Great work environment- maybe not the best pay scales initially.

Transaction Management Group (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at CBRE full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSmall teams- so there's more exposure to different areas and you're given a free reign to go about your work & take initiative wherever you want.

ConsYou're restricted to the IPC & real estate sector, and the pay isn't the best at the beginning- takes some time to get there!

Advice to Senior ManagementMore employee activities !

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
