    I worked at Macerich full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company is very organized and has ample resources to support its managers. There are always new projects and initiatives, which is refreshing vs. a routine job.

    Cons

    No cons but be prepared to work weekends and holidays. If you love what you do, especially special events, t won't matter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great coworkers, friendly and willing to help. Management tries to make it fun by holding monthly fun events ordering pizza, watching movies, etc.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, as is typical of alot of IT departments the ones that are promoted to leadership roles are prior developers, etc with little management experience and unfortunately it is not a natural fit with their backgound/personality.

    Advice to Management

    when the life of a product comes to an end, true leaders/managers should see the potential of existing employees and try to find places for their talent where they can contribute. Macerich managers unfortunately urge you instead to find another job.

    I worked at Macerich full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company that respects employees and cares about work/life balance. Wonderful family-like culture with very caring management. However, every department has a different culture. My experience in my department was very positive and I truly enjoyed working for my boss and other VP's.

    Cons

    Next to no interdepartmental communication. If I worked in a department where I had to rely on communication between leasing or accounting, etc I can see how I would extremely frustrated. Heard many rumors that the accounting department was strict and inflexible and lended itself to a very anxiety prone environment. Also, H.R. did not seem to have their ducks in a row. Had a wonky experience when I needed advice from them.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more! Enough with the "good ol' boys" mentality. Would love to see some more women in management and VP roles because you do have a great company!

    Pros

    Fantastic work environment. Great people. Very flexible with schedules to accommodate commutes, family needs, etc.

    Cons

    Just like any company, a poor direct supervisor can outweigh the overall company culture. There is definitely some of that at Macerich.

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

    Pros

    Benefits and time off. Some of the Macerich employees are very nice and good working relationships are great. I can't think of anything else. They are very mediocre..

    Cons

    Upper Management changes their priorities constantly. Upper Management needs to understand the property management teams is in the know and should listen.. You don't have a personal life and no one notices..

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the property management teams. To many people harass and HR does not take anything seriously. HR should be investigated.

    Pros

    We have a great boss on site and it's an easy going work environment on the property level. Friendly co-workers on site.

    Notice employee's worth.
