    I have been working at The Related Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is one of the most challenging jobs you'll ever love! Related has a "hit the ground running" culture (but don't worry, they'll provide the training) so be prepared to learn a lot. I've worked for several other organizations where I felt bored rather quickly; however, that's not the case here. We're always looking for ways to improve and grow so you'll be involved with new projects quite often both as an individual and in a team setting. I've also had the pleasure to see a considerable amount of individuals provided with the opportunity to advance in the ranks due to their commitment, hard work and determination. I love participating in the growth of this amazing organization!

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, because I believe every company faces this challenge: Sometimes it can be challenging to ensure the different groups are queued-in on items which require multiple department involvement - let's continue to work on communication. Team work makes the dream work!

    I have been working at The Related Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been working at Related for about a year now. It has been a completely different experience than the last company I worked at (in the best way). My favorite part about Related is that we have all of the benefits/perks of a large company while still functioning like a small/entrepreneurial company. I feel like I’m getting the best of both worlds. Leadership is fantastic and I constantly feel challenged and encouraged to collaborate with colleagues on different teams. Lastly, growth and internal movement is encouraged at Related which is so refreshing.

    Cons

    There is nothing I would change about my experience thus far!

    I have been working at The Related Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company culture. The company leaders know that their employees have lives outside of work, and they encourage everyone to have a healthy work-life balance. The people in my department are fantastic. Everyone who is currently here wants to be here, and it shows, creating a thriving office environment. There seems to be an excellent room for growth if you choose to go above and beyond. Demonstrating the ability to perform your job at an excelled level will surely get you noticed in the company and open doors for other opportunities.

    Cons

    Overall communication among different departments needs to improve

    I worked at The Related Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Was paid Yonkers rates for what they wanted

    Cons

    I am a female and the person hired after me is a male making $60k when I made $56k for the same position. Everything was an issue of budget but they found those $4000 for HIM. It's fine I'm making more now in another job.
