    Company and management places high value of growing and developing its employees so they have a successful career path.

    Pros

    They have provided our team with a level of support that's simply unheard of from all but the elite few in the CRE brokerage arena. They are continuing to push forward to improve every aspect of the way each individual broker does business, thru technology, marketing and personal support

    Cons

    Very little, but it is a relatively young company, integrating two very different businesses while continuing to grow. There are a few growing pains, but nothing that ever affects anyone's individual bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing, and continue to push everyone on both sides because there is greatness in this group.

    Pros

    Berkadia has a list of stated values highlighting things like integrity, long-term planning, and valuing it's people. The devops department adds on a push for professional development and doing things right. It's one of the few places that has shown me these values first hand instead of just telling me what they are and ignoring them in practice.

    Cons

    The physical location is not great. Confusing to get to for interviewees and the property management just does not care. I know it's being worked on, but this is a major issue currently.

    Advice to Management

    Break the lease and move on. The property management doesn't care and there should be ample evidence of such to break out and not have to pay a penalty.

    Pros

    If you want an environment where people love their work, their colleagues, and their customers then Berkadia is for you. Senior management is top-notch. Majority of key business decisions are driven from the top with middle management brought in along the journey. There is a continued emphasis on transparency and people are empowered to get the job done the best way they see fit. Quite easily this is the best job of my tenured and storied career.

    Cons

    We are a growing organization. We've doubled IT in size since I joined less than a year ago. Definitely growing pains but our leaders are committed to improving the environment for our people.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower and enable your people!

    Pros

    Great people and great resources.

    Cons

    We used to have the best database in the business, but the new CRM they've implemented over the past year or so has been a disaster. So painful to use and not user friendly. No one likes it, but they keep pushing it forward. Hoping for a change here.

    Advice to Management

    Please bring back our original database!

    I have been working at Berkadia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on the team and manager, work life balance can be great. Coaching is always available when needed and coworkers are friendly and care about you, not just your work.

    Cons

    Training is limited, that is to say on the job training is mostly done peer to peer and on the fly. There really isn't a formal training setup for any one job specifically.

    Upward mobility is limited, many levels of bosses above you in an entry level.

    Advice to Management

    When providing feedback, practice what you preach and try to give direct feedback to your employees. Don't have other people do it for you and try not to dwell on the insignificant things that really don't affect the job.

    Pros

    On a small team, so things feel more lax.

    Cons

    Super corporate--bureaucratic red tape, B.S. conferences, B.S. initiatives. Very old school culture.
