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.

    Decent pay, but company is only focused on bottom line.

    I have been working at Archstone

    Pros

    Good compensation. Fun job with lots of new people every day. They have very nice apartments, so it isn't too much of a challenge to lease them.

    Cons

    Very little feedback either positive or negative. Reviews are based on mystery shops and the shops are almost never accurate. I was there for 1.5 years and I was one of the longest in my position. Tons of turn over in their leasing position because they don't really give feed back, they just fire you if there is any question about service or performance.

    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)
