  1. "Micromanagerial, inflexible work environment"

    Pros

    Compensation (base salary and bonus) is decent, some colleagues were great, accessibility of office from public transit

    Cons

    Accounting manager will micromanage everything you do at the office, whether it be work-related or personal. Never expect to be shown any real gratitude for a job well done, only additional assignments and a fake offering of "thanks." Management struggles to show support or motivation of its colleagues but rather expects instant eagerness and acceptance of increasing job duties from the moment you walk in the door. Mandatory Saturday workdays accompany each quarter-end although most of the work could be done within a normal 40 hour work week. Office environment is small, loud, and lacks any form of privacy. PTO is a joke unless you reach the three year mark (which I highly doubt ever happens in the accounting department.)

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage people rather than command them. Embrace your people as individuals and not as accounting robots. Allow accountants to provide upward feedback to management rather than making evaluations a one-way street in which human behaviors are critiqued more than work competence.

    I worked at LaSalle Hotel Properties (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great exposure to hospitality and real estate finance industry. Access to senior management a plus. Also, strong mentorship for entry level employees who show interest.

    Cons

    Due to the small size of the company, when people leave the work is sometimes unevenly distributed; although this could have changed. Additional responsibilities do not mean additional compensation or title promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging strong mentorship and growth opportunities. It was a great "first job out of college" and I was glad to hear more analysts were added to the bullpen.
