    I worked at CBRE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work/life balance with generous PTO and 3 weeks vacation time. Employees after 90 days are eligible for a two day remote.

    Cons

    Pay is way below market. Work load does not justify the amount of pay received. Management is a joke. Most are rude, know it alls. They harp all the time about team work but are actually only concerned about tooting their own horns. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Not only was there no possibility for growth, management does not even encourage promotion within the company. Goal setting is a joke. It is all about how the company can become better with your efforts, hardly anything tangible to actually make you a better employee. The reviews are even worse. It is supposed to be based on your goals but with so much internal moves, your current manager at year end can give you a failing grade for not meeting objectives set by your former manager at the beginning of the year. Say goodbye to your meager increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your management. They are the biggest reason why you have a very high turn-over rate. There is no teamwork when your team leaders are only concerned about their personal performance.

    Pros

    You can make money if you don't question for improvement, just go to work do something and get your paycheck. No scope unless you can do some 'favors' to your manager. Safe place to work if you don't care to grow.

    Cons

    Lot of self focused managers in Infrastructure worth nothing when they go out. All they do is make money and do a shitty job. If you don't know how to 'favor' your manager but want a career growth stay away from this company. The worst part is you will see a lot of lip service, nothing in reality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate the team and focus on retention of the employee as well to promote them rather than just thinking of the salary savings made in hiring a new employee
