    I worked at Cassidy Turley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice Benefits, Respectable Hours, and an overall stable place to work. Depending on department, management may be either great or distant. The team I was on was dynamic and capable.

    Cons

    Difficult to see the company beyond your specific department. There is a lack of development tools, and the guidance one receives is very minimal to grow and develop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regularly reach out to your associates, they may have novel ideas, development goals, and hidden skills that they would not know how to use without guidance and or training.

    I have been working at Cassidy Turley for more than a year

    Pros

    Pleasant people, Fair compensation and benefits. Money spent on employee extras (Ice cream socials, cocktails, . . . ) Generous paid time off policy. Determination to achieve spot on "Best Place to Work" lists

    Cons

    Mass exodus of top talent in a recently-acquired office. People promoted for sales skills have no management or leadership skills. Ineffective managers, support functions perform like they don't know what they are doing. Over promising and under delivering to both employees and clients, bordering on deception. Kool-Aid culture - "'No' is not in our vocabulary" even when it's the right answer. Trying to provide too many services instead of sticking to what they do best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees deeply resent being "bought out", and being lied to as an inducement to stay around. If you are going to provide outsourced services, be sensitive to the culture that your new employees come from, instead of demeaning them for being different. Consider promoting "acquired" staff to build buy-in from their former peers. You need stronger management at the ground level before you branch into new areas - account leads that know nothing about the functions they support are regarded as "empty suits" by the client. You need to be MUCH pickier about hiring payroll and benefits staff - nothing undermines a newly acquired employee's shaky optimism like repeated payroll mishaps.

    A fledgling company with a confused internal structure and no direction.

    I worked at Cassidy Turley full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent compensation with good benefits packages. The majority of management will trust you to do your job and let you do so. Friendly and comfortable work environment.

    Cons

    Being a newly formed company management is lost. Seems to be no unified direction. Power hungry type A's are allowed to run amok. No communication. No opportunities for advancement. Pay raises have disappeared. Talent replaced with drones and 3rd party software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the human beings that do the work. Unify on a direction that benefits the entire company. Management should be made up of people experienced in the field for which they are responsible not just well connected.

    I worked at Cassidy Turley full-time

    Pros

    Has hit the ground running after the downturn. I expect to hear nothing but good things about their profitability over the next several years. Opportunities for promotion are there if you are willing to work long hours to get yourself up to speed. Training is haphazard.

    Cons

    Having trouble staffing to meet growth. Raises too small for the all the effort the staff is putting in during tremendous growth.

    Pros

    The PTO is awesome. You start at 18 days and work up from there.

    Cons

    The compensation is laughable compared to other firms in St. Louis. I was consistently a top producer on my team and I had to beg management to get a 4% raise annually. They don't value their employees and their mindset seems to be that they are willing to let anyone walk over money. They will just replace you with the next college graduate for much cheaper

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hang on to good people. The turnover has to be a red flag!

    Pros

    Great marketing materials and professional company. Fair salary wise and good company leadership. Opportunity for advancement and training.

    Cons

    Very big organization hard to know the company leadership if you are in a support position. Time off very fair and benefits are very fair. The company approves training and encourages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the leaders know the personnel in the field.

    No support, no local talent management, property management assignments on the decline.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Cassidy Turley

    Pros

    -Excellent PTO but when you are understaffed, it is very hard to manage staff's abundant time-off under company policy.
    -Regional management tries with their training initiatives (which are planned by other PM's), volunteer work and occasional company functions but it seems more of a "to-do" no one is excited by these initiatives. Among the property management division, employee morale very low.
    -Ability to work independently with no supervision (other than from client) but this is not good when you need the support or are new to the business.

    Cons

    -Property management assignments on the decline, appears we are becoming a leasing company where former focus of company (prior to CT buying) was property management assignments and landlord representation.
    -Employees are leaving and not being replaced, assignments are being schlepped off on existing managers that already have full work loads. There is no focus on talent management.
    -Upper management is out of touch with the St. Louis "initiatives" managers are being charged with. Most are for the sake of CT's compliance requirements and have nothing to do with our client's needs or methods of operation. The company is inflexible when it comes to these initiatives that our clients could give a crap about. It creates unnecessary work and doubling up of responsibilities. Much of the workload is placed on the PM's (i.e., entering leases, inability to delegate to other staff while on vacation, assistant managers have no approval authority, etc.). It appears that CT was formerly an industrial management company and has not taken into account our portfolio of office. A lot of assignments and client demands are complicated, they do not always fit into your easy property "mold."
    -Communication from upper management is deplorable. PM's are left to "figure it out" when it comes to transitions or staffing but we have no decision making rights when it comes to staffing, has to be handled by the out-of-touch upper management.
    -No salary structure-compensation is VERY inconsistent among employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to your people and what is actually going on in the field so you can better make decisions when it comes to staffing, development of employees and the demands of CT's initiatives.
