    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CBRE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Potential to meet new friends

    Cons

    Pay is SO low - nowhere close to a living wage if you're part of the non-commission office staff. Brokers/sales reps pay part of commissions to the "house" which offers support (like design) - you/your time becomes a commodity. Impossible to make everyone happy. No upward mobility.
