Professional Organization with Learning Opportunities
ASSISTANT PROPERTY MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CAJuly 13, 2015
Brandywine is a professionally ran organization that provided plenty of opportunities to grow and learn as an employee. Brandywine is committed to their presence within the community, especially with organizations such as BOMA.

One of the things I admire about Brandywine is their commitment to being a frontrunner in sustainability and renewable resources.
Pros
Summer Hours, Generous Holiday Schedule, Learning Opportunities
Cons
Limited opportunities for career advancement in the field

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the tenants and vendors. I was responsible for greeting the customers, answering all calls and direct them to the appropriate property manager. I worked very closely with the property managers on projects and reviewing contracts.

General maintance and upkeep of all machanical operations and systems
Senior Maintenance Technician/Chief Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bensalem, PAApril 12, 2014
Review paper work from previous day and execute tasks needed. I learned a vast amount of knowledge that I had yet to retain. Management for Brandywine are excellent people to be managed by. My fellow co-workers were good, hard working, family oriented men who where a pleasure to work along side. The hardest part of the job was the movement of very heavy equipment when I had to do so by myself. The most enjoyable part of my job was the satisfaction I received at the end of the day.

Really just a job---not much more or less.
Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAMarch 17, 2014
Tone within the Richmond office wasn't very friendly and was very back biting at times. The corporate office in Philadelphia seemed much more in tune with the times. At that office they were more professional, less good old boy, and more cosmopolitan. Company wide they did offer good online learning opportunities and were willing to pay for classes. Most of the properties Brandywine manages or owns in the Richmond area are old and not in the more desirable areas. Upper management was preoccupied with expansion in other regions and middle management was very weak and ineffective. There are many better companies out there to work for and grow a career.
Pros
access to self directed learning.
Cons
offered little in the way of challenges or advancement.

Wonderful company to work for!!! Knowledgeable, kind and patient property managers.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAOctober 23, 2013
A typical day was making sure each property manager had the information needed to complete a task. Learning how commerical realty was handled and maintained. The entrie staff was very accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. The hardest part was not being able to be hired permanently, as there were no jobs available. The most enjoyable part of the job was receiving recognition, encouragement and kindness from who I worked with and for.
Pros
seeing another side of commerical realty operations.
Cons
not being hired as a permanent employee

Corporate Accountant (Current Employee) –  Radnor, PASeptember 16, 2013
A typical day is that no one day is ever the same. Between maintaining and cultivating bank relationships, reconciling bank accounts and assisting with cash management and tax projects every day is an adventure.
