Pros

One of the best reasons to work at Grubb and Ellis is the atmosphere of the working environment. It can be very fast paced and can be pretty exciting. At the same time you also gain a sort of camaraderie with your fellow junior brokers, which can lead to helping each other to finish work every once in a while. The hours are very dependent on how much your senior broker works. The company though is also very willing to let you balance work and your life and you will not entirely not have a social life outside of the office.

Cons

The downsides to working at Grubb & Ellis are mainly concerned in how the field of commercial real estate is in general. There is a strong feeling of competition among all of the brokers which can lead to a lack of information sharing among your colleagues and some brokers get known for holding back information to get ahead. Some of the work of a junior broker is pretty monotonous and if the people in research or interns are too busy that work will be put on you by the more senior brokers. All of this is preet average for commercial real estate in general.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would encourage them to give out some more compliments for good work and also to actually remeber some of the younger broker's names.

    Pros

    A fair team working to make the business succeed. With a good balance of life and business needs, the management team will give you time off when needed but they then expect you to work when the need is there. Management team gives you the opportunity to do your job without micromanaging you to death; however, you are expected to know how to do your job and expect you to set your own schedules to meet the finish dates. If you are accustomed to only doing what you are told, this is not the place for you. You are expected to take general directions and find out how to fulfill those directions.

    Cons

    G&E focuses on the real estate unit to the exclusion of all their other business units. The company is focused on its real estate brokers since this is the basic business of the company. Other business units are fast becoming the consistently profitable businesses and contribute to the bottom line year-in and year-out while the real estate business is a real roller coaster. If you thrive on getting constantly patted on the back, this is not the place for you. A high level of performance is expected from everyone, if you do not deliver to commitments, you will get attention but the pat will be a little lower and aimed at the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all the business units are recognized. G&E is not just a real estate company.
