    Pros

    The compensation is competitve with the general market. The location is spectacular with many amenities and restaurants nearby. Workload is very reasonable for financial-type firm

    Can be overly analytical and slow with regards to personnel promotions/hiring. There tends to be a lot of energy spent for CYA instead of just resolving problems.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize how much of a solid staff is in place as compared to other firms. Take some time to make the workplace a little more fun.

    Pros

    Boston Properties always goes about their work in the most professional manner possible. Dotting every "i" and crossing every "t".

    Cons

    Extremely corporate. It's either Sarbanes-Oxley or paranoid management but half of your time seems to be spent preparing for a future internal audit.

    Advice to Management

    Employees spend inordinate amount of time cya'ing. Find a way to make the environment more conducive to producing rather than preparing for audits.
