    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.

    I have been working at Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc.

    Pros

    -very casual and relaxed environment, no dress code is required
    -senior management is very approachable and an open door policy is put in place

    Cons

    growth opportunity is limited and compensation is not tied to performance, starting salary is ok but the increase is very minimum even when the job description and title have changed
    complete lack of communication on company development and key issues.
    there is overall dissatisfaction among employees, only upper management is evaluated, there is no performance review and feedback.

    No opinion of CEO
