I have been working at AEW Capital Management full-time (More than a year)
The one pro is most of the people. Most of the people are very nice, helpful, smart, basically what a company would look for. The top management which is called the executive committee are also great. They are what makes the company survive.
As I said in the pros most of the people are great. Some are not. They are mainly the middle management people. There are also people who I would consider very bad people. The one reviewer that said he is afraid of his boss I can understand as I am as well. As an analyst I feel as though I am not allowed to have an opinion because people with "experience" decide how things are done and no one can say anything else. This has constantly hurt returns with some poor and a few simply crazy decisions that I have seen. The company returns are not very good, but it does provide a good laugh when they present the returns at company meetings, believe they are good, and say it is because of you we were able to achieve this. Pay. The other reviews on here have already talked about this, but the pay is significantly below average. When I accepted the job I thought I would be getting around what the glassdoor salaries said boy was I wrong. I don't know where the glassdoor salaries come from, but not from anyone I know. I have been here two years and am looking for another job as are many people my level knowing there is better pay and a better environment out there. It is funny how they say people stay here there whole career when it seems like someone leaves every week. I have heard that AEW will try to blackball you if you leave, but they don't have as much sway in the industry as they believe.
Advice to Management
The executive committee is good at what they do, but they need to weed out some of the other management that is not performing. Pay employees a competitive wage. Also, listen to younger employees opinions about what should be done as they may surprise you with how much they know. Years of experience does not equal knowledge.
