    I have been working at CBRE as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great guys, good working experience in CRE, a very well respected firm with a international brand and many networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is really really bad for the internship - only improves when you become a full-time employee. The experience is worth it though.

    Advice to Management

    No advice

    Pros

    CBRE is a great place to grow and develop. There are tons of opportunities all over the world if you know what you want to pursue.

    Cons

    It is a large corporation and change sometimes takes a very long time.

    I worked at CBRE as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to big name clients as an intern (worked on one of the largest video warehousing companies in the world). Awesome leadership and great group of guys to learn from. Tons of locations and departments all across the world as you grow with the company.

    Cons

    Pay could have been better for an intern. Limited upward mobility in the smaller branch offices.

    Advice to Management

    Pay interns better but other than that, nothing

    I have been working at CBRE as an intern

    Pros

    CBRE is a great company to work for, particularly as an intern, as they have exposed me to numerous areas of Commercial Real Estate and have gone out of their way to teach myself and the other interns about other opportunities with companies that are not CBRE.

    Cons

    Being an intern, there are certainly times when I have limited work to do and find myself searching for things to fill time (like filling out this review).

    I worked at CBRE full-time

    Pros

    Excellent training and great internal resources.

    Cons

    Health benefits are too expensive for brokers to go through CBRE, must use third party to avoid giving up an arm and a leg.

    Advice to Management

    More humility and less ego.

    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.
