I worked at Forest City full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Family owned company. Loved working downtown on Public Square.

Cons

I worked within IT and it seemed that all the men got promoted and were able to go to conferences to further their knowledge while the women were held back.

There was also lots of pressure to give money to the United Way. You would get hate emails if you didn't participate. The office suite that I was in at the time was very outdated and old.

You also have to pay approx $80 / month for parking and have to walk awhile to get to your office.

Advice to Management

Be sure to give everyone the opportunities for advancement and career development. More discounts on the parking.

    I worked at Forest City part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Driving the kids on the train was a WONDERFUL experience! They all became adopted grandchildren for me and I always looked forward to going to work. The repeat passengers were extra special!

    Cons

    My score would not have been as high if based on management alone. Some management personnel were very helpful and caring, but the mall manager was an ass. There's no other way to say it. When he was there, everything was his way or the highway. Very much a control freak!

    Advice to Management

    Fire the mall manager and promote the assistant to his position. He knows how to relate to customers, clients and employees!


  2. "In desperate need of Management training 101. This company lacks a good leader."
