    Great Company - Cushman & Wakefield

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Property Manager  in  San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Property Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Cushman & Wakefield full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I started as a property manager and was promoted to nicer properties as I proved my value and experience. I had four supervisors during my career and three of them were wonderful to work for. They were supportive if I reached out for assistance, or needed professional advice. I had a great experience and will always be grateful for my time there.

    Cons

    The work-life balance was poor due to heavy workload, but that is to be expected in this industry. You must trust your own experience because people will not always have a "company" way of doing something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize how day-to-day tasks are to be completed and filed so that it is easy to walk into another taking over a position.

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial atmosphere within a company that is one of the industry leaders globally. Many of the people here are great too.

    Cons

    Very competitive atmosphere with many brokers within the company willing to throw each other under the bus for the next deal. Unless you are aligned with the right team you'll find that management won't show much support for junior brokers. Also a very old school mentality as to how to conduct business. Very stuffy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the talented junior brokers or you're going to lose them to one of the other big brokerage firms.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Cushman & Wakefield

    Pros

    Great company with many options for young employees. I came here with very little experience and ended up learning way more than I could have imagined

    Cons

    There is a lack of support when it comes to transferring or growth within the company. Not saying that its not possible but the company is very saturated and hard to move up that corporate ladder

  11.  

    It's a nice office and room for growth, but a rat race.

    Pros

    Nice office, always busy, and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Expect you to know, hard to do when you've never been in the industry. Not willing to take time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Person should be trained more by executives, not fellow employee.
