    Accounting Department--Sweatshop With Nachos!!!

    Current Employee - Senior Accountant in Minneapolis, MN

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

    Pros

    Minneapolis has uber building. Generous holidays. Generous vacation time(if you get to take it). Quality co-workers. Free nachos at times...don't knock them! If you honestly think that you are in the top 10% of accounting talent, things will work out well. Remember, that's one person in 10.

    Cons

    Low salaries. Sweatshop--constant pressure to go faster. Constant. Talking is frowned on...environment is very, very quiet. Fun should not be a major factor at work but there should be room for it which includes a bit of chit-chat. Lack of work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people based on work performed. Don't overload. Management seems confused about what is a proper workload...on the one hand it is based on "points". On the other hand, there are regular e-mails asking how your workload is. If the points were truly accurate, the e-mails would not be necessary.

    Great place to build professional contacts; however, not much room for professional growth.

    Pros

    Very nice office space; up-to-date workstation. Paperless 360-Workplace full implementation. Friendly staff.

    Cons

    Too much red-tape; below average medical benefits and 401(k) plan. Very little room for professional growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has their own upper management so everything takes 2 months to get approved. Hiring process takes an average of 2 months as everything is being approved out of HR headquarters in Texas. Lots of layers to push through to get a definitive answer.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, lots of room for growth, and good benefits. Great job for a recent graduate looking to gain experience.

    Cons

    Client demands can vary. Client transitions create a window of unpredictability within an Accountants workload. Work/life balance is occasionally unpredictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult with Accountants to get an idea of how the workload is being balanced.

    Current Employee - Senior Lead BI Developer GCS in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at CBRE

    Pros

    When I was hired it was a great place to work, As the great managers moved on (CIO Change) we were left with unprofessional, inexperienced managers that ruined the company and the culture.

    Cons

    Every person on the org chart between me through the CIO left. Leaving nothing but un professional and inexperienced leaders that ruined the company and the culture. Last straw was when they wanted me to train my off-shore replacement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trying to make employee's work out of fear instead of motivation will never work as you have discovered in GCS.
    Outsourcing your Business Intelligence has very rarely worked for any company, research it. Hold the executives accountable for the poor decisions.

    Intense work load and long hours most days, but a flexible environment to juggle work and personal appointments.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with a great team of people who were professional and knew their stuff.

    Cons

    The client determines the work load and the management at CBRE has to go with what the client expects - even if they don't agree with it or like it. It was difficult to take time off without getting backed up due to the work load.

    I worked at CBRE

    Pros

    PTO was good, location was excellent, provided public transportation at 100%

    Cons

    BEWARE - SERIOUSLY. They talk a good game, suck you in, but on the inside that is not the case. Their value is RISE R=Respect. I=Integrity (not true).

    Communication is bad. No policies and procedures: it hasn't been for more than 7 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your image right internally before you look outside. You need to hire a third party vendor to come in to truly evaluate you all and who will be objective.
