    Pros

    one of the things that stood out to me during my tenure at JBG is how down to earn upper management was. I truly felt valued as an employee. JBG invest a lot of time and resources into their employee therefore making you a better at your job. Not to mention the benefits are fantastic and salary competitive to other property management companies

    Cons

    None that i can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you doing!

    Pros

    Company is continually growing and management tries to create a culture where everyone feels part of something bigger. The corporate office has breakfast out daily, frequent lunches, learning events, family events, etc... A fun place to work.

    Cons

    Depending on what department you work in, you may run out of space to grow/advance.

    Pros

    Great company! Intelligent employees, great work-life balance, excellent benefits, interesting projects, free snacks and endless peanut butter.

    Cons

    Very political, often have to jump through very unnecessary hoops to get anything accomplished. Poor onboarding and training process.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to take a more coordinated approach and exhibit less indecision. It often times seems as if every team is on a different page.

    Pros

    JBG is an awesome company to work for. There is plenty of room for growth, they're benefits are great, and everyone is so welcoming and knowledgeable!!! They also offer a 20% discount if you chose to live at a JBG property which is decent.

    Cons

    First place I've worked with no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the rent discount a little!

    Pros

    Good benefits and vacation, however management gets frustrated when you take it because they have to support you while you are gone.

    Cons

    Support to the properties is minimal, you are expected to work with staff shortages for long periods of time, hiring process is very slow and does not benefit employees or residents.

    Advice to Management

    Support properties, ensure they are staffed correctly understanding what's best for the residents and employees, be accountable as well and lead by example.
