    "The current PFA management team (excluding Michelle Shaver) needs to be replaced"

      I have been working at Kimco Realty full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Direct managers genuinely care about the employees and are fantastic to work with. The company is very flexible with employee work schedules and offers generous PTO/sick time packages. Year-end bonuses are around 10% of annual salary plus every February employees are given a stock option payout of several thousand dollars. Kimco offers tuition reimbursement up to $6K annually and matches 401k contributions up to 5%. Insurance...

      Cons

      Most (if not all) managers above one's direct manager are very difficult to work underneath. Many tend to micromanage and want to have their hands in every minute detail, yet when something important is needed from them, they either do not respond or it takes weeks/months to get an answer that should have taken 10 minutes. Upper management makes rash decisions about employees...

      Advice to Management

      Pay attention to the employees who are leaving. You are losing good employees with experience and knowledge that cannot be easily replaced. These employees are being replaced with far less capable people lacking the capacity to perform anything beyond simple tasks. If Kimco ever wants to bring certain responsibilities back in-house, it will have a very difficult time with the new staff it has in place. Too many seasoned...

      Pros

      Compensation is good and room to work independently. The brand recognition of the company helps working with external stakeholders.

      Cons

      Political fighting in upper management and nepotism. The company feels like a family business despite being listed on NYSE.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on acquiring new talent should be the highest priority. The company talent has either been with the company way too long or un-competitive as compared to other firms.

      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.

      Pros

      Great benefits package and bagels on Friday morning.

      Cons

      The department was micromanaged and moral was low. They are hiring people with little to no experience to run large portfolios thus putting a strain on the entire department. You would think a large publically traded company would hire people that have many years of experience to manage their assets and mentor property management assistants. Upper management uses the support...
