    I have been working at Glimcher Realty full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The property level can give you a lot of experience and flexibility.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth unless you are willing to relocate, are a man, or know somebody high up in the management. Very few employees are happy for the long term as many are passed up for promotions. There is little loyalty to the employees and their tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees should be recognized more both with fair compensation, accolades, job flexibility, and internal promotions.

    I worked at Glimcher Realty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work - life balance / generous vacations.

    Cons

    Bullying and unprofessional behavior by Management and Colleagues. Managers foster an environment of clicks within department and lack of teamwork.

    Their touted "culture" is a joke. "Collaborative" and "open" are words that sound good but the reality is miserably off base.

    HR is corrupt. In order to be valuable HR needs to do more than consistently and mindlessly support the higher level employee on any issue. Associates should be able to go to HR with valid concerns. If I had the energy and money and didn’t already have a new job, I would be contacting a labor law attorney.

    Managers do not have level of knowledge and skill which should be required for their positions. When bad decisions cause problems, lower level employees get blamed. Management is removed from the competence and level of skill required to produce deliverables relative to our department and industry. Manager will not listen to input – has their own “agenda”.

    I have put 110% into this job with no sense of accomplishment, appreciation, or professional growth in return. Internal roadblocks to efforts for improvement on both the corporate and property level. Manager demands respect but does not offer the same in return to members of team. Manager’s concern is “what can you do for me”? Not “what can you do for this company”?

    I very much support and believe in the purpose of this company and the work that they do. When I leave here I will not be leaving the company I will be leaving because of the lack of positive role models in senior leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weak managers continue to stay in their position. Senior management does not like confrontation so will continue to choose to ignore issues instead of addressing.

    I have been working at Glimcher Realty full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A somewhat set schedule, nice office staff, employees are sociable, you feel very welcomed when you start, online timekeeping, paid time off offered upon employment.

    Cons

    The pay is very low compared to the expectations set for employees. Employees show up or leave for their shift when it is convenient for them with no discipline. Management is too busy trying to remind everyone of their title that they are oblivious to the problems there. Employee morale is crazy low if you're not part of the admin staff. Turnover is rediculous. I know an employee who has been there for 4 years and has only had a $.20 bump in pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher pay = better employees. Talk to employees, don't yell. Invest in keeping employees not replacing them

    Current Employee - Security Officer in Columbus, OH

    I have been working at Glimcher Realty full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get to interact with people, get experience in retail security

    Cons

    Mall and corporate management does not care about the security staff

    Security staff is always the scapegoat for everything (spills not cleaned up, lights out, compactors not working, etc)

    Mall does not properly train officers

    Hires anyone with a heartbeat

    Low salaries despite us doing a study showing how the other malls paid more (HR dismissed the study)

    Their "anonymous" harassment line doesnt work as HR came back and blamed security

    Uniforms are old and dirty/stained. Hat's are messed up. Not very professional

    Vehicles are horrible and "rolling billboards" with sponsorship on the sides.

    Promotions mostly based on the "buddy" system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start taking the customers as well as the employees safety more seriously. Train the officers better. Raise the wages. Stop cheaping out on security/safety. Treat your staff better. Got to love how non of the corporate managers have experience as Security Officers, yet dictate policy.

    Pros

    profitable business. as a REIT, they have figured out how to build, lease and manage shopping centers.

    Cons

    culture is a joke........only a certain age and sex are tolerated. if one is not of a certain youthful age and is not of a certain sex, there is no future at this company. what they say publically and what they do privately are greatly at odds.

    I have been working at Glimcher Realty

    Pros

    Okay pay considering the nature of the work, however, be prepared to deal with a lot of jerks, which is the nature of the work, but also coworkers tend to be very abusive and insensitive. Tremendous amount of favoritism in terms of promotion and scheduling.

    Cons

    See above. Should be enough information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set your personal differences aside and be as objective as possible in assessing and promoting key talent. Also, upper management tends to be a bit bi-polar. Take care of that before it hits the fan!

    I have been working at Glimcher Realty full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Hire in salary is decent.

    Cons

    Salary is good when you first start and then when it is time for raises they are very low even with a great review. Management is to concerned about college degrees when you try for a promotion. They fail to see the many years you have been with them and how strong your background is with the company. Some of the management fails to take care of the problem employees because they have been threatened with law suits. Management staf is to young and immature to hold their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up! Act your age!! Look at what your employees have to offer before seeking outside the company. Review with your staff and/or team to see what is needed or what their concerns maybe. Have a development plan and a better training program. The HR staff needs restructured. They are snooty and worried more about themselves than their employees.

    I have been working at Glimcher Realty full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting work (shopping mall development), nice coworkers, some management support relating to work and employment looks good on the resume.

    Cons

    Salary is below average, offer stock options with no intent of honoring them. GRT is quick to lay off employees without any warnings. Senior management does not believe in win-win senarios (every dollar they give you is a dollar coming out of their pockets).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say, say what you mean: I lost 30k in stock options because our team was laid off for company's financial problems (not performance) and a "temination" clause in my options cancelled my stock options. Why offer them if you have no intent of honoring them? It could have helped my kids' college tuition. I recommend anybody thinking about employment to get everything in writing and have your attorney review all the weasel clauses. If they are unwilling to accept your terms, don't take the job.

    I worked at Glimcher Realty part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Willing to be as flexible as they can with Employees schedules
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Management Team very unprofessional
    They speak down to other Employees
    Don't keep track of what you tell them re; Days requested off
    Keep Employees out of the Loop w/changes that should be communicated
    Management Leader's bad temper led to screaming/temper tantrums in front of Customers! Very unnecessary! Unprofessional!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all Employees equally.
    Stop talking down to your staff.
    Keep staff informed of changes.
    If you are upset about something, handle it privately! Don't throw a tantrum in front of customers/employees!
    Just because you are in Management, don't have a bad attitude towards those below you.
    Instead of writing notes and just laying them on a desk for all employees, maybe communicate with them weekly or bi-weekly if something needs improved. Letter's can come across as rude.
    When one person does something wrong, don't blame it on all the employees! Talk to the person who messed up.
