    Pros

    Since it's a fairly new company culture is more dynamic and on the friendly side. I can only speak of the corporate office in Agoura Hills, but people here are definitely very easy to get along with. The recent incoming hires in the last year or so have been solid and have made and will continue to make a positive impact. It seems like a lot of the existing complaints have been from employees who have since turned; probably because the Company simply outgrew them and they weren't able to handle the complexities and requirements of a public company. This is not your typical mom&pop real estate shop; there's just so much activity going on. Company has made some strides through the last two years and is poised for an interesting outlook once the portfolio continues to stabilize.

    Cons

    Not as much structure. Processes change without any notice or training. Firedrills. Company still has room to tighten up as far as policies and operations goes. Typical issues with a Company with this type of growth.

    Advice to Management

    Provide equity to key employees to keep them vested in the Company greater than 1 year. Provide more non-standard perks to existing employees, you'd be surprised how far your dollar can go when it comes to employee happiness. Employee procurement and consultants are always more costly than employee retention.

  2. Very fun and nothing else.

    Pros

    Co workers were very friendly and a good place for recent grads.

    Cons

    The work was very simple. Never did I feel like I was being challenged. The pay was decent for me since I was a recent college grad. Felt more like a job and less like a career.

    Advice to Management

    Have more structure. The whole operation felt completely disorganized.

    Cons

    There should be a website where people's names can be known. They should not be allowed to get away with things like this. Especially HR. They are in bed with so many people no wonder they don't help the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the company , there is a way to name all of you that are doing wrong by people. It's taking some time but it will happen! Trust us!

    Pros

    The culture is very friendly at the Agoura headquarters. Happy hours are organized every month or so, which has been a great way to meet people and socialize. There are always a handful of cubes decorated with balloons and streamers for birthdays and the company organizes things like potlucks and halloween costume contests, so even though it's fast-paced and deadline driven, it still feels like a casual, fun atmosphere. I genuinely like everyone in my department and although the work is demanding and hours can be somewhat intense during busy periods, my bosses are very approachable when I need guidance and everyone in my department has a helpful, positive attitude. Pay and benefits are pretty good. PTO is 3 weeks, which is nice since most companies start with 2 weeks, and you go up to 4 weeks after 3 years w/ the company.

    Cons

    Processes aren't fully in place yet as it's still in start-up mode, so it often feels disorganized. This isn't the right place for someone looking for an easy clock-in, clock-out, 40 hr week job. It's very fast-paced and some overtime is definitely required during busy cycles.

    Advice to Management

    Management should seriously consider adding an employee stock purchase plan, which is a common benefit in public companies. The 401(k) match is good, but there is a six month delay before new employees can start contributing to their 401(k) plan, which is annoying. I think retention would increase if some changes were made in these areas.

  7. Extremely disappointing, very corrupt.
