    I have been working at W. P. Carey full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Terrific corporate culture - focused on creating shareholder value and motivating employees. Entrepreneurial environment allows intelligent and hard-working employees to increase responsibility and be rewarded. Benefits, although not what they used to be, are still better than most comparable companies.

    Cons

    As the company grows it has become slightly more bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Recent changes in management have employees feeling energized.

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

    Pros

    Incredibly smart people, diversified vision/portfolio of products. Really good benefits as far as medical. Contributes to the community through their Carey Forward initiative. Not as high stress as most Wall Street finance firms.

    Cons

    Bonuses and base pay on the lower side. Change in leadership has taken a step backwards as far as innovation. Likely that the great benefits will be taken away piecemeal, as has been the trend over the past 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Lower headcount not recommended given the complexity of the business.
