    Hard to get fairly recognized unless you're included the gossiping "in" crowd, like going to High School all over again.

    Pros

    Among Industry leaders, company has depth of talented individuals to utilize, good firm infrastructure, good exposure to real estate industry, office is in a great location

    Cons

    Positions within my department are very heterogeneous. The department has many different funds which leads to a lot of variation as far as work load expectations, responsibilities given, who you interact with, etc. which leads to a lot of unfairness with promotions and compensation. The bonus structure should be improved to more justly reward hard working employees instead of company performance vs. benchmarks that are totally out of most employee’s control. No salary increases given at year end 2008 into 2009 or into 2010 and very small increases (avg around 1%) for 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the bonus structure so people in Accounting are given just compensation for their hard work and not based on factors out of their control. Address the varying work demands within the different funds in the investor accounting department. Start giving realistic salary increases that at least match increases in cost of living.

    Pros

    Heitman is a great company to start or continue your real estate investment career. Good work/life balance, although at times you are asked to work late hours as expected with any investment company. Management cares about their employees and makes sure everyone is happy. There is the ability to move around to different departments once you gain experience.

    Cons

    Sometime the work can be repetitive. Smaller company so you are unable to move up unless some leaves or the company grows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees better direction on their career path
