Great place for service professionals
Concierge (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – October 17, 2018
I have worked here happily since May 2018. I can truly say I have not experienced any of the negativity expressed in the previous reviews. In fact, I have nothing but high praises for my company. I tried to post a review a month ago but it seems it was rejected for being too positive? Seems rather dishonest...
I love the residents, my building, and the people in the leasing office. When people ask what I do for work, I say I'm friends with people for a living. You get 2 15 min breaks and the hold-over policy is only 4 hours, nothing like the other companies that will require you stay an entire shift if your relief doesn't show. There are rush periods (for example, when the residents are coming home from work) like any service based job, but it's about you handle it.
In September I was fortunate enough to be invited to the company trip to Barbados, all expenses paid. I think I talked about this too much in my previous review and that's why it didn't make the cut. I know it sounds "too good to be true" but it doesn't make it any less real, I wish I could post photos. The company has properties in the Caribbean, this trip followed a trip to St. John USVI this past Spring and there's an upcoming trip in February to St. Barth's.
Residents become like family over time, company trips
