    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive salary, collaborative staff, intelligent staff, room for advancement, great company offered perks, amazing culture, community minded programs. You do need to have a positive attitude, and be able to work hard in order to go far in this company.

    Cons

    Commute is a little long, (but that is a personal issue.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aimco has come a long way. I look forward to what the future holds as the company is trending in the right direction.

    I worked at AIMCO Properties full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competetive entry-level salary but not moving forward

    Cons

    Constant change in policies. Hiring then lay-offs within weeks. Not sure what their goals are. Aimco limited their office hours to only several per wee for all of their Denver properties, limiting face-to-face interaction for their residents and prospects and referring everything to an online format or a very faulty phone system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Residents and prospective residents want a personal experience, not a website. This is the opposite of your competitor's trend and the business model for most service oriented companies.

    Pros

    It's a 'fun' atmosphere (that is downright enforced. If you aren't always 'on' at work, you won't make it here).

    Cons

    Terrible management. Micromanagers. Arbitrary firings. Little or no training. Draconian performance reviews every quarter. HR is on management's side. Managers do not advocate for their staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your sub-management employees.

    I worked at AIMCO Properties full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I got my license and certifications and learned real estate.

    Cons

    Aimco do not care about their staff in the MIdwest area. Hard to move up if you are not a white male. Dont match 401K. Excessive management changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. We know what's going on. When you staff comes to HR, don't make them feel as is they are o trial. Hire managers that know what they are doing. Get it together.

    I worked at AIMCO Properties full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nothing, they treat the onsite employees as if they were trash

    Cons

    They cut the long time employees to bring in cheaper workers.If you complained they would say "we have pages of people willing to take your spot".Property managers are on the clock 24/7 with very little home life.I sat on 6 properties until they sold when they sold the last one, they told me they would move me to another one but that didn't happen.They stopped all contact with me and I was left jobless with no warning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing things everyday and stop treating the employees as if they are trash

    I worked at AIMCO Properties full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary and Other dedicated employees. Benifits are good

    Cons

    Senior leadership needs to connect with the products and culture as well as the stock market. All they care about is the final line which leads to so much disfunction it ends up hurting the bottom line. To many changes in policy and the mindset to make leasing an apartment like shopping at a Mega discount store.
    Look at the past 12-18 months and how many Senior leaders left for other opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your field people, leasing consultants, service managers and local leadership. Stop slash and cut attitudes and let your local leaders lead.

    Pros

    I worked with some of the most intelligent individuals in the business and I enjoyed my job.

    Cons

    The work / life balance is very poor. With the reductions in people and increases in workload, maintaining a healthy balance was not possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all feedback and change where necessary. Do not be afraid to correct mistakes. A happy, fulfilled team will positively impact the bottom line.
