clicky and catty
Property Manager/Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMay 28, 2019
If you are not part of the "good old boys club", it doesn't matter how good you are at your job, you will never get any recognition for it and they will find a way to push you out. Even the different teams with in the company are very catty and segregated. There is no transparency with upper management, they will lie to get you to do what they want then never fallow through with their end of the agreement. They care more about making an extra $ than they do customer service especially to the long term residents.
Pros
Company events, decent pto
Cons
Management, hypocritical policies

Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMay 2, 2019
Typical day at work may be a busy day but if overwhelming the people in the office are always willing to help. This company lives by their mission statement and core values which is great for residents AND employees. You are always evolving and learning with this job. If you want something challenging but rewarding, it is a great job. They value their employees just as much as the people living within their communities.
Pros
Paid team building activities, Company outings, opportunity to grow
Cons
None.

Stressful, job security, more taking than receiving.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEFebruary 12, 2019
For the amount of money received they place a lot of responsibility on employees. Maintenance rotated off on call, snow removal can occur any time, and can be expected to stay late on a regular basis. Upper management likes to micro manage supervisors so in return you get the short end of the stick. This employer seems to have a very high turn over rate as well for the maintenance field.
Pros
Company events occasionally, job security
Cons
Schedule, micro managed, low vacation time

Thank you for your feedback on Indeed, we greatly appreciate it. At CIP, we understand that snow removal can be extremely tough and unpredictable. We greatly appreciate our co-workers and try to show this by providing extra pay on top of regular or overtime pay, cold weather gear, and clothing allowances for our snow removal teams.

Poor place to work
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEJanuary 6, 2019
Management is horrible. Too much bureaucracy in place, due to the lack of trust from Management, to achieve the level of performance desired. The high turnover rate speaks for itself.

CIP is an excellent company to work for. Great upper management, they are always so supportive. The benefits are great. There is opportunity for advancement, if you do great! They give you all the tools and training you need to succeed in your role.

I would highly recommend working for CIP, it has been the most pleasant and exciting place I have ever worked. You learn so much about property management, customer retention & more.

Do Not Recommend
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEAugust 4, 2017
Everything is done by upper management, I worked at 2 of the larger properties. Leasing consultants are just there to get yelled at and do most of the grunt work. To get a manager position you do have to be friends with the right people, they do not promote based on experience or ability to do the job.
The pay and discounts are not worth the stress and chaos that you have to deal with.
Pros
Company Events, Rent Discounts
Cons
Stressful, Bad Management, Bad Pay

Assistant Property Manager
Assistant Property Manager/ Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEJuly 3, 2015
Decent pay for industry standards and nice rental compensation if you live on site or at a "sister" property. Upper management doesn't understand needs of day to day operations and lacked involvement at times. Then again a lot of micro-managing going on at the actual apartment complex. A lot of promises unkept when intially accepted job. CIP likes to move around their employees to different apartment complexes, which never made sense to me. One of the joys of property management is getting to know your property and the residents that lived there. That was the biggest complaint I heard from co-workers while employed.
Pros
Decent pay, rental compensation, well known company
Cons
Moved to different properties, too much of a corporate feel when a lof of tasks could be handled on site

Great Company, Great Management, Not so Great Pay
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NESeptember 19, 2014
A typical day as a leasing consultant is to respond to any leads, set appointments, give tours of apartments, help any residents with any problems they have, and work as a team to make sure the complex runs efficiently.
I have learned more skills on how to sell and how to work with prospects. This has developed my sales and I have learned a lot on how to run a company/ complex more effectively.
Management here is great. They make sure every lead is contacted and the communication is spot on. They answer all questions and if they do not know the answer, they will find it out for you and not leave you without one.
You could not ask for better co-workers. Most people that work here have to be able to keep up with constant change and are like-minded individuals. You will not have lazy employees because they will not last as a Leasing consultant.
The hardest part of the job is that there is down time. Summer is crazy, but all the months after can be kind of dull and there will be times where you are looking for anything to do.
The most enjoyable part of the job is selling apartments. They keep stats on everything and it is fun to see where you rank up with all the CIP properties. Plus you get commission.
The only thing with commission is that it is capped. This is annoying because you could sell an apartment for $500 and receive the same commission for selling one at $1500. So pay here is not the greatest. Also managers do not make enough for the amount of work they do.
Pros
Workplace, environment, training
Cons
Low pay, down time
