    I have been working at Inland Real Estate Group full-time

    Pros

    Nice people who make you feel welcome. They have an employee appreciation day every year.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive. Raises are small. They've started to offer better benefits, but still have work to do in this area. Career advancement is hard to come by at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Start talking to employees and getting to know them. (Not just the ones who are related to someone in upper management or you just happen to have contact with them during the course of your job. Dig deep and spend the time to get to really know everybody.) Find out what their skill sets are and where else those skills might be useful in the company. Then help them get on a path where they can take on more responsibility and advance their careers. Train them, if necessary. There's been a lot of hiring from the outside and not enough promotion from within. Give everybody a fair chance to advance their careers if you care about retaining people. Also, give employees the opportunity to evaluate their managers.

    Pros

    Average industry benefits... Better benefit packages are out there. They sell hard on their 401 k which is a total scam!

    Cons

    Very low pay in regards to industry standards. Management is completely out of touch and disregards important ground level issues. Very poor tenant relations! Its all about corporate mentality!

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to be proactive or at least show some concern for your maintenance staff!

    Pros

    Their track record speaks for itself... They have spit out 4 successful funds and the top execs continue to cash flow off those.

     Deal volume is typically high, and depending on your given entity, there are a handful of individuals that are knowledgeable and great people to learn and work under.

    The company's name speaks for itself, and looks great on a resume.

    Pay is at market and solid.

    Cons

    The non-traded REIT space has run its course. Inland, like others (Cole, ARC, etc) simply are not raising capital. The business model is outdated and the combination of the inability to raise capital and the mandatory requirements to deploy capital ultimately leads to a bad mix and clashing of heads throughout.

    Some of the executives genuinely care about the company and the employees, while others are reaping the benefits of their title and are silo'd within their given entity and could care less about others.

    Once Joe Cosenza retires, I am scared to see where this company will land as he keeps the ship afloat.

    Friendly people, adequate PTO, Annual employee picnic and holiday party. New office. Safe and clean working environment. In house gym. Starbucks brand coffee. Close to the Oak Brook mall. 37.5 hours/ week.

    Company went through a recent merger and is in a transition phase.
    Not enough training.
    Not enough options for advancement.
    Recent layoffs and assigned additional work to employees without additional compensation.
    Small personal working area with many distractions.
    Initiated a CORE program and not many employees follow it.

    Spend time with your employees and value their interest to grow. Provide efficient communication to all employees. Many procedures aren't updated and is difficult for individuals to get assignments done on time.

    I worked at Inland Real Estate Group full-time

    Pros

    Working 37.50 hours, that's about it.

    Cons

    There is alot of old money circulating throughout the company and it shows. Dan Goodwin always describes the company as innovative and forward thinking. I beg to differ. There is nothing innovative about this company and operates as if it were still 1992. This will also depend on the department that you choose to go to. I will not mention the department I was in, however, I would advise to be very selective and make sure you know what you're getting into. Also, make sure that you're not being lied to about the job description which seems to happen often at Inland. They say they're looking for innovative individuals with new ideas, however, that's not. Best advice is if you want to keep your job, keep your mouth shut, nod and smile. The pay is comical.

    Advice to Management

    Push your departments to be honest with candidates and not lie about job descriptions and what they're looking for. Push your departments to offer support and show appreciation to employees.
