Maintenance Planner (Current Employee) – Midland, MI – November 17, 2016
Typical work day always starts with a safety meeting, from there we get our daily tasks and are able to speak to management with any concerns we may have. This is a company that is wanting you to further your career and climb the ladder. Hardest part of the job is being able to complete the tasks assigned to you that day on time with all the restrictions on certain accounts.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Conshohocken, PA – November 18, 2016
It is hard to get motivate to come to work everyday for this company. In the department I work in we haven't been properly staffed for more than two years. Managers and Supervisor will listen to you and disregard any of your ideas to make it a better work environment. Many will tell you it's even hostile.
The benefits are absolutely horrible. You must meet a deductible before the insurance will pay for anything. You only come to work here if this is your last hope of finding work.
Senior Level II OIC (Officer In Charge) (Current Employee) – Houston, TX 77002 – June 7, 2016
Typical Day At Work on the night shift 11pm-7am Building perimeter patrols looking for potential safety issues for the public and tenants. Floor Checks walking every floor of a 71story office building in downtown Houston checking bathrooms for leaks, overflows, incapacitated tenants/visitors/employees. Garage Patrols checking for transients, plumbing issues, mechanical rooms. Sunken Plaza/Tunnel Patrols for transients, safety issues, water leaks. Opening the tunnel in the morning. Elevator monitoring, entrapment rescues. Management can be petty and unsupportive. Training is a constant with training videos and tests required to be taken each month. Co-workers are encouraged to tattle on one another which causes unnecessary bickering and infighting. Most enjoyable part of the job is the paycheck and time off.
Pretty building to work in. Smart uniforms.
Management/Corp.culture, low wages and puny insignificant raises
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – December 7, 2016
From every aspect I'd say this was my favorite job I've had to opportunity to work at. Excellent people, all very respectable, driven and amazing people to work with. Management was encouraging and appreciative. Compensation was just fine with me. The atmosphere was great too. Overall, a wonderful place to work.
Sr. Building Engineer (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 12, 2016
Work onsite a pharma company. CBRE acquired a portion on JCI that I worked for. They are a real estate company and don't seem well suited to understand and support bio science workers who aren't supporting a building. Changing hands of company has been rough. Benefits are OK; JCI was better. Pay is good, lower managent good but upper management is out of the loop and clueless at times.

Real Estate Accountant (Current Employee) – Bloomington, MN – February 28, 2016
The work load is based off a point system. However, I have had more than one property that was way under pointed. The workload stays strong, when you loose one, you get another one. If you have a family, this place is not for you. Managers do not understand why you need to leave and pickup your kids from daycare at the end of the day. Long days for accountants and even longer for Sr accountants and managers who work all nights plus all weekend long. Horrible turn around based on over load of work, unrealistic deadlines, and high stress.

Poor health benefits, high stress, over bearing work load
Typical workday includes team meetings, calling, emailing, speaking with producers and clients. Management is good but it is very entrepreneurial work. Analysts work for the Producers, salary plus bonus. surrounded by qualified co-workers who work hard. Hardest part of the job is the hand holding of clients and getting paperwork in on time. Most enjoyable is the personalities of the office, bonuses and prestige of the company.
Positive, smart work environment, prestigious brand, bonuses
Poor office space, hand holding clients to finish paperwork.
Property Management Company that I worked was processing work orders from The Hartford Financial Services.
Clients would call or submit a work order for their location for temperature issues, plumbing, elevators not working. Light bulbs need to be replaced. Any property issues I would process the work order and contact the Landlord / Tenant of that location. I would also follow up with the client to make sure that the request was completed to their satisfaction.
Management was easy to work with. They had your back on any decision that you made.
Co-workers were also helpful we worked as a team. Communication was the key to make the workplace pleasant.
