    Pros

    Big company with lots of money and growing business.

    Cons

    They are moving down the outsourcing rabbit hole at light speed. The first and only question is who can we outsource this to and will remove systems from the data centers. From the top of the company it has been dictated to get out IT. Helpdesk -outsourced. Applications - outsourced. Infrastructure - closing down data centers. Email - outsourced. Communications - outsourced. SSO-outsourced.

    What is left? Not much.

    You've been warned. You will be miss led from the beginning as I was and others that have seen the light and left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to say, this comes from the very top. It will be years before this cycle is busted for them. You think this will make you agile and reduce your IT responsibilities, clueless.

    The best global real estate company around

    I have been working at Prologis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been lucky enough to work at a number of offices and had enjoyed a working environment where the scale of the business is huge (USD 50 billion of assets) while the number of employees is limited (~1400). This allows each role to be fairly broad and allows for a fairly entreprenurial atmosphere. I find many of my colleagues to be bright and dedicated. For those interested in an international career in real estate, I believe that Prologis is easily the best platform around.

    Cons

    The downside of the smaller workforce is that as you proceed in your career, new opportunities to move up become fewer and farther between.

    Pros

    They pay pretty well. Average Benefits. Encourage telecommuting. Subsidized cafeteria and gym. Very focused on giving company paid time off to volunteer around the community.

    Cons

    Poor culture and leadership. Constant direction changes and lack of vision. Typically doing things 70% and stopping short.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You employ some really smart people. Listen to them.

    Pros

    Smart employees, good pay, global company with a strong executive team

    Cons

    Could be an extremely demanding work environment with long hours...most prevalent in the finance and acconting groups. Organization tends to be top-heavy with management...lots of VP's and several of them without any direct reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for performance model or some standardization of compensation reviews would be helpful. Some of the individuals in management roles are

    poor work-life balance, if not one of the 'golden ones', little opportunity for growth, archaic HR polices (no working from home, no part-time working unless on doctor's orders), compensation is at low end of average

    I worked at Prologis full-time

    Pros

    Good resume builder, intelligent management, global scale and perspective. If not for the merger and focus on G&A (due to an inability to grow the platform), this would still be a world class place to work.

    Cons

    Politics run the show from the very top to the very bottom. Even the upper tiers of management seem to be constantly trying to one up each other, throw subordinates under the bus, and undercut superiors... and this behavior filters down. Everyone is afraid for their jobs due to the comically named "Project Alignment" (read:rolling layoffs), so the entire corporate atmosphere is defensive, territorial, and stifling. It's a good place if you just keep your head down and accept the status quo, but if you're looking to advance your career, it will be a short term stop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting a failed IT department hold you hostage. Just shut the whole thing down and stop wasting TONS of valuable G&A dollars that could be utilized for paying employees that actually add value.

    The most disappointing thing about this company isn't so much what it is now, it's how great of a place it USED to be.
