After 6 years, dropped like a bad habit
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PASeptember 20, 2017
I worked for Windsor from 2011 through 2016 as a Maint. Supervisor. In the beginning it couldn't have been better, but slowly major changes, Regional managers were let go and not replaced which put more burden on Supervisors. Try explaining a bad Hydro heating system to someone who knows nothing. It hurt to be let go after 6 years, i worked my butt off, even worked through recovering from Stage 3 colon cancer and they still let me go after selling a sister property. Now there hiring Upper management positions for maintenance to people who have never worked in the field...GOOD LUCK
Pros
My Team at the site was awseome
Cons
Middle management, meddles where they shouldnt

Don't be fooled by free apartment!
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 23, 2017
ZERO work life balance as a maintenance guy. This job totally consumes your life and every other maintenance guy there is burnt out. They don't pay any better than other property management company but the main issue here is they really don't care at alll about their employees. Very High turnover, the only ones who stay are the ones trapped by the "free apartment" which you get paid less if you live on site but they don't pay you enough to live within 20 minutes of the property but expect you to be on call and respond at all times of the night, every night, multiple times, without sleep and go to work and keep working by yourself because they don't hire enough people to upkeep luxury standards. They don't seem to understand that when you triple rents, tenants have high expectations but they refuse to spend a dime on workers to meet that expectation and they seem to think that changing the staff around will solve the issue. Upper management is very incompetent because they never lifted screwdriver in their life and have NO idea what it takes to never sleep, work hard physical labor, and never get to leave the property...all to make unfair pay.

They still pay 90s wages in 2017 Denver market but can't afford to pay better when they triple rent and rip off tenants. I get it's a business but there is a lot of greed in this company. Wait for your 40 cent raise...then they have a conference bragging how they have 11 BILLION in buyer power this year.

Happy job searching!
Pros
Health insurance
Cons
Free apartment not really free, low pay, way too much work for amount of employees, discriminating and hostile environment, no sleep, time lost from family, high turnover, political

Everyone is a politician
Marketing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 4, 2016
Terrible work environment. Very unorganized. Property Managers are not knowledgable about their position and the positions beneath them and talk gossip about others. The company only cares about making money. They show extreme favoritism. Very high turnover. Run.

Love the Immediate management. Regional mgt... something else
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Denver, COOctober 21, 2016
Was a great staring place. My direct boss was awesome. Regional VP tried to control every aspect of the job, but couldn't remember what he had told his people last week. Too much paper work for Maintenance supervisors. Way too much micro-managing. The company itself really takes care of the employees though. Some very good people.
Pros
Great benefits like free apt for maintenance techs
Cons
Some "old school" ways

Loved my life with Windsor
Property Manager (Former Employee) –  VirginiaOctober 10, 2016
Windsor truly believes that its employees are its greatest assets. They treat you with respect. They allow employees of all levels to learn as much as they want and value opinions. They do their best to spread the Windsor spirit with events like rallys, team lunches, christmas parties, occasionally a team building event like habitat build or picnic. Their health benefit rates can not be beat! The hardest part of the job is staying up beat when being pulled down by residents, the most enjoyable part is coworkers.
Pros
free lunches, GREAT health benefit rates, feeling valued
Cons
Because of so many competent people in the organization, promotions are competitve but they usually come from within

Great starting point for anyone looking to get into the multifamily industry.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 18, 2014
Company has great training and certifications as well as a personal growth that is far greater then any other company I`ve worked for. Their work ethic is bar none and they have a tremendous growth potential in the field with the exception of the southern region.
Pros
Great Starting point for anyone looking to get into the multifamily market
Cons
Southern Region seems to be a place where you can not grow to your true potential
