    Senior Asset Manager

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Trimont Real Estate Advisors

    Pros

    Good work environment. Steady position for nine and a half years. Reasonable pay and bonus.

    Cons

    Overall, from my past experience with other companies I worked for over 30 years, it was a great place to work.

  2.  

    Good company...could be a great company

    I have been working at Trimont Real Estate Advisors full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The salaries are good but not great (former colleagues have received good-sized raises at new jobs) and the benefits are pretty good. The environment is family-friendly and most of the employees are nice folks. All in all, the culture is okay.

    Cons

    Trimont Real Estate Advisors is a good company but could be a great company with more proactive executive leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company succeeds in spite of the lack of direction or communication from its principals because the company is full of very smart real estate professionals. The company leadership seems unaware of, or doesn't care about, the deep talent it has on its bench and seems content to let mid and upper level employees seek better opportunities elsewhere rather than nurturing and harnessing that talent in-house to pursue or develop new opportunities that would benefit the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good culture, work life balance is attainable.
    Trimont allows for a relaxed atmosphere, where employees are allowed some discretion in their time commitment. The culture is respectful towards its employees and positively benevolent.

    Cons

    Below market salaries, uncertain future, few growth opportunities –Since the loss of the client Lehman Brothers, the firm has struggled to find comparably paying clients and is floundering with its identity. The firm originally focused on real estate complex finance, but now endeavors to do anything in the RE world from essentially property management to small balance collections. The firm is now focused defining its role in the commercial real estate space, but what that currently and succinctly is at the current time, I couldn’t say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nail down a business plan

    In order to retain top quality employees, you have to provide career growth opportunities and equal treatment of employees.
