    I worked at Brookfield Properties as a contractor for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Middle management is very hit and miss.

    I worked at Brookfield Properties

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, 401k match etc.. but that isn't enough reason to stay. The people are generally nice but also have a ton of egos in IT Management. I personally do not look @ a company to make friends so the 'nice' people didn't warrant this company getting a good rating.

    Cons

    they outsource everything so forget about learning anything new.

    they treat consultants better than FT employees.

    IT Management pretty clueless and refuse to take ownership of anything. Mgmt would rather outsource in order to avoid being blamed for any failures.

    Very low morale among employees. People generally wait around for bonus time to then start looking for something new.

    A lot of talking but very little action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to employees.
    perhaps give internal, FT employees a chance before consultants.

    I was very dissappointed in this company, because I was discriminated against the entire time I was employed there.

    Pros

    They have amazing health benefits and a good 401K match program.

    Cons

    Where I worked the management was terrible and the turn over was high for the profession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior mangement needs to look at the leadership abilities and turn over at each building and determine if the assistant cheifs, cheifs, and regional VPs of engineering are working effectively.

    I have been working at Brookfield Properties

    Pros

    The company is pretty stable and a leader in the Industry. Brookfield Properties is medium sized which I find to be just about right, but is a matter of personal opinion. I find the people to be very nice and there is a great atmosphere in the office. There is good communication between departments as well. Saleries are competative but not fantastic.From what I've seen they prefer to promote from within. There are plenty of company events to boost morale.

    Cons

    The company expanded but recently made cuts when the economy went south. Brookfield has become more corporate over the past few years losing the family feel it once had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training and professional development is important. Keep up the good work.
