    Pros

    CBL is very involved in the community, and encourages a work-life balance for it's employees while providing opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    Location. Chattanooga is not a convenient location for those who have to travel often to meet with clients. CBL is also too conservative at times when it comes to investing in change -such as with new computer software.

    Pros

    The people at CBL made it a great place to work! Enjoyed the opportunities for growth and how upper management followed an open door policy. Solid benefits and pay was fair.

    Cons

    Slow to make decisions and execute changes to established business procedures; outdated technology in some departments; few vacation days when you first begin

    Keep up the good work! Remember to make the workplace a fun environment so people enjoy coming to work each day.

    Pros

    Learn the aspects of retail leasing and be a part of a temp leasing program expert

    Cons

    Unfrotunately they spend money on the wrong things to make what they think is a profitable change when in reality they create more work for the staff and end up hiring more people after leaving valuable people go due to downsizing. Constant downsizing in this company. Huge layoffs constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the malls. Focus on what is right for each mall and cloning marketing attempts at every mall is a bust.

    I worked at CBL & Associates Properties full-time

    Pros

    Good insurance, good location. Most of the people who work there are great people.

    Cons

    IT staff is underpaid and underappreciated. Little room for professional growth. CBL prefers to hire outside the company rather than promote from within. Those who do get ahead are those who don't mind stepping on others. It can be difficult knowing who to trust. Many workers are unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    You have some amazing people who work for you. Take the time to learn their complete skillset instead of boxing them into their current role. Promote from within-- oftentimes you already have the talent you're looking for. And pay market rates!

    Pros

    The business has a clear protocol for processes and procedures. Once you learn how something is done, your in.

    Cons

    The protocols are not flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps look into some software upgrades that would allow for a more dynamic interface between the field and home office.

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people work for this company. Really they are friendly and kind, but also a disorganized mess.

    Cons

    They micro manage the staff, but have no clear training, so it makes it very difficult to do a good job. Odd policies, and no guidance, you have to assume that the person telling you what to do is correct. If they spent half as much time actually communicating as they spend talking about communicating it would be a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe look at what other companies are doing right and emulate that. You have great people but they are all working based on no current training. Also take ownership of management policies and move the company into this century.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work with. Great benefits.

    Cons

    No cons to be perfectly honest.

    Advice to Management

    Go with the flow and learn the upgrades.
