    I worked at Tishman Speyer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Proximity to public transportation Great company to have your resume, Established company so you have job security. Some nice perks.

    Cons

    You only get promoted if you are in the Clique. They don't value hard quality work. There are too many Supervisors and not enough workers. You often feel like a number and not a person. No work/life balance. They feel like they own you. They don't treat people equitably. Long-term employees don't get any acknowledgment. I can go on

    Advice to Management

    Allow staff to move and grow. Don't base promotions on who is in the in crowd. Hire a real HR team that actually advocates for the staff and doesn't just worry about the company. Don't give all the credit to management. Reduce the size of the executive staff and get more workers
