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

Pros

Large 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

Cons

Long 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 Management

Be 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

    Pros

    Incredible benefits, which most other companies couldn't compete with, but the base salary was low for the amount of work. Overall, friendly people and casual environment.

    Cons

    Most departments didn't have much of a work/life balance and not all departments were the same as far as corporate culture. Management wouldn't discuss pay range for the position, which made it hard to know how far you could go within your current job.

    Advice to Management

    Have transparency - make it clear of where you stand for your role and how to work your way up in the company. Use the semi-annual self review to listen to your employees to make constructive changes.
