    I have been working at Kite Realty full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very personable, helpful and kind. The company provides outstanding benefits and generous compensation. The give-back to the community is amazing and employee participation is encouraged, including paid time from work to volunteer. Just amazing! High expectations for you to do your best, but also very supportive to get you there. Best place to work.

    Cons

    None that I've found as of yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. It's an amazing experience and the caring and hard work shows.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kite Realty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Non Executive employee's are personable.

    Cons

    Increases and bonuses based on job title not merit. You can work hard and give 100%, if you're an admin, you won't be rewarded similarly to a mediocre "higher up" Female's won't be rewarded same as males. Very Good Old Boy culture. If you are a female, make sure you want to stay where you hired in, HR will make sure you won't move up.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond title and gender. Base raises and bonuses on MERIT.

    I worked at Kite Realty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company preaches that they want you to stay and grow but never provide any opportunities to do so. Better come inwith the position you want. No potential to further education No opportunity to explore other departments

    Cons

    Senior management. They are so far removed and have no idea what HR is doing to run the company into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. There's a reason everyone leaves.
