    I worked at GGP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Clear vision on the part of senior management which is shared with employees. Excellent benefits including medical with minimal increases to employees' cost sharing. Opportunity for growth if one is willing to relocate. Fabulous, dedicated colleagues.

    Cons

    If you live in, or are willing to relocate to, the Chicago area there are tremendous opportunities. If not, there are just a few, or one, mall in a specific region which has few positions and little opportunity to advance.

    Advice to Management

    There was a period where anonymous surveys were used to gather employee questions for quarterly calls. That was discontinued and questions are no longer anonymous, decreasing the value of the input. A number of the anonymous questions were superfluous and unprofessional, but it would be a simple matter to sift those out and respond to genuine issues which are raised only anonymously. Additionally, on conference calls CEO occasionally used inappropriate slang/language. This does not make a CEO look like "one of the team". Professionalism is expected of a CEO, not a perhaps mock attempt to speak "down" to employees. That said, CEO Sandeep Mathrani is a leader I admired, and believe he has the best interests of the company and its stakeholders, including employees, at heart.

    Lease Accountant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GGP (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    They found my profile through linkedin. They saw I had previous experience with lease accounting. Luckily I was looking for a new job at the time. So I sent my resume. Had a quick phone screen with a recruiter.

    They I was passed on to another recruiter. This recruiter set up a in person interview. THe interview was 4 sessions with different team members. I met with mid level members and the vp. It was good to meet everyone.

    Questions were not about accounting. They were about work habits and how you juggle multiple priorities. Overall not hard.

    took A long time to get a response.This was frustrating as I felt the recruiter was leading me on. I got a response 3 weeks later saying that they hired someone from within the company. Recruiter said that the interviewers gave me positive feedback. I guess they were leery of hiring from the outside.
