      Pros

      Mostly casual work environment, depending on manager schedule can be flexible, recognition culture for onsite associates and Sr Mgmt.

      Cons

      Company is run by old fashioned, older white men. Very behind the times in technology, starting vacation time/PTO, and other benefits.

      Pros

      Inclusive, safe place to work with many opportunities across the country. Pays very well.

      Cons

      As with all large publicly traded companies, you can sometime get lost in the numbers. At the end of the day it's on us to nominate ourselves for recognition and best opportunities.

      Pros

      Avalonbay is one of the best companies out there to work for. Company is stable, structured, and ran well. I have worked with very smart and hardworking individuals and learned a lot about both sides of the business.

      Cons

      There is a big push for change and the never ending initiatives with no sunset strategy consumes your time enough to prevent you to do your job.
