I have been working at Boston Properties

Pros

- nice office space
- successful company who prides themselves at being the best at what they do
- supportive of development and promote within

Cons

micromanagers running certain departments. looking at what time you get to your desk, what time you leave for lunch, when you leave for the day, etc. not a laid back envirnoment at all. very stuffy mens club.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get some good managers in there and make sure people are excited about coming in to work everyday. it would help with the turnover.

    Pros

    The compensation is competitve with the general market. The location is spectacular with many amenities and restaurants nearby. Workload is very reasonable for financial-type firm

    Cons

    Can be overly analytical and slow with regards to personnel promotions/hiring. There tends to be a lot of energy spent for CYA instead of just resolving problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize how much of a solid staff is in place as compared to other firms. Take some time to make the workplace a little more fun.

    Pros

    Day to day contacts within company are very nice and professional. Smaller managers are reasonable but can be very different between portfolios. Great amount of time off as well as summer hours. Great place to start out in the property management field.

    Cons

    Red tape is everywhere. Much more focus on policies and procedures than going out and improving assets and retaining tenants. Very clear that it is WHO you know and not WHAT you know that will get you noticed in such a big company. If you don't toot your own horn once in awhile then no one else will. Majority of the employees have the mindset of using the company to get ahead in the field but do not plan on staying with the company for the long haul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the great talent that you already have working for you. Give props where props are due. Maybe internal audit should start looking at the managers involved with hiring and I'm not talking about HR.
