    The open bullpen -style seating for the services professionals that encourages information sharing and learning is not fully supported by all.

    Pros

    I am given a broad level of responsibility to run my portfolio. Senior management is always available to provide advice, but they don't babysit or hover. It is truly a meritocracy. If you do weil, you will be recognized and compensated - if not, you'll be moved out. Management cares about employees - nice offices, great pay and benefits, numerous company functions, lunch for everyone once a week, annual performance feedback and goal setting, etc. As a result, there is very low turnover - perhaps one mid level manager or above every couple of years and the administrative staff rarely leave.

    Cons

    It is an intense working environment and not for everybody. Also, it is a very social environment, so if you are introverted by nature you could feel uncomfortable there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to grow the company to provide more opportunities for internal growth. Also, look at other product types to manage like multifamily and geographic regions to manage.

    Pros

    They pay decently and you'll get alot of experience dealing with diverse people outside of the company. Multiple property types managed, which creates broader knowledge base.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours - it was more important to be seen alot than actually be working. Management and employees all seem to be trying to "outmanage" each other by delegating responsibilities all over the place, not doing any actual work. Lots of employee turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement business casual dress. Communicate with employees more than at them - your turnover rate will decrease. Stop worrying about image so much and concentrate more on business activities.

    Pros

    Plenty of freedom to experiment and try out different ways of solving problems. Not too much micro-management. Friendly, supportive, and offers opportunities for long-term advancement.

    Cons

    Weak training program for new hires. There is not a lot of hand-holding. Not the most tech-savvy company or industry. Conservative environment with formal power hierarchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it clear what needs to happen in order to achieve a promotion. Don't waste people's time with management / company leader meetings. If they are not managers, then they do not need to be there.
