    My experience was great!

    Senior Associate (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsThese guys are the best. So organized and professional with worldwide connections in every city.

    ConsYou are essentially a business within a business, so sometimes there is not much training but on the other side there is so much potential

    Advice to Senior ManagementEverything was great!

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

    Great place at first, then went down hill

    Associate (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsVery professional, growth opportunities for the "Favorite" people (non brokers), some fun times, SOME nice people

    ConsPay was less than average for what I did. Many,many perks before the recession (pre 2008), Management IMO wasn't on the same page with HQ or the other way around. Did get my identity stolen(2003) and still have to deal with that(2014) from HR records stolen. There are many who make a lot of money that showed it, flaunted it and wanted you to know how cool they really are. Many college grads that think they are all it.
    Admins aka secretaries seemed to be always treated like the bottom of the barrel. Always felt sorry for them.
    IMO, you have to watch yourself, as I seen many get stabbed in the back.
    Would I recommend working there, yes maybe if your in the brokerage as I have no clue in that area but doing anything in the support area such as administrative or IT, no run and run quickly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet over your self

    I Had a Temporary Assignment Here

    Tenant Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsHighly professional with lots of comaraderie amongst the staff. I could tell that everyone there worked really hard and that the clients were the number one priority. Lots of growth potential

    ConsI really didn't find any downside to my brief employment there. I only wish they had more available job opportunities.

    Good Company, Good Benefits, Management looks out for their employees

    Financial Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsCompany Values, Decent Benefits, Training. Management tries to listen to your concerns but sometimes there isn't much they can do about it.

    ConsDifficult to move from one position to another, level of satisfaction may depend on where you are situated, if you work at the property management level. Sometimes feels as if they have too many levels of management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove some of the benefits structure to be more in line with leading real estate firms in industry.

    Great career path, good entry level job with quick promotions if you show you are interested in the industry.

    Assistant Property Manager (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsManagers care about your happiness and career path. There is a severe lack of young professionals in the industry in general so management is eager to get young professionals in the door and promote them quickly.

    ConsOn site management offices segregated from corporate, company is severely lacking in the IT department and support.
