    Excellent Benefits, company has summer and winter parties. Start with 3 weeks vacation. 4 after 5 years bit no more after 5.

    No flexibility, micro management at the max, a culture of finger pointing. You are to work extended hours but if you are in need to leave 30 minutes early it becomes a big issue

    I worked at First Capital Realty (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Corporate office used to have lunches delivered Mondays and Fridays but now just once a month. In a busy environment, it was good to catch up with colleagues in other depts during these lunches. Other pros, fully Canadian- FCR owns and operates all their properties (not third party).

    Cons

    Leadership isn't transparent, looks out for themselves and sees everyone as disposable. Provides lip service to employee population and does not walk the talk. Person running the show is young, inexperienced, judgemental and arrogant - the rest are puppets.

    Still in contact with people in the company and moral is low. Some are looking to jump ship but job market is tough and hence are waiting to receive a package - if they are lucky.

    Also FCR is in bed with troubled URBANCORP but keeping their distance to not be associated or get caught in bad media.

    Advice to Management

    Board needs to look closely at the leadership and why Pres/CEO hired buddy as COO.

    I worked at First Capital Realty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fair salary bottom end of range. Free lunch on Mondays and Fridays. Benefits are fair.

    Cons

    Will work you to death literally. Throwing people under the bus openly in meetings happened frequently. Must get used to doing the work of three people and getting paid like one person.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to hire enough employees to do the job. Avoid the high turnover and employee burnout. Then again it seems to have worked over the years - so who am I to say your doing a bad job.
