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

Pros

Strong player in the global real estate market. Has a strategy for growth that includes multiple disciplines within the real estate sector, such as facilities, project management, critical facilities, along with their traditional brokerage line. CBRE has a strong commitment to training and developing talent from within.

Cons

The contract aspect creates an isolation from many of the benefits you would normally receive. For instance, training is sometimes withheld on global accounts. Although there are opportunities for movement in different markets, the move packages are very weak. Being on an account can isolate talent from the CBRE leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more opportunities for talent identification and interaction with those team members on dedicated accounts. Realize the special challenges they face in trying to deal with two corporate structures, and don't create another online tool to replace personal communication. Break down the vertical reporting, so more than one person analyzes high potential candidates. Continue the great programs currently in place, such as foundations training and Q center courses.

    Pros

    Nothing. Poor benefits for such a large company

    Cons

    What a dreadful experience. If you work at Sprint you will be outsourced to CBRE if you fall under the Real Estate dept. You will be overworked, underpaid, and generally treated like a piece of garbage. Imagine working for a cell phone company but not given a phone for business purposes even though you are expected to be available 24-7-365. If you dont have one you need to pay for one and then they pick up the monthly tab, but you dont own it so you are basically buying a phone so they can overwork you!!!!!!!!Not sure what is like to work at other accounts, but the Sprint account is a horror show and should be avoided at all costs!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that people have options and will explore those options if treated poorly. Turnover has a negative affect on production and morale
