    I worked at Cushman & Wakefield full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    C&W has been around for a long time and now has a strong global presence. They tend to hold on to good talent as long as possible and offer excellent benefits packages.

    Cons

    Like pretty much every other company, they're ownership can change hands which may lead to reorganization, ergo shuffling of jobs, locations or layoffs.
    They tend to hire contractors rather than full-time positions.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I can think of.

    Pros

    Strong brokerage firm - especially post-merger they have lots of offices and reach nationally/worldwide. You will get exposure to good deals and clients. If you want to go into the ownership side it's a good bridge.

    Cons

    My role was as a capital markets analyst/associate. You need to understand the role is a churn and burn grunt-work type role. That's just the way the business model works - senior brokers have relationships and shake hands, young gals & guys do the real work. After a couple years you either transition to become a broker (1 out of 10 do this) or use your experience to move to the client side (9 out of 10). So it involves long hours and being overworked. Some shops are less demanding, but you likely aren't working with the same caliber of clients & deals . Worth noting that every role here (leasing, project management, etc.) is very specific so they could have a totally different setup. Leasing folks basically shake hands and schmooze all day, so that's a different world.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the young people to meetings as much as possible as that makes all the difference in morale. It did seem like we were often understaffed by one or two analysts, but generally no major complaints.

    Pros

    Food was free and the venue was really nice

    You have to know someone to move up. Hours and pay are suspect.

    Advice to Management

    No clue on quality employees. They will hire anyone.

    Pros

    Good people, large company, flexible work environment

    Cons

    No one seems to know what they're doing, and everyone is completely overwhelmed. Hands-on training is non-existent- expect to get thrown into the fire.
