    I worked at Historic Restoration full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, goal oriented. The whole company is on the move.

    Cons

    The whole company is on the move. You've got to spend too much time talking to other employees about the company to find out what is going on when you need to be focused on the task at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new employees. It's a tough job, and a lot of them have no idea what they're getting into.

    I have been working at Historic Restoration full-time

    Pros

    Can make a difference in restoring abandoned buildings, work with some highly talented real estate professionals, various and different job opportunities within the firm.

    Cons

    Very high paced, highly competitive work environment that could push some folks over the limit on work/life balance and create stress during peak demand times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the creative ideas and solutions that are generated from within the company and continue to maintain the company mission despite the obstacles presented by the market and third party groups.

    Pros

    I work at one of HRI's properties. The corporate office is very engaged with their employees; they ensure to create a relationship with their employees and often check in on them. Everyone that works in the company are nice and friendly. Although your experience with the company depends on your assigned property, the company seems like a great place and have lots of opportunities for growth, if you're a go-getter.

    Cons

    Although people are nice, it is, indeed, cut-throat and competitive. People will stab you in the back in order to achieve their own agenda. Also, it is quite difficult working with incompetent people. It makes your job just as difficult. The 3-month probationary period is not utilized effectively. Instead of using that period to judge your performance and determine the likelihood of you excelling in the position, they work extremely hard to keep you in the position by selling you false dreams. I found out upon joining this company that they have a VERY high turnover rate, so once you're hired, they will do everything to keep you here, even if that means that your work ethic is poor and you need to find another area of expertise to work.
    HRI does not want you to see the bad parts of the business, and they will do what they can to cover the bad standing of the property. The poor work ethic is never addressed, and no one is held responsible for the poor work production, unless they don't like you and want you to suffer.
    Balancing work and life can sometimes be hard. Although the company will try to work with you, it can become difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at hiring qualified employees. If you see an issue in management, do not over look it and expect other people to fix it. Hold people responsible for the work production (or lack thereof) and give consequences, when appropriate.
