    I have been working at Vornado Realty full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are interested in the field of Property Management, this is an excellent company to work for. Lots of autonomy in field offices. Opportunities for growth and encouragement to become an RPM (I believe they will pay for this training). Fun corporate atmosphere. Annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Health care benefits changed 3 times in the course of 3 years. Satellite offices are small so you should be comfortable working independently.

    I worked at Vornado Realty full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Feels like family from the first day you start until you leave. Supportive. Family-oriented. Open arms to all cultures.

    Cons

    Systems are antiquated and inefficient, primarily built in-house without end-user logic. Causes a lot of overlap between departments, and no connection where there should be connection between departments. Massive amounts of manual redundancy. A lot of room for human error due to so many people having access to manual inputs. Very little opportunity for growth or promotion, but not that much less than the average company of this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your systems. The money you spend will be saved exponentially in the end.

    I worked at Vornado Realty as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Vornado is an okay place to work at. There is not much opportunity for interns, but if you are working here you could get far.

    Cons

    It could be really boring as intern, but hey it a great place to put on your resume. There are not much cons though

    Pros

    If you live in NJ hours are okay.

    Cons

    NO real bonus, limited increase in salary. Most everyone who works in a decent role got the job due to who they are married to or who is in their family. It is a very "Mad Men" type of workplace. Have seen coffee and lunch served by their "girls" , "secretaries" and "admins".

    I have been working at Vornado Realty full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nearly everyone knows what they're doing, and they take their work very seriously. High degree of professionalism and a willingness to guide help each other.

    Cons

    In the Paramus office, at least, it's a very "9-5" work culture. Divisions are very silo'd, with only managers communicating between them. Definitely an "office space-esque" mindset at times. Difficult to grow by moving between divisions, simply because there isn't enough contact between them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the New York and Paramus offices to work more closely together, and encourage middle management to get on the ground and work together with regular employees.

    I worked at Vornado Realty full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good communication from home office. Property Managers were always helpful, friendly and supportive. They did a great job of encouraging growth within the company and the industry. The pay for the position was good.

    Cons

    As a Property Administrator, the work can be a little mundane, and it is not usually very challenging. Sometimes, it is not always clear what the best choice of action is when there are conflicts between tenants and contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more training on how to deal with different situations.
