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

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible hours and salaries are above average.

    Cons

    Lots of politics to get a final decision. “Too many chefs in the kitchen”

    Advice to Management

    Needs to either embrace the idea of letting the employees make the decisions like they want to or create a hierarchy so one person can make it... right now it is in between both and the process just takes way too long.
