    I have been working at W. P. Carey full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, but it is not as good as used to.

    Cons

    Super micromanagement in the accounting dept, they keep track what time you come and leave, they make sure you work long hours, most managers have no clue about real estate accounting. You're on your own. Anything screwed up, you're screwed.

    I worked at W. P. Carey full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great for young people with no family and wants a firm for a short term for their résumé. Good benefits.

    Cons

    They think they own you. Blackberry. Email on a Saturday at 3 Am. Work till 11 pm. Expect to work holidays including day after thanksgiving/ additionally training is by consultants that want perm jobs. Computer system is very poor, although they are looking to upgrade within 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the perm employees train newcomers and not the temp. Also be honest about the constant long long hours. Get a new computer program faster. Perhaps your employees won't have to work to midnight. Excel on manual is unheard in this day in age!

    I worked at W. P. Carey full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, the best I have seen

    Cons

    Can't make up their mind on what they want
    long hours
    micro-managed out the ying yang
    almost like being in school...if you aren't in the "click" you are ignored
    no recognition
    management will get rid of people just for the "heck" of it ...with no real reason, even when their "Review" is Excellent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a chill pill and pay attention to what it going on
    learn from field
    Take training classes
