Pros
  • That is true, however, for nearly all sales/leasing careers in Commercial Real Estate (in 3 reviews)

  • Great culture (especially w/in the consulting practice) and very client-oriented (in 4 reviews)

Cons
  • Upper management is relying on one guy in retirement age with limited knowledge (in 3 reviews)

  • Lack of leadership in many offices - they are concerned with lining their pockets not running a business to the benefit the client (in 2 reviews)

    I have been working at Cresa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is really nice and easy to get a long with. Hours are great, with the perk of getting out a little early on Friday. Show their appreciation to employees with random thank you gift cards and end of year bonuses (dependent upon performance). Very big on contributing to the community.

    Cons

    There are not very many opportunities for growth. There seems to be a gap between "brokers" and "admins". Additionally, "team spirit" seems to be lacking among the staff. Behind on technology.

    Advice to Management

    Consider about hosting events where you encourage team spirit that involves the brokers and admins. This way you can bridge the gap between the two and it will help build a sense of teamwork. Additionally, consider investing more in technology that will help you compete with bigger competitors.
