Wonderful people to work; however, a very strong "good-old-boy" approach to leadership

Pros

The benefits are excellent, the salary a little bit higher than competitive. For those who like hard work and challenge, it's there. Highwoods is a great "people place" with some of the best in the business on staff.

Cons

Question whether Highwoods' future is as rosy and bright as Management would convey. Massive layoffs (with a large percentage of older employees with tenure benefits) strongly suggest that this company may be in trouble. Be aware that there is risk involved with hitching your star to this company -- not all things are truly the way they are told..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honest open communication from managment will result in honest, open, and loyal support from the staff level. Time to crawl out of the 1900s.

    I have been working at Highwoods Properties full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great support system. If you have a question, almost any other accountant can answer it for you and they encourage that you ask questions. Pay is good for the work, can easily complete all work within a 40 hour work week. Every one is nice.

    Cons

    If you've been doing general accounting work and want something more challenging then there isn't a lot of that directly accessible. You can ask for more complex stuff and they are happy to consider it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think for any company it would be helpful for all employees to be able to see the job duties of the next possible promotion for that employee's position along with the base salary. I think this would help motivate people more to stay with a company and understand what is needed for the next step up.
