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

    Pros

    The ability to work from home is excellent; the medical benefits are pretty good also.

    Cons

    Favorites are played regarding promotions; Those who are in management roles now do not understand the work that the analysts do; There is not a sense of upper management looking out for their employees; the fear in the COE is that they are looking for ways to cut down on the headcount.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees; Realize what they are giving of themselves to work for you; Value integrity and character in the employees as opposed to those you like. Look at everyone that has been promoted in the past 2 years to ensure they understand the importance of the job.
