    I worked at DDR Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice pay and benefits. Some people were great to work with.

    Cons

    So many. Constantly changing executive teams which led to lay offs. No stability in direction because of the executive changes. Managers are aggressive and hostile, they will bully you to get their way. Mandatory overtime at times. High stress environment. No growth. A lot of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the executive team. Stop the lay offs. Stop the high stress environment. Stop promoting bullies! Be better to your employees.

    Pros

    Some good people work here

    Cons

    Leadership is by fear and putting in extra hours/effort is ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the good people leave so it’s difficult to tell mgmt what they should already know. They are in mgmt because they except the already terrible/fearful way to manage.

    Pros

    DDR is ahead of the curve in respects to IT. It provides the employees great tools to use at their finger tips to be efficient, successful and productive. They have great benefits, they are self insured and pass the savings to the employee for low premiums.

    Cons

    Upper management leads by fear. It’s a dictatorship and employees are continually threatened they will lose their job. Your job performance is based on your variance to budget than looking to see if the framework makes sense and we are making the right decisions for the company overall.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people you can trust to do the job. Be leaders not managers. Be collaborative. Place more value on your people and you will see a shift in your financial success.

    I worked at DDR Corp full-time

    Pros

    • Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
    • Nice HQ amenities.
    • High paid time off issued day one relative to peers.

    Cons

    • No room for career advancement (only for MT’s).
    • Very cliquish, exclusionary culture unless you are aligned with proper manager.
    • Super’s often delve too much into other people’s business and oftentimes seem unfamiliar with true leadership qualities. Also, didn’t seem to serve a critical role in operations.
    • A job for most—no real focus on any “meaningful” career development.
    • Work load continually increased without add’l comp or benefits. Expected to handle more work w/o any say whatsoever.
    • Communication from SVP to group was rather poor and decision-making was always frenetic, last minute and hastily implemented without input from those ultimately affected.

    Advice to Management

    Your talent is only as good as you allow them to be. Also, get some process improvement black belt training—you desperately need it!
