Great company with poor Florida upper management
Assistant Project Construction Manager (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLDecember 27, 2017
Cortland practices their core values very strongly. They truly care about the employees and their residents. The most enjoyable part of going to work every day, hands down is the people. During the interview process you have to take multiple of tests to ensure you will meet their standards. I strongly stand by this company and hope current roles gets straightened out as the moral has gone down.
Pros
Benefits, great pay
Cons
Upper Management

chance to work on great, challenging projects, good pay and benefits, hard working place

Cortland partners
Lead Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Kingwood, TXDecember 12, 2017
The properties are nice and the pay is decent, the problem is its 2017 and you still have to deal with systematic racism whether you are an employee or minority resident. You see a lot of unfair treatment and wrongdoing but you have to play the game if you want to remain employed or live in peace as a resident. All the owner cares about is money and his assets, the people who makes his money comes last. Donating pennies or a few millions as a tax write off don't make you a good individual, treating everyone fair does.
Pros
pay is decent
Cons
very unfair job enviroments

Not a bad gig.
Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Marietta, GADecember 11, 2017
I enjoy the flexibility and competitive pay/ commission. Working at Cortland Partners will nurture your people skills which is a great skill to have if you're into sales, team building, or even looking to go as far as becoming a sales trainer. There are so many different personalities you would have to deal with as a leasing consultant, and so many residents needs. If you enjoy helping and serving people than this can be the job for you. The bonus is the competitive pay. Commission will always beat out an hourly offer for me.
Pros
Commission.
Cons
Work environment constantly changes, and you will have to adjust to new management often.

Great starter company but needs better management
Account Settlement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA 30326November 15, 2017

Pros
Culture is amazing
Cons
management lack managerial skills; lots of works

Alright place to work

The best thing about working for Cortland was fellow employee"s. The property I worked on was run down and falling apart. It was hard and stressful to keep it maintained.

A Joke
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHOctober 8, 2017
Cortland needs to stop worrying about expanding and focus on their current properties. The renovation jobs are sloppy and rushed. There is no communication in the company (or at least they fail in their attempts to communicate)
Pros
pay
Cons
the people they hire and management

Senior Talent Acquisition Recruiter (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 12, 2017
Cortland knows how to hire top talent! Great individuals to work alongside. Long hours are expected, but the company has a strong base of like-kind individuals who are hard working, autonomous, and passionate about exceeding expectations.

Confidential (Former Employee) –  ConfidentialAugust 1, 2017
Cortland has great benefits. Its a hard working but fun environment. The pay is not that great, and management in the Accounting department needs training. I would definitely recommend Cortland as long as you do not have plans to working in Accounting.
Pros
Great Enviroment
Cons
Accounting managers and pay

Cortland Review
Leasing Professional (Former Employee) –  Dallas TexasJune 15, 2017
Overall Cortland Partners was a decent company to work for. The hours were stressful and didn't leave much room for personal time. It was extremely micromanaged and there was a new issue to be resolved daily. The culture was great in theory difficult to implement in reality.
