    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.

    Professional teams and managers, good benefits, 401K match, stock purchase and insurance.

    Develop in house talent so they don't leave.

    I have been working at Macerich full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment and easy to get along with senior management. Very friendly group of people and all of the resources to get daily tasks completed are available and adequate.

    Cons

    There is no path for professional development. If this is not your dream position you will not be working towards such a role here.

    Advice to Management

    A leadership forum would go a long way. Far to often company goals and directives overshadow the day to day work because leleadership struggles to execute and results in time and resources consuming busy work rather than driving day to day tasks towards the stated goals.

    Pros

    Good company for the most part. Paid weekly. Good benefits. Match 401K.

    Cons

    Management shifts gears swiftly. Whats a priority one quarter may not be the next.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the local managers. They have their boots to the ground.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and good people. They have a lot of long-term employees; if you play the politics correct, they'll protect you and do what they can to keep you happy

    Cons

    it depends who your manager is on whether or not they respect work/life balance; you are often expected to check/respond to emails even when on vacation. Don't do your job too well or you won't be considered for other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the people in the field instead of sweeping roll-outs of new initiatives; think through changes before just "throwing them out there".

    Pros

    Great company, no complaints. The culture is great, the environment is great as well. I would work with them again.

    Cons

    Strict deadlines, it can be a bit face paced at times but overall a good company. They were pretty flexible with my school schedule.

    I worked at Macerich full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at Macerich due to the managable workload and laid back managerial approach by my superior. The atmosphere was very comfortable and I got along with all of my coworkers especially those I worked directly with. The pay and location were also favorable.

    Cons

    Upper management was incredibly inept and it felt that a lot of people in top positions got there due to past friendships or family connections. Despite a pleasant atmosphere one did have to look out for the occassional snitch and back stabber. There's one in every office and seemed to be more at Macerich.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the hard working and dedicated employees while dismissing those lazy people who milk the system and perform poorly.

    Pros

    Great Team building in each department.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of at the moment.
