    I worked at Apartment Realty Advisors full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, good work/life balance, benefits and pay are great.

    Cons

    Some departments don't have a lot of room to grow in, but are rewarded in other ways.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture intact and keep encouraging the family/friend environment.

    Pros

    Great location. Nice perks such as gym and parking. Fun work environment. Nice people. Owners really care about the integrity of the company.

    Cons

    Very long hours. Poor work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same. Take into consideration hours different team members work based on their job duties and offer compensation such as additional days off or late start.

    I have been working at Apartment Realty Advisors full-time

    Pros

    Laid back environment, casual dress code, great way to make connections, was just bought by NGKF which could lead to better opportunities for employees

    Cons

    Complete disconnect between management and staff, no communication between brokers and staff, no raises, small bonuses, the words "thank you" are never spoken, office manager never in the office

    Advice to Management

    Being present would help things run smoother and the overall moral of the team. Instead of trying to find negatives in your employees look at all the good they do for you.

    I worked at Apartment Realty Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, strong "team" environment. If you love hard work and challenge, thinking fast on your feet, and multiple ad hoc projects (all due immediately), you'll love it. If you're the type of worker who needs time to develop a plan of execution for each project, you might be miserable at ARA.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure has been "under construction" since about 2005. Will there ever be a functional CRE?

    Pros

    a lot of exposure to the players in the industry, and quick/full immersion into the markets you are assigned to. Make a ton of new contacts just by doing your job.

    Cons

    you end up working and supporting up to 7 brokers, each with an ego and self-importance about themselves. Basically you have to keep all the brokers happy, and they have to keep all their clients happy after promising them the world, so you're at the rear of the pucker-up train and nobody's behind you.

    Advice to Management

    owners need to invest back into the office more so we have more resources, Don't complain about production and focus and then go spend the rest of the week on the golf course with the same client that never gets you any business.
