Pros

Competitive pay, decent training, company highly values its employees and treats them as true assets. High standards in property upkeep, customer experience, and marketing production. Macerich is a top notch REIT that knows what their doing.

Cons

Marketing efforts can be stale at times and driven from the top down. Frivilous events with limited payback and traffic generation. Localized creativity can be stifled by corporate marketing objectives. Marketing generates little to no revenue and is the first to go in lean times.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and keep investing in your employees. Utilize marketing to bring in ad revenue as other management firms do.

    Pros

    Generally, a positive corporate culture - there are a lot of good people that work there. Excellent benefit package.

    Cons

    Many of the departments suffer from a top heavy organizational structure, with a staggering number of vice presidents in place shoveling out projects to the property level - most of which have little, if any, apparent relevance other than justifying the existence of their positions. Limited advancement potential for individuals in non revenue generating operational positions, as those departments tend to have a much leaner organizational structure - not to mention a constant battle to justify one's own existence through countless reports and metrics since you're not bringing in money. Often the company as a whole feels like it is managed directly out of whichever management theory book is in vogue at the moment - far too much emphasis on drilling the slogan of the moment into the collective minds of the employees versus genuinely putting into practice. Becomes Dilbert-esque after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Thin the ranks of the meaningless VPs and AVPs.

    I worked at Macerich full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company is very organized and has ample resources to support its managers. There are always new projects and initiatives, which is refreshing vs. a routine job.

    Cons

    No cons but be prepared to work weekends and holidays. If you love what you do, especially special events, t won't matter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
