    Pros

    First Potomac boasted a committed and hard working team. Everyone seemed to share a determination in reaching First Potomac's goals. Our hard work never went unrewarded or unnoticed and was reciprocated with fun team building events and department getaways.

    Cons

    First Potomac had several departments that functioned somewhat differently and had their own independent objectives. For instance, Leasing, Acquisitions, Construction, etc some times had somewhat conflicting end goals, and occasionally communication could break down amongst them. However, the company was always working to reconcile these differences and I did not see it as a deterrent for working their.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was at the bottom of the totem pole, yet I felt that there was ample opportunity for me to interact with upper management. Please keep up this tradition.

    Pros

    A generally relaxed and open work environment. Senior management is accessible (huge plus). Benefits are good and include numerous opportunities to strengthen colleague relationships outside the office. Started as a family company and tries to maintain some of that culture.

    Cons

    Company is still undergoing lots of changes from top to bottom so future is not as clear.
