    Pros

    The company doesn't like to let people go, so job security is great as long as you're performing adequately. Management listens to employees and takes their input seriously. Good training, both in company and out. Management is willing to adjust/expand job descriptions if employees want to take on something new. Depending on the teams you work with, hours and scheduling can be extremely flexible.

    Cons

    Pay! The company is very tight-fisted and doesn't pay non-commissioned employees what they're worth- even though the company sends out emails about how the company is doing fantastically well each quarter, raises are non-existent or don't even keep up with inflation. Bureaucracy. There's enough layers of management to be confusing and allow for enough shifting of blame/responsibility that things get lost in the shuffle. Unless you want to be a broker, there's not much opportunity for career advancement for assistants. Overly formal/old-fashioned environment (dress code, attitudes of management and brokers, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they're worth.

    I have been working at CBRE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules somewhat and work from home 1 day per week. My manager is great. Co-workers are friendly. For a coporate world with 450 accountants, it sure is quiet there. Holidays are generous. Teams are helpful. IT dept. is good at helping. HR dept. is helpful as well. Training is extensive with videos, webinars, reading, etc. Not lacking in training. Promotions are there if you'd like to move up. Company is constantly growing. Lots of Teams are forming. You can move around from team to team or promote to upper level.

    Cons

    Pay is much lower for Staff Accountant than other companies pay. Too much with processes and learning. Too many different softwares to know. Some Upper Management are stressed out and some have egos. That goes in any company though. Some Upper Management are newer and not experienced as much as I'd like to see. Some Upper Management micro-manage, but again this happens everywhere if they are not experienced. This is bound to happen in a large company with many different managers and people.

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to see more team spirit from Upper Management instead of micro-manage and giving orders and telling other what to do and how to do it. Be more friendly when approaching workers. Relieve your stress somehow.
