    I have been working at Prologis full-time

    Pros

    Great and smart people to work with. Very supportive work environment and flat org structure. The company is big and global yet also fast moving, which gives you numbers of projects to work and make contribution.

    Cons

    I don't really like working in San Francisco, which is my personal preference. Other people may find the company location absolutely awesome (they are located in Pier one with gorgeous seaside views) . Career advancement might be limited depending on what you do.

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, great support staff, inclusion and very understanding when family needs to come first.

    Very political. Projects are pushed around by who yells the loudest. Very 'corporate' and old fashioned when it comes to office environment. Can use an advancement in remote work environments.

    Best in business. The future is bright for Prologis as a result of the re-structuring post merger and the industrial market outlook.

    Cons

    Given the size of the company, decisions can take some "time."

    Pros

    The smartest people are hired (but due to the company structure, much of the labor is contracted to consultants.)
    If you're lucky enough to get on a collaborative team, your efforts are magnified - you can do the best work of your career!
    Values are inspiring in theory and this company gives us opportunities to volunteer

    Cons

    Bad behavior by middle management is tolerated and even implicitly rewarded.
    Culturally damaging - old boy's network, sexist, backbiting and competition are de rigeur, collaboration goes unrewarded.
    Top leadership, with notable exception, are stuck in previous decades' management styles resulting in a lack of risk or innovation
    Hiring consultants (rather than full time workers) makes for incoherence and a lack of continuous improvement. This may give you short-term products and gains but results in long-term problems and net loss.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention, stay up-to-date on current management frameworks and change the archaic corporate culture
    Listen to the people actually DOING THE WORK - what hurts? What would help them? What ideas do they have? Who's doing the actual work (not just the 'talking head')?
    Explicitly reward collaboration and appropriate risk
    There are ways to minimize the effects of having consultants do much of your 'individual contributor' work - learn them and implement them now!
