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

    Lots of opportunity to grow and a lot of support for exploring new avenues. I was on a client account and enjoyed working with my team and joking GWS calls with other peers around the world on other accounts sharing experiences and advice.

    Pros

    Benefits here for an in house Security Officer are amazing, 401K, PTO, Holidays, Enough overtime to satisfy your hours

    Cons

    The only problems here are the lack of pay and the lack of motivation to want to move up. Why? There is no way to move up. The only position above you is Security Director.

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

    Pros

    Company culture is great.
    Company offers lots of great free training
    Company is always looking for ways to utilize technology to stay relevant
    The company is very inclusive lots of women and people of color working within the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes you can get stuck in one position. It can be difficult to work your way up in the company.
    Management has their obvious favorites.
    Although staff and employees are very diverse, upper managements is still very much dominated by white men.
    In staff positions, if you get put on one team, you can get stuck working on that one team with no option for movement to other teams. You literally have to find new departments to work in if you want to grow even then it may just be a unilateral move.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of very highly educated and talented people working as staff. Invest in them, those who want to put in the work to learn more and move up should not be pigeon holed into one role. Cultivate the talent you have within your company. Management likes to say they have an open-door policy. However, it can be difficult to get face time with them and when you do they seem to forget the items you discussed once you've walked out the door.

    Locations world wide provide opportunities to grow wherever you want to be! Diverse training classes provide tools to further your career!

    Initiate a more hands on approach to training to make employees more at ease with the company websites. Increase pay to be more inline with competitors. The best people in the industry deserve the best pay in the industry.

    Pros

    They are #1 at what they do, so it's a company always growing and improving.

    Cons

    Individual offices don't all function the same and so what you love most about CBRE might not be as represented in a smaller market and in a smaller office.

    Advice to Management

    They should have to go through extensive training in CBRE's vision and goal for their employees. They need to figure out a way to really create the environment they want within every single office, so that each one is an accurate and positive representation of the brand.
