Company Updates

  • We’re honored to be named to the San Francisco Business Times/Silicon Valley Business Journal Best Places to Work list, ranking number 19 in medium sized employers.

Prometheus Real Estate Group – Why Work With Us?



We're excited for you to join us in our mission to pursue Good Living for the Greater Good™. This means providing the very best living experience for our Neighbors, while doing good in our communities and beyond. It also means supporting you in your career goals with the very best working experience, and that starts with us having fun in the work we do together.



In an industry that’s all about home, we take pride in the fact that people are at the core of our business strategy. By taking caring of our Prometheans we believe they will take better care of the Neighbors who call Prometheus HOME. That’s why in 2016, Prometheus decided to reinvest into its people by paying 100% of healthcare premiums for all Prometheans and their families. It’s something that less than 1% of large employers do, and something that no other company in our industry does.

Yes, this means that in 2016, Prometheus will pay 100% of the cost of your premiums for Medical, Dental and Vision. The deduction that you are familiar with coming off of your check every two weeks will not be there!


We believe in giving back to the neighborhoods we call home. Our Promethean Outreach and Community Help program (POrCH) gives employees the opportunity to volunteer in our neighborhoods while on the clock. On average, over 200 Prometheans are volunteering on any given day.

Prometheus also donates a subsantial portion of our profits to non-profit foundations focused on education, the arts and health care. These programs ensure that we're active members of the neighborhoods we call home. And it's just what good neighbors do.

Learn About POrCH



Let no great work, large or small, go unrecognized. Our recognition program, TORCH, is based on our values, mission and cultural traits. We want to recognize folks for protecting our reputation and for doing something that creates excellence—whether it’s a service moment, taking a risk, or coming up with a great idea that saves the company money or creates a better life for Prometheans or our Neighbors. A “thank you” is always appreciated, but when somebody really goes above and beyond, sometimes a simple thank you doesn’t feel like enough. TORCH lets us share our appreciation for one another in big and small ways. Every Promethean is eligible and encouraged to nominate (and of course receive). 

Prometheus wants to be there from the first step when you and your family take on the challenge of higher education. SCHOLARS is how Prometheus invests in yesterday, today, and tomorrow when it comes to the education and the growth of both our Prometheans and their family. With our loan repayment (yesterday) and tuition reimbursement (today) programs for our Prometheans, and our scholarship program (tomorrow)  for their dependents, we strive to help those who seek knowledge achieve great accomplishments.

    I’ve just been with Prometheus for 3 months and I’m very impressed with the Company culture and its dedication to giving back to communities. Not only do we focus a lot on social responsibility, but we also see employees as our top priority to take care of (100% paid benefits for you/your families!) I also love the people I get to work with everyday that are so diverse, focused, and open-minded. At the end of the day, it’s the people that make all the difference. There’re just so many amazing to say about Prometheus so come join us!


    I don’t see any cons

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prometheus Real Estate Group (San Jose, CA) in June 2018.


    Once application is submitted a multi-page questionnaire with three video questions at the end, then a brief telephone chat with a recruiter before you are actually granted an interview with a property manager.
