    Greystar

    Community Manager (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsI enjoy working with a very talented group of people who challenge me.
    Greystar continues to grow and I have been able to grow strategically as well.

    ConsNow that Greystar has acquired Riverstone we have nearly doubled in size. It’s a bit daunting to see how competitive internally opportunities in the future are.
    I feel forgotten and more like a number than a person who could make a name for myself.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsVery well organized hierarchy, significant amount of corporate resources, positive and respectful attitude toward its employees, and lots of opportunities if you are flexible in relocating.

    They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk

    Property Manager (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe training is great, the benefits are great, compensation could be more competitive.

    ConsThere is only a handful of people in the Houston Region that can be trusted, but they are overshadowed by the majority. A Greystar "Great" once said it would be our mission to "walk the walk", not just "talk the talk". Unfortunately, there are those who didn't decide to follow her mission. Gossip, backstabbing, showboating, and undermining success is the norm in this top rated company. What a shame...

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf I thought it would matter...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
