    Global company that has name recognition.

    HR community has some wonderful and supportive people. However, senior management is cut throat and dishonest with it's own HR team. Lack of professional growth and support.

    Stop being fearful of your own job. Be a leader!

    I worked at CBRE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a stable, growing organization with many opportunities within the company

    Cons

    It was a larger corporation and sometimes harder to implement newer ways of adding to the existing processes. Also, harder to move up in the company, a lot of corporate politics involved, theatrics, etc.

    Advice to Management

    They should treat their employees better, not like disposable (replaceable) beings...although everyone is replaceable, employees should not perceive this from management

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

    Pros

    Large company, exposure to many fortune500 companies through exposure as vendor. Great hands on experience and large teams.

    Cons

    Lack of connection to upper management outside of each site or the offsite HR. Minimum benefits.

    Advice to Management

    HR should make more of a connection and job growth should be a topic. Directors should conduct more skip levels since they are not physically present to observe their management. This is a common pain for employees.

    Pros

    Great company to have on resume. Every site/client is different so depending on client you can have a great experience.
    CB alow for flexible schedules which is a big plus.

    Cons

    No support from HR or upper management. If you have an issue that needs their assistance, you are completely on your own. You will be completely slammed with managing your building but CBRE will also expect you to implement a lot of their processes. Again no support.

    Advice to Management

    Give managers support, don't roll out new processes you expect to be implemented without explanation.
