    Pros

    The people: Knowledgeable, diverse (discplines ranging from Construction to Accounting all under one roof) - fun to be around. Fully stocked kitchen. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    None to speak of. The office isn't in true Downtown SF, so you have to walk up a hill from BART. Maybe that's a bonus though. They're remodeling the office to include a gym, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Share/articulate strategic developments to lower staff.

    I worked at Carmel Partners full-time

    Pros

    The company develops impressive communities in large markets. There are also many strong employees in key areas, but their contributions are often marred and go unrecognized due to poor management structure and a dog-eat-dog culture.

    Cons

    Carmel's structure changes every year. Each fund usually cancels past efforts in order to concentrate on initiatives that are unthoroughly planned, poorly communicated and usually a troublesome idea. Carmel was once a company with a strong Residential Management Department, but after lacking experienced leadership, this once-great department is being outsourced, causing further turmoil in what was previously a great company. This all boils down to what is felt as shaky foundation for a company that was once a great place to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Promote your teams, work with others and concentrate on proving more than your own worth.

    Pros

    Carmel Partners investment professionals are dedicated, very hard working and thoughtful.

    Cons

    Carmel has experienced explosive growth in the past 10 years. It can be difficult to manage that growth, but Carmel's executives have done a good job in striking the right balance over the long haul.
