Productive and successful environment
service technician (Current Employee), 101 west end avenueMarch 28, 2015
I have gained a lot of experience on resolving problems and organizing projects with managers and co-workers. I have also gain confidentiality within myself. I would have to say that the hardest part of job is having to work on my own; but, I have managed myself to complete my duties. I would say that the most enjoyable part of my current job is seeing the looks on the residents' faces when I have completed a job.

This place has its family fun moments
Accounts Payable Assistant (Former Employee), Augusta, GAMarch 23, 2015
I feel that this place (the Augusta Office) can be so much better. The management needs to separate personal relationships with co-workers in the workplace. I feel if you stand up for something, its mends to get let go. There are some good moments within this company but it is very far in between. There are a lot of assumptions within this place without proper findings of what a person is said to be doing or not doing. Discrimination is within this work place. You are not paid by the work you do unless you have an outside relationship with the managers. The company does have company outings and lunches for the employees which is great but it does not make it a happy place to be once you have to go back to work. It is a lot of back stabbing within this office and people are not being held accountable for the job they are supposed to do, meaning jobs are pushed off on someone else who is not under that title and being blamed for something that is out of their control.

Only drawback was the salary, they pay a little under market rates for New York.

Decent work place with somewhat limited interaction with management
concierge (Former Employee), 50 stainford st. bostonFebruary 23, 2015
A typical day at work included assisting patients with locating thier doctors offices and securing their transportation. It was a largely isolated workplace. I only really interacted with management when I was acting as a go-between with the tenants. The hardest part of the job was providing security for the location. The most enjoyable part was assisting patients with their needs.

Building still under construction, commute too long,
Night Porter (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 21, 2015
Pros: insurance benefits
Cons: have to work 8 1/2 hours to make up for the 1/2 hour break they are forced to give me
As the building is under construction and there are still real estate agents showing apartments, there is a lot of pressure to keep things as pristine as possible, while dust falls constantly. I have learned how to inspect a model apartment from ceiling to floor, assist in nighttime security and fill in for concierge during breaks and learned the MRI software system.

"Some thing about Equity"
GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee), ColoradoFebruary 20, 2015
Pros: values you and what you bring to the team.
Cons: burden is on local leaders to continue and foster the "some thing about equity" modo.
There is a fabulous feeling when you work for Equity. You can not pin point it to just one thing. It's just "Some thing about Equity."
Unfortunately local upper management has done a complete change in the past two years. The feeling & pride that you had, working for such a fabulous company is lost due the local leaders.

Not so good work/life balance
Sr. Leasing Consultant (Current Employee), 400 West 37th Street, New York, NY 10018February 16, 2015
Pros: great health benefits, great training programs
Cons: commission structure
It is great place to learn as it offers constant training in customer service, sale, etc. Lots of customer solving issues and you learn how to deal with them. Everyday can be different. However, most sites are under staff which results in not too much of work/life balance. There has been too many changes and budget cuts that do not benefit the properties or employees. High employee turnover.
