Pros

Good work/life balance and good people to work with

Cons

Managament is out of touch with how low morale is after 19 months in bankruptcy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat people with respect and recognize that culture isn't changed overnight when new managment is hired

    Pros

    The company makes it easy for you to connect with other employees within GGP, so access to people and information is relatively simple.

    Cons

    The company was definitely spreading itself thin in regards to the on-site accounting positions. It would have helped if there was more visibility beyond just the property you were working for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that your staff, especially those in management type roles, are knowledgeable about their areas of expertise. Have a way for the General Manager of the property to oversee different departments to ensure quality.

    Great company to work for pre 2008, New GGP cares more about revenue than it's people

    Pros

    Good benefits plan at GGP

    Cons

    Unfortunately the new executive team does not care about their employees and the little work life balance that was left went out the window when they came on board. Most departments are vastly understaffed and it is not uncommon to hear people working 60+ hours a week. It has been a year and a half since GGP emerged from bankruptcy and the dust has not settled yet. CEO continues to make organizational changes, further extending the low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your people.
