    I have been working at Oxford Properties Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people, amazing benefits plan, wellness allowance ($500 annually), education assistance

    Cons

    Organizational structure becoming more top-heavy with executives since new leadership began Succession planning makes it impossible to move up if you're not part of the plan

    Advice to Management

    Go back to a simple organizational structure, stop hiring more executives and invest those funds in employee career development

    Pros

    Incredible reputation in the industry. Great benefits. World-class talent and assets. Global exposure. Work hard play hard. Awesome people.

    Cons

    Old-fashioned culture, which has certainly evolved (in a positive way) over the last few years. May tend to value external experience more than internal experience. Have a hard time moving high-performing people around in the organization.

    The people they hire are great and well educated.

    Management doesn't always treat their staff nicely. They do not promote from within. Always will hire external.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Give them second chances. Promote internally. Pay them for the amount of work they really do to make you look good.
