    An educational and rewarding experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Archstone

    Pros

    Training was readily available for any situation, upper management was accessible and made the time to get to know the employees at all the properties, advancement was possible and the team was one big family.

    Cons

    The company was bought out so it no longer exists. The only other con was the required corporate apparel - black suit and white shirt everyday gets old and our customers and residents felt it was stuffy.
