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

    Pros

    Nice people to work with: Fun, intelligent, hard-working and reasonable. Offered a competitive salary and moderate benefits. Many opportunities to develop your career to other areas.

    Cons

    Implementation of CBRE services at existing company was rushed and chaotic. Roles were poorly defined: I was hired as a technical lead for two major sites, but in calls not involving my line manager, this was expanded to six major sites and then all of North America (without offering any change to my salary).

    Tasks that I was told early "this won't be your job" continued to fall under my purview and even expanded.

    Nobody at CBRE went to bat with the client (my previous employer) to address services I could no longer provide, ergo I was stuck doing my current job, my former job, and a job I'd been promoted out of 4 years prior.

    Week-long workshops to map processes are constantly disrupted by attendees taking unrelated conference calls, which means things have to be repeated and reworked. Key stakeholders with the client were mismanaged, not included early enough in the decisions, and then angry by the time they felt they were being handed solutions they did not understand.

    Employees who all need the same information were not included in the right workshops - for example, a workshop for transitioning from client employment to CBRE invited me, but not my colleague in the same situation at the same level and in the same group - seemingly arbitrarily. Other workshops occupied entire days without requiring my involvement or input, which is poor planning.

    8 months after my departure, a colleague with whom I worked very closely wrote to tell me, "Be glad you left. I keep hoping it will improve but it seems to be getting worse each day. Very toxic right now. It is a finger pointing fest. Most stressed I've ever been."

    Advice to Management

    Slow down, take time to plan better, be less aggressive with implementation. Define roles better and stick to the roles you assign. Rushed work is not quality work, and forcing people to meet impossible deadlines is what creates the blame game my colleague described.

    Its a company. They do company things. I go home at the end of the day and I like my job. Enough said.
