No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Highwoods Properties full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Highest quality of financial reporting and understanding of needs of a qualified property manager.

Cons

Lack of adequate support staffing. Director's unability to recognize the strengths of their managers and deligate without micromanaging.

Advice to Management

An admin assistant is not a perk, it's a necessity to allow the manager to manage, conduct tenant meetings and provide above average tenant services.

    "Wonderful people to work; however, a very strong "good-old-boy" approach to leadership"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent, the salary a little bit higher than competitive. For those who like hard work and challenge, it's there. Highwoods is a great "people place" with some of the best in the business on staff.

    Cons

    Question whether Highwoods' future is as rosy and bright as Management would convey. Massive layoffs (with a large percentage of older employees with tenure benefits) strongly suggest that this company may be in trouble. Be aware that there is risk involved with hitching your star to this company -- not all things are truly the way they are told..

    Advice to Management

    Honest open communication from managment will result in honest, open, and loyal support from the staff level. Time to crawl out of the 1900s.

    I worked at Highwoods Properties full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance is easy to achieve.
    This is a company that cares about their employees and it shows with the generous benefits and the amount of trust they show their staff.
    Plenty of room to grow and learn from some of the best.
    Employees are trusted and allowed to be creative. Ideas from all employees are encouraged.

    Cons

    Getting your foot in the door may be a challenge, but once you're in give it your all and make yourself valuable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and the culture you bring to your company.
