I have been working at CBRE

Pros

A lot of in-house training; not all of it relevant.
Respectful, professional environment.
Prestigious employer with well-recognized reputation.
A market leader in DC.

Cons

The bureaucracy and red tape make it difficult to deliver service to tenants and clients.
The size of the DC office is such that one must constantly network in order to stay noticed and compete for assignments and promotions. It's easy to get lost in the pack.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perform better information sharing. Middle managers hold even the most minor information close to the vest as though the team is on a "need to know" or not qualified to understand.
