    I have been working at Douglas Emmett full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've watched so many fellow employees work their way up the ladder. Douglas Emmett is loyal to its employees when those employees work hard and help meet customer service goals. I have had fairly consistent raises and a recent promotion. After 5 years I was offered "shares" of stock! I hope to retire at Douglas Emmett after a long ans successful career.

    Cons

    Sometimes training is a bit limited, but if you know how to network and are not shy, it's pretty easy to get assistance with questions.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make time for more thorough training.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Douglas Emmett (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    A bubbly corporate recruiter found me on linkedin and reached out to me. She made the entire process quick and simple, scheduled around my current job. Met with her first, and then two directors, and then off to my new soon to be supervisor. Entire process took under a week, from meet to sign.
