Pros

it's a great place to work at with room to advance, I've met great people through out all this time that'd helped me to grow with the company.

Cons

transparency needed between community manager and maintenance manager standard. Lack of communication sometime.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Arlington, VA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA

    I have been working at AvalonBay full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is nothing good about the company, you get regular benefits package, except for the rent discount in any of their properties, which after you leave the company they eF you up and make you pay some ridiculous extra charges.

    Cons

    - Discrimination ( not a single person of color is in the management)
    - Poor career opportunities (if you are not white american, can't achieve anything there)
    - Hours - make you work crazy hours and no appreciation for it

    I can go on and on about whats wrong with the place, just stay away and don't work there

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at AvalonBay full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Training and cross-training opportunities
    Trying to provide more work-life balance. Definitely better than CPA firm rat race

    Cons

    Starting salaries are low but sometime have the opportunity to advance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starting salaries that were higher would attract better/more stable employees
