    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 Employee - Graphic Designer - Marketing Department in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - 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!

    Pros

    No working on the weekends and nice views of the foothills

    Cons

    They label every position incorrectly which is misleading, meaning they hire designers but truly want production artists. They don't care about your opinion and design process nor in innovation and pushing design and experience to the next level as they preach in their values. They push a corporate culture on their employees, but truly not one member of management practices what they preach. Designers are brought in as temporary contractors with the proverbial carrot of a contract-to-hire with no real intent on hiring you. There have been several contractors who worked there for 2+ years and then were suddenly let go. They talk about not having silos, aka cliques, but the marketing department is notorious throughout the company for having them which makes your job way more difficult if they don't let you in at all. Oh and the pay is on the low end of the scale with no opportunities for growth or promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your design team and allow them to do their job. You constantly back the field and project managers when you're supposed to be the designer's management and be apart of the design team. As designers we all went to school and learned the fundamentals of design. The designers were hired for their skillset yet are never allowed to bring that skillset to the party.

    Pros

    Aimco embraces change to the fullest, and methodically rewards outstanding achievements. They aspire to be cutting edge in all practices

    Cons

    work/life balance is not as regarded as they portray and changes are not communicated well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the input of your site teams, and trust that they are able to make good decisions rather than downplaying their role and input as "mere site employees"..
