    I worked at CBRE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They offer employees discounts and a good amount of vacation time, etc. They're good at providing employees with updates of how the company is doing, plans for the future, and their infrastructure is fairly easy to understand and navigate.

    Cons

    Career advancement lacking. You cannot really grow without either changing jobs or business lines and that can be almost impossible since there is prejudice between the lines of business especially in brokerage. Many people are hired into the brokerage team through nepotism, cliches, or favoritism.

    Company is only culturally diverse at the bottom rungs of the organization which typically are the janitorial, facilities, and security personnel. Upper management is primarily all white men.

    Medical benefits are significantly lacking. I found it to be more cost effective to purchase medical coverage on my own and I was also to get a better plan that covered more than what the company was offering. For such a large company, it definitely raises some questions.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring one or two white women into executive leadership does not qualify as "culturally diverse." Get rid of the nepotism, sexual bias, and racism and you'll have a better more well-rounded work force and company as a whole.

    Also, take care of your employees by offering good medical coverage. A healthy employee is a happy employee and one that is more likely to do a good job and stay with the company.

    I have been working at CBRE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements are a plus when applicable and the compensation is pretty good. They also offer an employee discount on personal cell phone service and other discounts.

    Cons

    Their medical plan is flat out lousy for such a large company. I had to actually go and purchase a plan through the health care marketplace since the company plans covered little to nothing at all.

    They also claim that there is opportunity for advancement, but that's really not the case. It's all on who you know and company politics. I've seen many people not follow proper hiring procedures to get their family and friends hired.

    Many of the online systems that we use are extremely slow and resources are scarce. They say they're investing more into the systems that we use, but little has been shown to prove this.

    Advice to Management

    Just review the cons section.
