Poor Corporate Culture

Staff Accountant (Current Employee)
Santa Monica, CA

I have been working at Douglas Emmett full-time for more than a year

ProsVery nice properties, some good people, and well...covered parking...

ConsThis place could be a great place to work. They have great properties, they are located in the heart of Santa Monica. they have in-house management, leasing and construction which should create synergy; however, I have yet to work for a less functional company. Creativity is discouraged. Completely unrewarding work environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you treat your employees like they are "lucky to have a job," you will be left with people who are lucky to have a job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
