Its a great NEW company with alot to learn
Leasing (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLJuly 7, 2013
Pros: pay is good
Cons: no stability, no job security, constant changes, no structure
Avesta is great company... they pay is well but it comes with headaches. your job title changes, demoted, and the managers change all the time. There is no stability. Avesta Fires people with no warning. I had the pleasure of working for this company and enjoyed it till recently. Like I said they are a good company but have a lot of growing to do. They – more... don't value their long term employees either. – less

Positive goals, good outlook, plenty of work to do.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee), Clearwater FLJune 5, 2013
Pros: gas allowance, lots of pto, paid vacations, health, dental, vision, bonuses
Cons: on call 24/7
I worked for Avesta for close to a year, just about lived at my properties how much I was at them working. I was on call 24/7 and did the job thoroughly because I admired the people running my department and felt like I could grow with the company. I was taken care of very well financially for my position as a Senior Maintenance Tech and the upper management – more... at Avesta were overall good people that have a positive vision. The properties need a lot of work, so if you're not a self starter this company probably isn't for you. They compensate their employees well and I think it's only going to get better. I think that is good because it's a very strenuous and laboring job. Most the communities Avesta buys are C grade struggling properties that other owners had let fall into oblivion. The Avesta message is to take these properties and restore them back to respectable living quarters. Avesta only wants the best talent because they are growing rapidly and need people that know what they're doing and love to do it. It's a good company and it has some very good rewards. Watching communities shape shift is really spectacular and that's what this company does. They change neighborhoods and they need good people. I'd work for them again. – less

Fast growing company with a laid back but competitive atmosphere
Property Administrator (Current Employee), Tampa, FLJanuary 15, 2013
I personally execute property negotiations, acquisitions, title review, document preparation, closing, property research, and property inventory, maintain relationships with government agencies, file evictions, create and distribute all legal correspondence for 5 major counties.
I have learned much through my experience at this company; I came in with – more... admin experience but had no background in real estate/property management. Most of my responsibilities now I picked up on through on the job training. I personally believe that one of the best ways an employee can learn is being handed a big project and being told to "figure it out". There tends to be more retention as a result!
Management is very laid back and there is really no "micro managing" that occurs - there is a very stringent interview and screening process when bringing in new teammates, and, as a result, management trusts that the employees are capable of handling their tasks and daily responsibilities. However, they are always here to help if you need it.
The hardest part of the job is the long hours that need to be vested into it; our department in particular is somewhat short staffed but the daily responsibilites still need to be done. I tend to find myself on my email at 2 o'clock in the morning on a regular basis!
Ultimately, I love this job and the experience I have gained from it. They have treated me extremely well and I truly believe in this Avestas mission and values. – less
