    I worked at CF Real Estate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible time off- days off that I’ve never even heard of including time off for charity each month
    Growth opportunities - if you work hard you get recognized.
    Smart, innovative people who challenge you to be better- learned something new every day
    Fresh outlook to an old business
    Felt like a family

    Cons

    Not as many training opportunities as I would have liked to see
    Leadership in most departments is good but accounting could use some work
    401k program not competitive

    Advice to Management

    Some departments don’t feel as strong and positive as others. Not broken but probably a chance to elevate there with the controller. Left due to relocation but was a great experience and I highly recommend to anyone looking to grow in this business.

    Pros

    I don’t think there are any good reasons to work here.

    Cons

    Everything is a con - so many negative people - some that have been there forever, that try to sabatoge your work.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the old timers and start over with new accountants - not leasing people that are pretending to be accountants.

    I worked at CF Real Estate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and compensation.
    Good camaraderie between employees.
    Continued training with a convenient and effective conveyance.

    Cons

    Lacked structure and stability.
    Little to no support from upper management when problems arise.

    Advice to Management

    The company went through many mergers and changes during my time there which left me in the dark about the company structure and levels of hierarchy. This confusion and the constant changes left employees feeling unstable in their roles and unsure of their job security. The property I worked on was in the process of being sold just before I left, I had been totally and utterly in the dark about my future with CF as well as on the property itself. Keeping employees fully informed regardless of the outcomes instills greater confidence in the companies integrity and dedication to their employees.
