    I worked at Windsor Communities full-time

    Pros

    The company itself has great benefits and wonderful people working for them. They definitely have a "type" and everyone was wonderful to work with. They give you a clothing allowance and also have certain "team building" off days every so often.

    Cons

    Difficult to get days off

    I worked at Windsor Communities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture, good pay & benefits and great training department. They put a lot into training employees and they keep their expectations high - you are pushed to do your best and be your best. TONS of opportunity for growth. Very supportive upper management - they are always looking for ways to improve and keeping their employees happy. I only left the company due to my spouse's job relocation and was very sad to leave.

    Cons

    Hours aren't great and work/life balance can sometimes suffer, but this applies to property management as a whole.

    Pros

    Windsor is a great company. They really treat their employees very well, as well as have a great company culture. Definitely a top end company to work for in property management. The west region is absolutely amazing with a ton of great property managers, DM's as well as a great training program and training director.

    Cons

    Nothing but good things to say. Commission structure could be slightly higher.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing more acquisitions, watching the portfolio grow was a really great feeling.

    Pros

    Good pay, great bonus potential, health care is alright it could be better

    Cons

    Properties have a lot of turn over which is good for commissions but a lot of work. Promotions come too fast to underserving people which causes unnecessary friction.

    Advice to Management

    Train your terrible Managers a little longer.

    Pros

    - Competitive Pay
    - Beautiful Corporate Office
    - CEO Kind

    Cons

    - Upper Management Above Property Manager Level Micro Manager & Extremely Unprofessional
    - Very old school management style (dated)
    - Not diversified at all, Executive reflects a boys’ club and the one woman Executive is a “know-it-all” who is petty, will lie and bully you.
    - “Inner Circle” includes graduates of the same college, so if you don’t fit the mold, they’re not welcoming.
    - Cookie cutter property managers that are not allowed to think for themselves.
    - Promotions based on popularity, not skill-set.

    Advice to Management

    New blood is good. Change is good. Just because an associate reflects tenure, doesn’t mean they’re entitled to a promotion. And just because one asks questions, doesn’t mean they’re challenging. Being an over-bearing, control freak is so 1990. Welcome to 2018 where a Millennial will quit because they have pride and refuse to deal with poor treatment. Also, look around - there are more than Caucasian people that make up the United States.

    Pros

    Windsor is one of the best companies I have worked for! They demonstrate employee recognition as well as work/life balance. The benefits are great, the pay is good, they offer a generous clothing allowance twice a year. The training is fantastic and they really do set you up for success.

    Cons

    I can't think of many cons but if I had to mention one it would be that they focus a little too much on secret shops, the pressure can be intense but it's all to benefit you and help with your sales approach.
