Community/Property Manager (Former Employee), New York, NY – September 10, 2014
Pros: constantly growing portfolio
Cons: failure to understand the ny market
I began my work at AIMCO as a leasing specialist but, was soon discovered to be well suited as a property manger for their newly acquired Harlem portfolio. This project consisted of taking old, run down, low income housing apartments and turning them into market rate units. I learned a lot about the rehabilitation process of existing units as a result – more... and worked closely with the construction department. I had a great working relationship with my co-workers and was consulted on the rehab work from a management perspective. The most difficult part of the job was that this was a neighborhood in transition. It wasn't always safe the existing tenants weren't welcoming to new management. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was making a significant contribution to the changing landscape of the area. – less

Corporate (Current Employee), Denver, CO – July 17, 2014
Pros: fun events
Cons: terrible pay and benefits, poor management, little advancement
This is just an okay company to work for. They tell you it is a jungle-gym for career growth, but most people that you will talk to will tell you that's a lie. The pay and benefits are not good. A new culture was rolled out, but not everyone believes it. Coworkers are nice, for the most part. There is a great program where they have events that are – more... really enjoyable. Also, they have a great philanthropic program, which has great activities to participate in. – less
N/A (Current Employee), Washington, DC – July 16, 2014
Pros: weight-loss due to stress
Cons: overworked/underpaid/under appreciated
By far one of the worst companies I have worked for. The managers are NEVER around but LOVE to bark orders to you through email. They don't train their employees efficiently, resulting in angry/disgruntled residents. You are required to do all this work but only given 35 hours a week to do so. The pay is terrible, and the commission is lowered every – more... year. The only people paid well are leasing consultants who are required to do absolutely NOTHING but sell a dream through model apartments. Meanwhile, the people who actually do work get to leave the office overwhelmed and saggy eyed.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY IF YOU HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT!!!!!! – less
Leasing consultant (Former Employee), Philadelphia pa – June 4, 2014
Pros: the residents
Working under the new resident relation manager is absolutely the worst, she's is an under qualified employee that pushes her work off to her staff. The management there is by far the worst to work under.
