Assistant Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAMay 17, 2017
That's their motto. The property management field is a bit cut throat to begin with and rings true in a large company like this. I enjoyed working there and would apply again if they were in this area.

Extremely Fast-Paced, Cut-Throat Environment
Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAMay 8, 2017
The Irvine Company struggles with the modern working environment. they intend to modernize themselves but have yet to get there. Work, life balance is still very slow to catch on. Upper Management is the only level of employees who are recognized or listened to. Anything below Senior Director has little input. You are expected to produce above and beyond - which is fine, but you are made to feel expendable and that you can be easily replaced at any moment. They don't care about loyalty.

Great benefits and there is always an annual bonus.

Good people but management is always try to one up each other. Everyone is always worried about what everyone else thinks about them and the culture is stifling.

Dual-Site Community Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAApril 25, 2017
I have enjoyed working at Irvine Company. I know that a lot of people give this company a bad rap, but personally I have learned so much working for this company. I have a great work family and support system who makes going to work enjoyable. The management is amazing, and they really care about their employees.

Excellent prduct
Service Manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAApril 1, 2017
Irvine properties are Class A. Great physical atmosphere. Amenities are first rate and there is a high commitment to maintenance of the properties in regards to landscaping, pools and water features. I learned a lot about leadership and coaching through training seminars provided by the company. The main downside is the lack of staffing for some of the properties.
Pros
Good facilities
Cons
Staffing is thin at some properies

Poorly Managed Company

Great for college students
Guest Services Associate/Lead (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAFebruary 23, 2017
All aspects of the job from running the kiosk to operating the attractions is easy to learn and easy to operate. You are always doing something different everyday and the people you work with (mostly college students) makes the job worthwhile. There are a mix of busy days and laid back days which can challenge you from time to time, and other shifts where you feel like "I'm being paid to just stand here". They work easily with your schedule, but you have to be sure to request days off a month ahead of time. If you are already scheduled you have to rely on your co-workers to cover which can be stingy at times ,and may have to resort to bribing. Overall it is a great place with good pay if you are a college student.
Pros
Great people, and a large and lively envirnoment
Cons
Tough to cover shifts on short notice.

The internship with the Irvine Company was enjoyable and beneficial to my knowledge. I learned a lot of acquisition, development, design, and GIS functions. I had several tasks involving the research of zoning and general plans for 96 cities in CA. I thoroughly enjoyed the team I worked with, which was the Community Development Studio.

Corporate Marketing (Former Employee) –  Newport Beach, CASeptember 6, 2016
Travel into Newport did have its challenges. Work hours set but yet flexible, depending on personal needs and work schedule.

Management was easy to work with. Ability working with clients at resort allowed me to understand all aspects of what is needed to apply professional care.

One can not always please everyone, but knowing we can achieve to be better the next time allows one for person growth.
Pros
Great clients and employees
