I have been working at Forest City full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The work environment at forest city is one of strong team cooperation and utilization, if you are not a team player this is no the place for you. Some notable pro's are great benefits, employer matching 401K, excellent team environment, steady work schedule, flextime, amazing company events and free snacks at the office.

Cons

no overtime allowed, work can seem overwhelming at times due to having to clock out at 5pm (good and bad).

Advice to Management

Be more consistent with the information given out to the employees and be clearer in the explanations and instructions given for changes. I think that making Veterans Day a holiday would be a good PR for the company due to the high military exposure within housing communities; it will show that FCR cares about its veterans & military personnel and celebrates them with the rest of the country.
