    Pros

    The work environment will vary from building to building, from what has been told to me my building is one of the smoothest running ones because the staff is pretty awesome. My time here has been short but so far I enjoy coming to work everyday because the day runs so smoothly you don't even feel the time fly by. Every one that I have encountered is usually very happy to be where they are at ( in my building) so it makes the work day easy because no body complains about the job. You must be a self-starter do not come into the company and expect to have your hand held while you learn things it definitely will not go that way.

    Cons

    If you live far from the coast (Santa Monica area) and don't like to drive this is not for you because I live border line Downtown LA and commute is about 1 hour in the morning and about 1.5 in the evening. The benefits are pretty pricey compared to what salary is being offered and the plans offered don't allow for much flexibility for your pocket. I don't like to hear others opinions or experiences with other property managers because I don't want my own view to become skewed however, it seems that I happened to fall in with a great PM as there are very surprising stories with others that can promote the fear of actually getting moved to a building where one of those is at.

    Advice to Management

    Look into better benefit packages with different carriers.

    Pros

    Douglas Emmett has a long-standing culture of developing and supporting its employees. We have many employees who have started out at entry level positions and are now in leadership positions. We also have a lot of employees who have worked for the company for over 15 years. That alone speaks volumes of what kind of company we have. This company values longevity and invests in competent and hard working employees. They offer stability and plenty of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    This company has grown so fast that it is hard to keep track of new employees.

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Best overall team I have worked with so far. Very welcoming and professional. A very calm environment, which is always welcomed.

    Cons

    Benefits are way to expensive, with the hourly pay that you get, there is just no way to afford benefits. This is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, management is great. Wouldn't change a thing.
