    Pros

    Ample opportunities to advance with a great team vibe. CBRE is a very large company, but you don't feel like a small fish in a big pond. Everyone's position is essential to our success.

    Cons

    There's have been a few negative changes in the benefits since I started a year ago, but otherwise there aren't too many negatives. I do wish we had the opportunity to work from home more often.

    Advice to Management

    Working on a large account such at Microsoft, I think it would be helpful to have a more comprehensive explanation of all the different groups/teams and their duties and scope of work.
