    Pros

    Douglas Emmett has a long-standing culture of developing and supporting its employees. We have many employees who have started out at entry level positions and are now in leadership positions. We also have a lot of employees who have worked for the company for over 15 years. That alone speaks volumes of what kind of company we have. This company values longevity and invests in competent and hard working employees. They offer stability and plenty of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    This company has grown so fast that it is hard to keep track of new employees.

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Best overall team I have worked with so far. Very welcoming and professional. A very calm environment, which is always welcomed.

    Cons

    Benefits are way to expensive, with the hourly pay that you get, there is just no way to afford benefits. This is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, management is great. Wouldn't change a thing.

    Pros

    Big company, multiple locations, growth within, amazing work experience opportunity, ok benefits, flexible, corporate staff is really friendly, and is a great starting point if you are looking into making real estate you career.

    Cons

    Cons are really up to the individual, if you come in to this company thinking you can work 50% of the time and play the other 50% than don't expect to get promoted or a raised. The turn over is big because there are a lot of companies out there paying more but employees end up coming back all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified personnel and offer more competitive salaries. Spend more time and money training people.

  9. Great Experience and Business Culture for Growth.
