Pros

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

Cons

This 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 Management

If 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.

    Pros

    Some nice workers and reasonable pay, also a few nice perks. I think a lot of your experience there depends on whether you work at one of the properties or the corporate office.

    Cons

    It feels cold there at times, and they have become progressively distrusting of their employees in the corporate office, to the point where there are going to be cameras installed.

    Advice to Management

    D.E will always succeed, but eventually the quality and longevity of it's employees is going to go down unless it returns it's roots of it being like a family style company and less like working for the "man."

    Pros

    Managers are nice and have been very helpful. Company does not overwork you but they monitor every minute you are late.

    Cons

    Pay is way under market...way under market.
