I worked at DDR Corp

Pros

Great for task oriented individuals. Being affiliated with such a large developer opens doors with retailers and provides a tremendous opportunity to make deals.

Cons

It can be an emotionless environment. Top producers are often yesterday's news as it is a what have you done for me lately atmosphere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that sales people do not always make the best managers. Significant talent has been shown the door or left due to management conflict.

    I have been working at DDR Corp

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable. The benefits are average. The time off provided is reasonable, if you get a chance to take it. Most of the people you work with are reasonable.

    Cons

    Disconnect between upper mangement and on the ground employees is large. The amount of overtime required for salaried employees is rediculous. The lack of an expressed vision from senior managment to regular employees is bad. The constant changes and roll out of programs with out vetting with people who actually have to do the work and or understanding of long term implications is constant. There are so many layers of management that often getting anything done seems impossible. Reporting requirements are exhorbinant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your foot of the gas peddle for a minute and see what is actually working and what is not. Stop creating an atmosphere where empoyees spend a lot of time chasing their tale on projects that never accomplush anything. With all the management in place a more thorough vetting of reports and projects that are required should be easy, but when it actually hits the people have to do the work it is time consuming and confusing.
