Prometheus Real Estate Group – Why Work For Us?

Welcome Home to Our Neighborhoods.

Prometheans are here to revolutionize the apartment industry, and we have over 500 of them working at Prometheus. Most of those you'll find in our Neighborhoods leasing apartments, meeting with Neighbors, completing service requests, monitoring financials, and doing so much more. Prometheans take great pride in their Neighborhoods and live our purpose to make our Neighbors feel part of the Prometheus family and truly at HOME in the apartment experience.

That's why we hire leaders and achievers. People who we believe will thrive within our dynamic, entrepreneurial, creative culture. People who challenge convention, change perspectives and keep us ahead. We believe the employment relationship is a two way street. Yes, we want you to earn a fair day’s pay for the work you do, but more importantly, we want you to say “I AM HOME” when it comes to your career.


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 have been working at Prometheus Real Estate Group full-time (More than 10 years)


    Prometheus is a company unlike any other. The culture, the people, and the revolutionary way things are done in our company is what makes Prometheus the perfect place to call HOME for your career. 100% paid benefits for Prometheans and their families, growth opportunities, and a development pipeline that will keep us growing for years to come are just more reasons that make Prometheus the best place to work!


    Hard to come by. Whenever something comes up or feedback is given that something can be improved upon, it is taken seriously and is quickly considered for change or improvement. Roundtables are regularly scheduled with the executive team and field Prometheans for the very purpose to discuss what is working and what could be better.

    Advice to Management

    I have worked for this company for over 10 years and the only thing I can say is that I couldn't be more proud to work for Prometheus than I am today.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prometheus Real Estate Group (New York, NY) in December 2015.


    The recruitment process was absolutely seamless due, in no small part, to my recruiter, Maria Torres. Maria is one of many awesome Prometheans you'll meet in just a short period of time at Prometheus. Her limitless knowledge of the company and undying positivity were, in my experience, incomparable. Maria never 'oversaw' the hiring process. Instead, it felt as though we worked hand-in-hand and through a collaborative effort we achieved a common goal. The process was effortless and everyone seemed excited which, in turn, made me excited.
