I have been working at Boston Properties full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits are very good and there are a lot of wonderful people

Cons

Hiring process is so slow that good candidates are lost to other offers. Pay is low with minimal 1.5-2% annual raises. Work load varies by department as do benefits like summer Fridays which are not available to all. Company prefers to move employees to new positions internally rather than hire from outside to avoid having to pay higher (market) salaries

Advice to Management

The old moto of "our employees make us the success we are" has been completely forgotten. Stop treating employees like they are replaceable, work ethic is suffering. Find a way to vet new hires quicker so BP has at least a chance at filling some of the open positions. It is sad to see so many good people leaving but management has left employees with little choice to pursue advancement or salary increases

    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.
