Pros

Good benefits plan at GGP

Cons

Unfortunately the new executive team does not care about their employees and the little work life balance that was left went out the window when they came on board. Most departments are vastly understaffed and it is not uncommon to hear people working 60+ hours a week. It has been a year and a half since GGP emerged from bankruptcy and the dust has not settled yet. CEO continues to make organizational changes, further extending the low morale.

Advice to Management

Care more about your people.

    Pros

    Hints of former corporate culture still exist.

    Cons

    Current corporate culture is one based in distrust and fear. Former Company core values of teamwork, integrity, honesty, etc have been shattered and plan to "flatten" the organization has only resulted in departments operating in bigger silos. Collaboration between departments is not encouraged and open communication has been lost. Employee strengths are not valued. And there is no sch thing as an open door policy with the new executive team.

    Advice to Management

    Do not assume you are an expert in every aspect of the business. Trust the strengths and experience of your employees and let them do what they do best and be open to hearing differences of opinion and new ideas. Do not insult the intelligence of your employees by pretending to be pro- employee.

    Pros

    The Company cares about its employees in general and they provide you with all of the tools to do your job. Very supportive if you ask for help or you need additional resources. They have a great support system with National Operations in our sector. Lots of great people work here and I have made good friends. Very friendly overall.

    Cons

    If you are not mainstream meaning you do not dedicate time to schmoozing upper management and drinking with them at the bar, spending time with them outside of work, and behave in a manner in other wise non-threatening to them you will be stuck without any advancement opportunity and you will always receive the blame for what goes wrong. There are numerous pockets like this or what I would call "kingdoms" in the company and if you navigate the political waters carefully when you start your career here you will be fine. Make sure any great ideas look like they are coming from your boss not you.

    Advice to Management

    Value people for what they bring to the table. Make sure that good positions are awarded on merit and not friendship and that additional focus is provided to training Managers on appropriate work relationships. Drinking at the bar and forming personal relationships with subordinates is wrong and it makes good,dedicated, and hard working individuals feel like outsiders in their own team. Pay attention to the whole team and place equal emphasis on all of your team members' ideas and thoughts. Hold people accountable for results and do not accept blame shifting tactics as an acceptable reason for failure. Investigate all issues thoroughly and base your findings on facts only not emotional response.
