    I have been working at Irvine Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You finally get paid out for renewals the month they go into effect and they not only increased the amount for renewals ($50 to now 75) but they have individualized them. Main reason I stay at the job is that my coworkers are amazing people. They have my back and the staff I work with feels like a team. You do get vacation time (but it gets used quickly if you don't get a weekend day off) and also benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels like this job doesn't offer much stability. They recently laid off multiple divisions of the company when we got a new CEO. Many people lost their jobs. Even some on-site people lost their jobs as well. This mainly affected people in the corporate office and the higher up positions but its still hard to believe the company "cares" when all those people were left without jobs. Like I said in the first column, you don't get weekends off unless you are lucky. Your days off may be as such: Monday & Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, Sunday & Monday, etc.

    Advice to Management

    On-site transfers are the worst when it come to us in the office. We have to do the tours like a sales specialist taking us away from our tasks in the office. Although they made it so you should get $75 for transfers within the 60 day renewal period, they need to give the $75 for any transfer that's after 6 months and is an upgrade on the resident's side (going from a 1 bed to a 2). Additionally, stop punishing us for not reaching a goal. Making us work holiday's like Memorial day because we are not at 95% or higher occupancy really just isn't fair. Most resident's who drop by the office that day (like 10 people total) are always surprised or mad that we are open that day.

    Pros

    You learn a lot and wear many hats.

    Cons

    Horrible training or little to no training.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to get it together, way too many politics in the way of doing our jobs. Feels like everyone is running around scared to get fired. Promote smarter people please, you let the good ones that actually know what they are doing go.

    Pros

    The people are great, and the company has taken great strides to develop leaders and create more upward growth opportunities.

    Cons

    2 large layoffs in 4 months have given many employees low trust in their future. Career paths and development has been given but it's still concerning to not know if there is another huge change coming that may impact the ability to stay with this company.
