    I have been working at Douglas Emmett full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Right off the bat, the company offers amazing benefits and a competitive starting salary. With over 500+ employees, I have yet to meet anyone that isn't passionate about what they do and happy to help you learn if you're just starting out. There are opportunities in multiple fields and room for growth if you want to move up in your CAREER, because DE is more than a job. My experience since being hired has been great!

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons.
