I worked at AvalonBay full-time (less than a year)

Pros

pay was avarage at $15 plus 75 per lease and renewal
many good ideas for a company
the people they got from Archstone were actually very nice and cool

Cons

They expected people to make sweet lemonade out of rotten lemons
Absolutely poor training for first time leasing consultants.
All about the numbers
Unprofessional managers
Arrogant associates
Many good ideas yet poor execution of those ideas
Did not like to pay for overtime and were cheap on materials

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For a company that is big like this, you should train people better within your 90 day period so that you could yield more from your investment. Stop being so darn cheap on overtime and materials.
