    Pros

    Douglas Emmett has a long-standing culture of developing and supporting its employees. We have many employees who have started out at entry level positions and are now in leadership positions. We also have a lot of employees who have worked for the company for over 15 years. That alone speaks volumes of what kind of company we have. This company values longevity and invests in competent and hard working employees. They offer stability and plenty of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    This company has grown so fast that it is hard to keep track of new employees.
