I have been working at Westfield full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good benefits, good pay (great bonuses if you get it) and good name on resume. Overall, the company has a strong reputation. Many locations and departments around the world but the Company has sold many Centers in 2012 which caused staff reductions. Company is moving to a new corporate office in April 2013 in Century City (very nice building and location).

Cons

Over the years, the company has had many terminations of employees but I hear the severance pay is very good. Employee moral is low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support employees with training and career advancement.

    Pros

    spectacular view of santa monica, corporate office will be moving to century city which will provide better work areas, and amenities.

    Cons

    traffic, unjust treatment of employees, department politics, uneducated managers and directors. hard work goes without acknowledgment, and favoritism is a common issue with every department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    see who the real employees are that are efficiently completing the tasks.

    I worked at Westfield full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most employees here are highly engaged and motivated to be seen as top performers. Pay is competitive in the industry. Each department and center has its own very distinct personality so if hired you're likely to find like-minded people to collaborate. Top notch offices and image in the industry, cutting edge.

    Cons

    Regular mixed messages and double speak from the EVP level and up. Compete projects quickly but be thorough and take your time. Drive revenue/cut expenses this year but always focus on the long term. Nepotism and 'who you know' hiring throughout the centers and corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop comparing the business to Australia or the UK... these centers are not in those countries. Take a moment and compare the US centers with their competition in each market. Stop focusing on this year's financials and focus on the long term. Understand that tension between departments is not a good thing and just frustrates employees and wastes time that could be spent tending to the business.
