    Pros

    Decent benefit package; however, medical insurance payroll deduction very high.

    Cons

    No training in key areas. Company prefers to hire from outside than promoting from inside. Human Resources disconnected from reality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff members. Remove the lazy employees.

    I worked at Related Management part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of variety in going to different rental/condo properties throughout Manhattan each day and serving as administrative assistant; very good pay and competitive benefits package.

    Cons

    These people could CARE LESS about their employees - I've never experienced such lack of care for other human beings - they will not hesitate to throw an individual right under the bus in order to save the face of the company's incompetence. No one helps each other, rather, it's every person for themselves in this world!

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees' needs and RIGHTS. Listen.

    Pros

    Can not think of any

    Cons

    Everything! From "classes" they have you do which is a huge time sink. (And talking about there horrible reviews in those classes lol) to empty promises! They let so many go if they buy out anyone! And can't replace them which makes every property short staffed! And can't get very many to stay on due to there poor business practices!

    Advice to Management

    Rethink how your running your business! You already have a very bad reputation!!!!!

    I worked at Related Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large Company, Luxury Apartment Buildings. One of the premiere real estate companies in NYC. The company is growing at rapid speeds so one would imagine about the available opportunities.

    Cons

    Employee Satisfaction non-existent upper management not at all interested in how employees are treated. Diversity is also non-existent in Management which is unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to line team members, become more diverse in Management/Senior Management. Also, work on creating a more positive company culture. Also, part of your Leaders Performance goals should be to hire diversity candidates in Management DM's Execs etc...

    I worked at Related Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary and excellent benefits. They offer promotions very quickly (although usually people who have not amassed the experience necessary for said promotion).

    Cons

    Prides themselves on "Respect-based" management yet continually treated employees with extreme disrespect. Property was left in disarray, unsecured and had various health and safety hazards throughout, despite employee concerns. Lower-level management was scared to talk to upper-management about any issues for fear of getting berated or fired. Unethical. Related "brand" secured via any means necessary.

    Horrible NJ Regional Manager, Mis-Manages her portfolio and keeps the properties in bad shape to sabotage.

    Pros

    The benefits the company offer are fair I v'e had better and the online training modules are helpful and easy to follow.

    Cons

    Don't waste your time, you will be unemployed before your 6mth probationary period ends 10 Managers within four years, high turn over. New Jersey Properties are mis-managed and the Regional sets you up for failure to keep the focus off of her who is the real problem to the NJ sites. She rotates managers to make it seem like they cannot handle the job when she is the one who mis-managed her portfolio. The staff that's been there for years have politic their way through. O yeah if the VP does not like you, you can kiss your job good bye regardless of your education, experience and success.

    Advice to Management

    If the sites are not doing well and you have hired a qualified candidate with proven abilities to perform and there is a high turn over in managers you need to look at your Regional Manager and see what's really going on. There are a lot of behind the scene business going on your not aware of which set your properties up for failure.

    Pros

    -Good property management experience with 1st-Class properties. -Dedicated and competent site staff at all properties for the most part. -Company has a good name and image in the real estate business in general. -Benefits OK. -Many work processes are web-based or computerized and well-integrated into a common platform. -Top executives and company ownership are no-nonsense people to deal with. Great opportunity for exposure to this level of accountability.

    Cons

    -Increasingly unrealistic expectations of both management personnel and site staff. -Too much focus on policy and procedure vs. actually getting the job done. -Most of if not all of the upper management have no hands-on PM experience, and this detracts from their ability to understand employee roles,workdays and how to best supervise the site personnel as well as do things efficiently, cost-effectively or in a time-efficient manner. -Protectionism in the upper ranks makes everyone else dispensable.

    Advice to Management

    -Lots of dead wood that needs to go. Time in the company doesn't equate to management effectiveness. -No work/life quality, too much extra administrative work and procedural nonsense is foisted on the lower and middle ranks. Eliminate the extra paperwork and focus on getting the job done. -Back of house operations at many properties appear to be OK at first but closer inspection will reveal staggering deficiencies in physical plant upkeep, site staff supervision, policy adherence and enforcement as well as general building maintenance. Consistent and regular site visits and inspections will prevent this. -Leasing operations are not on pace with the market nor aggressive enough to capture targeted clients at many properties, resulting in significant unrecoverable vacancy losses. At the end of the day, people care about what they're paying out in rent, not the move-in gifts and promotions. -Property management is a people business, enough said. When you lose focus on or forget about the people element of it, you've become just another landlord in NYC.

    Competitive pay, work life balance is pretty fair, and Related also has great training modules to learn from and well as various other resources.

    I worked at Related Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work like balance seems to be fair in comparison to other real estate firms. - Good Company name to put your on your resume when looking for other alternatives.

    Cons

    - The compensation at the accountant/senior accountant level can be lower than the fair market price offered by the competitors. The senior management creates pretty bad vibe and its difficult to deal with. - The process of performamce reviews has not always been fair but skewed based on favoritism and politics. -You may find yourself being micro-managed depending on who is your supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Need to replace the entire old RMC management crew with new fresh ideas.
