I worked at Boston Properties

Pros

Well known in real estate industry, exposure to many departments

Cons

Do not promote from within, no opportunity for advancement, annual review process is very time consuming to only have the same result of a very small raise and no title change, office management treats employees like children.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are losing great employees left and right because they feel under appreciated.

    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.
