    Pros

    Smaller field teams allow for a more personal and productive work environment, great benefits, lots of company perks, pays seems high for this market; very accommodating for children/family/personal scheduling needs.

    Too many different software programs to work within, as well as changes to new software programs; Distribution of procedures could definitely be better on the corporate end.

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    GGP has, without doubt, the best employees. They are great to work with. There was no one that wasn't willing to stop what they were working on to help you. Everyone was quite professional. Good pay and benefits

    It only takes one person to goof it all up

    Take a good look past at who drives the bus in the various departments and see who really is doing the great jobs.

    Pros

    Having been employed by GGP for the past 3 years I have really enjoyed the company culture and their strong passion to give back. The company provides in-house volunteer opportunities (during the work day) and paid time off for the employee’s to participate. It also recognizes work/life balance by offering summer hours, everyday jeans and our ability to leave early the day before the holidays. On top of that, the company cares about your opinion and you are strongly encouraged to share your ideas. The CEO makes himself available by hosting employee calls and gives us an opportunity to ask him questions and they are constantly rolling our different ways to engage employees through employee engagement survey’s, culture sessions, our values, marketing games and opportunities to meet other employee’s.

    Cons

    If you didn’t’ know, GGP did file bankruptcy a few years ago and has since recovered. Early on during my tenure you could feel the silo’s old v/s new GGP considering a brand new leadership was brought in; since then the silos have been breaking down and I do feel the company’s HADTO values and culture sessions have helped. I would encourage making the Culture Leadership Team more visible to employees. We hear about the things they do but would be great if we they could host roundtables with the employees to help promote idea sharing. As for IT, I think it’s great this company invests so much into technology and constantly hear new apps are being rolled out to help us make better decisions. Rather than only e-mailing the updates it would be great for IT to host a session to talk about the recent updates and how to use them.

    Advice to Management

    For Leadership – continue doing what you do and making yourselves available to us, the more this continues I think the rest will follow.

    I have been working at GGP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the Real Estate environment and the people that I worked for. The ability to work independently and be creative in addition to working with a team and in a structured environment was like having the best of both worlds at work.

    Cons

    After GGP filed for bankruptcy protection the company started a process of downsizing and consolidating corporate and regional offices, divisions, departments and specific job functions. Understanding the necessity of the process, there was still a degrading moral from departing co-workers. It was sad to know that the Salt Lake office was slated to close.

    Advice to Management

    Keep General Growth Properties a strong and successful company. The properties are great assets to their communities. The company offers stable and secure careers and lifestyles for so many individuals and families.

    Cons

    Company functions similar to start-up things can change constantly so the culture is not for everyone.
