Great salary and benefits, but static roles with no future
Developer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 May 2019
The good - high salary, excellent bonus, company shutdown over the holidays, RRSP matching (you pay 6% and they will pay 9%!!), private cubicles, extremely quiet office, perks aplenty including free food 2 or three times a week (salmon filets and wild rice, not leftover pizza lol)

The bad - so many long time staff who have not been trained in doing anything else for decades that have become institutionalized into not wanting to rock the boat with new ideas. IT department prefers to buy a solution rather than build one. When it does build one, it must be developed quickly and matching the 15 year old technology of other in-house apps. Mgmt is sold new systems by salesmen and then tells staff to make it fit with their other systems.
Pros
free lunches from very fine restaurants, 17% bonus, 9% RRSP match
Cons
no company direction, mgmt prefers status quo, many lifers here doing the same job because $ is so lucrative

Company has no vision and what management
Building Operator (Former Employee) –  Fairview, ON1 February 2019
Worked for this company twice, first experience was great. Managers actually managed you could go to your supervisors for technical advise and would get help also managers would do there best to help there tenants. My second was so bad that it made me never want to work in the operations department of any mall ever again. And when you try to reinvent the wheel for them you'll find out there good with there wheel being broken. IF you ever go to work at FAIRVIEW MALL my suggestion is RUN it might ruin you from wanting to ever work in the operation industry ever again.
Pros
Don't work for the company anymore
Cons
Horrible Management

Most coworkers are great, but management is poor
Guest Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON10 December 2018
Most of my coworkers were absolutely great to work with. Management was completely hit or miss. Was usually given one answer, but when brought up work safety legislation or industry standards, answers changed. Probably trying to take advantage of people who don't educate themselves about work safety issues. Training said one thing, management said another.
Pros
Cute benefits like free food, work parties, rewards programs, the great majority of my coworkers were fantastic and supportive people
Cons
No real benefits like health or dental, we were usually over or understaffed, company maintained taking data on amount of customer interactions was a waste of time, unsupportive management

Good company to build experience
Assistant Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 September 2018
Friendly people to work with and a good area to build experience. Sometimes it's easy to climb the latter and other times not so much. At the end of the day it's a fairly good company.

Really good company to work for
Maintenance/Operator (Current Employee) –  Fairview, AB7 August 2018
This is a really good company to work for, the benefits are great and pay is not bad either.
One of the only cons is it is becoming a really corporate type of workplace as opposed to a smaller company feel it used to have.
Pros
benefits
Cons
location

Good Benefit and salary but people still leaving
Part-time employee (Former Employee) –  Ontario4 July 2018
19% turn over rate. Almost Everyone that work at my department hate their job. The schedule is bad and the the training is the worst part for me: They don't offer written instruction and so there's no way to check that are you doing your job properly.
Pros
benefits, above average pay
Cons
long hours, bad training

Mall Security
Security and Life Safety Officer, Part-time (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 November 2017
Good Job at the time, appears management has all changed since I left. Changes for the best. Standard mall security, walking the halls, watching for bad people and arresting thieves.

Corporate Politics
Marketing Co-ordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 October 2017
They pay well but staff are generally puppets who do what head office tells them to do. Little creativity, lots of policies And corporate politics. They hire you to work at one property then force you to move and work at other properties. If you don't like it you can leave.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Long hours and lots of politics

Great company for right position
Category Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 June 2017
Work environment and overall company culture is great. I was unlucky to have a manager who saw competition in me and let me go 2 weeks before he was let go.
I am just concerned about the future in retail overall and profitability of the large retail property managers like CF.
Pros
Good benfeits, good overall culture
Cons
Careless in recruiting
