    Pros

    they are large so you will get a paycheck. benefits are good but expensive.

    Cons

    - poor business processes
    - old antiquated systems that are poorly integrated
    - extremely micromanaged
    - poor training
    - condescending management culture

    Advice to Management

    Put an actual training program together with job aides to refer to. Get a real, functional rental management system and integrate it fully with you JDE accounting system. Spend money in the right places to make money. Absolutely must up date the accounting systems that "support" the actual properties that are the bread and butter of the company. They are terrible! This implementation of Yardi is a complete joke.

    Pros

    Good benefits program, great external reputation, amazing construction projects.

    Cons

    Forward thinking and progress are ruined by internal politics. The only way to survive or get ahead is to be a "yes man" and conform to the company. Management is archaic and blind to the changing times. Work from home is viewed as a privilege and only available to certain people, based on no specific criteria other than "Does the VP like you?"

    Advice to Management

    Get management training, you are losing great people because of your poor actions. Leadership at the project level is awful and does not understand construction.

    I worked at Related Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting business and the projects are challenging

    Cons

    No process or structure for critical business applications so everyone does it his own way leaving folks open to fail. Very little transparency or communication from upper management on key business goals. Poor management of staff levels. Business makes poor decisions and staff that works 24x7 to support the organization gets laid off in large numbers. High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to create a structure that people can work to and be accountable to. Communicate goals to the organization and manage staffing so there are not periodic huge layoffs
