    Pros

    People take their work seriously. Loved "Colliers University" training programs given for free. Very structured 8:30-5. Rarely over-time hours needed.

    Cons

    You hit a ceiling if you're on Admin side and not in Sales. Hard to grow salary unless you become a licensed Commercial Real Estate Agent.

    Pros

    Fast paced, some great teams and awesome people.

    Cons

    Be aware that brokers are deceiving. They seem kind and they want to help your advancement into the real estate business, but they just want to use you as a pawn. The Regional Manager of the Prairie division only cares about the numbers. Be warned that they don't have an HR representative in offices, this leads to harassment and illegal termination. Surprisingly, this company has been reported yet. High turn over rate is there because of the way they treat people, not because they are hiring the wrong people. Fun fact! For those who want to continue in the Real Estate business, look to Avison Young, CBRE... they seem to have a cohesive and awesome management program. Every person who has left Colliers and gone with another real estate company have been there for a LONG time. Take this before you apply here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the high turn over rate. Your HR aren't doing there job. There is poor on-boarding, crappy benefits, and poor company culture. Sure you're international, but is it worth it knowing that you can't even retain good people and blame it on the people that you're hiring. Honestly, as the world is changing dynamically, I wouldn't be surprised if in the next 10 years you have trouble.
