I worked at Boston Properties

Pros

Day to day contacts within company are very nice and professional. Smaller managers are reasonable but can be very different between portfolios. Great amount of time off as well as summer hours. Great place to start out in the property management field.

Cons

Red tape is everywhere. Much more focus on policies and procedures than going out and improving assets and retaining tenants. Very clear that it is WHO you know and not WHAT you know that will get you noticed in such a big company. If you don't toot your own horn once in awhile then no one else will. Majority of the employees have the mindset of using the company to get ahead in the field but do not plan on staying with the company for the long haul.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to the great talent that you already have working for you. Give props where props are due. Maybe internal audit should start looking at the managers involved with hiring and I'm not talking about HR.

    I have been working at Boston Properties full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great company with great benefits. I have worked for this company for a number of years and really appreciate a company that values it's employees.

    Cons

    I don't have too many cons. Most of their property in the NJ market is in Princeton, which makes for a tough commute if you don't live in the area.
