    I worked at EQ Office full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No longer any pros due to recent change in Property Management leadership.

    Cons

    I left the company voluntarily for many reasons. All I can say is I do not recommend taking a Property Management position at EQ Office. Legal, Finance, Asset Management, Marketing, and Engineering all seem to be fine from what I observed.

    I have been working at EQ Office full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It appears the leadership team has stabilized with far less turnover of senior management. The current CEO has redefined the way we look at space, our Tenants and business partners. Which has created opportunities for personal growth and makes coming to the office exciting and challenging (in a good way). Over the last 18 months it has become far more clear as to how the company intends to operate as we move forward and EQ Office seems to be branding itself as a company who embraces change and continues to change to adapt to the market. The name change from Equity Office to EQ Office alone has sent a great message in my opinion.

    Cons

    The real estate industry itself has inherent cons related to the consistent acquisition and disposition process, so stability is always lacking. But that isn't "EQ Office", it's every management and leasing firm in the country. We chose this career however, so we knew what the cons were. With respect to EQ Office, the outsourcing of benefit/payroll administration as well as property accounting to 3rd parties hasn't been well received by most, including myself. Insperity and CBRE Accounting have made my job more difficult to some extent.
