    Pros

    Amazing to work for. I only left because I wanted to move up and no positions were open at the time.

    Cons

    Corporate direction felt distant at times from Indiana. More attempts to make the company feel connected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing honestly, you're moving things in the right direction.

    Pros

    It's a job... A place to work. 40 hours, go home, start over.

    Cons

    Management and supervisors promote a negative, derogatory and, cutthroat environment by pitting yes men employees against other employees instead of promoting a positive and proactive team venture. Safety training is not offered by Simon and if questioned, you are isolated from co workers and the negative comments from the Yes employees become visible. Tattleing on coworkers is encouraged by promises of compensation, and it shows through those who are the unqualified employees making large wages.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should take a good long deep look at these people. Some of these people have been here Way too many years. Corporate should send them to some of their other properties. Their lack of qualifications will stand out immediately. I doubt anyone at other properties will cover up for them like it's being done here.


  7. I have been working at Simon Property Group

    Pros

    If you are willing to work you can grow quickly in the company, but you have to be willing to move/relocate.

    Cons

    Challenging to max out bonus opportunities as there are many things that go into the annual calculation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are with the HR department!
     Need to have HR reps be proactive with staff rather than reactive. Reps should reach out to employees occasionally to discuss things such as career growth, employee/individual challenges, etc.

    Pros

    Promotions, benefits, nice environment, MOST of the staff was very nice. Every office has a bad apple.

    Cons

    If you get the wrong mentor it can be an unpleasant experience as it was in my case. Nothing to do with the company but just the person that was suppose to "mentor me" She was not ready or mature enough to handle interns.

    Advice to Management

    Just to make sure that the right person is in charge of interns.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great relationship with the tenants, and a wonderful upper management. As long as I am able to find out what was going on each day, I have had no problem figuring things out.

    Cons

    I wouldn't necessarily say that there are many cons, as I can see why the company do what they do, but oftentimes you can be caught between doing the right thing and following the book by the rules, which can cause misunderstandings amongst management.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to have Guest Services Representatives be able to rate their immediate bosses, because it's hard to feel like you're a part of a team if all you get is criticism from one manager, and a rightful mix of praise and criticism from others (i.e. one manager just sees the negatives and never acknowledges good work to certain employees).
