I worked at Simon Property Group full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

This organization has opportunities for those willing to commit to their business philosophy

Cons

This organization fosters tremendous greed and overzealous leadership. Managers tend to thrive on meeting their bonus potential, and overlook the importance of business functions.

Advice to Management

Limit your managers to minimal independent judgment and latitude for inititiatives.

    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.
