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

    Pros

    A biweekly paycheck is the only pro at this company.

    Cons

    Zero communication and vision from management. Witnessed several occasions where management used company travel expense for personal travel/lodging/meals/etc. which I believe to be highly unethical. Have had my direct supervisor on several occasions lie to me and other coworkers. Have had VP's and RM's acknowledge the company and leadership is dysfunctional but difficult for them leave because they are getting paid above market rate. Not all employees are eligible for holiday/summer early release days (was told to sneak out the backdoor so I don't hurt anyone's feelings who might not be allowed to leave early). Extreme micromanagement requiring half of the office to sign in and sign out in the lobby when leaving to use the restroom while the other half can come and go freely. Extremely stuffy corporate work environment, poor recruitment/on boarding experience, zero work life balance, zero office culture and below average benefits. The recruiter I worked with who was apparently a Manager/VP rescheduled my interviews last minute more than 5 times without any advance notice. They also explained a completely different job than what I was actually hired to perform. This was quite the surprise to discover on my own my first week. Needless to say, management has zero knowledge or understanding of workflow process and what their employees actually do or are responsible for. Poor on boarding experience and little to no communication from my manager throughout my entire time here.

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, invests in the professional growth and development of their staff, and takes great care of their properties, excellent work-life balance. Working for Related I truly felt like I was part of an A-Team of people who were goal oriented and had strong work ethic. Great company culture and positive work environment, and lots of opportunities to advance. A GEM of a Company. I would certainly come back if they buy a property in my new home state!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons.

    Pros

    Interesting and progressive projects. Nice offices.

    Cons

    Often a hostile work environment. People are under so much pressure that they will not think twice about throwing others under the bus. No leadership of administrative staff or standard practices so that they are forced to constantly reinvent the wheel and negotiate every interaction. Despite their success in doing so they are never shown respect or given opportunity to grow. HR/Recruiting is certifiable. She will reveal confidential employee information to anyone at anytime, will lie and manipulate based on her current mood about who she likes, which is based solely on whether she thinks she can control you. My boss stared constantly at my chest while I was talking to him and consistently spoke down to me. I felt like I was working in the 1950's. Stephen Ross seems like an incredibly kind person and Jeff Blau and Bruce Beal are highly intelligent, so why do they let their company be run this way? You could do so much better guys.
