    I have been working at Inland Real Estate Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture from the past, but an alternate new culture being pushed by newcomers

    Cons

    The split in cultures divides the company

    Advice to Management

    Need to unify the company under a single culture, the one that has worked for the past 50 years, with some tweaking to update to current employee expectations.

    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!

    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.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Good benefits,

    Cons

    IT needs upgrading. Need to listen to new younger employee ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Inland used to be a great company to work for but new management in the Investment and Securites areas appear to be poisoning the company. They keep bringing on new senior executives from competitors that do not seem to care about the employees that built the company and have been there for years.

    Pros

    Obviously, given the company's structure, this all may vary depending on your entity. Overall great people to work with/for. Senior management is very accessible, and cares about your success. Benefits/pay are decent. The amount of people who have been here 20+ years is enough of a testament to what you can expect here.

    Cons

    Wish we were a little closer to the city but that seems to be the minority opinion. Other than that, not much else.

    Pros

    Positive enviornment, room for growth, value new ideas, strong ethics, focus on honest reputation, strong recent management hires, innovative product line, intergrity is primary focus

    Cons

    Haven't found any as of yet. People had complained about stagnant enviornment with a lot of nepotism. Although there are a fair amount of family members employed in the organazation, they are all very good at what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing exactly what you are! The value you are adding by keeping focus on ethics and integrity will continue to set the company apart from the competition.
