An Insider's view of Common

What are some social events your company does?

Every Thursday we host the "happiest hour" at 5 PM in our office. This is a great way for teams to mingle and take a break from work while playing chess, checkers, Jenga, etc. with people on other teams over some beer, rosé and mocktails.

Jodi

Senior Manager, Leasing

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Common as Director of Platform, managing growth and operations at our Noah buildings. During a period of rapid growth, I was asked to assist as an “Interim Portfolio Manager” for a few major property transitions. Two months later, I was promoted to Sr. Director of Property Management! Now I manage property operations for all Common homes.

Calynne

Senior Director of Property Management

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We strive to create a culture where everyone is encouraged to search for both new ideas and new ways to approach problems. The “why” matters just as much as the “what.” I’ve found this to be critical to my team’s success as we are always trying to identify new opportunities in our underwriting to improve building performance and be more efficient.

Eric

Vice President, Platform

What makes someone successful on your team?

On Common’s marketing team, I love that success means more than just putting your head down and getting the work done. Everyone is empowered and encouraged to take a step back, look at the bigger picture, and decide what’s really important for our consumers to know about us. It allows us to not get too in the weeds and be the best team we can be.

Molly

Associate Director, Brand Marketing
