Fun filled is how employees describe working at this firm that owns and operates 167 apartment complexes with nearly 59,000 units across the U.S. This is largely due to culture that encourages happy hours, baby showers and an annual conference that brings managers to headquarters in Houston. The company also takes care of employees’ families with fully furnished vacation suites, 20% discount on rent, and college scholarships.
