The organization has various assets that are beautiful. The leadership lacks and there is an overall disorganization when it comes to operations that can be difficult and frustrating as an employee.

Analyst, Development (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 2, 2018
Got lost in the politics of this organization. While I believe there could have been a much better working environment, the inner circle of the management gets treated much better than the rest of the employees.

Business oriented company
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 23, 2018
CIM Group is a very straightforward business oriented company. The company only thinks about their bottom line and not about the employees. I respect it, they pay well. If you can work for CIM, you will develop tough skin and plenty of investment knowledge along with business tools that will help you succeed at any company. Do you job, learn get paid and retain information for growth else where. This company is not made for the weak.

Typical Day as a Receptionist
RECEPTIONIST / OFFICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 13, 2018
Coordinate conference rooms shared by 2 different companies while managing all incoming guests, catering, deliveries, and phone calls.
The hardest part is that you learn to multitask to no ends under little to no supervision as you sit in an empty waiting room for 9-10 hours a day. You may receive certain complaint calls about certain things you have very little to no knowledge of company projects that is managed by your company. Colleagues and associates are however, very pleasing and nice.
Pros
free lunch, free breakfast, fresh fruits, keurig coffee selection, stocked Pantry Kitchen
Cons
Short breaks, long amount of time sitting in solitary, a sudden rush of everyone needing your assistance with everything possible.

Very hard to get ahead and no job security
N/A (Current Employee) –  CAJanuary 11, 2018
You are never safe working for this company. People come and go without notice. You never know if you're safe to work another day or if you're gone the next. Very uncomfortable feeling. Worked hard for over 3 years and never received a normal raise or promotion. You're a number to them not a person.
Pros
Coworkers were very nice. Holiday party was fun.
Cons
No raises or promotions. Don't care about their employees.

Commercial Property Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 14, 2017
There was a great team at my property. They have a wonderful on-boarding process and corporate trainers that are approachable and helpful! Unfortunately, there are not as many benefits for employees that do not work in the corporate office (California)

Good company, overall support good, training for company protocol is lacking
Dual Asset Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 5, 2017
As an employer, CIM pays very well. Amount of workload is stressful. Based out of California this company buys and sells properties continuously. Their presence in the Dallas market has diminished significantly for Multi Family Management.

A good to learn on the job.
Assistant Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJune 1, 2017
Good place to learn to get your teeth cut in property management. Overall culture is decent the accounting department is stellar. Head of Property Management tends to bully you and can be verbally abusive. If you have thick skin and cover your bases you will do well.

Company Growing Like Crazy But No Support Structure
Property Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 23, 2015
Company has some amazing platforms and an expansive, multi-faceted portfolio. However, it is lacking in structure, organization, and employee development. There is high turnover and minimal investment in developing their employees. The history of the company is substantial and they have gentrified, re-purposed, and developed in areas where it has been needed most. Unfortunately their expansive efforts do not yield in a long term devotion. The company is growing and evolving and can be an exciting and challenging environment. That being said, it is not the place for people who are not adaptable to change and the office politics reflect more of a mom and pop culture versus a structured corporate environment.
