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

    Pros

    Decent benefits plan when compared to the industry. In most cases interdepartmental relationships with other employees are pleasant and they actually willing to help if you ask.

    Cons

    Segmented work environment where the left hand is not even aware of the right hands existence. Very limited communication with people outside of your work silo, often with people in the same office reporting to a different command structure. Too many layers of VP's and AVP's who seem to have no experience at a property level.

    Advice to Management

    The company has changed from one where employee engagement, retention, training and development were key operational priorities to one where they are merely buzz words. Things like on-line collaboration tools or "Wow" programs have no affect on the field.

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

    Pros

    - Good benefits including health insurance options, 401(k), stock vesting option and health related seminars.
    - Flexible work hours.
    - Good company to gain experience as an entry level employee in property management field.

    Cons

    - No connection between properties and the corporate office. Shopping Center visits by corporate employees completely stopped after the founder passed away.
    - No room to grow, no promotions within the company. It is sad to watch so many hard-working, talented people leaving the company for new opportunity to advance their career and for salary increases. Despite to many years of great performance reviews, promotions and salary increase does not take place unless you are friends or family of the management.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Notice employee's worth.

    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.

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

    Pros

    While constantly changing depending on the new management over the years, there were years where this company was known as a family and small company feel. They spent time teaching their younger hires and most people knew each other. The pay was less than other competitors, but it was an overall good environment.

    Cons

    The environment changed, but the salary was not commensurate with the change.
