"Hellish'' with no time for a 5 min personal break. Constant micro-managing!

I worked at AvalonBay full-time

Pros

If you like to meet new people and help, you will find the day going by very fast at work!

Cons

Commissions/ bonuses are sometimes not paid out on time. Unqualified managers run the place with poor managerial experience.

Hard work is not appreciated. Don't over extend yourself!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put checks and balances in place. Customer service managers should focus more on Customer service related duties not leasing to ensure residents are provided 1st class service.

    I worked at AvalonBay full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many great benefits as compared to other firms. Organization does try to remain true to hiring from within.

    Cons

    Action taken against employees is often very sneaky and underhanded. The wide path of the organizations policies foster a culture of taking only business minded action without considering all circumstances of the associate. While this is true of most companies, this one seems to work more frequently in this manner and associates are not given a fair opportunity to rebut or explain.

    I worked at AvalonBay

    Pros

    People were fun to work with. Could work from home during weekends rather than having to go into office to catch up on work. Enjoyed working for immediate supervisor.

    Cons

    High turnover. Management not really interested in reducing high turnover. Caused moral issues with staff involved in constantly training new personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More planning before implementing changes including trial runs. Assign people to specifically work on implementation of new software of processes, not to do it in addition to regular job.
