      I worked at CBL & Associates Properties full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Some good working relationships Opportunities to move around Casual days

      Cons

      Very reactive environment, no looking ahead The work load is chaotic, there is no chance of getting caught up The gossip culture is toxic It's who you know, if you want to get promoted CEO gets a 34% raise while the workforce is lucky to get 1% 'we've always done it this way' mindset runs rampant Let's not forget the constant Flux of lawsuits

      Advice to Management

      Stop relying on 10%of your staff to carry the company Place knowledgeable people in management positions, not the ones who are fun to drink with Stop handing out frivolous promotions to the inner circle when you've told the company funds are tight and you've fired half the field staff.

      Neutral Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at CBL & Associates Properties full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Being able to work and interact in positive manner with office and home office personnel, store owners and managers Responsibilities included making sure payable's, receivables, balancing check books, processing internal income were done in timely manner. Interaction with office personnel store owners/managers, customers, home office personnel.

      Cons

      Their lack of appreciation for loyalty, hard work, extra hours worked to accomplish their goals. Their lack of belief in long time productive employees over short term, lower paid, employee, ie: RIF the higher paid employee with 25 years of service, keep the three year less knowledgeable of company and policy.

      Advice to Management

      Learn that someone who puts in the time, effort, hard work, and research to keep the company running is more valuable than the newer, less trained, lower paid employee who does not exhibit the desire to learn all areas of the position.
