    I worked at Brookfield Properties full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great team and leadership
    - Have resources to hire the best consultants, architects and engineers
    - Work on complex and unique projects
    - Rewarded for hard work
    - Great reputation in the industry

    Cons

    - You have to make your own work/life balance, own your time and set boundaries

    Advice to Management

    Encourage teams (leasing, development, marketing, design & construction) to integrate/coordinate better so everyone is on the same page. Sometimes the right and the left hand don't always know what the other is doing. It can complicate things where communication could have saved everyone a lot of time.

    I have been working at Brookfield Properties full-time

    Pros

    The perks are limited. but as they've become more aggressive in the marketplace under new leadership the company has added more hotels and properties globally that one can vacation to. but be warned the discounts typically cover taxes and little more.

    Cons

    no promotions. they will look outward before looking within to promote their own. management team has been there for a long time, so cronyism is very prevalent. new ideas are not considered unless they come from that core group. there is little gender diversity. work/life balance is almost non-existant. its frowned upon to go to lunch for the non-manager employees and leaving on time gets looks and comments during review.
