I have been working at Boston Properties full-time

Pros

401K match, Getting out at 3Pm on Fridays, 4 weeks vacation

Cons

Workloads are unmanageable and managers know it and do not care. Old and stuffy atmosphere. Other departments have nothing better to do than to complain about others work/conduct.

Advice to Management

Work on pleasing employees instead of aggravating them so much they want to leave to escape stuffy boys club mentality.

    I have been working at Boston Properties full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great 401K, holidays, time off. Health insurance used to be better but that is pretty much everywhere now.
    Employee perks are great. Some of the managers are really great to work with.
    It is a great company, but some things need to change.

    Cons

    - People that do great are rarely recognized, the recognition always goes to the manager that didn't do anything.
    - Won't promote from within to people that deserve it, think that you are nothing without a bachelors degree even though you have more on the job experience than someone who has a bachelors off the street.
    - Pile a lot of extra work on without getting paid for what you truly do.
    - Pay isn't all that great.
    - Micromanagement, higher management treat lower level employees like they don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the lower level people that help your properties run and create a good name for your company. Promote people that truly deserve it, don't hold them back just because of education, on the job experience goes a long way and is valuable as well.

    Pros

    Well known in real estate industry, exposure to many departments

    Cons

    Do not promote from within, no opportunity for advancement, annual review process is very time consuming to only have the same result of a very small raise and no title change, office management treats employees like children.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing great employees left and right because they feel under appreciated.
