    I worked at BioMed Realty full-time

    Pros

    Incredible benefits, which most other companies couldn't compete with, but the base salary was low for the amount of work. Overall, friendly people and casual environment.

    Cons

    Most departments didn't have much of a work/life balance and not all departments were the same as far as corporate culture. Management wouldn't discuss pay range for the position, which made it hard to know how far you could go within your current job.

    Advice to Management

    Have transparency - make it clear of where you stand for your role and how to work your way up in the company. Use the semi-annual self review to listen to your employees to make constructive changes.
