    Pros

    The opportunity to learn and participate in various areas of the real estate industry along with tremendous learning opportunities. The company is the largest real estate services provider in the world with an extensive network of offices that will provide the oppuruntiy to relocate while staying within the company.

    Cons

    Not very flexible in terms of handling business or very direct and/or personal in their approach. It is the CB way or no way. Most of the learning opportunites are online and they are not supportive all the time in terms of personal growth and sharing of ideas/information. Depending on which service line you are involved with and whose group you fall under there may not be alot of chemistry and cohesiveness. I would not reccomend being middle management, rather upper management or an employee. Also the paperwork is insurmountable. There is literally a form for a form. Not to mention the ever changing procedures as well as guidelines that do not make for a consistently productive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more responsibilities to middle management as well as opportunities to succeed and be more innovative in terms of the way clients and business are handled. Be more of a team leader and less of a director. Allow employees to do their jobs and allow them the independence to get it done and in doing so provide them with any neccessary support needed in obtaining the neccessary resources. In short let the managers do their jobs the best way they see fit, while staying with the corporate protocol, to meet the clients goals and objectives.

    Pros

    independence and freedom to make on the spot decisions. very independent environment that allows you to plan your work. CBRE will allow you to develope in very specialized areas and you must define your own career path.

    Cons

    communication and technology cbre seldom invests in technology for its employees. most is antiquated and could use upgrading on a scheduled basis.

    Advice to Management

    open the doors to a team cooperative environment and develope a mentoring program, with identified career paths. A mentoring program would go far with a senior leader to provide guidance and structured steps to achieve success and develope pride within associates. Key developement of professional skills is essential for employee retention and for reducing expense in the aquisition on personnel. Training should be accessible and deliberate not inconsisted and sparce.
