    I have been working at Greystar full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Greystar has provided me with the opportunity to grow professionally as a Community Manager. They have excellent training, smooth on-boarding procedures, and a huge support system to lean on during trying times. Employees are provided all the necessary resources to do their best job. The culture promotes growth from within and a great salary/benefits package. Greystar excels in both career and personal growth, they really...

    Cons

    Greystar does demand more from their team members, but if you are like me, there is nothing more satisfying than the feeling of accomplishment a full work day brings.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't change anything about my superiors.

      I worked at Greystar full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      You'll learn A LOT with Greystar. It's a great place to build skills, learn everything "property management" related and it's a great resume builder. There's lots of support systems in place, learning opportunities and plenty of room for growth.

      Cons

      Very high demands - Greystar expects a lot out of it's people. But it's what makes them the best. RPM's and other On-site support roles are high stress, 50+ hours of work per work and require you to run on Empty. Greystar touts "work life balance" but does little to support this effort.

      Advice to Management

      Walk the walk when it comes to "work life balance."

      Greystar is very big management company, so you pretty much have job security where ever you go if you are doing your job correctly.

      I have been working at Greystar full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I have worked at Greystar for 3.5 years, in two different cities and two different roles on the corporate side. I am overwhelming grateful for the growth potential, mentorship opportunities, and fulfillment I get working for this company. More importantly, I get to bear witness (often in close proximity) to intelligent and capable national leadership. Greystar is a strong force in the multifamily industry, globally, and...

      Cons

      While my 3.5 years has been, overall, favorable. As some of our regions grow quickly, it can place a noticeable strain on our teams, especially at the property-level. While more jobs open than people to fill them, it always seems like someone is covering their own role and part of a vacant one. I hope that normalizes soon and allows us to more intentionally develop our people rather than constantly moving them. • At...

      Advice to Management

      We should be administering exit interviews anytime a team member leaves. It feels like we've been sweeping some criticisms and feedback under the rug.
