    Great people and teams, benefits, work life balance.

    Develop talent from within, I've seen a lot of talent leave for better opportunities.

    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 culture, they take care of their own. Decent room for growth if you show talent and hard work. They have great resources since it's a public company, and the people up top are very smart and approachable.

    Cons

    You don't get much training unless you happen to get set up with a good mentor. When/if you get let go there is no loyalty to having worked for the company, they cut the chord very quickly, and harshly.

    Advice to Management

    You should make time to invest in your younger employees. In the long run it only makes your own job easier.

    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!

    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!

    I worked at Macerich full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k, good perks

    Cons

    Too many to include all. There is no room for growth. The only people that are promoted are 95% men and only if they are friends with the CEO's or executives. There are many work environment issues such as bullying and harassment. I experienced harassment at this company after 1 year working for Macerich. Nothing happens to the people that causes problems. Even if you complain. I complained of harassment to my boss and he assured me that it was reported to corporate. I was never contacted about this issue so I'm sure it was never reported.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees opportunities to grow, listen to all complaints, especially harassment complaints.

    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.
