    Good money--disrespectful management.

    Leasing Manager (Former Employee)

    Prosnice office, good standard of living in Chattanooga, rewarded for results.

    ConsManagement is run like a frat, and they like to publicly humiliate employees that make mistakes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the "monkey". Someone's gonna sue you eventually...you are lucky it wasn't me.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No more for growth and you are their slaves.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsProfessional environment only in dress code, great health benefits, reasonable pay

    ConsGossip environment, working OT with no compensation, highly stressful, no room for growth, not a friendly environment, Lebovitz arrogant

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop thinking that you're God and be part of the working environment with your employees instead of dividing them with a wall. Arrogance and gossip, high school. No room for growth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Children at the helm. Literally.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits are ok. Company appears to be financially sound.

    ConsTop down culture. Input from the field is not solicited. Bullies abound. Company is strictly driven by Return on Investment. Work environment stessful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the bad eggs at Corporate and in the field. CBL knows who they are! Life is too short to work with a-holes. A complete culture change is needed. Currently, the top three priorities at CBL are: 1. ROI ; 2. ROI ; 3. ROI. Employees, ethics, and customers are a bit further down on the list. Can you say acquisition?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience has been good but strained as the job is not what I enterviewed for - deceived.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chattanooga, TN

    ProsCBL is a family owned business and has a family philosophy. Employees work hard but family life is respected and time with family is honored in my department.

    ConsNot very flexible on schedules for most part and old fashioned ideas about dress code..no denim even on casual days. In reference to technology, somewhat behind...still using Lotus Notes. Some departments lack the manpower needed and employees are exploited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork harder to keep up with technology. Those who deceived will be deceived.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No title

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCBL & Associates has been in business for over 35 years. Established. Anticipate another 35 years.

    ConsFamily run business. Senior Management still a Boys Club with old school ideas. Personnel issues not dealt with in a timely manner. Too much work, not enough employees.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great company with great leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chattanooga, TN

    Pros- Opportunities for advancement and growth
    - Personable and reasonable leadership
    - More casual and friendly than some corporate environments
    - My supervisors went beyond being bosses, and took the time to be mentors and friends

    Cons- No true cons. Every workplace will have it's little nuances, depending on your personality and needs, and the same holds true here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    management review

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chattanooga, TN

    ProsReconizible name within the community and us

    ConsDisconnected upper management
    Improper communication methods from upper management…aka temper tantrums
    A public company ran like a private family owned company….can you say family partiality??

    Advice to Senior ManagementFraternizing in the past has not paid off. You might consider not continuing it in the future.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nepotism Reigns

    Manager (Former Employee) Chattanooga, TN

    ProsLarge publicly traded company. National presence. Large portfolio>

    ConsCompany run by one family. Key positions held by family members despite not being qualified. Family members are grossly over compensated. Worst benefits package imaginable. Employees are not valued for their input. Very patriarchal. Need to kiss butt if you want to survive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoesn't matter. They would not listen. But here goes anyways...value your employees, discover their talents and let them add value based on their strengths. Management needs to be broom swept out the door. Hire and promote and compensate based on value creation and not family name. Try treating employees with respect.

    No respect

    Assistant General Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThey have a great conference once a year for the Assistant General Managers, but other than that the communication within the company is terrible.

    ConsThere is no room for growth in the company. There is a lot of pressure to perform in your role, but the support is not there from upper management. Raises have not been given in over 4 years and commissions have been cut in half for 4 years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lack of growth, recognition, and respect for employees other than upper management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood direct team members, numerous responsibilities forces you to learn and grow individually

    ConsLarge, publicly traded corporation still run by a small family and few decision makers. Top-down culture, very slow dinosaur-like growth & initiatives. Refuse to spend money and compensate employees accordingly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow some recognition for your hard-working employees and offer even a small piece of the pie. When the company succeeds, so should your employees. Share the love so people stick around. Talk WITH them not AT them. Avoid scare tactics.
