Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Simon Property Group full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Location, parking, good properties in portfolio and hardworking people in many segments. Company went through down turn better than most.

Cons

All work in fear of CEO. It is run as his personal company and bully play pen. Very immature, degrading, with very bad manners. A very spoiled and unenlightened Napolean. Most are very happy he is gone to NY. Maybe some of the screaming and little bully boy name calling will stop.

Work with very old fashioned technology. The IT sophistication is very low except when it comes to shutting down what programs can be used. Operating on out of date browsers and software. Company is full of control freaks.

Advice to Management

Your people will never really work hard with such poor people skills at the top. Developers are outclassed by other companies and very lazy.

    I worked at Simon Property Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Good attitudes. A willingness to help.

    Cons

    Management does not care what happens to you. They will do anything to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Get some educated leadership and quit trying to limp along with supervisors and managers who are poorly prepared. The upper echelons crow about their Wharton, Harvard, and Stanford grads, but there is none of this talent wasted on middle management. These people stand on their workers and take all the credit. Too bad if you are just starting out.
