A complex company, with a future focus.

The future for Brookfield Properties team members is very exciting. The company is complex with many divisions and moving parts allowing for endless growth and advancement; however, experiences vary depending on where you work in the company. In my experience, every day is exciting and different, the people are incredible and the opportunities are endless. It's a great place for anyone who likes to continuously learn and work with/build relationships with new people.

Possible to grow

Most of the staff were great, but some were very amateur and it were affecting others in a negative way. For example being constantly late for their shift, and management were not willing to address this issue. There’s possibly way of recommending yourself for one of the offices on your secretary replacement hours.

Pros

Clean environment

Cons

Inflexible schedule

Share your experience to help others

Stay away

Brookfield Calgary is not an ethical employer, the workplace if riffle with interpersonal problems, underhanded tactics, gossip and covert racism. Managers at all levels with the organization are inept to deal with the problems and prefer to fire people who speak out. Don't even waste your time applying.

Not real security and treated like children

This company is the worst to work security for. They hire guys with high education but no security experience . They're all scared of the homeless. Maybe in their countries they received diplomas but most of them are complete idiots. In fact I've never met more stupid People in all my life. You're not allowed to put your hands on trouble people. You instead stand there while being berated until the police arrive. The security manager is the dumbest of all.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Poor management, work with idiots, not allowed to talk to other guards

Great people!

Great people to work with in a busy and productive environment. Yearly events to attend such as Christmas get togethers and playing together at the REC room in Deerfoot Mall. Low turn over with satisfied and enriched staff.

Do not work for the Business Technology Group(BTG)

One of the worst companies I have worked for. The relatively new IT department they have created in order to cater to manage the IT applications and IT infrastructure of the North America business teams is run by very incompetent directors and VP. The management does not even have a proper understanding of the PMO ecosystem and hires very incompetent people. The Directors & VP in this department do not have any management experience and denigrate their subordinates. Most of the time people in this department do not have much work to do as there is no proper oversight. The attrition rate for a department that has been in existence only for a couple of years is quite high and most subordinates have a very poor opinion of the way things are done in this department. Being a commercial real estate company they can afford to do a sloppy job as money is not really a concern here. So you see many applications on-boarded and after a couple of months off-boarded. I found it mind-numbingly boring since there was no higher vision in running this department and people were removed from projects indiscriminately. Most people in this department have very little experience or skills.

Toxic place to work that is stuck in the past and will not appreciate you

Toxic work environment that doesn't appreciate its employees and has a very high turn over for managment. Your performance is not judged on the work you do. HR department is too busy hiring people to replace people that they have fired or who have quit that they hardly do anything else.

Worked here for 5 years, in two different jobs. Loved both of them. Some management styles were difficult to deal with at times but for the most part every day was a good day. Would definitely consider working for Brookfield again.

Pros

Great environment/culture

Cons

Low salary for job expectations
