    ProsGood benefits, great annual holiday party.

    ConsThis was a great company in its infancy but has grown into one where nepotism, office politics, and bureaucracy are the norm. The corporate culture has changed, resulting in an atmosphere of harrassment and bullying. Long hours are expected with little regard for work-life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompetition and political in-fighting amoung upper management executives have resulted in inconsistent policies and procedures, ever-changing priorities, negativism, and favoritism. The team-building events are great and a lot of fun, but do not translate into the every-day work arena.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Property Manager (owner-manager) for bio-pharmaceutical lab/office buildings

    Property Manager (Former Employee) Cambridge, MA

    ProsCreative team atmosphere and culture. Support for modern technology and work tools.

    ConsNature of the lab/office market and reporting to Wall Street creates intense pressure for unrealistic levels of operational efficiency and reporting precision, resulting in vast work/life imbalance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Average but will never be good place to work due to narrow job focus and bad culture that leads to high turnover

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsLarge office space, nice benefits, pay for cost of living, company succeeds despite itself due to nature of REITs, current capital markets and niche in real estate industry

    ConsLong hours, average to high turnover for industry, narrow job focus due to size of company and bureaucracy, strong underlying politics due to passive/aggressive culture starting from the top, lack of career upside as evidenced by internal surveys (management will tell you they are making progress but they continue to hire externally for higher positions as they grow)

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest to job seekers about the lack of career upside if you are going to eventually hire someone above them externally and get rid of bad managers that mislead about employee development aspect of experience

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
