    I worked at Weingarten Realty full-time

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers! Hardworking, good people who have no real leader.

    Cons

    Lotus Notes, are you serious !!Salary is not competitive. Great co-workers who are understaffed, overworked and trained properly. WAY TOO conservative!! This is not the Nixxon error!

    Advice to Management

    This is not the Nixxon error! Pay your hard working staff more. They don't need low value stock as a Christmas bonus, they need decent pay-raises! Change management styles and hold them accountable. Get rid of Lotus Notes - its a dinosaur. Spend the money on training!

    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.
