Pros

Generally, a positive corporate culture - there are a lot of good people that work there. Excellent benefit package.

Cons

Many of the departments suffer from a top heavy organizational structure, with a staggering number of vice presidents in place shoveling out projects to the property level - most of which have little, if any, apparent relevance other than justifying the existence of their positions. Limited advancement potential for individuals in non revenue generating operational positions, as those departments tend to have a much leaner organizational structure - not to mention a constant battle to justify one's own existence through countless reports and metrics since you're not bringing in money. Often the company as a whole feels like it is managed directly out of whichever management theory book is in vogue at the moment - far too much emphasis on drilling the slogan of the moment into the collective minds of the employees versus genuinely putting into practice. Becomes Dilbert-esque after a while.

Advice to Management

Thin the ranks of the meaningless VPs and AVPs.

    Pros

    Good Benefits - health, dental, decent compensation. Great Location in Santa Monica - lots of shopping & great restaurants - places to hang out with co-workers.

    Cons

    Least creative, most boring job ever. Micro-managing supervisors who will hassle you over ever unimportant details. Also, an old boys club of Texas real estate buddies, with no real management or technical skills.

    Advice to Management

    Be more creative, in your investments, in the types of people you hire - your feeding all your resources into a dying market.
