    Former Employee - Facilities Manager
    Former Employee - Facilities Manager

    Pros

    Benefits, not sure what else to say

    Cons

    This company does not support their people and their senior management is absolutely awful. They will make you take the fall for their shortcomings. You get written up without actual facts supporting it and their HR department was not even involved. I have worked for a few companies and there is no way the write ups they were giving to their employees - employee at will or not would be acceptable. Talk about unfair labor laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start taking a closer look at your Senior management staff. Don't just take their word on everything and get HR involved before you end up with a lawsuit. If you want your facilities department to prosper and you want to keep your existing contracts - start getting more involved!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The atmosphere is professional and everyone is working hard to accomplish their goals. Day to day work experience varies according to department and supervisor.

    Cons

    The training could be more comprehensive and there is little follow up after hire. Although ease of moving to other departments is offered at hire, it is hard to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the people in the field for suggestions.

    Former Employee - Assistant Research Analyst  in  Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
    Former Employee - Assistant Research Analyst in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    Pros

    - Homely office environment, Very friendly people
    - Good to get started on your analytical skills
    - High-ranking managers are flourished with experience

    Cons

    - Many inexperienced analysts and associates (less than 7 years): Don't expect anything life-changing
    - Only suited to those who like the classic 9-5
    - Consultancy, Marketing and Admin interns were essentially business card database managers, powerpoint and photocopy specialists
    - Research work was very easy but bulky

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Force the interns to present work of high quality and with stiff deadlines. The intern batch of 2013 had a lot more to offer than sitting at their desks all day.

    Former Employee - Property Manager  in  Sydney (Australia)
    Former Employee - Property Manager in Sydney (Australia)

    Pros

    Some good professionals, brand name, image, competitive salary and good exposure.

    Cons

    Weak leadership, lack of vision, vertically integrated and hierarchical

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get much closer to the customers and movements of the market. Middle management (director level) staff in strategic areas need to be reviewed as they lack capacity for vision and anticipation. Staff retention must be addressed.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)

    Pros

    The company is full of smart, real estate savvy people from a variety of backgrounds, and it has an excellent reputation which is helpful for career development. I loved my peer network, and though I'm no longer with the firm (moved), I am still in close contact with many people.

    Cons

    Career development, promotion, pay vary dramatically depending on group, division, your manager. To move ahead in your career here, you must be very clear and assertive about your vision, direction and needs and then ask for them to be fulfilled. Although the company purports to support moving between divisions, in practice it is quite difficult.
