    Pros

    Stability, once you are hired they won't terminate you or lay you off. they would rather cut your hours, things used to be good before the economy crashed in term of compensation.

    Cons

    you only work 35 hours as full time, they won't acknowledge you do something right, say happy birthday on your birthday, or say thank you at the end of the year. It takes forever to get promoted unless.. from a special group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To value more the technicians, give them thank you card once in while.

    I worked at AIMCO Properties full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Substantial discounts on company-owned housing

    - Good benefits package (health insurance & matching retirement contributions)

    - Good opportunities for upward mobility and transfers between properties

    - Regular and robust trainings

    Cons

    - Culture at some of the properties is like the worst of junior high: managers frequently whisper and talk behind employees' backs and make fun of them

    - Strong micromanagement / little to no trust in employees to "get the job done"

    - Little opportunity for expression of individuality, or the ability of employees to implement creative solutions to problems

    - Little flexibility in hours / limited work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees; we want to see you succeed, as well, and just need the flexibility to do it.

    Pros

    This company does respect their employees. Pay is fair and bonus program is very good. Support for employees needing assistance is outstanding.

    Cons

    Paperwork workload is over the top. Much confusion with new metrics and lots of turnover in middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training could be a lot better for new employees.

    Pros

    Insurance benefits, apartment discount...that's all.

    Cons

    Lack of organization, lack of commitment to consistency, lack of training, lack of communication, lack of engagement...terrible organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, invest in them...make it a somewhat enjoyable environment to work in. Property Management is not an easy industry for those on-site. It's long hours and sometimes intense customer interactions make it difficult enough without having poor leadership at the helm. It's a shame.

    Pros

    There are no pros, the staff comes and goes because no one wants to be associated with this slimmy company

    Cons

    This company screws people over and lies. DO NOT WORK FOR THEM. Staff rotates monthly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being scumbags and slumlords.

    Former Employee - Corporate Marketing in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Corporate Marketing in Denver, CO

    I worked at AIMCO Properties

    Pros

    Offers almost ever level and type of job from home base to onsite management.

    Cons

    Too concerned with financial bottom line and public appearance due to a political infrastructure. The base of corporate employees are young - under 35 for the most part, and have yet to develop logic and understanding of true business ethics, There is far too much internal game playing for position and creates an almost hostile unspoken workplace with employees afraid to really speak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The gap between the executive level and the internal staff is like watching from a cliff with the Gods of mythology to the frolicking youth below. There needs to me a true meeting of the minds, mixing the generations and seeing that being open to opinions from all directions is a winning combination. You can only throw candy from a parade float to get support for so long, the sugary platitudes will cause a decay in employee satisfaction and dedication. Likewise, those who think they are important soon find they are not and take it out on others. A true team only works when everyone is on the field at some point and a playbook written from all sides.

    Former Contractor - Graphic Designer - Marketing Department in Denver, CO
    Former Contractor - Graphic Designer - Marketing Department in Denver, CO

    I worked at AIMCO Properties as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at the Denver HQ Marketing Dept as a temp Graphic Designer for about 5 months.

    More than anything I was blown away by how much this company (Marketing Team in particular) wants to do the right thing by its employees and customers. It's always looking for ways to improve systems and quality. If there's an issue it usually got solved quickly and without drama - so refreshing for a large company!

    - Excellent onboarding and training
    - Outstanding managerial communication (daily meetings to ensure everyone is on track and not overworked)
    - Very open to new ideas and methods
    - Many internal opportunities
    - Excellent work/life balance
    - Was never micromanaged
    - Wonderful warm people, no drama
    - Well trained, kind and flexible managers
    - Professional atmosphere but still fun
    - Perks like gym, amazing kitchen (mini market and free popcorn), paid volunteer days
    - Awesome looking office (aesthetics!)

    Cons

    - Salary wasn't great
    - A little slow at times, a lot of downtime
    - High temp turnover
    - Temps weren't officially allowed to take part in company festivities (birthday cake, special occasion lunches, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - listening, improving, having fun!
