Amazing environment, no advancement in my field

Researcher (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I have been working at CBRE part-time for less than a year

ProsFriendly co-workers, has open company values, strives to be responsible in the community as a corporation, in my field there is not a clear career path, but immediate management strives to create opportunities.

ConsIt can seem like you are a cog in a corporate giant. Corporate rules and regulations can be restricting. Data entry can be horribly mind-numbing

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a better career path for researchers

Great place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CBRE

ProsIt's a very large company with a great training program. Every one is friendly and willing to help, some one who is just starting, out.

ConsHowever even though it is a very large company, that can sometimes be a con. Some days you might just feel like a number.

Property Manager

Property Manager (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

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

ProsGood company, good training and the people are all very nice. The staff was rather small so I had to do a lot myself which I did not mind.

ConsThird party Management, so if the owners decide to sell the building or switch management then you are out of a job. But that is the way it is with third party management.

Generally a great place to work.

Marketing Specialist (Current Employee)

I have been working at CBRE full-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible work environment, relaxed and laid back atmosphere. Good about promoting within.

ConsGeneral large employer cons. Upper management sees you as a dollar amount and not you for who you are. There's always a worry that you could be replaced at any moment.
