    I worked at Related Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are someone who seeks out career advancement and opportunities, Related is the perfect place for you. The office is run like a small entrepreneurial shop while providing the benefits of a large and stable institution. The culture and environment allows you to take on additional responsibility quickly. There is no doubt that Related is a serious company where you work hard - but you are rewarded for that work with career growth, compensation, and upward mobility. In my 3 years at the corporate office, I never once felt like I was competing against anyone internally for the next step or opportunity. The door was open for anyone willing to work for it. It is a fast paced environment but you can sit down with almost anyone for advice or guidance.

    The company is clearly committed to strengthening the business support units. During my time they have built out new teams for numerous office functions that are essential to the growth of the company. Leadership realized they needed to improve multiple areas, so they made strategic hires of external candidates and provided them with the resources to build out highly functioning/improved teams. Examples of this are HR, Accounting, Risk, Procurement and Financial Planning. In my opinion - that shows a serious commitment from the company to become best in class at multiple areas.

    The commitment to better the company is ever-present. Leadership respects the subject matter experts across the board. If you are prepared and can provide substance to new ideas they will support you.

    Personally, Related has been one of the best decisions I have made in my professional life. I have been pushed constantly and I really feel that I have expedited my career. The exposure to senior staff and leaders was unparalleled for any other company of this size. I would recommend Related to anyone who is dedicated and serious about their career. The company is truly best in class.

    Cons

    The company is constantly growing, and the leadership does not accept complacency. Every group has its own unique style and feel.

    When pursuing opportunities at Related, it is important that you find a team where your working style matches up with those of the group leaders. Some candidates are enamored with all the amazing projects and things the company does they forget to judge the opportunity itself, and rather are just looking for a way in the door. Because the teams are so small, this is the absolute worst thing a prospective employee can do. Hiring managers invest time and sweat equity into you when they are making a hire. If you are not prepared to return the investment within that specific group or team - take a step back and reconsider that particular position. Make sure you are joining a group and team that you actually want to be apart of. The only employees I saw who had a tough time - were those who just wanted to work at Related, rather then working for that particular team and position in which they were hired.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing. The strength of the company is truly in the leadership and people who support them. Related really does not say No to anything, if they think it can add value to the company or business.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Related Company.

    Interview

    The most eye opening and appalling interview of my career thus far. This was a few years ago and I only wish I'd written this review sooner. I was applying for an EA position to one of the most high-level people at this company. I am female. I was asked how long I would ideally like to be in the position which is an unusual question. I was then told "because the EA likely won't be in the role for more than a year when XXX decides he wants to get a "SHINEY NEW TOY". I would encourage anyone to stand up and not tolerate these harmful words in an interview, EVER. Get up and walk out. Women are not toys.
