We Live with Gusto! Aimco team members give 100% each day – to residents and teammates – while having fun, too! The Aimco culture promotes team engagement, champions professional growth, applauds innovation and creates a sense of family – all reasons that make Aimco a Great Place to Work.
INVESTING IN TEAM MEMBERS
Aimco believes the most valuable investment is in our team. To help grow careers, Aimco invests in team member training and professional development, allocating substantial resources to job-specific and leadership trainings each year. When opportunities for promotions and job growth become available, Aimco considers its team first. More than two-thirds of all open management positions were filled from within Aimco in 2016. When jobs opened at the Vice President level or above, Aimco looked to its strong bench, filling 86% of those available positions with internal talent.
At Aimco, family matters. Aimco is a strong proponent of a healthy work-life balance: it is important for team members to feel fulfilled in their jobs while also making time to address family priorities. Team members can exercise flexibility in their work schedules to take care of an ailing family member or attend a child’s school activity. When team members are faced with an emergency or life-changing situation, Aimco Cares 4U extends a compassionate hand by offering short-term financial assistance.
In 2016 Aimco Cares 4U gave more than $34,000 to team members who experienced hard times.

Aimco takes pride in recognizing the achievements of team members. Community managers, service managers, leasing consultants, and service technicians who receive perfect 5-star ratings every day for a month are rewarded with 5,000 “Starbux” to purchase gifts of their choosing.
