    I have been working at Equity Residential full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company and great communities. They really don't wont to hold on to any community that can't make it. You can make awesome friends along the way . They pay isn't bad if you know what to ask for...but you have to ask! Offers a constantly evolving environment where you can gain a lot of experience.

    Cons

    I've been with Equity for several years but they are tough. If you don't do what your told and don't do it well then your time is over. Smile and take it. Over the many years and changing technology I feel that Equity has let go of its culture in exchange for metrics. You will notice a new metric on your dashboard at least once a month in some MRI release that can track you in a new way. If they could hook you up to a machine and monitor your bodily functions...they would. Be prepared..getting a promotion is going to be the fight of your life. It's all good if you give them what they want (miracles) just learn to how to make yourself look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Calm down. If you die...you can't take it with you so stop acting like greedy children. Our success should not based on preying on our clients but instead working for them...and truly meaning that when you say. Sometimes I feel like I'm going a lot more harm then good. And be transparent this wasn't a problem before, but now its very hard for people to believe you.

    I have been working at Equity Residential full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The stability of the company atracts and maintains alot of long-term employees. Senior leadership maintains a very high level of accessibility. There is great support in all areas of business- Capital Projects, Facilities, HR, Training, Marketing, Call Center, etc. Equity is the leader in multi-family real estate. Offers competitive salaries & excellent benefits.

    Cons

    A company of over-achievers (if you consider that a con, be warned)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the visionary leadership which guides the company to be in the right place at the right time.
