"Company good, management horrible"
What do you like about working at Archstone Apartments?
"The non-management peers I worked with were great - intelligent, dedicated to their jobs and really passionate about their work. It was refreshing to work with folks so happy about their jobs and how they mattered within the company."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Watch your back if you get hired. Depending on your position and department, you'll likely get pitted against other employees to fight the battles going on between managers."
What don't you like about working at Archstone Apartments?
"Upper management was largely clueless - folks in positions that had no business being in that job - HR, IT, Benefits - people like that.Everything was punitive in nature - you couldn't just make a mistake, you had to be blamed and punished for it so someone else could feel superior."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Religion is nice, but leave your proselytizing at home - it's not for a publicly traded company, Mr. CFO. They need a thorough management review from upper level/senior execs down to front-line managers. Hiring friends into management roles doesn't always translate to a best practice, especially when your friend doesn't know what their doing."
