    I worked at Crescent Real Estate (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are outstanding and the culture provides everything you need. People are professional and work to create a team atmosphere and a performance culture.

    Cons

    Tracks market conditions so workforce size has adapted from early fast growth in the 90s to selling itself, returning to manage the same assets it sold, selling a large portion of those assets and now it appears back to acquisition mode.

    Advice to Management

    You created a pretty amazing culture in the 90s through 2006 or so and it was different from 2007 through more recently though steady. Hope to watch the company build again.

    I worked at Crescent Real Estate full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company with great working atmosphere!

    Cons

    Layoffs killed the company. Sold all of their properties and let almost entire staff go. Not much of a company these days.

    Advice to Management

    When you build a company that everyone loves, dont kill it to make an immediate profit!

    Pros

    A great company to be a part of. Very blessed to have learned so much and been a part of a great organization even through the rough times.

    Cons

    Was a part of this organization when it was thriving and then when the layoffs started. The only con is that it is no longer a growing and thriving company.

    I worked at Crescent Real Estate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best people I have ever been associated with. Smart, very hard working, creative and highly ethical. Pay was good.

    Cons

    We worked very hard, but we were building the company then. There were some politics, but isn't there always? My time with the company ended before it was sold to MSREF but much of the same management is still in place.

    Advice to Management

    Avenues of communication weren't very strong. I felt like top management was in a bubble.

    Solid management team that cares about creating value for the company and work/life balance for the employees.

    Rocky management changes in the past, uncertain future

    Advice to Management

    None to speak of; good job overall.

    Pros

    The job was almost perfect. The ability to make decisions and be a creative problem solver is fantastic. There is an immediate level of resposibility and great deal of muli-tasking required for success - also something that I loved. The benefits were good and compensations above others in the market.

    Cons

    The downside was that I was not allowed to take time off without a lot of drama. This is not a diverse company, they do not embrace or encourage minorities to hold managment positions. Unfortunately, this seems to be company wide. There is also a culture of elitism that is dominant in some of the buildings, but not all buildings - others are great. It really depends on where you are and who the property managers are.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should spend some time at the property level and investigate issues when things come up so they can see and understand where the real problems are.

    Pros

    Great people to work for, have good benefits and compensation. You could take problems to other departments and managers and expect them to listen.

    Cons

    The sale to Morgan Stanley was a difficult transition for employees. While the company did its best to limit the loss of jobs, it could have been communicated better.
