Run don't walk. Extremely poor management. Middle management is difficult to deal with at best and no support from upper management. Worst job I ever had and I was good at it, the pay the constant micromanagement from a less than capable boss, I loved the work until middle management changed. The clients were great! Worried about my license the entire time. Because of questionable practices. If you care about your license this is not a good choice for you.

Well after working for this company for over 22yrs i can say that raises are very very seldom. i've had maybe two cost of living raises in the time i was employed and that didn't amount to a hill of beans. Advancement isn't much better either. They expect a lot out of you and the pay isn't great in fact it isn't up to the standards for the position in a national bases.

I would check upon the treatment of property managers/community administrators because not everyone is leaving jobs to chase money but it is for demoralizing treat. Also regionals and compliance directors not being held accountable for their errors. Things will never get better in a company if upper management keep blaming the little people because they can get away with it.
