    I worked at Robert Charles Lesser & Co. full-time (More than a year)


    As a hire straight out of college, I was exposed to a large variety of product types across multiple geographies (even got a site visit to Latin America!). I was very pleasantly surprised with the amount of responsibility I was given and the high profile of the projects I worked on. Projects I worked on often ended up in the LA Times; RCLCO is definitely the go-to firm for big projects in LA and employees reap the benefit of that status. RCLCO is a great place to learn about real estate. If you are hard working and motivated, you will be given a lot of responsibility very quickly. Opportunities for advancement are great; if you stick around for a few years and perform well, you can quickly make it to a management position. The culture in the LA office was awesome, my coworkers became great friends and working with people I liked so much made long nights much more bearable. If you are interested in real estate, this is a great first job. If you are interested in real estate and want to be in consulting, there is no better place to be. Working at RCLCO was an amazing experience, and I highly recommend it to fresh graduates.


    Consulting isn't a long-term thing for everyone, so there is a lot of turnover. However, most people who choose to leave do so not because they are unhappy at RCLCO, but because they find opportunities elsewhere that better fit their long-term goals. I suspect this is just the nature of consulting. Hours can get long, especially when multiple deadlines fall within a few days of each other. It is really important to be realistic with your projections, and be willing to speak up and say no to projects when you don't have time. The focus on billable hours can make you feel like you're working for nothing when a project is already already budget.

    The process began with a screening test, and then a phone interview with an associate and an in-person interview with VPs and MDs. Good communication with HR. Strong emphasis on culture
