I worked at Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc.

Pros

Low-threshold for doing well allows individuals to progress and receive positive reviews. This makes for a good job with someone pursuing something outside of work such as a music or acting career in which they need a continual paycheck. MMPI has short hours.

Cons

The firms is largely guided by the upper level management who control the intellectual and then export the rest of it to the lower level management. Overall a very polarized atmosphere that, I believe, bred animosity between the two parties.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would advise cutting down on staff to become more efficient. The corporate structure is bloated and lackluster in talent pools.

    Pros

    Matching 401k, good health insurance and decent vacation. Merchandise Mart Properties is widely recognized as a name brand which helps when looking for a new job.

    Cons

    Management is not competent in many cases. Politics play a huge role in who is hired and promoted. Promotions are not based on merit and salaries are generally very low if not an executive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be competent and lead by example instead of relying on their subordinates to do their work for them.
