Poor Leadership
Asset Management Analyst (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 24, 2018
The company lacks leadership and sets employees up to fail. Although they advertise as a mission focused non-profit, they fail to support employees and as a result the housing communities suffer.

Very good place to work
Clerk of the Works (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAApril 11, 2018
The company expects that its employees have the skills to perform the tasks that they have been hired to do. Management does not micromanage employees but does expect positive results.
There is serious effort by the corporate management to facilitate communication with employees that work locations other than the corporate office.
Pros
Good place to work. There are opportunities for advancement. Salary and benefits are good.

too inconsistent
Leasing Agent (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 23, 2018
there is no work life balance and management support. The rotating hours prevent you from having a life outside of work. a team work environment is stressed but everyone focuses on self. Management is inexperienced and everything learned is trail and error.

Good Company
Community Manager (Current Employee) –  PADecember 27, 2017
Fair company to work for, Work can be demanding and if new to the business I would not recommend. Training is minimum so if not a fully seasoned manager with the certifications to boot it would not be a right fit.
Pros
time off

Not a good idea.....
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  New Brunswick, NJAugust 29, 2017
I had a poor time with this organization. No support from corporate management, the local manager was a backstabber, she spent most days on her cell phone and all her family were living on the property.
Too much work for one person.
May be ok in other states but in New Jersey, it sucked.
Pros
I'm no longer there....
Cons
Time does not permit.

was a very demanding place to work
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAAugust 21, 2017
a typical day was to check all areas of development ie: trash pick-up, then consult with office as to the work orders that were to be completed, which could include anything from plumbing, electrical to basic clean up.

Work is very fast paced. There is not much time for relaxation or socialization.
Certified Resident Service Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Providence and Cranston RIAugust 8, 2017
The company is a very good company to work for at this time. I am currently looking for part time work (3 days a week Monday through Friday) and if needed I can work a Saturday. I worked for this company full time 40 hours a week and was present at two elderly senior sites every week. I also assist the corporate office in any of my knowledge and experience.
Pros
We are not allowed anything for free. The company is very strict.
Cons
Raises or bonuses based on performance or higher competitive salary.

Productive and Enjoyable Experience
Senior Tenant Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Dorchester, MAJuly 31, 2017
At this position, I have the most gratifying experience working with a variety of people at different professional level such as administrators, contractors, workers and the clients. I had to develop a systematic method of communication among each group. Maintain daily and period data, answer and solve issues pertaining the daily task. Provide support to vulnerable clients (relocating) who felt disoriented by the development of the project. this job required 50 percent office work and 50 percent out site work reinforcing safety and compliance of established policies.
Pros
Professional Growth
