One employee shared her experienes,"Culture is cut throat, unwavering in its desire to meet profits, and doesn't really care about its people. I've seen new hires quit on their first day, others having full-on yelling arguments in the hallway, and other unprofessional instances only to see there are no consequences to your actions if you know someone high enough in the food chain. Human resources had ethical challenges as well as lack of benefits, bad work environment, and no employment empowerment."
Former Employee - Finance says"You should be fine as long as you're not in Washington DC Division. The manager is totally disrespectful and very abusive plus she has a few harassment cases reported to the HR... and they're not doing anything about it.."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"NO real bonus, limited increase in salary. Most everyone who works in a decent role got the job due to who they are married to or who is in their family. It is a very "Mad Men" type of workplace. Have seen coffee and lunch served by their "girls" , "secretaries" and "admins"."

Current Employee - Assistant Property Manager says"The company doesn't really seem to have a grasp on technology or processes"
Former Employee - Senior Property Financial Analyst says"Communication is an area that can be improved on in a major way. As well, departments work in silos, which can be very frustrating. Invariably, it often took a lot of time to get concrete information from other departments or associates. Many people just didn’t have the information or didn’t know whom to ask. This can be detrimental as some people specialize in blindly following standard operating procedures. Most in the real world can speak to the concept of acquiring critical thinking skills and being successful in that endeavor. Unfortunately, the organization is entrenched in operating in a particular fashion that requires a lot of leadership and muscle to unravel."

This company seemed ok, but the Administration department was cut throat and lots of back biting in the department. The office manager was rude and unwelcoming. The two other women I would have worked with should I have stayed long term spent their time trying to undermine and sabotage me as a new co-worker for petty issues. Had I been hired for any other department but that one I think it would have been a great job, unfortunately I did not see being promoted or advancing in that role.Beautiful offices, professional environment, catered lunches, decent paySabotaging co-workers, rude, mean office manager"
