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 never regret anything in life typically but leaving this company was and still is the ONLY thing I do regret. Morale within the company in general was that of support, helpfulness and understanding. If you needed anything they were there for you and you were not uncomfortable asking for it. It was truly a team effort from the Upper Management to the Property Staff. Their training cannot be beat as they lift up their employees both by the continued training as well as the recognition when job done well. All were accepted as long as you worked hard, did you job well and treated each other and the residents well. I have referred several people there that I come across in life and they too have loved the company as much as I did. If I had the chance I would certainly go back. If I was to say anything negative you do have to have the ability to change location. This being a management company for many properties your place of work could change at any moment but that is this business in general.
Community Manager (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – January 10, 2019
I literally have worked with some of the best people on the planet everywhere I went with this company. Because it is so big, you can travel anywhere and work in any department. Each region is different and it depends on you immediate supervisor, but I was lucky to have great ones.
3rd party/ fee managed- so you get shuffled around with sales

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 28, 2018
Love the company, although sometimes I do not agree with their choice of managers on site. Their vision is great as long as the managers follow that vision. But being such a huge company it is hard for them to make sure everyone is actually following the core values.
some properties bonus program
give you pto but never really able to use it without being guilted about it
Receivables Account Specialist (Former Employee) – Lynnwood, WA – December 15, 2018
I worked in the Receivables Department. Company values are not followed by management. Enjoyed my co-workers, enjoyed my job. A hostile work environment is created by the management--both my direct supervisor and their superiors. I was discriminated against and treated badly by all superiors when I attempted to bring the issues to their attention.
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – Prospect Heights, NY – December 12, 2018
I would not recommend working for Greystar Management. Overworked and underpaid while being spoken to as if you are some type of peasant. Company culture is so fake, if you decide to work for Greystar...MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS! Very cut throat environment and everyone is seriously all out for themselves.Very high turnover rate with an F rating with the BBB.
Managers quitting as I was starting. Upper management never available to answer critical questions. Systems failing the second week I started. Never received proper training for that particular community.
Sr. Community Manager (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 3, 2018
I love working for this company. I have wanted to work for Greystar for years now and I dont ever want to leave! Greystar's core values are impressive. The sense of team and family is overwhelming. There is so much room for growth and advancement as Greystar is constantly growing. They take pride in their name and it shows immensely!
Greystar is the best in continued education and promoting from within while supporting your advancement and achievements.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Culver City, CA – December 2, 2018
As Property Management can be different everyday. Some days are great and some are more trying. Overall Greystar co-workers have instilled a sense and ownership in Teamwork. Greystar believes every team member is equally important for the success of the community. From the porter and housekeepers to the leasing, maintenance and management. The levels of continued training I have benefitted from and appreciate knowing that I can learn something new everyday if I choose too. This helps with being promoted quickly if you educate yourself and make it known that you're interested in upper management. My upper management have always been supportive and there for me to help me grow. I will miss working with Greystar and hope to find a company that has these same standards and supportive employees that believe in what Teamwork is.
