    I have been working at General Growth Properties full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed the Real Estate environment and the people that I worked for. The ability to work independently and be creative in addition to working with a team and in a structured environment was like having the best of both worlds at work.

    Cons

    After GGP filed for bankruptcy protection the company started a process of downsizing and consolidating corporate and regional offices, divisions, departments and specific job functions. Understanding the necessity of the process, there was still a degrading moral from departing co-workers. It was sad to know that the Salt Lake office was slated to close.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep General Growth Properties a strong and successful company. The properties are great assets to their communities. The company offers stable and secure careers and lifestyles for so many individuals and families.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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