I worked at CBRE full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent company. Great co-workers. Fast-paced work environment. Excellent client base with great exposure to management. Outstanding research and data analysis tools. Interesting client engagement opportunities across multiple properties and multiple industries.

Cons

Very high pressure environment with sometimes unreasonable expectations for performance. Brokers can become fixated upon commissions and become territorial about clients. Limited growth potential due.

Advice to Management

Provide clear career path visibility for new hires.

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

    Pros

    the pay and vacation are decent.

    Cons

    Little to no chance for advancement internally. Consultants rule and employees have no say in how things are done. No guidance or direction from the top, so the business does whatever they want in technology.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people with no experience as managers. Make better use of the talent you already have rather than hiring consultants.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to start your accounting career not in public accounting. Coworkers are decent and mostly helpful. Generous vacation (if your workload ever allows you to take it).

    Cons

    Pay rates are well below industry average, heck even below the bottom 25%. High, high turnover. Poor training. Bottom of the barrel heath benefits. A 1.5% 401K match, again, well below average. Workload always increases, your pay does not.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in proper compensation levels; then turnover won't be so high and people will stay for more than 1-2 years. Hire more accountants and coordinators or ask the do-nothing managers to help out with accounting work. They all seem to be the ones taking the longest vacations, the hour-long lunches, and then leaving at 4pm. Streamline the management structure. There are too many supervisors "managing" one or two accountants. If you pay people what they are worth, you might actually get qualified candidates and not have to fire people.
