    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Macerich full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pay, 3 weeks vaca after 5 years, ESPP plans. Depending on your department, the culture is fun and family like. If you get in the wrong dept.... then not so much. Work -Life balance for most Mostly everyone is nice but you pretty much stay in your department silo's.

    Cons

    Macerich is in transition and is under constant scrutiny from investors and there are always rumors of an acquisition. They recently let go of over 100 corporate employees and have been cutting budgets at properties for awhile. The retail industry is struggling and its showing at Macerich.

    "Not a great place to work used to be better"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Macerich

    Pros

    The only real reason to work here is to gain experience and build your resume and then take it with you somewhere better.

    Cons

    Many, many cons. Based upon my experience, hostile working environment, not-so-great pay (not even really market competitive), micromanagement hell, heavy workload, few growth opportunities, upper management absolutely does not care about employees, high turnover. Typically there are layoffs every year in February like clockwork. I write all this not to be vindictive but in the hopes that someone gets some brutally honest...

    Advice to Management

    You make the “buzz” talk that people are your greatest asset and what makes Macerich great but that doesn’t come through in action.

    I worked at Macerich full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent Real Estate -

    Cons

    Truly the worst experience of my professional career. Everyone is a relative or has been there for 20-30 years. Chauvinistic and arrogance beyond belief. They aren’t competitive in salaries however the average amount of hours worked in my Dept was prob @ 25- weekly full time hours so that’s why people stay. They will be the next REIT to be acquired or taken over. They are forecasting false information to Wall Street....

    I worked at Macerich for less than a year

    Pros

    Wish I had something positive to say. A truly negative experience.

    Cons

    Property managers that are untrustworthy (financial improprieties), no creativity allowed, follow the company program and do what you are told. I worked for 5 different managers in one year, two of which with no experience overseeing a mall (25 years old and younger). I wouldn’t allow someone like that to manage a multi million dollar shopping center. Too much upper management making big dollars. All for me and none...

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to do their job. Lose the arrogance-you are not the only real estate company in town.
