    I have been working at CBRE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    CBRE is the number one commercial real estate services firm. The company's status gives it the ability to reinvest in its employees through training opportunities, merit increases, etc. The company is global with over 34,000 employees, yet at the local market level, it feels like it's own smaller company with the advantages of a large organization.

    Cons

    I don't see this as a "con," but some might so I will list it here: the company is continually evolving, changing, and growing. This is a benefit to employees to allow for continuous growth opportunities. If you don't like change, you may not be comfortable with this platform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in your employees - it leads to loyal, happy employees who will work hard for the organization.

    I have been working at CBRE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good management, fair pay, decent health insurance and 401k.

    Cons

    Some clients on certain accounts get away with treating CBRE employees badly while little is done to step in and correct it. It can be very stressful at times. You will bring work home with you and be on call to deal with high maintenance clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
    Bring tuition reimbursement back.

    Current Employee - Accounting Coordinator in Bloomington, MN
    Current Employee - Accounting Coordinator in Bloomington, MN

    I have been working at CBRE as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I could be bitter, but this employer really invests in their staff and follows a modern approach (ie address free work stations, morale committee monthly activities, green ideals, etc)

    Cons

    If you're not an accountant or don't want to be one, the Bloomington, Mn office might be hard to map out a career path... But the overall feeling of employer investment in staff and creativity will help.
