Look elsewhere if you dont enjoy a climate of fear
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Ashburn, VAJuly 4, 2019
exactly what the title says. you wont be appreciated and you wont feel like superiors have your back. You will be left to the wolves pretty regularly and when something beyond your control goes wrong good luck getting your supervisors to assist you. If you work there get ready to kiss butt to move up.

Overall Van Metre is a great company to work For. they have great benefits and are pretty fair for the most part. Corporate could improve their ways but onsite staff is great

Focused on work life balance but nothing else
Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VAFebruary 20, 2019
They are very focused on providing a work life balance that is generous for their employees but nothing else. The health care insurance isn't the best and they do not want anyone to be promoted or transferred out of the employee track that they've created. I was told that "Van Metre is not in the habit of transferring employees simply because it would make their life easier"

Great Culture & Constantly Making Better for Employees
Finance (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VAJanuary 9, 2019
Van Metre is a great place to work. So many employees get promoted multiple times and stay with the company long term. There are multiple divisions including homebuilding and investment properties so the company is very stable. Has been around since 1965 and has many awards including Best Employer, Most Philanthropic, Healthiest Employer and others. The pay is very competitive and the benefits are better than the average companies in this area. They close the offices the week between Christmas and New Year’s and you do not need to use your leave. The top level management really promote work life balance and Respect and Dignity, which is one of the company’s Core Values.
Pros
Pay, benefits, work life balance, coworkers, you can work while enjoying yourself and they make time for fun.
Cons
Really can’t think of any

Great culture
Accounting (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VAJanuary 2, 2019
I love the culture at Van Metre. The owners/management team really cares for the employees. They host so many team building and appreciation events that I find it difficult to find the time to attend them all (what a good problem to have!). The company is always striving to do things better which makes for a great environment where innovation and efficiencies are rewarded. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the pace, especially as things continue to change, but those busy times are offset by company vacations to places like Jamaica (with significant others!). The most enjoyable part of the job is being part of the improvements, as well as, the people.
Pros
Culture, work-life balance

Great Culture - Needed a little more help from upper management. Created an environment for you to feel ok speaking if you have concerns about the property.

Bigots
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VADecember 2, 2017
Fired all upper level females in the company in one fell swoop. Some had been furthering the company for 30 plus years. Then they promoted infighting and turmoil amongst those who remained instead of quality and teamwork.
Pros
nice benefits if you could stomach the company to enjoy them
Cons
Think of it and it happened here

Great Place to Work. The hours are reasonable and the compensation is great. My manager was very supportive and was easy to relate with. I would recommend VM as a place to work

Love it!
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Stone Ridge, VAOctober 12, 2015
The perks are great! Everyone is really nice and really understands you have a life outside of work. The company is very needy and has high standards, so if you can't take high pressure, this is not the company for you. If you can, it'll be a great experience!
