General Manager (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – June 28, 2018
I am celebrating my first year anniversary tomorrow. I have worked at multiple management companies and I must say that Associa has been the best. I feel they really do care. Top level management reaches out to you and you know they have your back. The door is always open. I feel there is plenty of advancement opportunity and the pay is adequate for our area and is in line with salary standards set by our industry. They have multiple events to encourage a TEAM environment. They have started a newsletter just for on-site staff so we don't feel disconnected and forgotten. I would highly recommend working here.
Leadership Team Member (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 11, 2019
Associa is a great company to work for with many opportunities for advancement. I have been promoted several times in my three years with the company. I truly believe that Associa strives to create a great work environment for employees and does reinforce the "family spirit" concept.
Lots of morale oriented events, challenging work, great work environment
Chief Engineer (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – January 10, 2019
My building is on major concrete and balcony restoration. I`m busy from the time I come in till I get to go home. I have learned a lot since they started this project. I`m looking forward to see this project completed.
It was a fast paced atmosphere, there was not enough support staff to assist with management roles. Too many properties placed on one manager, especially if there were demanding communities that needed more attention than others.
Driven, committed, focused vision that has created a 'great place to work' environment and growing.
Branch President (Current Employee) – Houston, Texas – December 3, 2018
It is not often that you can go to work for a company that paints a really strong picture of all the wonderful things they are going to promote and then they actually follow thru in all senses working hard to make them all come true. Associa has and continues to do this with great focus and efforts on all fronts. When leadership asks a question or asks how things are going and gets the feedback, they not only listen but make changes! This is the true sign of a team that gets and has IT! If you have career aspirations, they create a path for you to follow to help realize your dreams. They are not perfect but try perfectly hard to always be as close to that as possible always owning what they have done right or wrong. The Culture continues to change with the help from all of us. It starts at the top and we are blessed to have great leadership from our team that also gives us the support to create the environment we are driving for in such a wonderful place to work. We are a family of people who care and truly make you feel like family. The level of care that we see is like no other company I have ever worked with. May it ever be!
Promotes work life balance. Cares and listens to the employees. A company you can truly trust.
Healthcare, but so are most companies out there and they continue to work on making it better.
IT Support / CCI Enforcer (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – November 15, 2018
Every day you could do things that help the company move forward and nobody knows it. They only look to see if you did some items that was not important to the daily operations. Too many people standing around talking non work related items and nothing gets done
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Legum & Norman – October 30, 2018
I have loved working for Legum & Norman (an Associa company) since starting here in 2017. The office and its staff provide for a wonderful work environment, and I enjoy my job daily. My immediate manager is wonderful- the best I've ever had.
My only criticisms are that: - The extended, non-immediate management leaves a lot to be desired, and - I wish management would stand by Associa's strict rules about smoke breaks.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 28, 2018
There is very little training for any of the departments here, and if you are in operations, you will not receive the support from your supervisor. You will be reprimanded and demoted without being given any facts behind it. Upper management does not share details of goals for the company, but you are expected to deliver anyway. The Dallas office has so many problems of turnover, no one can learn the job before leaving. There are unrealistic expectations of the Community Managers and other departments as well. Very poorly run company.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Palm Desert, CA – October 17, 2018
A typical day at work. There is no such thing. Every day there is something different to come into. I have 3 managers and am on two committees. I cannot say my days are always the same. Thank the Lord.
My managers always acknowledge me for my good work as well as I do to them. I have now been here for two years and I pretty much learn something new each day with each program we use. I chose to improve my knowledge because one day (soon) I will be a manager. I would like to know that I have become a great impact on our company. I tell everyone internal/external how great working for ASSOCIA is. We know we are not just an employee but family.
I would have to say the hardest part of the job is, well I can try to rewrite this sentence a million times but I guess I can't really say. I am a positive person and strive to have good days at work no matter how many curve balls are thrown. The MOST enjoyable part of working for my job is knowing I can go to anyone here in the office to talk to. Weather it is work related or my own personal matters. Everyone here are all great, intelligent and caring people.
The support that I have received from my Manager is invaluable. She has been a great mentor and an inspiring person to work with. I Have learn so much as well as she has let me implement my own ideas and together we have made a great team. The staff litle by little has been settle down, this is a start up so we been having a lot of new employees. But after one year I think now we have a great housekeeping team, a great front desk team and we support each other. The hardest part of the job is dealing with some residents that have very very very bad manners. I feel happy coming to work every day.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Campbell, CA – October 15, 2018
There is a lot of teamwork but a lot of demand. The culture of all upper management really thrives on positivity for the better of every employee. The hardest part of the job was working with other temps who didn't take their jobs seriously. The most enjoyable part of the job was working together for meetings and deadlines.
Director of Maui Operations (Former Employee) – Kīhei, HI – October 11, 2018
Associa purchased Certified management, a small Hawaii based company. There was a lot of issue with the turnover process including delays in software and equipment. Overall Associa handled the merge very well. After the merge Associa purchased another management company and then merged them into Associa Hawaii.
Collection Manager (Current Employee) – Palm Desert, CA – October 3, 2018
I am very happy I made the decision to leave my prior job after 12 years to join the DRM Associa team. From day one the team made you feel right at home and appreciated. I feel the executive team keeps you very well informed.
Everyone goes out of their way to help each other.
Assistant General Manager (Current Employee) – California – October 2, 2018
Assoica/DRM is a very special place to work they are like family to us all. I have never met a better President and Controller in my career. Love them both. I am an assistant general manager, I have been in property management for almost 9 years. I love my career. This is a position that will never let you sit still. Which i crave. The homeowners keep me on my toes, since i have always been onsite and this is where I belong. I am a people person so this job is a perfect fit for me. Glad to be a part of this team.
We were recently blind-sided by a leadership change and realized that our opinions and feelings were never truly valued. Now, we've been cut out of all decisions and often find out about changes after they happen. There is no longer a "leadership team", just one leader. Our pillar of "family values" only serves one family (and it's not the branch or the team here). We don't feel supported by corporate leadership, because they orchestrated this change. Luckily, the remaining members of our team are committed to our branch and to each other. It's making all of this disappointment a little easier to handle. It's a shame because we've all spent many years here and our faith in the company has really been shaken.
Great company to grow with and very respectful of all
Administrative Supervisor (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CO – October 1, 2018
I have been with Associa for over a year now and I feel that this is a great company to grow with. They are very proactive about career pathing and will help you out every step of the way. They offer health, vision and dental benefits, gym membership reimbursement, 401K, phone plan discounts and many other benefits that I have not yet utilized. I also feel very respected at this company. Our leadership team's doors are always open and they want to hear your opinions and thoughts. All of the employees in our office are very professional.
