Southern Management at a glance
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) –  Greenbelt, MDSeptember 17, 2018
I have worked for Southern management for almost 23 years. The company is very reliable and structured. I have been a leasing professional for most of my time with the company. It is very hard to advance in the company because current property managers never retire. I am ready to move on at this point in my life to see what career choices lie ahead.
Pros
Stability
Cons
No room to advance

Administrative Leasing Professional (Current Employee) –  Oxon Hill, MDSeptember 10, 2018
Southern Management has several communities. Each community is very different. There are some that are very fast paced and others that are not. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement However, it may take years because the turnover rate is very low.

Not bad
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 21, 2018
The pay isn't great, but it's steady work. You can learn a lot by going to the in house school. There are benefits that the company can't shut up about. There's a pension, but it's not a pension. They just call it that. It's just a small fund of money that is fully vested after 6 years. Most people don't ever get more than $70,000 in it. Even after 20 years with the company.

A Great Foundation
Leasing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMarch 16, 2018
If you are interested in property management/ real estate this company will definitely provide you with the education and foundational material you will need to succeed. It's a fun company to work for and they do a lot to engage their employees. However, they tend to be a bit dated with some of their policies and the way they conduct the company. Innovation is not one of their strong suites to say the least.

Great place to Grow!
Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDFebruary 5, 2018
SMC is a terrific place for advancement once you are hired for employment; it is difficult to get it with SMC. My building was purchased by SMC, and my entire team of 23 individuals and I were asked to remain on after the merger occurred. The pay rate increased dramatically on day one! I recommend this company for the younger professional in mind, 25-30, who wants to manage apartment homes.
Pros
apartment home discounts; great vacation; good boss
Cons
Can be a gossip pit at times.
