    I worked at AMLI Residential full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Management listens to employees (even upper-management, regional, etc). - Amazing "AMLI fAMLI" culture which I thought was really cheesy at first, but then realized how important that is for a strong company to have. There are 70+ AMLIs in the country and you can call any of them at any time if you need something. - Lots of opportunities for growth, being promoted, etc. - Very thorough training from the... start. They don't toss you into the weeds and watch you struggle. Regional manager visits often and you also fly to Dallas (depending on your region) for training as well. - You are recognized if you propose an idea and it's implemented - Even if you quit on good terms, they allow you to come back and keep all your numbers at the numbers/sales of when you left. They call it the boomerang club and make it very easy for you to join them again. - It's a very strong company because the locations of these apartments is prime, so you can take pride in selling a premium product.

    I spent a week trying to think of some so I could complete this post....there aren't any.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly have no advice. The management was awesome. Was able to meet the CEO on several occasions. How many companies offer that opportunity?

    Pros

    Large management company, will train you ( for the most part) , well known company, great policies, great training department, policies are accurate, utilizes one site.

    Cons

    They are paid " up to date" so even if you give your full two weeks you don't get paid your full two weeks so there's no point, EVERYONE talks about EVERYONE, Half the time you'll be doing your managers work even if you aren't paid for it, everything with the company is about who you know not based on work ethic. Will hire people with no experience and they will make more than you even if you've been in the industry... for 3+ years. HUGE turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    What the company stands for is great. From the policies to the discounts and bonus tier program. Personally the company as far as your upper management was terrible. My manager didn't even know we had a rent payment number and has been with the company 3+ years. You should treat the employees who actually work ard better. You should also make sure your managers are doing their jobs.

    Pros

    Great place to work. It is what you make of it.

    Cons

    Leasing agents should get a higher base pay to offset the cost of living increase across the country.

    Advice to Management

    Get advice on the selling process from the leasing agents who are selling(putting heads in beds) not the ones who rate high on phone shops and in person shops.

    I worked at AMLI Residential full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management cares - ALOT - about their properties They do try hard to ecnourage the AMLI FAMLI community Buttoned up to a T. Like really buttoned up. Incredibly high standards Alot of really great people Can have a generous commission if you're at the right property Good opportunity if you're young and straight out of school Great training - ALOT of training, like A LOTTTTTT

    Cons

    Buttoned up. Oh, did I say that as a pro? Well it was also a con. So buttoned up I felt suffocated and handcuffed. Every word you say is monitored (like literally recorded and graded) and your clothes are scrutinized. I had to spend money on an "appropriate wardrobe" and then they changed the standard (I'm poor!) Things get covered up to maintain the shine Strict hours, which can suck if you would like to see... your family (working every sat and sun)

    Advice to Management

    Employees with families may not get to see their kids/spouses if they only get two weekdays off - maybe every other weekend a leasing consultant can get one day off, at least during a slow season. If they want it. I think aiming for gold is great. But there was a constant fear of all the monitoring. Big brother was ALWAYS watching and listening. It was hard to act natural and comfortable under the big eye in the... sky. Honestly, I felt I worked wayyyyyy too hard to barely make a living (but hey, that's the profession too)

    I worked at AMLI Residential full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Health insurance is decent, income isn't bad compared to other companies.

    Cons

    Fear based management, too many politics, gossip, employees are seen as just another number and are given the highest workload possible while keeping the office understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Put people in power who do not use fear based management. Upper management needs to recognize the trend happening. The company is not what it used to be.

    Pros

    Good health and retirement benefits as well as bonus options.

    Cons

    Management is awful there is no family feel which is the complete opposite that you hear when interviewing. Always understaffed so you begin doing things your aren't even being paid enough to do. No matter how much you voice your opinions about issues going on at your property in hopes they will be addressed you are told to sit back "while things are handled" and nothing changes. Our property is falling apart and... management is just watching it happen instead of being proactive. My manager sits back in the office texting away on her phone and playing with her hair caring less that people are piling up outside. They just don't care and it is so sad.

    Advice to Management

    Please realize when your leasing team is reaching out to you there is an issue! We care. We are the ones who handle the majority of the residents as well as prospects. We don't match the standard of quality our sister properties have to offer at all and I would love to see that change, either that or just sell the property, we've been on the watchlist for the past 3 months. I'm sure our manager has nothing to do... with that though.

    Up to now, I've met a lot of great people. My manager is very unprofessional, but everyone else is great. Upper management is great.

    I worked at AMLI Residential full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company has a lot of great attributes. The pay is awesome better than a lot of leasing companies. AMLI also has a lot of training as in leasing 101 classes and customer service.

    Cons

    With all the training that the company spend lots of time and money in, only a coupes of employees and managers take away what's taught. Working for this company felt like I was back in college with kids gossiping all day. Management is worst because they start the gossip. There's a lot of cliques within this company and if you're not part of the "clique" your dismissed for job promotions.

    Advice to Management

    This would be advice to senior management to be more involved internally and inquire about the offices, not only from the managers but from the employees.
