    I have been working at CBRE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, CBRE provides a generous amount of time off and the ability to work from home.

    Cons

    There is not much transparency between the different lines of business. It is challenging to know what is going on in Project Development wen you are in Transaction Management.

    Advice to Management

    Strongly consider making opportunities for networking between the different lines of business available for employees. CBRE is massive and available opportunities in different departments should be available.

    Pros

    Good company culture, they try to do things to make everyone feel included, but at the end of the day at that matters is the partners.

    Cons

    Power dynamic, the gap between the partners and everyone else is pretty astonishing.

    I have been working at CBRE full-time

    Pros

    Great culture! Wonderful company for those fresh out of undergrad and industry veterans. The people are the best selling point.

    Cons

    Not great for those in the mid stages of their careers. CBRE doesn't usually pay market value for salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people their market value and give them the title that reflects the job they're actually doing. You have a sizable number of unhappy employees, who are doing work that's several levels above their pay grades and titles.
