Only One Cubical fire...
Assistant Property Manager (Former Employee), Pennington, NJJune 6, 2015
Pros: A giant bull statue and onsite Starbucks
Cons: cubicle fires, car leaks and daycare regulations
During my time with CBRE, there was no shortage of high paced, attention to detail tasks that would be presented to you during the span of the day. Relationship maintenance was key as was an extremely high level of customer service to onsite clientele.

Abandoned and Forgotten
Building Engineer (Current Employee), Austin, TXMay 30, 2015
Pros: High turnover rate, so always a new face to see.
Cons: Dozen irrelevant corporate emails received daily.
Work as an embedded tech at the customer's location. There is no communication from upper management to my team. When there is communication, it is either from spam corporate emails that have absolutely nothing to do with my job OR something went wrong and a higher manager is coming in to give us a stern lecture OR it is HR trying to set something up, such as meeting/lunch/training which my team cannot attend. That last one is important, because again, it shows the local HR doesn't even recognize my team's job responsibilities or the contractual obligation to the customer.

Structure of employee pay is odd. Straight pass-through from customer. It is like they pay me, but CBRE hijacks the check and puts their name on it, then acts like it comes from them. If the customer decides to freeze my team's pay for years, CBRE will NOT step in to pay the raise out of their own pocket. They'll just place the blame on the customer.

They have no system in gaining new hires when someone inevitably quits. Most applicants are not even remotely qualified for the position. This of course causes desperation and they end up hiring someone willing to work the horrible shift for horrible money. We end up with a lot of bad teammates that either choose to not work, or simply can't because of that individual's own limitations out of their control. This forces the required work to fall on the shoulders of 30% of the team. Good employees are overworked, while so many get a free ride. They won't be fired because of the poor hiring system. Though that means excellent job security.

Upper management – more... NEEDS to recognize what the contract with the customer entails, and what exactly it takes to fulfill those obligations. They need to figure out how to hire and KEEP the employees that allow them to provide the best service to the customer. They need to take ownership of the project and the team. Become a part of it. Otherwise you'll keep bad apples, and all the good employees will come and go, and the customer will end up displeased. – less

Highlight of my career!
Accountant (Former Employee), North Carolina/FloridaMay 21, 2015
Pros: Growth, great pay and good benefits
Cons: Client contract work can be unstable
I worked for CBRE on the RBC Bank account for 6 years. I started in a small role and was promoted over the years to a higher position. The first few years we were a smaller group and had so much fun at work. Over the years our account grew and we went through a lot of changes...some were difficult but I always loved going to work each day. Unfortunately RBC Bank was bought out by PNC Bank and we all lost our jobs. Looking back now, I realize how much I miss my time at CBRE. I really felt I had a "career" and now I just have a "job". I miss my co-workers and I will always cherish the 6 years I worked there.

not people oriented at all
Building Engineer (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKApril 18, 2015
Run like a machine. If they can eliminate someone they do and there are no feelings at all. It is business and if you can be replaced by a robot- good for the bottom line. Typical worldly view.
