Pros: great benefits
Cons: make too much money and they will push you out
I had been with Concord for seven years, and if anyone would've asked me, even a year ago, how do you like Concord; I would rave and rave about the wonderful pay, benefits, bonuses, training, helpful IT, strong knowledgeable Regionals who had compassion and wonderful understanding of how tax credit works, along side with the ups and downs of the market in the area your complex was at, there was a great President, CEO and EEO who were caring of its employees and company as a whole......starting about a year ago this has completely changed. Passing the company to a new president, might create more revenue, (more money, more money) which seems to be the new vision of Concord. Upper management are being forced to retire, or being so "pushed" out that they mysteriously leave after 18 years or more of working with Concord. Even major department heads have abruptly left after years with the company. This has now trickled down to operations and the trend is that the more salary you earn and if you are taking the benefits, you are being pushed out hard, Concord is doubling and tripling communities and calling them CPods having one property manager for all three communities and making less staff with less open hours and no weekends for the prospects and residents. Customer service is no longer a priority so don't worry if you do not posses that skill it is not needed. Some of the new hires have no experience in this industry at all and have never even been a porter much less a manager of a multifamily community. Reports that look good with graphs and scales are better than keeping occupancy up and delinquency down, keeping up appearances are better than actually fixing the problems. I miss the old Concord. Good luck with the new.
