    I have been working at Tishman Speyer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent for the requirements of the position.

    Cons

    The is no room for advancement. The favoritism and discrimination is in your face. Management has no respect for the employees in the security department. Family members and friends of management are hired and immediately bumped up to higher positions. We do not know what we are entitled to because we don't get a hard copy contact. The union does not protect its members. We have no representation.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Besides we're here to provide a safe environment for you.
