    Pros

    They tend to pay fairly well

    Cons

    They have to pay well to keep people. Morale is bad. Focus is on quantity of work, not quality; and there is no rationale thought into whether projects are worthwhile or results are material.

    Pros

    Working with some very talented people. Good benefits package and bonuses when they are available. Interesting assignments.

    Cons

    Management is constantly changing direction, sometimes un-doing things that were just recently put into place. Departments are siloed and IT systems are not intgrated. Workload can be extremely heavy.

    Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Miami, FL

    I worked at Cushman & Wakefield full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    When I started working here, they had good benefits (changed as market tanked). Nice looking office with beautiful views.

    Cons

    Once market tanked, employees had to pay almost $200 per month to park in office building. Promised upward mobility, but nothing ever happened. Lots and lots of favoritism. Since I started working there, there were probably 10 assistants hired and fired within a 2 year period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice and supportive of your support staff. They get crappy pay but work for many different brokers who are mostly on a power trip.

    I worked at Cushman & Wakefield

    Pros

    Given plenty of room to operate, advice available when needed. Mostly colleagues were collegial. Some were absurdly competitive, even in completely non-competitive situations.

    Cons

    At the very top, good leaders. But Peter Principle was in full force, and unfortunately, those incompetent senior mid-levels heads of departments/regions were kept on long after they'd screwed up, destroyed morale, angered fellow employees, etc.,.

    Pros

    Benefits are good but expensive. Good salary for hard workers. Little turnover. Management will make you feel like you're part of the team and does well recognizing top performers.

    Cons

    Poor training, succession planning, resources are sometimes limited. Office culture is good but not lots of room for growth unless you are in brokerage. Work hours can be long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Budget training for the next generation.
