    I have been working at Prometheus Real Estate Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Prometheus is a company unlike any other. The culture, the people, and the revolutionary way things are done in our company is what makes Prometheus the perfect place to call HOME for your career. 100% paid benefits for Prometheans and their families, growth opportunities, and a development pipeline that will keep us growing for years to come are just more reasons that make Prometheus the best place to work!

    Cons

    Hard to come by. Whenever something comes up or feedback is given that something can be improved upon, it is taken seriously and is quickly considered for change or improvement. Roundtables are regularly scheduled with the executive team and field Prometheans for the very purpose to discuss what is working and what could be better.

    Advice to Management

    I have worked for this company for over 10 years and the only thing I can say is that I couldn't be more proud to work for Prometheus than I am today.

    Pros

    Prometheus offers countless opportunities for growth and they invest a lot of time and money in their employees. It's clear that they take pride in their Prometheans. Not to mention we get to go to Great America every year!

    Cons

    When you work at such an innovative company, it makes working for anyone else lack luster.

    Pros

    Prometheus is a wonderful place to work! Prometheus promises "Home at Work" and we deliver!

    It's a special environment whether you work at one of our many neighborhoods or in Home Office. There is a laid back vibe and a care for all Prometheans. When I say care, I actually mean it! The people around you truly want the best for you and that's a cool feeling to have at your workplace!

    Most Prometheus job opportunities are filled by internal promotions or referrals. We develop and grow our talent! There are so many opportunities out there for Prometheans, especially if you live in the Bay Area where we are are the largest private owner of multifamily homes! We're growing too... look out for new neighborhoods coming your way.

    We don't try to be like everyone else! We want to be different. We want to be revolutionary! Come view one of our neighborhoods and you'll see that it's not a typical leasing experience.

    We give back to the communities we operate in too! Our POrCH program allows Prometheans to volunteer time and get involved. We back it up with our pocketbooks too. Prometheus donates a large amount of money every year to worthy causes.

    If you want to work somewhere cold, bottom-line obsessed, then you'll find plenty of companies out there. If you want lots of good vibes, smiles, and warm, fuzzy feelings that sustain you while you work hard with other passionate people, then you're looking at the right company! Prometheus is where it's at! Come on home!

    Cons

    Prometheus takes all reviews seriously and tries to tackle anything that comes up as a con. That makes it hard to find something that hasn't already been addressed or in process to be addressed. All that said, Prometheans tend to earn a little less then the market warrants for their skillset, talents, and personality. We make up for it in 100% paid benefits and culture but it would be nice to see us make some changes around pay/bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    You're amazing! Keep listening and allowing us to speak up... even with the craziest of ideas. Thank you!

    I worked at Prometheus Real Estate Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent corporate culture (one that takes away the feeling you get from most corporations anyway). The company did well in training their employees for success, benefits and 401k matching aside.

    Cons

    As a leasing agent, the outcome of the work environment heavily depends on your property manager. Some managers can misguide workloads and instructions that can cause due hardship to the entire property complex's team. Expectations can be prone to exceed what is within your job description, many employees within this company move around to other properties or companies as well - causing a revolving door effect. I find despite the positive mannerisms in this company - certain policies involving their clients are very unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people for the job, make sure they can leave to go home on time by creating large amount of tasks to do. People can tell by your property Yelp reviews that your facade for customers first is fading away.

    They have nice way to teach employees working like this.

    Advice to Management

    They need to raise the salaries (nowadays everybody does that)
