    I have been working at Kimco Realty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic, innovative, humble. Land of opportunity. When you work for Kimco, there really are no limits. If you have a work ethic and want to learn, you can learn any aspect of commercial real estate that you have an interest in. Every year something new and innovative is happening and you have a chance to be a part of it. Generous time off, opportunities to volunteer, team building events, education reimbursement, scholarships for children of employees-- they really care about retaining employees.

    Cons

    It is what you make of it. If you truly aren't happy here, you can make a change and still find a niche that motivates you - within Kimco. It really is an organization that wants you to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on truckin'. Continue to identify internal talent and listen to ideas and together we will all go far.

    "Bad Manager"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Kimco Realty full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, generous PTO, stock payout, and strong c-executives.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. Regional, internal promotions are not based on hard work or dedication, but based on who you are friends with.

    Advice to Management

    Bad regional manager who micromanages, sets unrealistic deadlines, and fails to be a leader. There is no need to have staff members get you coffee or order/deliver you lunch; using the IM "tag" feature as a time card; and not allowing ANY personal phone calls (cell phone) during business hours. Environment is hostile, and the reason for the consistent turnover.

    I have been working at Kimco Realty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is great to work for. They have the right idea for its employees but not having the right management staff discredits this company.

    Cons

    Management choice is poor as they go by favortism. The managers they've chosen are loud, rude and inconsiderate. It's their way or no way. Management gossips about employees business to one another. Some managers are micro managers and are very controlling.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate of your employees, their personal business and job success instead of your personal egos and gains.

    Company does not wait for you to accrue your PTO, you can use prior to YE.

    A great deal of paperwork to muddle through on day to day basis. This effects productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Micro managing does not allow your employees to flourish. Cannot be creative, processes are set in place.

    Pros

    Quarterly skill path classes, teams outings, generous PTO and sick days.

    Cons

    Lack of skilled management, corporate politics, outsourcing our jobs to India, No chance to promote, although undeserving people get promoted to management without required to take management skill courses. Lots and Lots of favortism.

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative of those doing the work instead of those passing the work off as their own. QUIT OUTSOURCING!

    Pros

    Great place to learn real estate . Great staff. Staff is family oriented. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management sucks. You have to practically kiss butt and watch other lips in the meantime. They use to have a great management staff until they laid them off and replaced them. Go figure. The older management staff helped promote and gave opportunity for advancement. The current management team sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your colleague's behind and notice the hardworking employees and give them a chance to promote. Roll up your sleeves and help with work over flow and stop setting deadlines and punishing employees that are OVERWORKED by your demands.

    Cons

    miscommunication within departments; maternity leave is not what it used to be.

    Pros

    Regional Directors and Vice Presidents are great people to work with. Company benefits are good although every year they give it a hair cut.

    Cons

    Accounting software CTI is extremely old, you'll never use this version of Yardi anywhere else in your career. CFO's mantra of having his "All-Stars" and "Blockers and Tacklers" in his staff creates a horrible unprofessional environment. Regional office staff tries to avoid corporate accounting managers at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Being blinded by the focus of cutting payroll and other G&A costs has created a horrible corporate work environment. HR works against its own employees hiding behind wasted "perks" such as Dale Carnegie courses and weight loss programs that sees employees walk circles around the parking lot. They are also blind to the unprofessional managers that create bad blood among employees. There is a blaring cancer within the organization that needs to be addressed otherwise employee morale will continue to be low.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, 401(k) match, generous PTO, Solid mentors, great working environment with friendly group environment. Very family friendly.

    I worked at Kimco and I had a great working experience overall! Did accounting & analysis for various mall properties.

    I've been told that your experience at Kimco highly depends on what group and bosses you end up with, so do your homework before applying, if you can.

    Cons

    Repetitive workload, deadline oriented, Hard to earn advancement (People tend to stay in the same roles for years).

    Sometimes tough to see eye to eye with management.
