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.

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Carrollton, TX – April 1, 2014
I started off with AIMCO then BH Management Services, LLC bought them out. I have had a wonderful time working with them both. When you go in to work you never knew what was going to be on your plate,it could be as easy as changing out light bulbs or changing out A coils on a A/C unit in the attic or above a shower, it could be a simple work order or – more... a real nightmare. The holidays were the best, tenants dressing up and all. The little ones were the best. One never knew what they may say or do. We where all like a big family, always working together, no matter how hard things got we were there for each other through thick and thin. – less

Property Management - Assistant Community Manager (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZ – February 5, 2014
Co-workers were fun and productive on a daily basis, it was fast paced work environment where I was in charge of most everything on the property. They want you to get a lot of work done is short amount of time while providing customer service to everyone that walks in the door which proves to be difficult.
