    Pros

    Intelligent and influential coworkers. Everyone seems to love their job here and it is a very peaceful and helpful environment.

    Cons

    No cons from me! I really enjoy working here. The commute is kind of bad but that has nothing to do with DE. I'm actually looking to move closer to make my experience here that much better.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management. I enjoy and applaud the way it currently is. Every time I've needed something or had questions, I get a thorough answer quickly.

    Pros

    -The learning experience: DE encourages personal growth and learning all aspects of commercial real estate/property management.
    -DE is constantly evolving and growing with the times
    -I am exposed to every aspect of the business, so every day is an educational experience
    -DE upholds customer service and genuine care above all else. Respect for our tenants, customers, and vendors is something all employees of DE have in common.
    -The DE staff inspires me to do my best every day. I can honestly say that DE has provide with numerous mentors who I will be forever grateful to for the skills they have taught me. I have worked under the very best in the industry, because those are the people that DE hires. The staff is dedicated, incredibly hard-working, passionate, and just quality people.

    Cons

    -Lots of reporting and paperwork, however I choose to look at as another opportunity to learn.
