Working at Cedar Realty Trust means more than a job at a retail real estate company. It means being part of Team Cedar, an exceptionally dynamic group of people committed to working in a highly collegial and collaborative environment. Our employees are our most valuable assets. We hire best-in-class individuals to help us continue building a best-in-class company.
Our remarkable track record of success is due to a culture of everyday excellence built on a core set of values and company benefits.
We believe in the power of working together, and we achieve our greatest results by listening to and respecting the contributions of our teammates.
We strive to achieve excellence in every element of the work we do each day.
We seek consistent portfolio and corporate performance through rigorous analytics and effort.
We have a long-term employee ownership model that rewards performance and aligns our interests with our shareholders.
We carefully underwrite investment opportunities to ensure we achieve attractive returns on capital for our shareholders.
We know that our employees have other commitments outside of work. Cedar offers full-time employees a starting paid time off (PTO) balance of 19 days, which can be used for vacation, sick days, personal days or caring for a sick family member, plus at least nine paid holidays annually. We are committed to providing employees with opportunities to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Cedar offers exercise classes, relaxation events, healthy eating programs and other wellness events.
We care about the wellbeing and financial security of our employees and their families. Full time employees are eligible to enroll in Medical, Dental and Vision insurance.
We also offer company-paid life insurance as well as short and long-term disability and paid family and medical leave. Cedar offers a 401(k) retirement plan with a company match.
We want our employees to be charitable both financially and with their time. Accordingly, we offer our employees a charitable matching program that is funded by certain senior executives and board members. In addition, we organize volunteer events at local charitable organizations and encourage our employees to participate.
We are committed to developing and advancing talent internally. We offer company-paid professional training and licensing.
We care about the communities we serve. Cedar provides company-paid days to volunteer at local organizations and organizes teams to volunteer for a philanthropic cause.
We believe that having fun is an important part of teamwork. Team Cedar participates in semi-annual company-wide group outings.
