    I worked at W. P. Carey full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Younger associates and "worker bees" of the firm are great people, very friendly and kind.
    Humanitarian minded with employee volunteer program.

    Cons

    Sales, Marketing and HR have senior management issues - creating a toxic work environment, lacking the ability to communicate clearly and truthfully their objectives; have a hard time receiving criticism and new ideas from younger associates

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate senior management and work on mentoring younger associates

    I worked at W. P. Carey full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great for young people with no family and wants a firm for a short term for their résumé. Good benefits.

    Cons

    They think they own you. Blackberry. Email on a Saturday at 3 Am. Work till 11 pm. Expect to work holidays including day after thanksgiving/ additionally training is by consultants that want perm jobs. Computer system is very poor, although they are looking to upgrade within 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Have the perm employees train newcomers and not the temp. Also be honest about the constant long long hours. Get a new computer program faster. Perhaps your employees won't have to work to midnight. Excel on manual is unheard in this day in age!

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They have good benefits for employees.

    Cons

    They barely hire minorities. They hire their relatives for top management. Work you to death with no appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Dont make employees work multiple jobs just to save on cost. There should be no discriminaton against minorities and also practice equal pay.

    I worked at W. P. Carey full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, the best I have seen

    Cons

    Can't make up their mind on what they want
    long hours
    micro-managed out the ying yang
    almost like being in school...if you aren't in the "click" you are ignored
    no recognition
    management will get rid of people just for the "heck" of it ...with no real reason, even when their "Review" is Excellent

    Advice to Management

    Take a chill pill and pay attention to what it going on
    learn from field
    Take training classes
