    I have been working at Aimco Apartment Homes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We do the right thing…always! I am proud to say I have been with Aimco for thirteen years! Last year I was feeling the work load was becoming overwhelming and I was stressing out about it! Luckily I had a dream job with another company drop in to my lap! It was a brand new ground up community, closer to home cutting my commute in half and a slight but not substantial pay cut. Well I left Aimco after 12 years of service! It was not long after this that I realized this new dream position was not my cup of tea! My day to day was very lax and consisted of keeping the office and clubhouse facilities clean, and really taking a back seat to all of the maintenance decisions being made. This made for very long days! It was at this point I decided I would not be staying at this “Dream Position”! I thrive on success and the difference I make in the lives of my fellow teammates and residents. I want to make or help make the decisions if I am the closest one to what is actually going on. Guess what.. I had that as a ten year team member at Aimco, however that ship had sailed. Around this time a past Aimco colleague had contacted me saying a position was opening, my first thought was nah, I just left 6 weeks ago! Well then I continued to think about what Aimco had done for me in the past and how they actually made me feel as a team member, and you know you just don’t see that everywhere! After making contact with Aimco leadership and having some phone conversations I was COMING BACK!! Not only did they bring me back with all the benefits I had when I left they even gave me a slight increase in compensation! Upon my arrival after the 10 week hiatus I felt reenergized and felt a different energy coming from Aimco! We truly drive innovation and change! I am sure anyone that is reading this has heard “ Build the Bench” yup we do that here at Aimco, we give everyone the tools and training to get where ever they want to go within the organization. However what I don’t think everyone realizes…here at Aimco we are LOADING THE BASES and the GRAND SLAM is right around the corner. We have a TON of talent working here at Aimco and invite anyone that is ready to invest in their career growth to look into us! If you are the type of person that thrives on results, productivity, success and at the end of the day that feeling of accomplishment you know where to go!

    Cons

    Well I have read some feedback about cons at Aimco and yes some are true, We do work weekends and holidays time to time, We do work some crazy hours at times, We do get calls in the middle of the night, We do make crazy changes in process, We do at times make mistakes. However there is a key word here and it is “WE”! I just want to say this is WORK and that is what We do! People call Aimco home for all of these so called “CONS”

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to recognize team members, ISAT cash is a great program and hope to continue to see this type of thing.

    I have been working at Aimco Apartment Homes full-time

    Pros

    You will work some of the most talented, inspiring individuals of your career who will push you to better... The exposure to other departments, senior leaders and new opportunities are there for you if you are willing and ask for it. I enjoy my job, what I do, who I work with and believe Aimco's invested in me as much as I've invested in them and for that I am thankful.

    Cons

    There will be cons wherever you work. For Aimco, mine are the long hours, non-impact benefits, layoffs, and old processes getting in our way for change and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Try to involve frontline employees in more decisions

    I have been working at Aimco Apartment Homes full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been working with Aimco for nearly ten years. Needless to say I've seen a lot of change. Many of our senior leaders are still here, and some have come and gone. The one thing that has remained constant is the passion and drive of our team! I love working alongside a team of people who strive to be the very best at their trade each and every day.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long hours, but that is mostly by choice. Aimco has a great work place flexibility policy that allows me to work from home when needed. We believe in work life integration!

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating! We like to hear abut your vision and long term goals for the company. People worry when they don't understand our direction.
