    I have been working at Washington Real Estate full-time

    Pros

    Washington REIT provides a fast paced work environment for motivated individuals who are passionate and excited about their work. I’ve found the leadership to be inspiring and I would consider the company to have a collaborative open door policy. As the oldest publicly traded REIT in the country, the firm had a reputation for taking on that persona - until recently. That being said, I firmly believe that both the new CEO and new COO have done an excellent job at reversing the firm’s reputation in the industry and delivering bottom line results to investors that are attributable to the firm’s strategic direction and growth.

    Cons

    None – it remains to be seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to bring in strong new talent that will contribute to the firm’s future vision.

    Pros

    None really. Got paid on time and had a fair amount of vacation Very old boy like.

    Cons

    The last more than ten people let go have been over 50. Ceo is unapproachable. HR should be one director not two. Benefits good but health insurance ridiculously expensive. Stuffy atmosphere unlike when the former ceo was their. People scared about more layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like someone said above, management should come clean and stop screwing with people's futures. Tell them now what you are doing and stop the games. You will find that people appreciate it when they are told the truth. Just stop it.
