    I have been working at Riverstone Residential Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Positive and motivating upper management. Room to grow depending on how hard you are willing to work. Commission with hourly base, potential to make significant additional income through incentive bonuses and commissions per leases.

    Cons

    Hours may exceed 40 per week depending on location and work load, additional hours are not mandatory. Weekend hours are required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work life balance sometimes difficult to manage due to needs and responsibilities. Compensation could improve to help to offset this.

    Pros

    Seem to be very team oriented. Care about employees, leadership, and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Everything they said they would offer, they did not. My Property Manager was not a team player, very selfish. My Regional was also the same. They were very good sales people in getting me to think this was a great company to work for. They could care less whether or not you are burnt out. They do not lead their teams. They could care less if you work ten hour days to complete everything you need to do, as long as they look good in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more team oriented. In meetings, include the "little people" like maintenance technicians, leasing agents, and assistant manager's. Don't procrastinate on your own work to avoid this work falling back on your "team members".

    Pros

    Huge company with tons of relocation, promotion and learning opportunities.

    Cons

    There's no room for creativity, it's a very structured company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to let employees slip through the crack or put in a corner. With the large number of employees, it's very easy for management to ignore the career goals and work with the employees to reach their own personal career goals.

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is that they look to promote from within, when an opening for a higher ranking job comes available they don't jump straight to the interview process they look within first.

    Cons

    Work long hours work life balance may be a struggle for new people to the workforce.

    Pros

    Benefits are ok but not the best you would proabably expect more due to it being a large management company.

    Cons

    So if you have friends with a higher rank than you and you kiss alot of rear ends then expect a promotion other than that dont expect it!! Horrible working living and very unprofessional. There is waaay to much favoritism with this company!!! STAY AWAY!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep you ears and eyes WIDE OPEN and promote people who really deserve it.

    Pros

    Good benefits; A lot of internal promotions.

    Cons

    Top heavy; pay scales too diverse and favors Operations positions; Terrible work/life balance; Departments very short-staffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more respect to the onsite associates who work very hard and are the bread and butter of the company. Treat all support team members kindly.
