    Pros

    Decent place to work, Friendly coworkers, Strong brand name

    Cons

    Slow processes, Does not want to manage unrealistic expectations, management needs more managerial training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in training managers. Managing is not a natural skill for all people.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    company is first rate when it comes to supplying needed equipment, training, tools. They give great first impressions. They work hard and i can work side by side with the best of them.

    Cons

    They have a dark side. They play not so nice . thinking you're working for #1 so that counts for a lot. They lack communicative skills as to direction and they tend to give curve balls .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be honest to non management. being two face isn't truthful.

    I worked at CBRE part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Brilliant peers and everyone is there to help. Plenty of work to do yet enough resources and people that nothing gets pushed to a deadline.

    Cons

    Pay not great. CBRE knows how powerful their name is and understands they don't have to pay interns competitively.

    I worked at CBRE full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They are very organized and take care of the details. the new hire training was extensive and employees can take additional classes through the intranet site. I remember getting an email on my first anniversary with a code for a gift. This went away during the recession in 2008 but showed willingness of CBRE to recognize their employees.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to advance in the company as a property manager. If you are doing a good job, the Director does not want you to move. Sometimes you have to leave in order to advance your career. On the sales side this is not the case since the compensation is performance driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow property managers to earn a portion of the commission for lease renewals. This incentive income is a nice bonus and encourages the manager to maintain a consistent relationship with the Tenants and partnership with the leasing agents.
