Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 15, 2018
Decent paying, but inadequate management coupled with residents angered at the promises they are told leads to very frequent deadline issues. It's a job, good enough to get your foot in the door and an alright paycheck but that's about it.
Short lunch, expensive benefits, no good pay raises.
Work too many hours & too many days in a row. You work a weekend plan on working 7-10 days straight. Manager is never there & everything goes to leasing agents & APM. Manager never walks properly & has 0 clue how to run 400+ unit property. You need more experience than a few years to manage this property. I would never recommend anyone to be a leasing agent there. She would ask our opinions & still do it her way. You are never caught up & don’t even have time for bathroom breaks. You will train yourself on the job as she refused to be there to help new employees on how to do things the right way. Worst job I had in my life.
Leasing Agent/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – June 6, 2018
During my first week there the maintenance staff complained about having little resources to work with and a property manager that barely came out of the office and did not interact with employees. Hostile environment. Very little training.

When the weather is gloomy, you may not get any patrons all day. That makes for a long day! This pool's maximum depth on one end is 4'6" so it is an easy place to lifeguard without many incidents other than an occasional running child.
Concierge (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – May 12, 2018
I worked for Morgan just under a year. I never really dealt with corporate folks on any level, but my manager was very receptive and friendly. We had regular staff meetings and events and I felt for the most part that I was well-equipped to do my job.
If I had one complaint it was cohesiveness in communications, but you can have that in any workplace really. It's just very important that information is passed along so no one comes up looking ignorant or inept in front of residents. If that would have been better it may well have been the perfect job but let's all remember, work is called work for a reason.
Unfortunately Morgan doesn't have the best senior team in position. they can make up stories out of thin air and HR without notice terminates you without proof or investigation. Unemployment however saw through their lies and denied their claim and saw it was "unjustified termination" . Even if you were promoted twice in 1 year as I was the senior management team finds tricks up their sleeves if they don't like you. In my opinion some senior managers don't like competition and will create any lie the HR will believe and they don't even need proof. They did recently fire the HR director I heard so hopefully Morgan understands its flaws and grows to be a great company.
This place violates so many fair housing laws which I have brought to my property manager. And was told to listen to my direct supervisor. Would give brand new appliances and fixtures to people with money or white people and was told to save the old stuff for people of color. And so much retaliation when I put in my ressignation. And property manager is not qualified nor ready for the position as well as the maintenance supervisor. I have expressed my concerns to many levels of the company and have been ignored. So I finally quit and lucky documented everything and sent it to fair housing.
Fun at first then it went to boring and managementnwould close the door and would never come out of her office even for questions.she always down look
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – April 16, 2018
Not a fun environment to work in. T he management just always said something to you about anything, even if it was good but never good enough. She always made you feel real small. Management should always spend time one on one with their employees and make sure they understand. Not micromanaging us.
Management one on one and helped with questions and didn't make you look like you are so small.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – April 12, 2018
Management was unprofessional, never had the right supplies to do the job. Lack of help from other employees, they found every day how to make the job stressful. Low staff, housekeeping had to do light fixtures. I was told my pay was going to be one thing but once hired on it drops a dollar. It felt like what ever I did wasn’t enough, I didn’t get a proper training no one should me how to do the job. Everyday more work was added, I just felt like the work was non stop, only time you had to rest was the hour lunch you had to take. Management didn’t want me wearing rain boots in the rain I had to wear gym shoes everyday. I would never go back
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Brighton, NY – April 10, 2018
Management was trash and never had the supplies to do the job right even after telling management we had none to do the job right. Understaffed, always on call, expect to never have free time. Never given the pay that was agreed on for the job. wouldn't work here ever again.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – November 17, 2017
The management in Morgan Communities need to be checked. There is a lot that goes unchecked with property managers. The pay is decent but not enough for the on call service it requires. The day to day job varies.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Watervliet, NY – January 18, 2017
The management is not helpful. Office staff with blame maintenance for things not getting done, but never even tell maintenance there is an issue. Plan on doing all the back up work orders. You will have a lot of them. The company rather get rid of staff than provide them with the real tools to fix a problem. Office staff are not professional.
Awful bosses, do not have supplies needed, do not pay correctly
