    I have been working at Taubman Centers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It feels great to be a part of a team that is known for producing the highest quality and most valuable product in its industry. Senior management is incredibly talented, dedicated, thoughtful, long-term oriented, and they think like owners (because they are). Its a collaborative culture with great values, and there are lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    While some reviewers cite a lack of advancement opportunities - and the truth is that the senior management team has collectively been in place for decades - this is in my mind a unique positive of this company. Management works well together, are battle tested, and have produced top notch results. Their remaining in place I believe creates better opportunity for all employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Strong brand and portfolio, Bobby Taubman is great, hard workers, good benefits, nice office, lunch program (pro and con),
    good resources.

    Cons

    Complete lack of integrity from management. Different rules for different people. Gossip is beyond tolerable, especially from management. No work life balance and limited flexibility. Minimal constructive feedback given to employees. even though there is a process to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your management. Look at how few people go to human resources for fear of consequences. Lack of leadership is a problem. Need to look at the lack of experience of managers in actually "managing" people.

    I have been working at Taubman Centers full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits including good health insurance, dental, vision, long-term disability and employees are able to pick their lunch from a binder of restaurant menus (paid for by Taubman). Management really works to train you and keep you around for the long-term. People are generally proud to work here, and they're well-known in the community for philanthropy.

    Cons

    Though it's nice that we have free lunch every day, we do not get lunch breaks. Employees can request to leave at lunch, and mine is flexible, but I hate having to ask permission to run to the post office. Pressures of changing shopping trends loom like a black cloud over the workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees' worries about the company and address their concerns.

    Pros

    Great people, high integrity throughout. Highly respected within the industry. Without question, I enjoyed my time more with Taubman than any organization i have worked with throughout my career.

    Cons

    As I suggested in my previous description, there is very little not to like about the Taubman organization. Great company, culture, people and product.

    I worked at Taubman Centers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefit package, but steadily being reduced

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Managers and directors closed minded. Preference for hiring poorly qualified employees, instead of professional persons. Good workers not valued. Management operates on the principles of workplace gossip, among employees. Supervisors un professional, and un trained, not reprimanded by management, for un appropriate behavior and actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with credentials, and directors that have been trained in the industry.
