Pros

Many changes for the better post-bankrupcy. Although rocky at the start, the CEO seems to be steering the ship in the right path, promoting steady growth and healthy company culture.

Cons

Been pigeon-holed in the same position for 5+ years, with little opportunity for upward mobility. Middle management in certain departments are unapproachable and unsupportive.

Advice to Management

Get out of your office and learn the names of your subordinates.

    As a whole company is ok, but the Business Development dept is a nightmare. Marketing is not too far behind.

    Pros

    Industry resources are abundant. There are some really great people in this company. There are a lot of malls, so you can move around if you want to-

    Cons

    1) Employees are required to work at 2-3 properties, sometimes having to drive 2-3 hours to secondary locations. 2) When times are tough, instead of pulling everyone together to solve issues they use punishment as a way to motive reps to reach goals. 3) One size fits all management style which operates to lowest common denominator. 4) Don't care about the people...just the production. 5) Leadership is not transparent. Top level executive is rough around the edges. 6) Poor communication This was once a family owned business with great values and ethics. It is sad to see how it is now.

    Advice to Management

    People in this field are self motivated and they want to achieve. Take care of the employees and they will produce for you! Treat your vendors better. You are losing business because the word is out that the company doesnt treat tenants fairly.
