I worked at CBRE full-time

Pros

It looks good on your resume; however, a lot of employers know about CBRE's reputation. Which them becomes a plus. Potential employers know it is one step above a sweat shop.

Cons

Long hours, terrible management and even more so of their managers, no bonuses or raises unless you are in management. Deadlines changed monthly, therefore, making it very, very difficult to hit the deadline. This then leaves a window open for them to dismiss you with that being the cause. My 3 years there seemed like at least 6.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at who supports you and who helped to get you where you are today. Look harder at mid-management level candidates. Some of the ones that I have experience with don't know how to manage their teams, but just know how to play the game. Will throw anyone under them under the bus to save them.

    I have been working at CBRE full-time

    Pros

    Good compensation, decent benefits, good work/life balance, good people.

    Cons

    Extremely slow to make decisions, too little investment in technology, too much outsourcing, technical non-developers will likely lose skills as most time is spent in meetings and on vendor management. Seems to be a lot of burnout and turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in employees
