    It was so much better when it was HSC!

    Accountant (Former Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsPeople (co-workers) work as a "Team". When there was a deadline, the whole department would pull together and help out who ever needed it. Co-workers are friendly with one another. The benefits are okay.

    ConsThere is no such thing as a work/life balance. And things are done int he "gray area". One manager in particular is a bully. If she doesn't like you, watch out because she'll have you fired. Can't get any work done with all of the checklists that are in place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet people think for themselves sometimes. You might be surprised with what you find.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    good, bad, ugly

    Leasing Manager (Current Employee)
    Silver Spring, MD

    Prosget to work in luxury product

    Consthe company sends its own ppl to glassdoor to beef up the ratings. they treat their people terribly. no work life balance. managers drink on the job. anyone working for riverstone who thinks they are in good company must have been rescued from some form of work-slavery. they have no clue what to wear to work as professional. they only like their own ideas. the practice "privilege" to the fullest. you will never get inot a clique without some form of compromise or butt kissing.

    Advice to Senior Managementgive your workers welfare applications when you hire them because they are going to need it working for you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Riverstone Strong!!!

    Leasing Consultant (Current Employee)
    Tualatin, OR

    ProsAn amazing company that offers emergency assistance to employees, great benefits, incentives and a huge potential for advancement! If you are looking into property management look no further; There is no better place to begin your career in property management! My family works here on multiple properties and in multiple positions, as well as several friends and we love it! No other management company can compare to the opportunities Riverstone affords their employees.

    ConsCompany events are not family friendly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI absolutely love my property manager and regional manager!!! They are both very involved and never hesitate to jump in and help =-). Open door policy!!! You never feel uncomfortable asking them questions and they are always patient and respectful! Hard to find in a supervisor.

    Good company but under paid and overworked!

    Assistant Property Manager (Current Employee)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees accordingly!

    A company that offers great opportunity for growth.

    Senior Property Manager (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThey offer great benefits and salary. If you work hard and smart and perform well, there's an opportunity to advance. Lots of self-guided tutorials and training.

    ConsThey are a third party fee based management company; thus, if your property sales or they lose management, there's no guarantee of future employment with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt addition to third party management, become an owner of apartment communities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
