    I worked at CBRE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great big name brand commercial real estate company to have on the resume. Everyone knows who CBRE is.
    -Great office space (at least where I was). All equipment, computers, furniture
    and location was top of the line.
    -Great training structure (if you are on the right team)
    -Access to an insane amount of data and resources

    Cons

    -Can be really hard to move up. The top producers really control just about everything
    -Can be competitive and some seem to just look out for themselves (but this is at all brokerage shops). CBRE is pretty good in contrast to others.

    Advice to Management

    Help the junior guys move up in the company more. Actually support them.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for CBRE for 8 years. My fellow co-workers were very kind and helpful. Getting access to training materials were very easy on the website and employees from other locations were always willing to train you in areas that you are weak. I would recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    Getting a promotion is difficult. If you are great in the position that you are in then they will not help you move on to a higher position. You also work 9hrs per day instead of 8hrs.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring new employees to fill top job openings it would be great to give promotions to current employees who are hard working.

    I have been working at CBRE full-time

    Pros

    Excellent top rated company; fair and all business. CBRE is diversified and well balanced. There are multiple disciplines avaiable. Rated highly by rating sources.

    Cons

    Cons are few. Teh company is diverse as stated and that can be an impediment to finding a match for your skills, although the job search system is very good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Strategy development and transition to execution is a strength and definetely a string differentiator. Diversity is also a strength.

    I have been working at CBRE full-time

    Pros

    GWS is an outsourcing business for corporate clients that need Real Estate Services. I sit onsite of the company that contracts with CBRE. Even though I am not based in CBRE offices, there is a strong sense of being a CBRE employee that comes from managements relentless belief in "RISE values." There's a lot of room to grow.

    Cons

    There aren't as many resources as necessary to "find your path." It definitely take self-motivation and self-advocacy.

    Advice to Management

    More mentorship programs and encouragement to try new things after being at company for certain period of time.
