    Pros

    The perks are limited. but as they've become more aggressive in the marketplace under new leadership the company has added more hotels and properties globally that one can vacation to. but be warned the discounts typically cover taxes and little more.

    Cons

    no promotions. they will look outward before looking within to promote their own. management team has been there for a long time, so cronyism is very prevalent. new ideas are not considered unless they come from that core group. there is little gender diversity. work/life balance is almost non-existant. its frowned upon to go to lunch for the non-manager employees and leaving on time gets looks and comments during review.

    Leadership skills should be key for senior management and people should be promoted on this basis

    Pros

    A stable company with plenty of room for growth and unseen opportunities. Willing to grow with you. All employees were treated top tier. Cannot appropriately comment on how great it was to work for such an amazing company.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours, but always rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome.

    Pros

    Brookfield properties has a very warm and friendly staff. The company culture is warm, and upper management is willing to help you if you need anything. The work environment is also also clean and modern.

    Cons

    The work place seemed quite hierarchical, but that is perhaps true of every company. The job description is quite limited and you may find yourself bored of doing the same routine work everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make work less boring and routine for lower level employees. You can set up group events or give some flexibility to their jobs to make it more interesting.

    Pros

    Very good benefits - excellent health, dental, 401k and vacation time

    Cons

    Not very generous on salary and they only like to give 2% increases usually. Quite the old boy's club. Men are promotted over women. Despite looking for other opportunities within company, speaking with management, no encouragement is delivered.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management is very hit and miss.
