    I have been working at CBRE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, nice co-workers. Good family life balance. Career opportunities and movement for those who seek it. RISE values

    Cons

    Platform/Corporate support to the account level is inconsistent and disorganized. Corporate politics. For a company of this size and profitability, employee benefits (especially health and well-being, 401k) should be better. Benefits are fairly standard.

    Advice to Management

    Mid-level managers need more support, training and resources. Employee retention is an issue as wages and compensations are stagnant in our growing and competitive job market.

    Pros

    Leadership that cares about your professional/personal growth.
    Support from all levels and all accounts, just have to reach out and ask.
    The ability to move around from Account to Account or fro GWS to platform.
    Talented and hardworking colleagues!
    Values their people and talent! Invests in you!

    Cons

    If you are on a small account, it could get lonely.
    It could be confusing initially to learn both CBRE and your account's procedures and processes.
    On account, you must adopt their ways.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for advancement. Depending on your office location, CBRE can be an amazing place to work and get recognized. The company observes many holidays and will usually give a half day before each one. Great work/life balance and many functions for networking. If you’re part of a great team, it won’t even feel like work!

    Cons

    Little to no training. They rely heavily on online modules to answer any questions you may have. It can be a great resource for refreshers, but terrible tool to train new hires.

    It all depends on management, but some offices can be miserable if you’re with a bad team.

    Advice to Management

    Please implement an in person training program for new hires-it will help immensely.

    Keeping around poor management can cause great employees to run the other direction.
