    Former Employee - Real Estate Paralegal in Oak Brook, IL

    I worked at Inland Real Estate Group full-time for less than a 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 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

    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.

    I worked at Inland Real Estate Group full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
