    I worked at Robert Charles Lesser & Co. full-time (more than 3 years)


    RCLCO provides excellent growth opportunities, especially for people looking to start their career in real estate. As an Associate, I was exposed to a wide variety of land uses, project types, and clients. Working closely with senior management, (many with decades of experience), provides a learning experience that is uncommon for most entry-level positions in the industry. Compensation markedly improves as you progress to project management duties, and with that, more responsibility and autonomy.

    Promotion track is largely self-directed: if you show that you can do the work effectively, and think on your feet, promotions will come quickly. This is not a firm where "blending in" leads to success.

    If consulting is your passion, then RCLCO is a great long-term fit. If it is not your passion, the experience can easily be parlayed to a position with a variety of other real estate companies. The firm has a solid reputation in the industry, and will open doors for you going forward should you decide to move on.


    -Work-life balance is challenging at times, especially when firm-wide work flow increases
    -Constant struggle between hitting your billable hours targets and being creative can lead to long-term challenges
    -Cross-office collaboration is also quite difficult, although this is probably an issue for all companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Don't let the review cycle be the sole determinant of promotions, particularly for stand-out Associates
    -Team members seeking other opportunities with great companies reflects positively on the firm. There is no need to maintain secrecy about the subject
    -Clarify how billable hours are tied to compensation

    Positive Outlook

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Robert Charles Lesser & Co..

    Interview Details

    First was a resume drop with a cover letter. If you made it past the initial screening then there was an online problem solving test with a request for your transcript and a writing sample. Then the next phase was a 30 minute phone interview with a consultant. They sneak in a technical question in the phone interview.
