I have been working at AvalonBay Communities full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Spirit of Caring is real. Partners with American Red Cross to hold on site blood drives and offers a company match during times of disaster. Pays associates their full salary to volunteer at company-sponsored events (Habitat for Humanity builds, ForKids builds, regattas, food packing, etc.)

Cons

Compensation a little low in some cases compared to market

Advice to Management

Invest more in formal leadership development - there are great people that have the raw material to lead the company in the future.

    Pros

    Avalon ensures that you are not just an employee but a team member. They ensure that we are heard and understood. I have had multiple training classes, but not just from a trainer who has not idea what leasing is like, it has always been from someone who has (or is currently) doing the exact job that I am doing. I love that we can all get together and exchange ideas, concerns and experiences. What is better is that Avalon encourages and sponsors these unions. I feel like I am part of family!

    Cons

    Seems as though some decisions that could easily be made onsite (lower management) are not allowed and take a little longer to get an answer. I have not been here long enough to see the advantage of this.
