    Thoroughly enjoyed working there!!

    Pros

    Great teams to work with and everyone puts in the effort! You could always reach out to someone if you had a question and get pointed in the right direction. Everyone took pride in what they contributed and accomplished - fast paced environment so it was never dull. The buildings they invest in as well as build are gorgeous! A lot of attention and detail go into making sure their buildings are cutting edge in design and amenities.

    Cons

    The darn pandemic - not anyone's fault but like many companies it impacted operations and meant a reduction in staff to weather the unprecedented times... I miss working with my team but only wish them much continued success. Honestly, I can't think of any cons. The only thing I can say is if fast pace is not your style, then you may find the environment a bit harder to operate in.

    Pros

    Most of the people are extremely nice Small company you will get to speak with everyone

    Cons

    Difficult to advance ,company ask a lot and expects even more feels almost like a cult mentality with some of the workers, favoritism and it shows, poor training, it truly feels like the company and upper management does not care about the workers that you are just expendable. They do not listen to critiques about themselves and constantly pass the blame.

    Pros

    Various portfolios with a range of opportunities. Good work life balance. Lots of friendly people to work with! Fast paced environment and allows individuals to start something and run with it.

    Cons

    Due to the fast paced environment you need to be someone who is confident and can be independent when needed. Be able to complete tasks with a quick deadline sometimes.

    Pros

    Pay rate at or above average, 401k, presents as easy going but fast paced team environment.

    Cons

    From top to bottom, boozing it up with the development team is the only way to get ahead. That and getting someone else to do your job. Backstabbing and cutthroat for any minion who isn’t in the company core.

    Innovative, Compassionate, Driven Work Environment

    Pros

    This is a great environment for team players who are motivated and upwardly mobile that are seeking a beneficially challenging work place. Schnitzer is fast-paced, results driven, and inclusive. Everyone who works here comes from a different background and brings in a different view of the world which they are able to mold and adapt to each individual team. Schnitzer takes care of their employees when they need it most which is unlike any work place I had ever been a part of. They have really challenged me to grow and have given me every opportunity to do so while also providing me exposure to the ins-and-outs of this industry.

    Cons

    It is a rapidly changing industry which requires a quick turnaround throughout the company to adapt to new ways and necessary changes. While not necessarily a 'con', it can definitely be stressful for the teams as it could be in any workplace.

    Ample opportunity for driven, motivated employees

    Pros

    The small company size allows for the opportunity to make a quick and immediate impact. Responsibilities are not siloed, meaning that employees are able to get a broad exposure to multiple facets of real estate investment, development and management. There are great opportunities to learn and advance for anyone motivated to do so.

    Cons

    This isn't necessarily a con for the right fit, but the company is unapologetic about the fact that the pace is fast and the small team size means employees wear multiple hats-the environment is great for driven self starters that can think quickly on their feet.
