    I have been working at W. P. Carey full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I’ve been with the company for over a decade. I’m proud to spend the bulk of my day with some of the hardest working people in the industry. People that I not only see as colleagues but as long term friends. This firm not only challenges you to think outside the box, but values what input you may bring to the table. The sense of community continues to bring me back to work each day, and I appreciate the value they see...

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the family atmosphere you have worked so hard to build. I can assure you it is not lost on so many of us that work here.

    There were some significant changes to leadership and direction during my time there, but the company was growing and they seem to now have a more solidified corporate strategy.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at W. P. Carey full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Culture is great, benefits and comp are generous and aligned with employees' needs, recent changes in strategy have helped to create a clearer understanding of the business

    Cons

    Because it's a small company, growth tends to be slower and more organic. Not a lot of ladders to climb...

    Advice to Management

    Keep heading in the right direction

    I have been working at W. P. Carey full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are very good. No fancy in-office perks like free lunches, etc., but the healthcare and retirement benefits are solid for this day and age. Compensation is not the highest but is fair. Overall a pleasant place to work. I think the outgoing CEO had a difficult job to do in restructuring the company for future growth opportunity, including shutting down a large division, and therefore was not "well liked"...

    Cons

    Many people hesitant to help you. I can't figure out if they are just very busy or lazy but it can be very difficult to get things done between departments. Uncertain if there is much opportunity for growth as most departments are pretty small.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the strong benefits package and give employees (outside of management) more opportunity to have their voices heard in regards to company policies and culture.

    I worked at W. P. Carey full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Best experience of my career! I was very honored to have been a part of Bill Carey's legacy. His value system, which focused on putting the investors first, permeated the organization. He was right, if you focus on what is good for the investor, everything else falls into place. This philosophy combined with smart, humble talent has contributed to an unparalleled track record over 40 years and 15 funds that have gone...

    Cons

    Business model is shifting and long term plan is unclear but I have no doubt this will remain a profitable and strong business.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain Bill Carey's fundamental principles, he had a remarkable moral compass! Be sure new employees fully understand the principles that have guided the company to success for over four decades.
