    Current Employee - Property Management Coordinator in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Boston Properties full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, opportunity to promote within the company.

    Cons

    Seems to be a minimum of 2.5 years on average before you are able to promote. When I first interviewed I was told that BP really likes to hire from within but quickly learned that many assistant property manager and property manager positions end up being filled from outside the company. Another con is that I feel it is a very hierarchal company where you feel like you are expected to walk on eggshells and act/dress a certain way in front of certain higher-ups. I guess I am not used to that from other companies I have worked for in the past.

    Company is enthusiastic about the work. There is a lot of room to grow at the company learning may different skills beyond what you expected to learn

    Pros

    Great company, great people. Lots of interesting deals.

    Very structured. Senior Management tends to get too into the weeds and is involved in all levels of decision making.

    I worked at Boston Properties full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I think the best reason to work here is the exposure to large scale projects and investments. The people are bright and the history of the company's leadership had been good.

    Cons

    There can be a little complacency driven by the tenure of senior employees and the relatively static nature of the business. Those seeking an entrepreneurial environment will find themselves frustrated by the rigid nature of a a large public real estate company
