Fantastic place to work

Wow... I just read the one-star review left by the Property Accountant from 2014, and all I can say is that it must have dramatically changed since then! What is true is that you are kind of thrown into it with no formal training. For me, I was given a handful of accounts to work on from three different people, but they were all gracious when showing me the ropes. I took lots of notes, and learning the different systems isn't too difficult.They have MRI for Windows and an older version of YARDI. Neither are terribly complicated to learn. You will need to function of course in Outlook, Excel and Adobe. You are going to print A LOT and do what feels like a lot of redundant duplicate tasks. But, well that's accounting for you! No, no one is going to give you step-by-step instructions. You need to be comfortable learning new things and taking some initiative in the Property Accountant Role, otherwise go back to doing data entry somewhere (bleh!). The managers are all pretty laid back, and everyone working here says the same thing: As long as you get your stuff done, the bosses don't bother you. I've worked at some places where every teeny mistake is treated like the end of the world, but it's not like that here. Everything is triple-checked, and if something is wrong, you just fix it and move on.


Pretty laid back for a corporate environment.


No 401(k) match. What gives?

Horrible pay, horrible management style

Horrible pay, horrible management style. I learned that the work/life balance is more important than pay or working for a boss that is constantly negative.

Great and educational working enviroment

I will for always be grateful for my time here. It was the push start to my accounting career and their total faith in my ability to work hard, be a fast learning and always willing to do more was rewarded with gratitude and job growth.


Great learning experience and job opportunity


The snow LOL. No cons. I loved it here

Don't waste your time. Awful company to work for.

Don't even waste your time with this company. The first week that I was there, I had a total of 5 hours of sporadic training with someone who was extremely inpatient, and would not help me in the future. The accounts that you are handling have hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of funds, or more. I was told from a multitude of people that have been there, there is no training. Most of them had to go on previous paperwork. This is not fair to employees and more importantly, it's not good for the client. My boss was gone the first week. When she returned, I found out that she was talking behind my back. I've had plenty of G/L experience prior to working here. I was expecting training. There is NONE. The second week, I was told that I should look at the prior folders and "Be able to fly." My manager was mad if I asked a question, if I asked other accountants for help, would constantly roll her eyes at me, and as I mentioned before~ talked behind my back. I was called into the assistant controller's office and he asked me if "I still wanted to work here." I told him there is no organization, I did not have formal training, my manager was the epitome of non professional, and the person's accounts that I took over was not willing to help me. This is and I quote- "I am not going to fund someone to sit here with you for a week for training." Great! So he stared at me. I got up and left. He started screaming... I went back to the office. After that he stared at me, I asked if he was done talking. He said yes, and I left. PROFESSIONAL! I was asked to think - 




Well, I can name one accounting manager who should not be in management, unprofessional atmosphere, lack of training, unreal expectations
