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

    Pros

    Small 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.

    Cons

    You'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 ManagementAdvice

    More employee activities !

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in New Delhi

    I worked at CBRE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some remarkable Leaderships in the Mumbai office from 2005 to 2012. And an unmatched Office Services team which set the tone of a culture that promoted zero rivalry translating into an extremely constructive learning and growth oriented environment. A large client base mandated as well as locally generated business.

    Cons

    A conservative outlook where one is given a comission based on no disclosures ensuring a non-transparency since its inception.
    An extremely disrespectful set of Senior Management in the Headquarter Delhi.
    A philosophy to hire based on limited competencies to ensure a small commission payouts thereby ensuring an insulated system of checks.
    Zero HR function since its inception.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While conducting business with immense finesse may be your forte but a series of dissatisfied employees in a company which once had the prime edge based on an excellent work culture should be concerning.
