    Top 10 Commercial RE Firm

    Aug 21, 2022 - Associate Vice President 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Colliers is an international company with a large brand name and provides employees the ability to grow internally. The company has good people and a good culture. The local leadership is great. They are active in a diverse range of asset classes which allows for a broad coverage of almost every aspect of commercial real estate. This can allow for internal referrals and the ability for colleagues to open doors and make introductions. The company also has good sales training and an online library of sales classes. Overall the company has a good reputation.

    Cons

    Offices are mixed between privately owned under the brand name, and those owned by corporate. The company's internal systems and processes could be better. This is more pronounced for sales agents who need to find business and create marketing materials. Agents need to create their own CRM system, find leads, create a marketing template and figure how to effectively market the property. The company hires good marketing talent to help do this, but it's up to the agent to play project manager. As a result, the company does well in the private capital space but is not well known for larger institutional business. In recent years, corporate management has taken steps to increase profits by cutting back on resources that promote growth and adding more to the agents out of pocket costs. Corporate management also added layers of complexity by moving everyone's office phone lines and conference call lines to a cell phone app which caused thousands of agents to be unable to effectively answer and receive calls due to technical issues, lag issues, dropped call issues etc.

    Large Company, Lots of Opportunities

    Nov 16, 2022 - Marketing Coordinator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Large network of professionals across the globe and US, so there are many opportunities if you enjoy the work. - They were open to utilizing skills and expanding projects you work on based on your interests. - They supported continuing education and involvement in external organizations.

    Cons

    - Salary was average but not competitive. Earning a raise (beyond 3%) was difficult. - Promotions did not include raises, just title changes. - The type of management styles are dependent on the state you are working in. Very traditional vs progressive.

    Very high turnover in Southeast Development Services/ Project Management Group

    Nov 5, 2022 - Project Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overall, the company seems good. They have a lot of good resources, and decent benefits. Their brokerage group are good to work with.

    Cons

    The Southeast Real Estate Development Services/ Project Management team has a very high turnover rate. They are a newer group within Colliers, and are having major growing pains. They struggle with keeping people for longer than 6 months to a year. There seems to be a lack of transparency with roles and responsibilities prior to employees joining the company. Wouldn’t recommend this group within Colliers.
