Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your time with Equity. We take a lot of factors into consideration when determining one’s compensation, including industry experience when applicable. Each new employee that joins Equity brings a unique skill set to the table, and we factor in those contributions when determining a competitive offer. Work/Life balance is extremely important here at Equity, and we are sorry to hear that you did not feel that was the case. We offer paid time off benefits that include 8 hours of community service that you can utilize every year, sick time, vacation time, personal days, and company paid holidays; in fact, this year our office and service teams are getting both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off* (*certain exclusions may apply). Working on the weekends is a fundamental requirement for our leasing consultants, as we are a customer focused industry and weekends are a popular time for our customers to stop by. However, a benefit of working the weekends is that this is typically when most commissions are earned. Once again, we appreciate all of your feedback and we wish you the best!
It’s always difficult to hear feedback that doesn’t align with the culture and experience we strive to deliver to our employees. That being said, we certainly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We would like to opportunity to hear more about your change of heart, and urge you to reach out to your local HR department at 206-508-0640 to further discuss your concerns. Thank you again, and we hope to hear from you soon.
Your review speaks volumes to all of the hard work and research our Comp and Benefits teams do, as well as the time and dedication our Organization and Talent Development team puts into training and development courses and programs! Thank you for taking the time to recognize their efforts. And it sounds like you participated in Equity’s stock option purchase program, which is a great way to invest and prepare for the future! Thank you again for sharing feedback on some of the great benefits Equity has to offer.
We’re disappointed to hear that you left Equity feeling this way, and want to thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We strongly encourage our employees to discuss any concerns they have with their manager, Regional Manager, or local Human Resources Department. We wish you the best.
Your comments encompass the kind of company culture that we strive to achieve, and that’s definitely something that we love to see! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts!
We’re delighted to hear about your team experience during your time here at Equity! Thank you for taking the time to share such kind words about your colleagues - we wish you the best of luck!
We are thankful for your amazing review!! It’s such a pleasure to read comments that support and define that kind of company culture that we all work so hard to achieve. Thank you for embracing the challenging times and for celebrating all of the positive ones!
We share the sentiment that helping find someone a home is a rewarding experience; it’s an amazing feeling for all parties involved when that’s accomplished!
Please know that we always want our employees to feel comfortable in their work environment; if ever there’s a time when that’s not the case, we would encourage them to reach out to their manager, Regional Manager, or local HR team to express their concerns. Please feel free to reach out to our local HR team in Washington DC at 202-971-7088, if you’d like to further discuss your experiences at Equity. Thank you!
While your position with us was temporary, it’s so awesome to know that our teams left such a permanently positive impression on you! Thank you for your comments and we wish you the very best of luck!
We couldn’t agree more - Equity Residential is a great place to start (and continue to develop and grow within) your career! Thank you so much for sharing comments on your positive experiences with us!
We appreciate you taking the time to share your enthusiasm surrounding benefits, compensation, and training - thank you! Conversely, it’s always hard to hear that an employee feels that they were stuck in a position, especially after acknowledging our training efforts. We have a fantastic Organization Talent and Development department that specializes in developing training programs, which to your point, offers support to employees that are seeking growth. We have a great track record of promoting from within as opportunities present themselves, however we also recognize that there are times when patience and/or flexibility are needed in order to seek promotion opportunities. We strongly encourage our employees to speak to their managers, Regional Managers, OTD contacts, and/or HR contacts if they have any questions on taking the next steps to be considered for a transfer or promotion. Thank you again for sharing your feedback!
What an honor to receive a 5 star rating - thank you! Individuals like you are such a key component to the company culture that we strive so hard to achieve. There’s something to be said about a former employee of 10+ years that comes back to grace us not only with kind words, but with a powerful message such as “Equity Residential was and is the best management company to work for in the world.” Thank you.
Speaking of awesome…thank you for the awesome review! We appreciate your recommendation and are so pleased to hear about your positive experiences during your time with Equity!
It’s always a pleasure to see former employees visit our page and leave comments about their time with Equity. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and we hope that everything is going well!
What an amazing message to receive - thank you!! You are absolutely correct when you say that Equity’s focus is on our people, promoting diversity, and supporting the overall wellbeing of our employees. It’s that exact reason that makes it so difficult to at times part ways with communities, or in your instance, a specific market. We wish you the best of luck in all that you do and hope that you keep practicing the 10 ways!
Thank you for taking the time to comment! As you mentioned, Equity welcomes suggestions from our team members. In fact, it’s so important to us that we have several resources in place to solicit employee recommendations and feedback - including our online MasterMinds platform, regional Town Hall meetings, and an open-door policy with our leadership teams. Staffing models and community positions are constantly being reviewed to ensure that we have the right formulas at each of our unique communities. We strive to provide our employees with a good work life balance and so we would like to invite you to contact your local Human Resources department to further discuss your specific situation. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts, we truly appreciate you!
Thank you for your 10 years of service - that’s quite an accomplishment and we wish you the best of luck in your next role. We appreciate your comments, as well as taking the time to acknowledge the team that you had in place during your tenure with Equity; way to share the spotlight!
We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We pride ourselves on promoting a culture of inclusion, and are sorry to hear that you didn’t feel this wasn’t the case during your time with Equity. If you haven’t already done so, we would encourage you to reach out to your local HR contact at 312-928-1210 so that you can share the details of your experience.
We appreciate your recommendation -- thank you! We can’t say enough great things about our Organization Talent and Development department; they are simply the best and do a phenomenal job creating and implementing courses for our employees!
