Grade II Building Engineer (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – August 31, 2014
A typical day for me is to work start-up or shut down shift in both Terminus 100 & Terminus 200,make sure all life safety systems work properly, also check that all exhaust fans and toilet exhaust fans work properly, make sure all SCU, PIU,VAV units work on all tenant floors and throughout the common areas, check EMS system to make sure that all lighting – more... in tenant spaces and common area work properly, answer all work orders in a timely manner, and complete PMs given to me by the Chief Engineer, as well.
Within the last few years, I have obtained my CPO license. I have improved on my leadership skills, as I train an apprentice engineer. I have also improved in using TRANE Tracer systems and TRANE Summit. I have under my supervision two lampers, who I have trained to install lighting and ballast.
I have the privilege of working under a chief engineer who has 22 years experience and thus learning from him. I work with a knowledgeable and helpful team.
The most difficult part of my job is staying on property for several days, when weather requires it. Although I know it is necessary, it is not easy.
The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the satisfaction the tenants get as a result of my hard work. – less

Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – October 23, 2012
Pros: family oriented company
Cons: they had to layoff their employees
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Cousins Properties...unfortunately the economy did not allow for them to keep the workforce that they had and they were forced to lower it. I was part of the 3rd layoff that Cousins needed to take. It was 2 years that I will always be glad to have a part of my career. I enjoyed working with everyone there. It was a great – more... team to be a part of. Management treated you as a equal. Great atmosphere and always felt appreciated. – less
