    I worked at Brandywine Realty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good working office environment. Management was professional and good to work with in the office. Management celebrated employee's achievements. Growth was encouraged.

    Cons

    I was hired a temporary employee, after I quit they offered the next person my position as a permanent employee.

    Advice to Management

    I would say continue to encourage growth within employees and continue to reward them for their achievements and willingness to grow with the company.

    Pros

    Bagel fridays, free soda machine, ping pong and pool table in HQ. Ability to work remote when required or necessary.

    Cons

    High school clique type atmosphere between long time employees.
    If you don't follow the unwritten rules and learn your place. Serious consequences can come to those who defy.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance; company has early closing on Fridays during the summer and also before most national holidays. This gives employees the opportunity to get a head-start to the holidays, especially if they need to travel.

    Cons

    No clear path to advancing within company. Being a lean real estate company, with low employee turn-over, sometimes it feels as though there's no clear path to taking on leadership roles within company. You more or less have to wait till senior people move on, which does not happen often. If it does happen, it may be at a location that is not convenient.

    Advice to Management

    Create a clear path to career advancement within company. One of the key reasons I left to get an MBA was to open up options for career advancement.

    I worked at Brandywine Realty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Seemed like a good company and their properties, especially in the Northeast, were market leaders.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management to employees, deep lack of respect towards associates and a good old boy feeling.across the board. Properties in the Richmond market are older, in not the best areas, constantly changing vendors leads to unhappy tenants.

    Advice to Management

    Time to make middle management changes.
