    I have been working at Inland Real Estate Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inland is a wonderful place to work, collaborative team environment, talented people to work with, growing company with room for advancement, listens to ideas and enhancing innovation.

    Cons

    I have not encountered any down sides that I have not found working with other firms. Inland is not perfect, but what company is?

    Advice to Management

    Inland does not need much advice, as they have done billions of dollars in acquisitions and are always seeking better ways to do things. I would say this is pretty darn good. Glad to be a member of this wonderful organization.

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

    Pros

    The salary is above average for the industry!
     They have great benefits!
    Smaller company so you appreciated more for what you do.
    Bonuses are great for the industry.
    Great people employed with them who are always willing to help (other properties).

    Cons

    Corporate is so clueless. No one ever seems to know whats going on when you reach out. IT is useless.

     They assign people to important positions who have little experience in the industry.

    Training is obsolete and is through an online portal.

    When lower positions have great ideas, they are always shot down.

    Gives in to customers too much; and not to the right kind of customer.

    Needs to develop a better reputation in the industry and develop a brand.

    Needs to put more money into the property for events and major repairs.

    Too many restrictions on all systems so you can't get anything done. when you email the contact at corporate you need to move forward, they ignore you or are out of the office.

    Advice to Management

    Look to other bigger management companies for help and examples on how to improve. You could do much better overall but are stuck in old school ways.

    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

    Buying more real estate than selling. If growth continues there will be opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Won't give up on the REIT model of fundraising. Conglomerate that doesn't give clarity to staff regarding which businesses are actually making them money. Extremely slow to change, low payer, very lean staffing, and not doing well on either REIT model. Because it is a conglomerate it is an extremely political organization and there is a significant amount of longtime employees that are a drain on the company.

    Advice to Management

    Put everything behind IPCC and give up on the REIT model. Be more competitive from a compensation standpoint and move on from the legacy employees that are not performing. Take a look at how many employees have left corporately in the last 24 months due to compensation.

    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.

    Be fair, be consistent. More open and consistent communication. Make career pathing more of a reality.
