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.

I enjoyed working in a fast pace community where I was able to multitask and show off our large community. Residents are always in need of assistance; whether it's transferring, questions about their account, or needing just a simple lease printed.

I was a leasing agent so my day was spend doing tours. I also took care of residents concerns and issues around the property.
