Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 7, 2017
The hardest and the most satisfying is working with clients. Clients can be wonderful and difficult at times. The hardest part is management, they do not give credit for your experience and long hours.
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 7, 2017
There was a lot of turnover. Not very loyal to their employees. Other employees were friendly but people typically do not stay there that long. Executives were not that available. Employees are underpaid compared to competitors.
The company is built for growth if you are willing to put forth a solid work ethic. THIS is a great place to work! I have the ability to make decisions and perform as needed to improve my scope of service.
Great place to work at, beautiful location, great staff and tenants

IT is a pretty decent company to work with. It takes way longer than what promised to really advance in your career with this company. They give you health insurance since day one and also you start accumulating vacation time since day one.
CBRE is a quality company with strong ethics. I really enjoy working for CBRE. I have learned a lot about outsourcing. Overall, management is strong. I work at a client site so my interaction with the local office is limited to my availability to visit, but I do try so that I can connect beyond my account. The hardest part is networking if you don't identify a good mentor and make an effort. I enjoy the flexibility of working from home - but this is not typical of all positions.
A Security officer's life is rather boring and droll and we are paid like it to boot. Can't really give any pros or cons simply because it's just a means to an end. Management is nice and things can change at a moment's notice so flexibility is needed. Other than that Overtime is always welcomed since we're always short staffed. And the only way to make any real money is to work overtime because the wage they start you at is pretty lousy. Benefits are nice though.
TENANT COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 23, 2017
We at CBRE believe in a creative and fun work environment and I feel that is exactly what we give to our tenants day in and day out. I love the team I work with and the tenants who occupy the spaces. It is a great sense of community in our buildings.
Research Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 23, 2017
When I first started at CBRE, my manager was well liked and the environment was one in which I could flourish. My manager left to go to a competitor, and there was a massive shift in authority. Managers are constantly trying to out-do each other, and sacrifice the respect of their employees to do so. PTO is accrued (you can accrue up to 15 days per year, but only a bit over 1/2 a day is accrued per paycheck) - essentially it takes 5 months to accrue 5 days off. This includes sick days. Hourly employees cannot work from home regardless of circumstance. The most enjoyable part of the job was support from my colleagues, and the most difficult was the lack of support about complete apathy of management towards employee satisfaction.
Opportunity for job growth through working overtime.
Limited/No PTO. No sick days. "Favoritism" not based on merit.
