    I worked at Boston Properties full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I think the best reason to work here is the exposure to large scale projects and investments. The people are bright and the history of the company's leadership had been good.

    Cons

    There can be a little complacency driven by the tenure of senior employees and the relatively static nature of the business. Those seeking an entrepreneurial environment will find themselves frustrated by the rigid nature of a a large public real estate company

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and be more transparent about the cyclical nature of the business and it's potential impact on long term employment up front within the recruiting process

    Pros

    exciting projects and properties in and around the city. great office locations, good coworkers, decent atmosphere.

    Cons

    not very focused on good employees and keeping them except for certain areas. old school views that aren't helping the company tap into the current job seekers or keep the younger employees. low salary for lower level positions.

    Advice to Management

    grow your younger employees instead of letting them leave. pay them what they deserve based on their work and experience.

    Pros

    Good benefits and properties but that's about it. Premier locations but the salary lacks significantly

    Cons

    Impossible to move up. Positions are filled based on relationships of higher management and their friends. No recognition of work or basis for salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    It will continue to be a revolving door until you recognize your employees and their skills. Hiring unqualified people may make you look good with your friends but is making good employees leave

    I have been working at Boston Properties full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay and location.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't pay attention to your feedback. It's a million dollars company but they're still very cheap. Very unorganized. Still a very old fashion company doesn't really like changes when most of the employee here are younger.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas and actually implementing them.

    Pros

    Highly stable company with a solid business strategy. Arguably the best in its business.

    The people are extremely bright and friendly and if you are looking for experience in real estate you couldn't work for a better company. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    The actual office space is awful and old-school. Unfortunately BXP's work environment itself is still stuck in 1990. Ability to work remotely, which seems standard at any job these days, is not generally encouraged or supported as well as an option...... Guess they need to make sure their office buildings stay full!

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the tried and true business strategy of best buildings in the best markets with an eye in other strong markets as well
