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

I have been working at CBL & Associates Properties

Pros

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

Cons

Large, 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 ManagementAdvice

Show 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.

    Many good people, management at the top is exceptionally disconnected.

    I worked at CBL & Associates Properties full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some fabulous people that work at this company. If you're lucky to have a strong boss, you'll be shielded from much of the nonsense that goes on and actually be able to be productive and have individual growth.

    Cons

    Corporate is clueless and quite disorganized. There are distinct cliques and "favorites" and a resistance to inclusion on many levels. I was actually at meetings where there was not a single female speaker featured and there was an exceptional celebration of sports coaches from Utah and of sports in general (I don't mind sports, but when that is ALL that is featured, it gets old). They will tout how important family is, however, they have no compunction about forcing work/travel on weekends without giving any comp time in exchange, which is just silly. I truly feel that the only reason one of the larger developers haven't done a take over of this company is that it would be too much work to sell the 50 ugly properties in order to secure the 15 solid ones and the 25 so-so ones. The IT department has a stranglehold and will actually actively discourage or tell VP level managers no to simple requests because they are quite convinced that they'll be hacked. And if you'd like to have a career path there - good luck. There is minimal opportunity for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. There are some absolute gems working there, but at the rate this company is going with the new CEO, they won't be there long unless they are close to retirement.
