    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 ManagementAdvice

    Make 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

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

    Pros

    Stable Company. Great Benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

    Improve company culture by eliminating employees who create this negative culture

  3.

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

    Pros

    Salary 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.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Hard 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the happiness of your employees. Improve Human capital

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not opportunities for women to make it up the ladder, and they overwork you way too much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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