    I have been working at Dream Unlimited full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We have a great team in our office! Wonderful support from the Head Office with training, looking to always grow the company and there is the option to voice your opinion and give things a try. Excellent salary (especially for where our office is located) and great Benefits.

    Cons

    Our office is a smaller team and there isn't much room to move up.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see better tools as an administrator. For example, I would like to send my tenant a statement of their account and the only option to print from our program is confusing and lists many different charges. There has been improvements in this part of the job, however I think there is lots of room to grow.

    I have been working at Dream Unlimited full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Innovative, dynamic, young, energetic. Wholistic approach to land development with land holdings in western Canada that can service a 30+ development pipeline. Always thinking of new ways to service the customer and make their everyday easier and more enjoyable. Elevating the shopping, living, and commuting experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes the pace of change is so quick that people get left behind. If you aren't adding value, you are viewed as a liability. Some jobs require consistency, but consistency isn't innovative and dynamic - so regrettably this means the company will perceive and eliminate redundancy.

    Advice to Management

    360 reviews should be mandatory in all organizations

    Pros

    Great company culture & work environment. Whether at project offices or the head office, colleagues are genuinely friendly, positive and helpful.

    Simply, Dream is a company with big dreams (vision & goals) and relies on empowering it employees to achieve them.

    Cons

    There is really none!

    Truly it depends on your personality and work style....For example, Dream does not limit your focus to one track and instead exposes you to many different aspects of the company and its sub businesses that you can reach out to within the scope of your job. I love that!
    Others might prefer to be focused on just one track with fixed defined processes - in my prespective those kind of jobs will be taken over by AI!

    Pros

    Dream is a very engaging workplace full of young, smart, motivated and hard-working yet congenial and fun people who collaborate very well across groups and disciplines towards common goals among a wide array of exciting projects & initiatives. Everyone has the opportunity to be seen, heard and contribute on everything, as Dream has a very lean, flat and meritocratic organizational structure with unparalleled access to senior management.

    Cons

    As in any lean organization with a variety of external stakeholders and large projects with inherent risks, day-to-day work life can be a grind at times and extended hours are not uncommon. However, these periodic grinds are a normal part of the industry; all onboarding materials & discussions make this clear when hired, teammates & colleagues support one another and pick up the slack when necessary, and we are well-compensated & cared-for as employees. These grinds are also indicative of the opportunities for advancement and development that make Dream a great place to build a career.
