    Pros

    This is dynamic, organization full of varied projects, initiatives and clients. Those motivated to roll up their sleeves can really forge their own career path. Colliers provides a unique insight into into local communities with a great perspective into broader regions and global business. Colliers is by far the best global CRE firm to work for or do business with.

    Cons

    The industry as a whole is dominated by self-serving A-type sales force. Organizational administration and governance has many gaps and conflicts — especially in the United States. The multitude of service branches and specializations compete for thinly stretched resources.

    Advice to Management

    Create incentivized goals for support personnel to share in new business wins. Integrate support leadership more into business decisions rather than just being tasked to execute the conflicted goals of leadership. Prioritize U.S. operations and create and communicate content and messaging strategy across the organization.

    I worked at Colliers International full-time

    Pros

    Great staff and marketing teams who are always willing to help each other out. Nice location downtown Seattle.

    Cons

    Management is unprofessional and gossipy. Constantly hearing whispers around the office is standard. Micromanagement is at an extremely high level.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with respect. Give them the benefit of the doubt as they are truly giving you their all.
