Former Employee - Associate says

"I'm sorry your experience with us was so negative. While I will try to address some of your comments here, please feel free to reach out to me directly. As you mentioned, we do conduct an anonymous employee engagement survey—and it’s worth noting that no leader or employee has access to who said what. The survey is two years old and began as a measurement to evolve the culture by capturing feedback from all levels and responding with actions tied to our company KPIs. If you feel you were reprimanded for speaking up during the survey and/or answering truthfully, again, please reach out to me directly. Our teams have been working hard to create more growth opportunities for our junior- to mid-level employees over the past three years. It's definitely a work in progress to make sure there is support for growing careers but we have had some big wins already. However, it is a marathon and there is room to improve. This is why we've begun working on programs to support this employee population better. Also, we just started working on a more formalized WFH policy—I would love to understand where the WFH incident you mention occurred. Finally, in support of creating an inclusive environment, we have zero-tolerance for inappropriate behavior! When notified, we take swift action in identifying the issues and working through them, including termination in some cases. Again, please feel free to reach out to me directly as I would be love to hear more feedback from you and sincerely appreciate your time spent with us."

"We've heard from some employees a similar sentiment in our I & D survey followed by the focus groups regarding pockets of management. As a former employee, we hope this information was shared during your exit interview as well as our I & D survey earlier this year. During our townhalls, while not rampant throughout the business, we agree this behavior exists and is unacceptable. Over the past year, leadership teams have done a lot of work to make sure this behavior leaves the organization. And, we can only make changes as our employees speak up against the issues. We're committed to focusing all employees back on what matters, our culture (talent, inclusion, engagement, and diversity). We have a strong belief that performance and hard work should be rewarded accordingly. It appears that wasn't' the case with the team you worked on, and we're sorry for that as our managers can and will do better. Thank you for the feedback."

Former Employee - Property Manager says

"Prologis has many employees who find their place at our diverse and dynamic company. We care deeply about creating an atmosphere that promotes innovative ideas and the courage to speak up, and we recognize and reward a job well done. Transparency in communication is important to us—we want people to tell us how they feel and how we can improve. Our employee engagement surveys and quarterly global Town Halls help us to understand more about what our team members want and expect from us."

"Poor culture and leadership. Constant direction changes and lack of vision. Typically doing things 70% and stopping short."

Former Employee - Administrative Staff says

"The management became destructive. After a couple of rounds of layoffs, they no longer wanted to pay the generous severance packages, but they still needed to consolidate and trim staff. So. They started writing up employees and terminating them for cause. Good employees, GOOD PEOPLE who had been there for years and had never had a single writeup for performance were now being written up, demoted and ultimately shown to the door. Bear in mind, when you terminate an employee for cause, they can't collect unemployment, and you can't use ProLogis as an employer reference, because they'll tell anyone inquiring that you were terminated for cause. It's devastating to the employee's livelihood and career. ProLogis didn't care, though--they went ahead and did it, and trashed careers for the sake of the bottom line. This wasn't one or two cases that I saw, either; I saw it happen at least seven times in the eastern region and in the corporate headquarters in a six-month period. Some of the employees who were older may not have recovered at all--it was that crushing. And I can't even begin to cover the psychological toll of going through this process after going through two rounds of layoffs and picking up the slack to cover for the employees who were laid off.. So, in economic good times, they're a great company, but if the economy sours, then you should either run or lawyer up."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Management was nice to your face but then horrible behind your back. Property Managers were acted as through the admins were grunts that were on the lower spectrum of life. Personal life was a big no no. God forbid your child was sick. Was glad to leave. I have seen a new Admin Assist. job posting for this company almost every month since I left. Apparently I'm not the only one."

says

"We are interested to know more about your experience. We strive to create a vibrant, welcoming workplace for our team members across the globe, as well as set transparent expectations for everyone. Sometimes, meetings can be many--this is true. However, meetings help us to collaborate on important work, brainstorm fresh new ideas, stay current on all matters related to our business, and learn more about each other."

Administrative Assistant says

"It used to be a nice company to work for. These days the management can be downright predatory to people at all levels within the company, but for the most part, the non-management employees get the worst treatment. This is especially prevalent in the New Jersey offices. The non-management staff have not had raises in two years, while it is an open secret that the management-level folks still receive bonuses and stock options, some so high that they match their salary. Morale is extremely low. If you're not management, then it is likely you feel like a punching bag."
