I worked at Grubb & Ellis full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

they trusted you to do your job with minimal supervision. Treated you as a professional, and although they couldn't afford to acknowledge you monetarily , management was fair and attentive - and appreciative of professional work. You were respected and treated as a human being. Cared about personal life and family. Many more pros than cons, just the state of the economy was really what happened here, not the fault of the company.

Cons

We were let go as a team, its possible that if there were better intervention, we could've survived. better communication as a team would've helped, we might still be there... well, maybe. the economy had a lot to do with the dissolution. The way we were let go could've been handled better. I had 28 years and was given only 2 weeks to settle out with customers, try to clean out almost 30 years of shop material. it really couldn't have hurt to give more time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get together with your team and ask what you think would help , what customers want, etc, Listen to those on the lower ranks, those are the ones really doing the work.

    Pros

    I thought of grubb & ellis as a company and people, that they treated everyone the way that they would want to be treated. no one was treated greater or better.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything, but getting laid-off! i do understand that was not there fault. lack of needs for my job.

    treat everyone the same.some day you might not be where you are now and have to start all over again.
