I have been working at Archstone

Pros

The benefits and "perks" they offer are good. The working hours are standard but better than others. The housing discount offered is great.

Cons

Upward mobility is more stringent on inside employees than external candidates
Most internal promotions are already filled by someone who was groomed for management positions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you are planning on going public with the company then you should explain this to the empolyees, not tell them we are going to focus on sales.

    I worked at Archstone

    Pros

    employee discount on apartment rental

    Cons

    only given 7 days to move out if you leave the company
    almost impossible to advance unless you "know people"
    it's all politics

    if your supervisor decides they don't like you and don't want you there, you will be written up for everything possible little thing (even if it's made up) just so they can build a case against you to HR and fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop treating employees so badly and so unfairly and pushing them out because the more you push out, the more the word of mistreatment spreads, the harder it will be to find employees and the company will go down (which it is anyway)

    I have been working at Archstone

    Pros

    I have enjoyed the relationships I have built and I have made some great friends.

    Cons

    You feel that you are very expendable even if your a hard worker & good performer.
    There is a lack of compassion for both employees & residents.
    The Benefits are ok but not great, I would not live @ a Archstone.
    Pay is not good & they overtax your bonuses
    No room for promotion, experience does not count.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To listen to your employees & to show some compassion when you have people that work hard for your company.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
