    I have been working at GGP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing culture, great coworkers who are also friends, ideas are celebrated and management treats you like an adult. My favorite part is honestly the people I work with...I love coming to work with them and many of us are friends outside of work. There is a lot of emphasis on culture and embodiment of our company values when people come into the organization, which ensures we get great people to work alongside. There are a lot of great benefits as well that I take advantage of, such as wellness challenges/rewards and paid time to volunteer at the charity of my choice. Excellent work life balance.

    Cons

    Would like the ability to work from home more often.

    Pros

    Company proactively drives a healthy and positive culture. Provides a common language and common ground!

    Cons

    Tendency to make everything a priority which is not helpful for the things that are true priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your people to think smarter, not just work harder.

    Pros

    Big company with a small feel. I think GGP cared about all their employees and focused on getting them to grow within.

    Cons

    The department was small and I wasn't able to grow..not saying that was the issue with all departments.

    I have been working at GGP full-time

    Pros

    Past bankruptcy and re-org gave company a chance to redefine and rebuild. A great combination of a stable business with new thinking from an infusion of folks with external experience.
    Company has focused on properties less vulnerable to on-line retail competition, and shows leadership in modern issues of security and tech integration.
    IT is laid back, but hardworking and well respected by business. Everyone has each other's backs.
    CIO is bright, and trusts her team.
    Changes in IT are creating new roles for people in the way of new work, new ways of doing work.

    Cons

    Past challenges have some teams still finding their footing, but there has been great progress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep updates coming, understand that every word carries meaning as employees watch retail related business go through transition. We appreciate being in the know.

    Pros

    GGP has it all! From an amazing corporate culture to a perfect balance of work and home life. You will not find a more caring, positive company to work for. Taking an initiative in our communities is encouraged enthusiastically, including paid volunteer hours and the allotment to do volunteering during office hours! This company sees each employee as a person and not just a number. I have been with the company for over a year and my father has been a faithful employee for over a decade! I could not be more proud to be a part of this team!

    Cons

    The only downside to working for GGP is the location of the corporate office is in Chicago, so if you want to stay with the company for the length of your career and would like to advance up the ladder, you must be okay with relocating to the windy city.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps look at placing regional positions in that region rather than based in Chicago.
