    I worked at Inland Real Estate Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You have an opportunity to gain valuable experience. The managers are great, willing to let you take the initiative, and they provide the needed feedback.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to move around. Employees tend to move on for better compensation and promotional opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company, however employees want to be rewarded by being fairly compensated and an increase in PTO would also be appreciated.

    I worked at Inland Real Estate Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A company that will give you a lot of experience with a variety in your work for the future. You get to experience what other departments do because of the interaction with them daily.

    Cons

    Company is very outdated and still lives in the past. The pay should be higher for the volume of work that you are given. Company doesn't stand behind you when you are trying to get a higher education and does not promote from within for people with years of experience in that field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should learn to stand behind the employees in their department when situations arise with other employees instead of putting them down and making them feel worthless. Stop hiring outside friends to other employees so that other the ones that are currently working there have a chance to prove themselves and get the respect they deserve and get promoted.

    I have been working at Inland Real Estate Group

    Pros

    They offer free coffee & tea.

    Cons

    Incredibly high turnover & there's a reason why... Ineffective, micro-managers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the reasons behind your high turnover rate. You pride yourselves on not having to lay people off, but that's because you can't keep people there... You drive them nuts & stress them out to the point where they leave!

    Pros

    Benefits are getting better for work/life balance

    Cons

    If you work hard your supervisor might notice, upper management does not. They will hire outsiders before offering current employees opportunities. It happens frequently even to employees with outstanding annual reviews. They will pr0mote someone who has been with the company for 10-20 years, no degree or experience to upper level management just because

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees complete degree programs and certificates in areas they have interest in. Try to match new projects to the interest of that individual not just company needs. Old school management does not work in this century.

    Pros

    The People. Excellent C level industry knowledge. Work/Life balance. Employer offerings are on the rise.

    Cons

    None really unless you are an ill performer. Company has a tendancy to hang onto C, D, and F employees too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain your recent flexibility with employment culture and continue to enhance the benefits and perks. Recent upgrades have been excellent.
