Large Company with plenty of advancement opportunites.
Assistant Community Manager (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – January 12, 2017
My manager is a vessel for our regional manager and i find it hard to maximize productivity when RPM approval is needed for every issue. The company is well run overall but could use a revamp of some procedures.

I learned a lot from people who have been in this business for a long time and i was on a large property so it was very interesting learning how to work with many types of people. Weather they were angry or happy.
If you're ready for a mid-life crisis this job is for you!

Well let's start of with the good things about Greystar. - Great Benefits -Paid Holidays (so long as they don't force you to work them) -Nice healthy paychecks especially when you have commission.
Now for the Cons: -Corporate cares about one thing and that's money. You are disposable to this company.
- You will never have a life outside of your work. You will spend every hour of everyday of your life committed to Greystar and they will rarely show their appreciation. ( Side note: God help you if you are applying to maintenance because odds are you'll be in call 75% of your time and will be absolutely overwhelmed day in and day out.)
-They care more about their A and B grade properties. Should you find yourself in a C list or lower be prepared that no matter how hard you work. It's never enough.
Be prepared to have massive anxiety working for this company. You will wake up every morning dreading the day ahead. Yes, the pay is great; however the amount of stress you endure will not compensate for it.
Assistant Property Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 12, 2018
I have to work off the clock as an hourly employee to get everything done that is required. The owner of my current property under pays the staff and won't give us the financial resources for marketing or maintaining the property. Promises of promotions and pay raises are not put in writing and verbal promises are often forgotten about or denied within the company as a whole. Greystar is growing too fast and doesn't properly train employees and it is up to you to make friends with associates to get properly trained. I have personally trained half a dozen people on my own personal time off the clock because their immediate supervisors are "too busy".
I love Greystar and their core values. This company takes care of their employees needs and will help you grow in the process. They Continually strive for excellent in all aspects of the properties they manage.
Overall, a good company. Benefits were good. Everyone was micromanaged terribly by the regional. Typical day was dealing with resident complaints, leasing, reports and conference calls. The culture was very stressful and did not reflect the Greystar Pillars.
Manager (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – August 2, 2018
The company is so big that there is such a disconnect between corporate and onsite team. They make processes and procedures more complicated than they should be. There is minimal support from upper management and rarely any accountability. Accounting processes change with each accountant change so you are forever re-doing things you have already completed. I thought we were supposed to work together, but it felt like they were working against us at times.
Great benefits, advancement opportunities, travel
Too big, lack of communication, no accountability for upper management or accounting dept
Manager (Former Employee) – Raleigh-Durham, NC – July 30, 2018
Horrible company consumed with horrible people. The company used to be wonderful, but everything has changed. If you want to be harassed, have no outside life (unless your a popular manager or corporate team member) , and be told lies everyday then go for it. The only good thing is the benefits. Corporate team does whatever they want and are hypocrites to the little people who work so hard for them and when they don’t like you, you will be harassed until you can take no more.
Leasing Professional (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – July 23, 2018
The company is large so it has a lot of great resources for training, connecting with people in your region, and potential for career growth. However, bureaucracy and office politics come into play because of this. The environment can be stressful day-to-day, but there is a lot of money to be made if you're at a nice property.
