    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

    Great company with good benefits and lots of trainings.
    Like how they threatened workers and residents.
    Maybe not the best but different for sure

    Cons

    Must to learn their language (i love it).
    It has different ways to realize and provide good customer service.
    They have nice way to teach employees working like this.

    Advice to Management

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

    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.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a company that cares about its people Prometheus is it! I’ve been with Prometheus for a little over 3 years now and it that time have been able to grow my career from a Neighbor Ambassador to an Assistant Neighborhood Director. Whatever your goals are, you will have the full support of the company to get you there. From our amazing Learning and Development team making sure you hit the ground running with some of the best training around and your personal Playbook Coach seeing you through your first 2 weeks, to continued training like our Quest Programs to prepare you for a management role (available for Neighborhood Service Managers, Assistant Neighborhood Directors, and Neighborhood Directors).
    Beyond caring about its Prometheans, Prometheus also believes in building better Neighborhoods, with our program POrCH all Prometheans are encouraged to volunteer for non profits that they are passionate about. We’ve provided support to some amazing local organizations such as Family House, Loaves and Fishes, Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity, and Outdoors for All, just to name a few, and Prometheus gives back 30% of its profits to charity. Not many other companies that say that.
    The benefits are unmatched in our industry, with full health care coverage, discounted gym memberships, and even your birthday is considered a Holiday every year! But don’t just take my word for how awesome this company is; take a look at some of the many awards we’ve won: 100 Best Workplaces for Women 2016, Large Business “Best of the Best” Award, Best Places to Work (2016, 2015, 2014), and Property Management Company of the Year 2015 just to name a few!
    I’m happy to call Prometheus HOME and look forward to the years to come with them.

    Pros

    Culture
    Volunteer work
    Benefits
    Home office makes us all feel like part of a family.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth in the Portland region. Would love to stay with this company but the lack of areas to grow into are limiting for those reaching to achieve more in their career.

    Advice to Management

    Shadow a field employee every quarter so you can have a refresher course on what its like to be in our position day to day. Might help when creating new DOPs or POPs.

    Pros

    I wish more companies would emphasize the importance of the health of their employees and employees family members and offer to pay 100% of medical benefits.

    Cons

    No matter the level you enter the company there is an abundance of training whether your experienced or not. I feel they should personaluze training for different levels of expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Be selective when granting power and authority, know your people, listen to your employees. They are the best source of feed back.
