Building Engineer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 21, 2018
Just judge them by the number of positions they have available. Based on their culture and reputation they have have a hard time attracting quality employees.
This company is Very Political, its not about what you know but who you know. This company's claim of having a commitment to integrity? I found out not to be true. I tried to address an issue to HR and Management but it and I was summarily dismissed.
If you are looking for a company that really cares about its employees keep looking. Once again this company is Very Political.
Lead Engineer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 23, 2018
A typical day at work is scheduling your time to get necessary repairs made, inspect and perform preventative maintenance on the equipment you were responsible for. Again ensuring tenant comfort with trying to not let them be aware you were working around them.
Building Engineer Apprentice (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 29, 2018
This company was great starting out but the longer I stayed, I started to realize my lead engineer would never want to show me any HVAC procedures. He would sit in his office and watch YouTube videos and task the rest of us out with projects. This company is all about having a good reputation and not actually taking care of its own. You're just another number like anywhere else.
Interim Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 2, 2017
Great managing team! Willing to support those looking to advance and progress the company's ideals and goals. There is an apparent level of favoritism on the part of management towards select contractors. But for the most part a great company to work for.

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 23, 2012
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Cousins Properties...unfortunately the economy did not allow for them to keep the workforce that they had and they were forced to lower it. I was part of the 3rd layoff that Cousins needed to take. It was 2 years that I will always be glad to have a part of my career. I enjoyed working with everyone there. It was a great team to be a part of. Management treated you as a equal. Great atmosphere and always felt appreciated.
I manage two lifestyle centers in the greater Atlanta area. Cousins gives its management teams a lot of flexibility to use their own style to accomplish a common goal. I have learned a great deal, including budget planning, managing tenant requests and property maintenance. I work with a fantastic team of people. Despite differing personalities, we all bring our unique skills to the table to complement each others' roles.
