    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.

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

    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.

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

    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!

    I worked at Cassidy Turley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Forces you to think on your feet and take initiative. There were other pros to working here before budget cuts occurred. After that, the office morale suffered a bit.

    Cons

    Personal and professional growth is of no importance to management. Before budget cuts, I was approved to return to school for continuing my education. I decided to continue despite their refusual to continue their financial commitment, but was absolutely floored when my manager actually told me that "education was useless" to them. SERIOUSLY!! I left shortly after that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Education IS important. Thankfully I realized that and I'm making more money now, have a much happier work-life balance and I'm a very productive and integral part of the organization I am with now.

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

    Pros

    Relatively good benefits. Ability to work independently because many managers don't know their subordinants job. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    CT is a revolving door. Good co-workers and managers don't stay long. Sr. Management seems focussed on systems and procedures but you're inundated with reports and checklists and can't get the real work done. Training for new employees in nonexistent. CT seems to grow by acquisition but then fire all the good people they acquire which leaves sattelite office understaffed and underperforming. Worked in a regional office for two years and never met any company execs. If they came to town it was in and out without as much as a coffee break with the staff to see them. My regional office was looked down on as a market dominant company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You better start communicating with the employees and help them understand the vision and make them feel they are impirtant othwise you won't survive unless you're just looking for a golden parachute. Sadly,a bleak outlook for the company.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Nice office space. If you are incompetent but yet know how to be political, it is the perfect place. Perfect landing spot for former Grubb & Ellis employees

    Cons

    No management. Arbitrary policies and procedures. No substance. Talented people are leaving the organization. Management does not deal fairly and honestly with its employees.

    Pros

    The benefits are great! Time off, medical, etc.

    Cons

    Unless you are one of the "chosen ones" from upper management, don't expect your career to go anywhere. Property Managers are overworked and not recognized unless they are in the upper management "clique". Very disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try working on career development for ALL employees, not just the ones that are your favorites.
