    I worked at AvalonBay Communities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, strong senior management that is friendly and approachable, great internal resources to provide support to developers. Great reputation with with strong balance sheet and well-established platform and procedures.

    Cons

    The consummate 800-pound gorilla, they are not nimble. New ideas require extensive study, and the analytic discipline can border at times on paralysis by analysis. National contracts/standards with individual providers for items like signage, naming, and creative design can be very limiting to flexibility. Somewhat of an east-coast bias with over-emphasis on pedigree.

    Advice to Management

    Great overall place to work - just focus on maintaining balance on appropriate amount of study and research with being nimble.
