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

    Pros

    Nice office building in the Gulch, good benefits and PTO, pace of work is manageable if not slack

    Cons

    Very political and corporate work environment. The assistants and non-exempt employees bear the bulk of the workload. Senior Property Managers are generally strong but many junior Property Managers are MIA and are not held to account, leaving the work to the support staff. Upper management is proficient but mostly interested in protecting themselves and don't understand many of the corporate policies which they are attempting to implement. Nepotistic, if you are a friend or family member of someone higher up, you are treated differently than the other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who deliver results, provide more opportunity for advancement and training, and have more accountability for salaried employees

    Pros

    Cushman and Wakefield has a great culture, and amazing employees that work for the company. The size of the firm allows you to work with several different service lines.

    Cons

    The mergers in the past few years have set back some of the technology. It is still a work in progress. The size of the firm can sometimes prolong assignments due to how big the company is.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to continue the direction Cushman and Wakefield is going in with diversity and inclusion as well as promoting within the company.
