 6 communities vs. 12+ we had at one point, but on a positive note, we are all close just like a family.

    Pros

    The culture! Venterra has an amazing culture that made it fun to come to work. They put people in roles who will perform optimally and give you every tool to succeed. I truly felt like I was never just a "number" but apart of something much larger. From corporate employees like Teri, Candi, Diane, Eastin and Jessica, to onsite team members Tammie, Kristy, Bennett, Lauren, Erin, Diane, Kim, Dustin, Lili, Alex, Dustin, Gabby, Tonya, Megan, Anne, and Cassi, everyone has been a true pleasure to work alongside.

    Cons

    Absolutely nothing! I can't think of any cons. I'm only leaving for simply financial and promotion related reasons. So if the fact that I struggled with my decision to ultimately leave is a con, that's a great con to have!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Continue to make employees feel that they contribute; that they have a voice.

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

    Pros

    There's tons of great stuff that Venterra has that others don't. To name a few: volunteer days off, birthdays off, regular company meet-ups, upfront funds for external learning, they give money for sharing ideas to improve operations and for sharing stories of going above and beyond for residents, have budgets to "WOW" residents and employees in actually personal ways (think furniture for those in need and surprise baby showers,) a "Fun Committee" to just come up with cool stuff to do onsite, and have a solid training program that includes a mix of different methods. I've seen a ton of people move up the ranks during my time on the team (including myself) and have also seen a couple of people leave for one reason or another only to voice regrets soon afterwards, because they didn't realize how unique what we have going here really is. This really is an organization built on the idea that long-term success comes from doing right by other people instead of a short-term focus on squeezing every single penny and viewing residents as rent checks. Definitely a rare find, especially in this industry.

    Cons

    Venterra's got some serious expectations for everyone on the team, regardless of role. Although this is made clear early on, this can catch people off guard if they're not expecting it. Clock-watchers need not apply. That said, the hard work is definitely worth it to be with a company that sticks to it's values and actually rewards and promotes individuals who do the same.
