    Pros

    I worked at Greystar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's the largest company in the industry, so very well known to have on your resume. You'll also meet some amazing people here. The company has general competitive salaries. The benefit package is fairly good.

    Cons

    The department you work in is only as good as the leadership. The company is good, but it (like any large company) has some very poor leaders in some areas. I can honestly say the worst supervisor in my entire career was here at Greystar, and there was simply nothing I could do about it. I have never been treated the way I was treated here (with over 20 years in the industry), and I will never allow myself to be treated that way ever again.

    Advice to Management

    Know when your employees are being mistreated, without having them tell you upfront. Find some sort of system where the immediate supervisors treatment is measured. Hold Directors accountable to the miss treatment of associates within their department.

    Pros

    The residents I truly enjoyed!

    Cons

    There was a lot of manual administrative type work. It took away from giving your focus to the community and the residents living there.

    I worked at Greystar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with different ppl and great residents. You also learn alot about the business.

    Cons

    Super short staffed. You have to lease, help residents, take care of the building, work with prospects, work with future residents, do your Property Manager work and other employees work. Your also in charge of package delivery. You have to scan, mark, and sort 40-60 packages per day.

    Advice to Management

    This is a Billion dollar Industry, higher enough staff please.
