Senior Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 24, 2018
No work/life balance - very hectic and chaotic between the extremely high employee turnover, the system software conversion, and management turnover up to the executive level this was a very difficult time. This was many years ago and is not longer relevant.
To be fair in this review, it is my understanding that Westfield and specifically the finance/accounting departments are no longer this way and generally there is a work/life balance.
I thought Westfield was a great company and I enjoyed the majority of my time there.
the people/co workers; great company and good benefits
work/life and unrealistic expectations (years ago at least)
Summarily, the bet benefits at Westfield are the abilities to learn, and working with exceptional team members.
Senior General Manager/Director of Development (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 6, 2018
Westfield was a phenomenal opportunity to grow, with early expeditious job/role advancement and promotion. Team members were collaborative, and the Company gave Team Leaders a great deal of oversight of Assets and Projects.
Lead Visual Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Century City, CA – January 29, 2018
I had a great experience with Westfield with only one exception, managerial decisions are made at a snail's pace due to so many different people being involved in the decisions. Also the different departments and groups didn't seem to communicate with each other very effectively.
Productive, supportive and balanced work atmosphere
Director of Partnership Marketing (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 30, 2017
Westfield provided an environment where hard work was rewarded and the proper support was given to achieve desired results. Management challenged us however, set clear expectations and backed us in order to promote success and goal achievement.
Freelance Photographer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 16, 2017
I was a freelance photographer for Westfield Developments, Events, and Construction in the World Trade Center Oculus and surrounding NYC properties. The best part of the job was getting to network during events with high profile clients.
PMO Lead (contract) (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 5, 2017
For one of the world’s largest Shopping Mall developers and owners, facilitating workshops, collecting requirements and developing project plans to develop and implement a world class leasing system. Coordinated unit, system and integration testing with business users and technical teams
General Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 19, 2017
Westfield's strength is in developing and upgrading malls. They have the best architects and developers on their staff. On the operations side, they take care of their management teams, but be aware, they will sell malls if there are no further development opportunities. Plus some of the executives that came over from Australia have unrealistic expectations of the mall scene here in the US.
Diverse learning opportunities in marketing, commercial real estate, leasing and management. Website management, customer service management, customer comments and complaint resolution, gift card sales management and reconciliation.
Senior QA Engineer (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 12, 2016
This was an insane place to work if you're a QA engineer. They 'fix forward' meaning the developers push to production multiple times a day without any QA of their work. They break the websites daily, but apparently that's ok with them. Very strange place.
Free lunches. Good pay
No processes. It's the worst of the wild, wild west
