    Pros

    Project Management service line:
    Entrepreneurial environment. Not much in place for supporting tools; i.e. playbooks, benchmarking, training, etc. Management mostly left you alone to execute your area of expertise which was a very good thing since they were not local and mostly had no clue as to what needed to be done or how it needed to be done.
    The client had all of the process in place and we followed that successfully. C&W is not a big player in the project management service line and that was the root of the issue.
    Property Management service line:
    Had a great senior manager who was very involved and added much value. This is a solid team and core competency for C&W. Of course they are first a Transaction company and that is the service line that really matters to their bottom line profits. The other business lines are only there to support that transaction business line.

    Cons

    Project Management service line:
    Immediate manager, now gone from C&W, was a train wreck and huge liability from a HR perspective. Upper management, when you did hear from them, would lay out big plans and then you would not hear about them again until the next quarterly meeting where you would find out nothing was implemented and they would again promise to implement.

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to project management, either get fully into the game and grow that business line or get out of it all together. Have the courage to hold your managers accountable to professional standards.
