The Federal Principles:
Who we are, what we stand for, and how we act.

Be outstanding

We strive to be best-in-class in what we do and how we do it. We embrace change quickly and decisively, and approach every challenge with a determination to succeed. We set the bar high. 

Make us proud

We’re committed to always doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. Trustworthiness, fairness and respect lead to work we can be proud of. We value diversity and embrace what makes us each unique.

Own it

We do what we say we’re going to do. We take ownership for the quality of our individual work but also take pride in what we deliver as a team. We are accountable to our partners and expect the same in return.

Be progressive

Innovation is at the heart of our business. We’re constantly challenging the norm and know that if we are not changing, evolving and improving—we’re falling behind. We encourage creativity, taking smart risks, and learning from setbacks.


Not your average benefits, because we’re not an average workplace.

From’s Best Places to Work in CRE to The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces list, we are consistently recognized for our employee benefit programsall designed with you in mind.

Health & Wellness

At Federal, you can be active and do good at the same time. Our “Step up with Federal” program encourages employees to meet their fitness goals through individual and team challenges. Once you reach your goal, we make a donation to a local charity. Together, we are stepping up to health and fitness, and supporting our community.

Growth & Development

Through our Learn@Federal platform, employees have access to a variety of different training courses, books, book summaries and audio books covering a myriad of different business and soft skills training subjects. Federal provides reimbursement for tuition and professional licensures.

Compensation & Benefits

We provide competitive pay and benefits including health, dental, vision, short and long-term disability, life insurance and 401(k) retirement program, as well as a generous paid time off program that includes vacation, sick and personal leave. Health Coverage Information →

Community Involvement

Giving back to the community is an integral part of who we are and what we do at Federal. Whether it’s through programs at our properties or charitable endeavors and volunteer opportunities that also serve as team building exercises for our employees—there are ample ways to give back.

Rewards & Recognition

Our quarterly recognition program rewards innovative thought with the “Find a Better Way Award.” It can be simple; it might be different; it could solve a problem or improve a process—these are the folks with a brilliant idea. Spot bonus awards are given to employees for stellar performance, going above and beyond, and living by The Federal Principles. 

Federal Perks

Sometimes it’s the simple things that improve our outlook on work. Free breakfast on Wednesdays, a casual dress code, the option to work from home, social events, living in one of our residential projects at a discounted rate, or exclusive discounts with many retail tenants—at Federal, we foster an environment that allows our people to succeed while balancing work and life.

    “If you want a challenge, if you want your every day to be different, if you want to stretch your talents—this is the place to do it.”
