    Pros

    Even if you start as an intern, you can work your way up within a relatively short time due to the vast number of departments and business lines that are supported by CBRE. Some accounts can be more demanding than others but those that put in the work will be rewarded. Account contract renewals are never guaranteed but CBRE does an excellent job at getting employees moved to other accounts that are in need. The company also has a great recognition program that makes employees feel valued. Rest assured, CBRE is a company that is growing leaps and bounds. The JCI GWS acquisition is a huge win for the company and will open up even more opportunities. If you end up on an account that you don't like, find another one - they are everywhere.

    Cons

    Medical benefits aren't all that great for the premiums paid (high deductible and OOP even for their 2nd best plan). Accounts never really interact with each other which is a real missed opportunity. Internal networking with low & mid-level managers would be nice but most of the time it's just the upper management that gets those interactions because they know upper managers on other accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Host some events in major cities that will encourage engagement with employees across different accounts, departments, and business lines.

    Pros

    Strong support from upper management and its visionary objective to become truly world class means this, and its stock, is a horse to ride for years to come.

    Cons

    Poor runway for new employees, who often feel lost due to entrepreneurial/brokerage nature of organization (everyone for themselves). Local geographical teams are where the support will come, and maybe that's all that's required in a mammoth organization.

    Advice to Management

    Less transactional and more value-added services. Clients want to feel special as well as specially priced; built-in services as a part of that relationship builds longevity and, ultimately, greater revenue.

    Pros

    Red Vector training platform was very good.

    Cons

    Changed the "playbook" midstream. Noticed a lot of insider trading in May of 2015.

    Advice to Management

    Enough with your daily meetings and trying to reinvent the wheel. Get out in the field and see what is really going on.

    Pros

    Good company, good leadership, moving in the right direction, fun company events, option to work remotely.

    Cons

    Pay & benefits are below the industry standard - Accounting positions. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but find a way to increase pay. You're not going to retain your talent by simply having events.
