  • Keeping San Francisco beautiful is important to us and our employees and why we choose to help clean up Golden Gate Park this year as part of our annual Volunteer Day activity.

    We also had a blast playing kickball and enjoying a BBQ in the park after work.

Veritas Investments – Why Work For Us?


Veritas Investments is a real estate investment manager that specializes in owning and operating mixed-use multifamily and retail properties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Founded in 2007, Veritas manages nearly $3 billion in real estate assets in San Francisco and the Bay Area, including nearly 300 apartment buildings in the city of San Francisco alone, on behalf of institutional and individual investors. Many of its properties are classic, distinctive buildings located in some of San Francisco's most storied neighborhoods.

Through its privately owned family of companies, Veritas offers investors the advantages of a vertically integrated platform that includes property acquisitions, finance, asset management and reporting, project management, leasing, property management, redevelopment, and sustainability management.

Overall, Veritas works to enhance properties through focused strategy, a clear vision, and a deep understanding of each community landscape.

This wide-ranging team of in-house professionals enables the company to move quickly to capitalize on emerging investment opportunities and execute efficiently on strategy – with tight controls every step of the way – to deliver superior financial performance to investors.

Veritas Investments strives to foster a dynamic, collaborative work environment where all team members contribute and all voices are valued.

The culture emphasizes personal initiative, leadership, accountability, integrity, teamwork, honesty, and trust. The company features a collaborative and collegial organizational structure and employs self-motivated individuals who seek to innovate as they solve the challenges they face on the job.

The company looks to provide each team member with opportunities to develop and contribute, both professionally and personally. The company also works to nurture each person's talents while rewarding his or her achievements.

Veritas Investments dates back nearly 20 years, with the firm having grown out of the initial success of property investments made by Founder and Chief Executive Officer Yat-Pang Au.

Mr. Au is a San Francisco Bay Area native and self-starter who, as a youngster, fixed coin-operated laundry machines to help the family business. He acquired his first investment property in 1996 and then built Veritas from the ground up by following a straightforward strategy: acquire classic properties, make upgrades to improve the resident experience and property values, and work within the community as a good neighbor who values the past, while looking to forge a better future.

Here's how Veritas has grown from Mr. Au's first apartment building in Silicon Valley to become one of the largest apartment owner/operators in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    I worked at Veritas Investments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good culture. Good managers and chance to move up in the company. Very laid back culture but everyone also works hard.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Besides the free snacks who would want to work here. I think that they could do more in terms of benefits

    Advice to Management

    Great company

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Veritas Investments (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview.
    In person interview with previous person in the role.
    Given DISC profile to fill out online.
    Follow-up interview with team I'd be joining as well as the CEO and an executive coach.
    Executive coach was one of the most intense interviews reviewing my answers from the DISC profile and clearly for bullsh*t detection. Passed with flying colors and offer was made.
