I worked at AvalonBay Communities full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

pay was avarage at $15 plus 75 per lease and renewal
many good ideas for a company
the people they got from Archstone were actually very nice and cool

Cons

They expected people to make sweet lemonade out of rotten lemons
Absolutely poor training for first time leasing consultants.
All about the numbers
Unprofessional managers
Arrogant associates
Many good ideas yet poor execution of those ideas
Did not like to pay for overtime and were cheap on materials

Advice to Management

For a company that is big like this, you should train people better within your 90 day period so that you could yield more from your investment. Stop being so darn cheap on overtime and materials.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AvalonBay Communities full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is nothing good about the company, you get regular benefits package, except for the rent discount in any of their properties, which after you leave the company they eF you up and make you pay some ridiculous extra charges.

    Cons

    - Discrimination ( not a single person of color is in the management)
    - Poor career opportunities (if you are not white american, can't achieve anything there)
    - Hours - make you work crazy hours and no appreciation for it

    I can go on and on about whats wrong with the place, just stay away and don't work there

    transparency needed between community manager and maintenance manager standard. Lack of communication sometime.
