    I worked at Apartments.com part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at Apartments.com as a photographer was one of the best jobs I ever had. I traveled, did work I enjoyed immensely, was on track for advancement, and had great relationships with co-workers and supervisors.

    Cons

    D. Burke joined as the new CEO and promptly enriched himself by promptly selling the company to CoStar, who turned it into a low-wage kiddie job with Big Brother as the supervisor. After not hearing from my new supervisor for a month, I knew something was up. My position was taken from me in a wave of layoffs and given to someone half my age willing to work longer hours for less money. Ageism was apparent as everyone I knew over the age of 40 was fired and their positions were given to 22 year olds. I was terminated by a supervisor half my age in a phone call, offered one month's pay as severance and forced to sign a non-compete, non-disclosure form to receive it. Within four months, everyone I used to work with at Apartments.com either resigned in disgust at what an oppressive job atmosphere it had become, or was fired in another round of layoffs. They hired expensive celebrities to pose for their advertising while treating employees like disposable cogs.

    I worked at Apartments.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I loved my clients. Senior living companies are the best.

    Cons

    When apartments.com bought After55, they fired all personnel. We had been assured our jobs would be safe. Instead, it was a wholesale sacking across the United States. Since then, all of our much-loved clients have quit and with good reason. I still get phone calls daily about how awful they are to work with. Be warned, you do not want to work for this company.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits without question

    Cons

    Work becomes your life. The stress level is extreme. They call behind you-in search of a 10 score for Apts.com as a whole but base part of your pay on that score. Big brother is watching you always.

    Pros

    Great coworkers - made a couple life long friends.

    Cons

    Acquisition by Costar killed the company. Costar brought in horrible dated systems and even worse management.
