Pros: bonus plan, healthcare benefits
Cons: sterile environment
I came to UDR from the same industry (multi-family) with responsibility in the same area (utilities). The hiring manager left UDR in late August and the utilities function was re-organized under different management.
During my tenure at UDR, I was doing work I really loved: building partnerships with vendors, interacting with community staff, resident billing management, training, account reconciliation. I especially enjoyed working on resident amenty programs that were on my desk by default, not having another logical home. My co-workers created a team-friendly environment.
The hardest part of my job was not being able to fulfill the requirement of financial/analytical skills to the level it was becoming necessary to.
