I have been working at Forest City Enterprises full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Decent medical benefits. Though they do take away more and more every year. I like my team mates as well as my immediate boss and I really love the work I do and my contributions to the people I manage.

Cons

Been in IT for many years. No matter how hard you work, how much you contribute combined with a great attitude, if you are not part of the club, you will be passed by on promotions, bonuses and acknowledgements. Management will have every excuse ready when you inquire why. However, if you are in the club, you can be lazy, non communicative, unaccountable, unqualified and in some cases even disrespectful. You will most likely even get a promotion. Management will preach about how we need to come together as a team but then allow the departmental silos to carry on. And HR is just as responsible for the morale decline by knowing this exists and never doing anything about it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house, it's time for a major leadership change.

    I worked at Forest City Enterprises full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Senior management is great and then it goes downhill from there. Wonderful facade in reputation in the industry only.

    Cons

    The middle level management is awful, paranoid and prefer gossip over actual work. Prefer to do the minimum and lack challenging themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many people have worked there for 20+ years doing the same job and have no interest in learning or doing something else within the firm. Hire younger staff to make way for the mass amount of employees who will be retiring within the next 10 years.

    I worked at Forest City Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    One of the "best" companies to work for, if you want to grow and learn from within. Very good company when it comes to a good wage.

    Cons

    Corporate Consolidation(s) come without notice. For a company that has skilled individuals that can forecast the future in terms of goals, they are lax in this area.
