    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.

    Pros

    Brandywine is regionalized so teamwork with the vaious regions was important for those of us working at the corporatate office. Everyone in the different regions was always verry helpful at getting what you needed from them.

    Cons

    Often when working on projects or deadlines I worked long hours and did not have much time for family. That would really be my only negative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep us informed of what's going on.

    Pros

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

    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 5 years)

    Pros

    From the very top, management regards its employees as it greatest asset. There is also a strong commitment to service in the community.

    Cons

    As the company has become larger, it had lost some of its smaller company appeal. The CFO definitely brings a very non-personal corporate feel to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to to your roots. You can still be a major player in the commercial RE world and still behave like the company that existed in Newtown Square and Plymouth Road.
