    I worked at The Trump Organization full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great learning experience and had the pleasure of working for some great people. 9-5 type of environment unless work needed to be completed.

    Cons

    No upward movement. Education was discouraged. No HR in the office so upper management treated employees as they pleased. Too much playing politics. Race was a big issue in the corporate office. Taking time off was frowned on. It was all about who you knew not what you knew. Health benefits were good but it didn't help that CEO and CFO had access to see what type of medical procedure or visit you were doing.

    Advice to Management

    Allow career paths for your staff.

    I have been working at The Trump Organization full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I feel incredibly fortunate to come to work each day and be a part of such an extraordinary team of people at The Trump Organization. From day one, I noticed that the company was built on an unbelievably strong foundation of kind and hard-working employees, many who have been with the organization for well over a decade, loyalty and a shared camaraderie that is unlike any other company I have worked for.

    If you are looking to grow with a company that will value your hard work and loyalty, I would 100% recommend pursuing an opportunity at The Trump Organization.

    Cons

    It is a very busy and exciting time in the world of Trump – employees often wear many hats and are given a lot of responsibility! This is something really I love and sincerely value about the company, but realize it may not be for everyone.

    I have been working at The Trump Organization full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One thing becomes immediately apparent on the first day of work here – this is the “A” league. Everyone is smart and personable and understands the importance that comes along with working and performing for the Trump family. No internal politics due to very strong leadership at the top, a refreshing change of pace from companies of similar size and scope. The Trump family is incredibly motivating and engaged in work across all levels of the organization – they roll up their sleeves and dive into projects with team members providing an unmatched opportunity for mentorship from some of the highest profile business leaders in the country. Along with senior management they are very approachable and good listeners – everyone plays a role in the growth of the company.

    Fun benefits include high profile celebrities, politicians & news media visiting/filming regularly at the office, food and snacks routinely delivered to the kitchen, a popcorn machine, incredible views of Manhattan and Central Park from hallways & conference rooms and some of the most highly coveted real estate assets in the world to work on projects with, visit and grow. It’s not uncommon to meet people who have worked here for 10, 20 and 30 years – a testament to what the Trump's bring to the table for their employees and the loyalty they receive in return. Very family friendly, solid health benefits and 401K with generous match. Nice discounts at Trump Café, Grill, Ice Cream, etc which are all located in the lobby of the building.

    Cons

    Expectations and responsibility are high – you’re expected to execute challenging projects assigned at all levels. This is after all a company that had a prime-time reality TV show about what it’s like to be hired and work here. There’s no hiding in the hallways where the Apprentice was literally filmed.

    Advice to Management

    There is truly no company like The Trump Organization that combines Commercial/Residential Real Estate, Championship Golf, Luxury Hotels, a Winery, Luxury Realty Brokerage, Apparel, Merchandise and Entertainment (Television Production Company, Modeling Agency, Books, Ice Skating Rinks, Fine Dining, etc) all under one brand. With endless projects available to work on continue expansion of team resources to meet growth demands across all business units.

    Pros

    Interesting company to work for, potential to meet a lot of high profile people, nice and friendly co-workers, family-run business atmosphere, room to grow

    Cons

    Long hours depending on the position, high stress environment, can get very intense depending on who you work directly under

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all of the administrative support is treated fairly. Depending on the direct supervisor, some assistants made significantly more or less in comparable roles.
