      Great entry into commercial real estate.

      May 10, 2021 - Portfolio Lease Coordinator in Saint Louis, MO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      This position was a great entry into the world of Commercial Real Estate. You gain a good base level knowledge of the industry in a very short time and you are exposed to top tier F500 clients. The office is beautiful. It is used as a showpiece for clients and has plenty of amenities on each floor. The benefits are great and PTO is flexible with 20 days per year and a flexible WFH schedule. Every major federal holiday off and leadership would often surprise us with extra days or half days off.

      Cons

      There is not much growth opportunity. There are a lot of cliques for a lack of a better terminology . Unless you knew the right people you would not be considered for promotions, regardless of your skill level. Raises were rare or non-existent regardless of performance rating. Lack of company policy clarification between teams. Different sets of rules for different accounts in regards to work from home and other policies Compensation was low even by St. Louis standards which is a very low Cost of Living area. Many of my coworkers had second and third jobs. There is an incredibly high turnover rate within the Portfolio Services Center. My account of 10+ had a turn over rate of 70%+ during my time at the firm. 401k match is nearly non-existent at 2%

      Apr 8, 2021 - Portfolio Administration Coordinator in Saint Louis, MO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - 15 days PTO + 5 sick days + 11 company holidays (1 floating, you get to pick it) - Remote working during Covid-19 pandemic - Employee Resource Groups (ERG)

      Cons

      - Rapid growth. Senior associates get moved to, or stay on high profile clients. Some duties, like lease document abstraction, have moved overseas. This somehow translates to associates having to take on more clients due to having less time spent on document abstraction. Unless 100% allocated to one account, associates are guaranteed a full plate of work and then some. - Pay does not feel like it equates to the amount of workload. Raises are small (1-4% base salary) - Although associates get lots of PTO, do not expect someone to do your work for you. It will just accumulate until you get back
