Feels like home

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at SL Green Realty full-time

Pros- Very professional yet warm coworkers
- Great compensation
- Great Benefits
- High Expectations for achievement
- They still have summer fridays (unlike many other companies)

Cons- I guess it depends on what department you work in. My boss is not a clock watcher and encourages people to go home if there's no urgent business. I'm not sure that every boss is like that

Advice to Senior ManagementMake more of an effort to build name recognition within the industry. Given the culture and compensation there's no reason why this shouldn't be a more popular destination for the best employees

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Stressful

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at SL Green Realty full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStable Company. Great Benefits and perks.

ConsVery negative company culture. Harassment occurs often in this company, and there is no where to turn for help. Human Resources have no say nor any desire to help.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove company culture by eliminating employees who create this negative culture

Decent salary but, will cost you. . .

Property Management (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at SL Green Realty full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSalary and benefits are above market but, they have to do that to keep you. Many corporate outings, employees band together to maintain sanity given the work environment.

ConsNo work life balance, you are expected to constantly be on-call
Ridiculously long hours working at HQ
Department head has a knack for making the smallest task into a huge project which wastes the time and effort of his staff
Promotions and increases are not merit based - favoritism/nepotism runs rampant

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a hard look at some of the Senior Managers hiring and treatment of staff. There is a lot of room for improvement which would help morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Successful company

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at SL Green Realty full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStrong and stable company, Benefits are great. Company has been successful for some time now which probably won't change

ConsHard to balance work and life. Some departments lack proper leadership. Uncomfortable environment. This creates a stressful environment because most employees seem fearful of loosing their position entirely or being demoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on the happiness of your employees. Improve Human capital

They try but come out short

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at SL Green Realty

ProsThe salaries are competitive, they try to maintain a good corporate culture, many company outings.

ConsNot opportunities for women to make it up the ladder, and they overwork you way too much

Advice to Senior ManagementThe CEO is a great leader, but many of the managers below him need to work on creating better work life balance for employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
