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

    Pros

    Getting a paycheck in a down economy. Working with amazing clients.

    Cons

    Getting a paycheck that makes you wonder why you gave up your unemployment. Working with clientzillas. Company is centered around brokers and real estate managers creating an environment of ego and hierarchy and us vs. them attitude. Bureaucracy gets in the way of serving the client. Politics play a huge role in being successful short and long term. Uber corporate attitude (see: multinational conglomerate.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build teams to achieve better results for the client, company, and individual. (advice: team building as an assignment with a deadline is still work)

    I have been working at CBRE full-time

    Pros

    Some really nice co-workers. Have learned a lot about client accounting. You can work remotely, but this leads to working around the clock.

    Cons

    A lot of hours, with no support. Have work nights, weekends to "get the job done", this can get old really quick!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Distribute the workload more fairly. Look around and see what is going on, who is consistently leaving early, who is staying late?
