    Pros

    They let you do your job and don't micromanage, a refreshing quality that I did not find at the other global CRE company I worked for.

    Cons

    Being at a property, there isn't much comrade tie with any CW folks besides your immediate building team. It would be nice to see everyone besides the holiday party!

    Advice to Management

    Let's have a couple staff meetings for the little people. We all need to hear how great we are once in awhile!

    Pros

    This job challenged me constantly, which I enjoyed. I learned new things on a daily basis. The Work/Life balance was GREAT as the office closes almost all the holidays.

    Cons

    The training. All the new people have to learn from the manual- you need to be a quick learner in order to make it.

    Pros

    With the caveat that I've only been here a few weeks, I've been incredibly impressed with the culture, maturity, and professionalism of C&W.

    Cons

    This is unusual at C&W and unique to the Portland area, but the office is extremely dated and fusty. Needs a refresh.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with the acquisition. Remember the little people! DTZ seems like a fine company, but you have a unique thing going at CW.

    Pros

    Location, access to building gym, cafeteria downstairs

    Cons

    Management is awful. Such a large company but there wasn't any room for advancement. You had to be in with the "right" people to be considered for a new opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Management is a joke. Especially HR. They pretend to have your back but really don't.

    Pros

    Great national intern program, with speakers from different offices/departments giving talks multiple times a week. One of the highlights of the internship.

    Cons

    Interns did not always get to work on the most substantial projects, feel that they were actually contributing to the office.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps develop programs in which interns get a longer-term project to work on for the summer that they can spend more time on.
