    I worked at Douglas Emmett full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good for new graduates Pay ok for people with some experience

    Cons

    Low pay. Expensive insurance. No opportunities to grow. Toxic environment... People LOVE to gossip. Incompetent lower level managers, keep all the complaints to themselves. Different groups are secretly competing against and not working together.

    Advice to Management

    show your appreciation to the good employees (not with a slice of brithday cake every month)

    I have been working at Douglas Emmett full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice properties, some good people, and well...covered parking...

    Cons

    This place could be a great place to work. They have great properties, they are located in the heart of Santa Monica. they have in-house management, leasing and construction which should create synergy; however, I have yet to work for a less functional company. Creativity is discouraged. Completely unrewarding work environment.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees like they are "lucky to have a job," you will be left with people who are lucky to have a job.
