    Pros

    Autonomy in my work, excellent benefit package, dedicated senior staff, wonderful work environment. The company really cared about their employees.

    Cons

    It was unfortunate that it all had to come to an end through a hostile takeover. However, once the acquisition happened, the employees were treated with respect and fairly.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you all are doing well in whatever adventure you found after Archstone.

    Once I met the community manager I had to meet two more before I could be approved and go to the regional. Long but well worth it!
