    The real estate owner and operator is known for a lighthearted corporate culture that has seen executives willing to poke fun at themselves and others at company events and celebrations. But employees say bosses here actually listen to feedback—and add that there’s a corporate emphasis on the concept of “why” when it comes to leaders explaining their decisions to their subordinates.
