    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AIMCO full-time

    Pros

    None to speak of; just a depressing place where your contributions just don't matter.

    Cons

    Aimco continues to shed 60+ year old workers. Also has become too PC. Company has shed most of its corporate staff to protect senior management bonuses. Has become a very unhappy place to work .. full of backstabbing politics and a two-faced culture.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to an entity that will rebuild it into a good company with great people instead of the puerile, bean-counting snowflakes that are left.

    I worked at AIMCO as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It had good work life balance and people appeared to be nice. But always wondered what management was really talking about employees behind closed doors.

    Cons

    Mechanical Engineer managers thought they knew everything and would not listen to others ideas. Engineer managers buried employees in repetitive documentation that are not value added. Why do you need to fill out a CAR form (corrective action form) so you can fill out the needed CAR that has same information.

    Advice to Management

    Your production staff have great ideas. Please, listen to them instead of degrading them.

    I worked at AIMCO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are none. The overall compensation was surprisingly reasonable.

    Cons

    Office politics central, all everyone does is have meetings and then more meetings about those meetings, terrible management, revolving door, poor training, extremely low-morale, poorly organized, crappy part of town, too big for its own good, managers seem to have no idea what they're doing and EXTREME micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how this company has survived over 40 years.

    Pros

    Get to run your region how you see fit. Not a lot of micromanagement. Get to work with world class end users.

    Lack of communication, management and guidance. Low compensation for the industry. Only certain accounts have access to newest products. Years behind Market Leaders in Technology and large gaps or no offering in emerging markets.
