    I have been working at American Homes 4 Rent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Growth Opportunity; Management is always happy to help and ensure that every employee has the tools necessary to grow, not just within the company but life in general. Teams/managers ensure success is achieved. Coworkers that truly care for their teams well being. Incredible culture. Day to day collaboration with other teams/departments. Freedom to deploy new programs without micromanagement.

    Cons

    Motorcycles can take entire parking space, due to lack of motorcycle parking.

    I have been working at American Homes 4 Rent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Room for growth, benefits, salary, culture, work/life balance, interesting/engaging work (not boring)

    Cons

    Location of agoura hills office, lack of work-from-home options for MOST departments

    Advice to Management

    Implement a work-from-home policy, even if it is just one day per week. If possible, move the Agoura Hills office to either Warner Center or Thousand Oaks.

    I have been working at American Homes 4 Rent for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the best reasons I would say is a pro is that American homes 4 Rent offers a cyclical internship program. I work with many different departments which includes finance, accounting, property tax, treasury, and accounts payable. American homes 4 Rent provides me with many learning opportunities that included many hands on experiences. Another pro is the culture of the firm. I thoroughly enjoy the work environment...

    Cons

    As an intern there were a few dull moments during my shifts. Some task did get a little repetitive, however; its nothing out of the ordinary an intern position would not have gotten anywhere else.

    I worked at American Homes 4 Rent full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    AH4R offers a fair benefits package at a reasonable cost. Employee’s start accruing PTO hours immediately. There are several paid holiday’s that are celebrated throughout the year. AH4R is a well-capitalized company that effectively uses investments to increase its asset base. New positions evolve from this growth giving employees the opportunity to advance their careers.

    Cons

    The Executive Management team at AH4R recognizes that the company’s treatment of its employees over the past few years has been terrible. Fortunately, there are employment websites such as Glassdoor and Indeed that give employees an opportunity to share their experiences in a forum where they can apply a rating to the company and share what they feel are the pros and cons. AH4R’s rating is low due to the number of negative...

    Advice to Management

    There’s a core group of employees that were there during the startup of the company where strong bonds and friendships were formed. If Human Resources challenges any actions taken by someone that is part of this group, that person will go to another individual that is also part of this group that has more authority to ask them to back them, the challenge or concern brought up by HR is squashed. The consequences of this...

    Pros

    Good atmosphere - Growing company - Opportunities for promotion - Benefits are OK -

    Cons

    No paid maternity leave Teams are often performing against each other Direction if often unclear, lower management has lied multiple times. Would rather hear they don't know the answer than hear a lie.

    High school mentality, backstabbing, management that doesn't care. This place will can you for very stupid reasons, and they play favorites all the time.

    Pros

    The option to work from home. We get a lot of time off.

    Cons

    Handling calls from irate tenants when another department caused the problem the tenant is screaming about. The company’s rankings that can be found on a bunch of websites are being falsely increased by the company. If the company wants to increase the rankings, it should be done in a way that is honorable. Look at low score reviews to see if the common denominators can be identified and see what can be done to address...

    Advice to Management

    Let real reviews determine the overall ranking of the company. Any other way of influencing the ranking is fraudulant.

    Pros

    The benefits and nothing else.

    Cons

    Pay. Office Culture. Bullying. Gossiping. Favoritism. No coaching from upper management. You either know it or you out of luck (upper management will not train you). Property Manager workload increases while everyone else is free to roam the office with minimal workload. (Time blocking will not work for this office) Loads of pointless long meetings that take away from your day to assist your tenants and work load. If...
