    Pros

    Loved it, great people. I really enjoyed going to work everyday. I had never been to Indianapolis before, and it was a great experience and met a lot of really nice people.

    Cons

    It was a little difficult to find housing and they did not help.

    Advice to Management

    Match interns for housing.

    Pros

    Variety of tasks, organizing different fun events through out the year, working with different stakeholders: retail tenants, sponsors, short term tenants, and visitors

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours, weekend hours. Unfortunate to have just one bad apple at the office, but that can happen anywhere

    Advice to Management

    Nothing in particular

    Marketing Intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Simon Property Group

    Pros

    Was given the opportunity to take charge of different projects and get involved in the planning and distribution process of signage, social media, and organizing events. Office employees become like family, you get to make many contacts and connections with organizations and retail tenants, you are included in meetings, conference calls, in-mall and external activities. You learn a lot about different marketing strategies.

    Cons

    Top management is way too over their heads and can be too authoritative and demanding, they lack communication with employees, expect you to be as immersed and addicted with work like them telling you this is "the real world", many do not know how to prioritize and give the interns busy work and meaningless tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Lower your expectations with interns and learn how to be better leaders without having the need to belittle others

    Pros

    Being able to see the latest in retail trends and working closely with other field reps in other territories made working the long hours tolerable. This job was interesting and creative. I was proud to work for this company for over 12 years.

    Cons

    The company really only cares about the bottom line. "How much money can you squeeze from your tenants before they have to leave?" Management can be clique-ish and sometimes backstabbing. It really depends on how well you are meeting your numbers and if you kiss butt.

    Pros

    Great company. Executives are personable and positive. Pay was competitive and benefits were good. Lots of cross training for other departments.

    Cons

    Always work the day after Thanksgiving. Dealing with tenants can be challenging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with requests for time off. Strict rules for scheduling vacation time. Sometimes makes it difficult to deal with an emergency.

    Pros

    They have a lot of great products that I have the benefit of using. I've used everything that the sell and everything really works.

    Cons

    They only pay 8$ an hour, its also a family owned business so they are never really checking up on the store or caring at all.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay so that they wouldn't have to keep hiring different people, also to organize the store better so we can get more customers in.
