work life balance but impossible to have a promotion
Property Accountant (Former Employee) – Downtown Toronto – 8 July 2018
The company has a good process and procedure and people are nice but impossible to have a promotion. CEO create a good culture of the firm which everyone respect each other. If you are looking for a job but not looking for advancement, this is a place for you to work.
Strong, hard-working, detail-focused team work in an open office setting
REIT Administrative Assistant (Intern) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 April 2018
Gained familiarity with JDE Edwards software, lease documentation and storage, as well as general financial administration and organization. Workplace culture was open-spaced, collaborative and friendly, time-focused, capable and positive. Lots of sitting, typing, filing and labelling, but with a great time and wonderful environment! A real privilege to work for DREAM Co.!
On contract, loving it. Wish they had full time permanent position.
PROPERTY ACCOUNTANT (Current Employee) – Toronto – 8 March 2018
Great management team in accounting, excellent corporate culture. Would love to be hired for a full time position in this company. Corporate culture has vastly improved since last time I was at this company formerly known as Dundee Realty.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 February 2018
If you need a job, and can't find anything else, this is the place for you.
Very biased company. If you are a favourite employee, you get the world handed to you and roles that you are not qualified for. Which is great as they train you, but do not expect to make it to this category.
Two CEO's to run five separate public companies, one is really in charge as the major shareholder in everything.
Very low pay for the hours worked. As they have eliminated staff, the jobs just pile onto those left. The staff left are tired and unappreciated, and looking for another job.
The best I can do besides amazing coworkers in the same boat....free soda and coffee?
Assistant Administrator (Current Employee) – Toronto – 16 January 2018
People with under 3 years experience are being promoted to Property Manager Senior Management make bad decisions Low Pay and simplistic benefits Managers do not motivate employees People with very little accounting and finance experience are managing budgets The VP of property management who manages huge budgets had to go back to school for an Introduction to Accounting Course ...enough said right there
Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 March 2017
The company stresses how it values the employees and preaches a culture where employees are supported and empowered. However, the senior executive team does not lead by example and will talk down to the employees as a habit. It is unfortunate as the company could show more appreciation and should make employees feel valued. Often times, 80% of the employees work long hours but no recognition is given or at the very least, a show of appreciation.
Executive leaders show no appreciation to good employees
Corporate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 July 2016
It was a great place to work in terms of team was very supportive, friendly and took time to train you and get to know you. The company had a lot of fun company events as well, Only downside to company would say is management was slow to make changes with rapidly growing company and didn't offer growth/developmental opportunities to staff (lack of promotion opportunities) and felt some departments were cliquey.
Company events, people, culture
Cliquey, politics and lack of growth opportunities for internal staff
Administrator (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 May 2016
I am so happy I finally found a great company to work for, especially after making a career change into Real Estate. I quickly felt at home and continue to get so much support from coworkers and management. They help with career advancement and continuing education. Will be here for years to come!
Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 April 2016
A typical at work is get to meet valued tenants/clients/ and get their requests completed as soon as possible. Learned a lot about budgeting. Management - lots of power struggle within and supervisors are so inexperienced and it's really hard for everyone to do their job and this is because of cutbacks in everything ie. overtime, service vehicles etc. The hardest part of the job is trying to deal with these situation everyday. Not really enjoying in my job right now and I think I need a fresh start.
Really great experience in a highly professional work environment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 February 2016
This job provided me with ongoing professional experience in the administrative field. The workplace is full of highly motivated and well educated individuals who know the real estate industry from the inside out, and it was a pleasure to work with them all.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 January 2016
Typical day at work would be me coming in and checking my email and seeing what I have scheduled for the day. Then I would attend my meetings and make any changes to any Project Schedule and or plans that I have. Management can be a little misguiding at times because I was pulled in all sorts of directions and wasn't sure which way to go. My Co-workers were great and extremely supportive and helpful with anything that I needed. The hardest part of the job was to have more structure in my projects because it was a very laid-back organization whose PMO was growing.
