    I worked at Simon Property Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Loved working with the information systems department, a lot of people with great personalities - Great area for young people, lots of local festivals and food events - Was given meaningful, and relevant work (which is sometimes hard for an intern to come by at some places) - BIGGEST PRO: upper-level c-suite cared about interns, made sure to set aside time and hosted events where they discussed future of company with the interns

    Cons

    - not much travel for someone who might want that experience, but the office is beautiful

    Advice to Management

    - continue to network and interact with interns

    Pros

    Amazing to work for. I only left because I wanted to move up and no positions were open at the time.

    Cons

    Corporate direction felt distant at times from Indiana. More attempts to make the company feel connected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing honestly, you're moving things in the right direction.

    I have been working at Simon Property Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.


  9. Pros

    If you are willing to work you can grow quickly in the company, but you have to be willing to move/relocate.

    Cons

    Challenging to max out bonus opportunities as there are many things that go into the annual calculation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are with the HR department! Need to have HR reps be proactive with staff rather than reactive. Reps should reach out to employees occasionally to discuss things such as career growth, employee/individual challenges, etc.

    I worked at Simon Property Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Promotions, benefits, nice environment, MOST of the staff was very nice. Every office has a bad apple.

    Cons

    If you get the wrong mentor it can be an unpleasant experience as it was in my case. Nothing to do with the company but just the person that was suppose to "mentor me" She was not ready or mature enough to handle interns.

    Advice to Management

    Just to make sure that the right person is in charge of interns.
