    Ability to learn and develop marketing skills, network with multiple tenants. Enjoyed and effectively coordinated mall events.

    Pros

    Learn the ins-and-outs of Mall management and work to help different types of retailers succeed. Management really works with interns to immerse them into the culture and business. Had a position been open when my internship was complete, I would have accepted.

    Cons

    As an intern, I really experienced nothing negative.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with management was a positive one.

    Pros

    The company seems fairly stable.

    Cons

    Poor on-boarding program - it is a sink or swim situation.

    Payment plan is based on budgets. Hitting your budget is next to impossible the way they have their goals set up.

    While budgets will be increased yearly to meet corporates >10% growth demands, it is almost impossible to make those numbers based on the advertising assets that are now available.

    The office I was in was predominately professional. However, there were one or two individuals that really brought down the office culture and made work horrible for most.

    Advice to Management

    Get your training program running.
    Make sure your regional managers are doing their job.
    Make sure you are developing some products that can compete it other media.

    Pros

    Loved the job itself.

    Cons

    Management doesn't want to help with achieving goals they just want them done. They overload you and set you up for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Work together and not just tear down peoples actions afterwards.

    Pros

    I loved the benefits, and my co workers. I worked at the mall level, so I interacted with the tenants which ialso loved. There was a lot of money freedom there, so you could order a ton of office supplies and what you needed, and do whatever you wanted as long as your work was done

    Cons

    There were no challenges for my position. It's corporate so if that tells you anything.they don't really hire within, which is why I started working there in the first place I wanted to move up, and there is a ton of environmental waste, they just don't care

    Advice to Management

    Let the malls run themselves. They know what's best for the area, the people in corporate don't. Dont focus do much on branding simon as a whole, no one cares, brand each mall uniquely. And waaaayyy better training. There is little to none.

    If they actually cared or considered their employees when making decisions, maybe people wouldn't quit so often

    Pros

    It's a job... A place to work. 40 hours, go home, start over.

    Cons

    Management and supervisors promote a negative, derogatory and, cutthroat environment by pitting yes men employees against other employees instead of promoting a positive and proactive team venture. Safety training is not offered by Simon and if questioned, you are isolated from co workers and the negative comments from the Yes employees become visible. Tattleing on coworkers is encouraged by promises of compensation, and it shows through those who are the unqualified employees making large wages.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should take a good long deep look at these people. Some of these people have been here Way too many years. Corporate should send them to some of their other properties. Their lack of qualifications will stand out immediately. I doubt anyone at other properties will cover up for them like it's being done here.

    Pros

    Awesome work amenities, gym, showers. starting salary if not in entry level position.

    Cons

    bonuses??? they mentioned it but didn't follow through.. didn't follow through with other promises that were part of offer.. Department head did not know what was going on in the department and would complain and have no clue what was actually being done.

    Advice to Management

    Promote managers to department heads ie. the head of my department should not of been a former developer that they wanted to keep in the company after they had to let go or force into retirement a lot of the developers. Our department head was not efficient or effective.
