    Standing Still

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA (US)

    ProsA lot of training and support, especially for new hires.

    ConsAs technology expands, CB is trying to stay on the cutting edge and jump in front of many other companies. The problem is, that with each of these expansions, there is a trickle down cost to the independent contractors (sales agents) in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop increasing the amount of $$ taken form each agents profit. We spend so much time and energy on our clients, in the field with them and behind the scenes of transactions making sure we get from showing, to sale to close. I often feel like I make minimum wage when I add up the hours worked on a sale and look at the actual commission made.

    Positive experience at Lincoln Park Plaza, but lack of a recycling program was discouraging.

    Contract Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsOutstanding facilities and free Starbucks coffee. Catered lunches on Thursdays for employees was also a plus. Management smartly used these lunches to incentivize agents to come to the office to attend weekly continued learning seminars.

    ConsAsked many times for management to hire a recycling service to no avail. Unbelievable amount of paper thrown into trash cans.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the weekly lunches, but listen to employee's concerns about the lack of a recycling program.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
