Concierge (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – January 21, 2017
A typical day at work involves multi-tasking to the max. You can expect to be a police officer, a therapist, tow vehicles all the time, be the complaint center, amd answer a million calls while having a line of people waiting for parking passes.
It's not right to hire someone to work 5 days and then switch them to 6 days.
Marketing (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – September 18, 2016
Be ready to do your best brown nosing. Honesty will get you no where in this company. All they want to hear is that all of the worthless, time consuming marketing ideas are working fantastically, even though the numbers and facts show the opposite. And, if one of your logical ideas does get used be prepared for someone else to get/take the credit. The manager that hired me was the best person in the whole company and transferred soon after I started. In my short time there I had three different direct bosses and countless other "bosses" that had to be answered to, some were never phsically on the property and had no idea about that market.
The hardest part of the job is doing everything that other agents may not volunteer to do, or help with. Such as scanning in documents for the manager, helping with commissions, pulling reports daily, price adjustments.
The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I am a big part of the team. I love to help others and complete deadlines in a timely manner. Multi tasking is not hard for me, but instead, keeps me going. I love seeing our team be successful!
Computer Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Highlands Ranch, CO – September 19, 2016
Service Desk IT Department was a really good place to get in and gain experience. Mostly really great people working there. If it weren't for a couple of bozos coming in there and focusing only on their personal gains and hurting everyone else in the process for the long-term, it would have still been a great place to work. Other than them ruining it, it was very fair compensation, a lot of promotions, recognition for hard work, and good team building activities. It was definitely hard work but you were rewarded. Also a really nice Holiday party and lunches out on occasion.
Lunches, Holiday party, team building events, Recognition for hard work, they care about you as a person and do not micromanage you
They hired some turds that caused a lot of turnover, they have let a couple of greedy knuckleheads ruin the IT department for everyone else, other departments in IT not held accountable for doing their jobs
Consierge (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – November 25, 2016
Live working here. Management is awsome. The only downfall is if you work part time you get no benefits. Pay is ok.....should be more due to the cost of living etc. the turnover rate would not be so huge if they paid better

Marketing Associate (Current Employee) – DC/Maryland/Va – February 28, 2016
This company only promote who they like. It's sad that they don't recognize hard working and dedicated employees. The pay sucks and management is horrible. If you're Black or Hispanic you will not be promoted.
Maintenance (Current Employee) – Maryland – September 2, 2015
To put in nicely the Baltimore region needs some work. The benefits are attractive but most of the PMs don't know what they're doing and they brown nose to the District Manager. The maintence dept. are treated like slaves , that's why the pay is above average. They do everything in house instead of contractors who actually specialize in certain areas. High turnover.

Area Recruiter (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – January 31, 2014
For the past almost three years I have been a corporate employee working in the field. UDR is a great company to work. If you are looking for a corporation that has high expectations for there employees and rewards those that get it done! I highly recommend UDR. Training and development is part of your daily agenda. Since coming to work here I have grown both personally and professionally. Genuinely nice people from the top down.
Worst company to work for. Worked for almost 2yrs was let go within 2 months of new supervisor. Management was a big joke incompetent comes to mine. Pay was horrible was told should not be in it for money..really? I could go on and tell you things you would not believe but if you ever worked for this company I'm sure you no what I'm talking about. I take back its not the company it's the the people who run the property's on sight, to much power and why not corporate never looks into any going ons Any rate I left with my head held real high. KARMA!

Service Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco – May 9, 2013
Good co-workers, good hands on experience. Regional, Area management are very bad people. They do not care about you or your co-workers. Meetings remind you Amway conventions. You can work as long as you can take it abuse from upper management. Company will sacrifice well been of the employees to save money. They will forcing you to take pay cuts. They mentality, take it or bye- bye. Regular workers are taking abuse for stupid ideas from upper management. If you came up with good idea, do not share, later on the same idea will came up from Upper Management. If you like stay there for a year and then start look for better job. If you live on site. Your rent more then your paycheak.
