    I worked at Weingarten Realty (More than a year)

    Pros

    The community is wonderful and a very professional environment.

    Cons

    The only con would be that the office is shared so parking is bad sometimes.

    I have been working at Weingarten Realty (More than a year)

    Pros

    Low turnover and many long tenured employees.

    Cons

    Specifically in my department there is a lot of micro managing and not enough appreciation shown for hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Look for some fresh talent. Although turnover is low, it is to the extent that it has created a stale environment.

    I have been working at Weingarten Realty full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Weingarten because it has been very consistent atmosphere. There has been change but for the most part responsibility level has been consistent. I have also had my first child there& it was stress free, that was awesome. The people I work with are good family people & a decade has been like a couple of years.

    Cons

    No promotions, no value in strengthening employees to do more. Very limited on giving additional responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Not to be so afraid to rock the boat. If we are all allies on the same team we all should be able to work together with out fear of rocking the boat.

    "The company is very (perhaps too) conservative, but has a strong reputation in Houston commercial real estate circles."

    Pros

    proper staffing or overstaffing contribute to a very relaxed culture, great reputation in Houston real estate circles, great benefits package

    Cons

    reactive and haphazard management, company is a follower instead of a leader in its industry, organization not structured for career advancement, organization too "siloed", investment decisions are not properly vetted

    Advice to Management

    Have the courage to lead the Wall Street analysts instead of the other way around. It's the only way WRI will regain its standing at the front of the pack among its retail REIT peers (and once again command a premium valuation as well).
