    I have been working at CBRE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    CBRE is a leader in its industry and in the way it rewards, manages and inspires its people.
    CBRE has the fortune 500 and many more besides in its client roster. A career in CBRE presents a high degree of reward and personal growth. Expectations are commensurate with 'leader' position in personal and business terms.
    If you have a sound idea or constructive feedback be prepared to be asked to implement and own your own destiny.

    Cons

    Client expectations are that CBRE and the individual are at class leading level so bring your 'A' game (not really a 'con' if you are high performing).

    Advice to Management

    Agility in making CBRE a clear employer of choice.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Solid benefits. Huge company with lots of varying positions and opportunities a they like to promote from within. If you want to leave and go somewhere else, the name CBRE means something in the world of real estate.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Management is ovwrworked and therefor overlooks things, then you might get the blame. The environment is typically professional, but also fairly cutthroat. Brokers are elevated and support staff are sort of looked down upon.

    Advice to Management

    Delicate more. Have a better training program. Make your expectations clear, so when something goes wrong you know exactly where the issue was. Miscommunication is killing you guys.
