    I have been working at Situs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From the moment you enter the doors, "family" and positive "culture" is emphasized. The training they initially provide is fun and challenging. You are exposed to a myriad of topics, and form relationships that carry over into the work environment. Soon you learn that the "family" and positive "culture" spoken of is a reality, as this location acts it out with continual work events, and even within its continual training. All encounters with everyone at this location have been positive, professional, and reciprocal. A positive attitude, desire to be challenged to learn, and a desire to engage in challenging and interesting work will allow one to fit well into this environment. My personal opinion is that this location has a very positive future ahead of itself. Management knows the most valuable resource here, the employees. A clear and genuine message is being conveyed properly by management to effectuate very positive change. Employees have many opportunities to participate in solving problems or challenges this location may face. A sense of being able to belong is in the air here, and that message is also getting across. All in all, I would not be surprised if this location became an even more desired place to work in the future. (The above review is based upon being as fair and objective as possible. I have 10+ years in the workforce, many of them at a top management position).

    Cons

    I am required to write 5 words in this block.

    Advice to Management

    There is a good balance of focus on employee empowerment and profitability. You have narrowed the divide between leadership/workforce to a very healthy level. I like that you are always trying to find 'better ways' in all aspects of the business. Your methods to communicate your positive message are very well thought out. I see a good amount of emotional intelligence in the leadership; some elements even touching transformational leadership. Keep trying to improve, but I know you will. And that is very good leading by example.

    Pros

    Pros

    Situs provides endless learning and career opportunities. Whether you're someone who is just out of college, or you've been in the working world for a long time, you learn more than you can imagine here. Management truly cares about each and every employee. This is a job where you get just as much out of it as you put in. If you're truly willing to work hard and learn, you'll love this company. The culture has improved greatly over the past couple of years. The benefits are excellent and vacation time is more than generous. Employees are greatly encouraged to use time off. You will not find better benefits or more generous time off policy anywhere else in this area. The Robbins office has been improved greatly by renovations that were completed - the office is beautiful and the environment encourages interaction among all employees. The CEO is excellent and truly cares about the Robbins location and all employees.

    Cons

    None. This is an excellent company and location.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! The culture has improved greatly, and I look forward to coming to work here. Thanks for all that you do.

    I have been working at Situs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people that work in the Situs Robbins office are wonderful and really focus on creating an outstanding work environment. Situs has incredible benefits (including medical, dental, and vision) and pays over 90% toward benefit premiums for employees and their families. PTO (paid time off) is another fantastic benefit. Employees get 20 paid days off in their first year, which increases to 25 days after five years of employment. I previously worked in an organization where individuals had to be employed for one year before taking any paid time off. In addition, they offer six weeks of maternity leave at full pay. A collaborative, team atmosphere is important to the success of any organization and Situs strives to create this through regularly scheduled social events and by working hard to create and maintain a positive culture.

    Cons

    The stress I put on myself to have a healthy work/life balance (even though Situs encourages vacation time).

    Advice to Management

    We are fortunate that Situs seeks to promote from within. It is easy to blame others when personal aspirations of a promotion are not achieved. It is much more difficult to look inside oneself and ask, “In what areas can I improve?”. Continue to provide consistent feedback and goal setting that can help employees reach their potential.

    I worked at Situs full-time

    Pros

    Good access to industry information

    Cons

    Workload! Workload! Workload! Sweatshop! Sweatshop! Sweatshop!

    Advice to Management

    Situs is nothing more than a glorified SWEATSHOP! Director, Vice President, Assistant Vice President, Associate, Analyst. It’s all the same at Situs. Although you may be hired at a senior level the party is over after the first week of employment, when you soon realize that you are doing “grunt” work. Situs has a unique business model because they simply do all the “grunt” work. So unless you want to bump yourselves back 20 years in your career, I suggest you avoid Situs at all cost. Huge disappointment!

    Pros

    A lot of work, but you learn a lot
    This isn't a job for people who want to work 9-5 and work as little as possible. You will learn a lot about commercial real estate, as the amount of work almost requires you too.

    Cons

    Workload can get overwhelming

    Advice to Management

    People that want to work hard will have numerous opportunities available for them.

    I worked at Situs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and time off are very good. Employer pays 90% of insurance and 20 days off per year in first year plus holidays.

    Cons

    Some employees are allowed to run over others. Upper management has seemed to lose sight of the importance of treating their employees well. It has become more business oriented and culture has declined due to new ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be treated as if they matter and are important to the company. It seems that it is getting easier for upper management to get rid of long term employees. Most long term employees are not paid as well as new hires. Provide more room for advancement and pay increases. Just because Robbins is a small community in a rural area of NC it does not mean that the employees are less valuable than their counterparts in large cities. Pay the employees what they deserve without blaming the reason for the low pay on the location.

    Prepare to become a statue at work - as you never get to leave your desk. Long hours, no bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, it's that simple.

    Pros

    You at least get a paycheck on time

    Cons

    Constant backstabbing, gossiping from management about employees, no training, terrible place to start a career. And stop having current employees write good reviewed to boost your ratings on here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop gossiping about employees openly, offer more training opportunities, and quit with the backstabbing/covering your end for mistakes. Management needs to change with the times. Not a company that's great for millenials to work because management is unwilling to adapt.

    I worked at Situs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A pay check.
    Team members were hard working. (They had to be.)

    Cons

    Senior management was incompetent.
    Backstabbing among fellow employees and especially at the director level.
    It is THE worst place I have ever worked.
    Long hours.
    No instruction.
    Sweat shop.
    Because the company takes service overflow deals and bids at lowest level to competitors, there was tremendous pressure by management to never over bill hours worked. I knew several employees who under marked hours completed on jobs because of this. Talk about an ethical conundrum.

    Don't work here. Unemployment is better for your mental health.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother. They won't listen.
