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

    Pros

    -The people that you work with
    - Get to work from home 3 days out of the week
    - Management is pretty flexible.
    CBRE as a hole is a great organization

    Cons

    - Cut backs on budgets since we are seen as a cost.
    - small raises
    - No promotions, not a place to build a career at this point.
    - Really heard to transfer out of the department.
    - Favoritism is big in this group, most of the managers came from a different organization and brought their own staff with them.

    Advice to Management

    CBRE as a hole is very good but there are some obviously weak teams with weak managers that leadership needs to focus on fixing.
