    I have been working at GGP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High energy and progressive management. Employees feel respected with an open-door policy to management. Employee feedback is encouraged. Fair compensation and benefits are good. Subsidized lunch program is an amazing perk.

    Cons

    Honestly, I can think of no cons.

    I worked at GGP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great portfolio of shopping centers
    Leader in the industry
    Growth opportunities if you are flexible

    Cons

    Executive Team is arrogant. The culture they try to force is not demonstrated by the C-Suite.
    So many reorgs you can't keep up with who is still with the company
    Opportunities look great but you will be reorged in 12 months or less.

    Advice to Management

    Give programs and plans a chance to produce results before you cut them.

    Pros

    Some very talented people work at GGP. Very nice paid time off. corporate office has great location in the loop

    Cons

    Most Executive leadership does not listen to or value employees. Lots of employee turnover. There are so many reorgs, it's impossible to keep up with whats what at the company. The environment is toxic and stressful. Too many promises for advancement only to be told time and time again that the hiring process is "frozen" due to budget yet many people are laid off to free up budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Work on employee retention. The great and amazing people that once worked there leave for other companies with a great culture, sense of purpose and feeling of importance. Work on company morale and communications.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Strong portfolio of properties.

    Cons

    Senior executives micro manage the executive team and frequently change strategies. Impatient, appear to be in the game for the short term.

    I worked at GGP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pays their employees on time and has great benefits. Most of the employees left are good people but the executive team cuts its way to Wall Street win

    Cons

    Very unfulfilling company to work for and the industry as a whole. There is very little autonomy, creativity and growth. Work people to death over things that wont matter. Micromanage to the end result of nothing but boring malls with boring retail

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about the people who make your buildings stay open.

    discount, hours, location, pay, was a second job for me so i did not care much, commission, great people to work with

    Cons

    requesting off was usually a problem, couldnt switch shifts, management was always in & out, breaks weren't given as they should have been

    Advice to Management

    take the job only if you want it so we do not have management going in and out all of the time. very unpleasent to work with mean people

    I worked at GGP (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. No one really works too many hours.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? It is a pretty toxic-feeling work environment. Constant fire drills to be performed for a field of far-too-many middle management types. Aloof, reclusive, condescending, and rude executive team (mostly in development department, but seemingly across the board), mediocre pay (no one is getting rich working there, let me tell you), a fear-based management system, a drab beige cubicle farm of an office, very limited upward mobility (it makes me sad thinking about all of the older people who have been in their same jobs here for decades!)

    Advice to Management

    Try just once to connect with the people that work for you. You may be surprised to learn what they think. There are many smart and talented people working at GGP, which you may notice if you paid any attention to anyone outside of the C-suite. Also, the "culture" that you are attempting to force on the company is somewhat of a sham, though it makes for a nice laughing stock at happy hour!

    Great time off you will be hard pressed to find a company that offers more paid time off.

    Cons

    Pay is low. Company does not value career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    A mentor program would be a great addation.
