Real Estate Administrator (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – April 18, 2018
I was a temporary employee through The Resource Corner, was grateful for a great place to work, perfect location, nice people, learned a lot and completed the assignment with a sense of accomplishment.
In my role, I was responsible for a number of critical items. It could produce very stressful situations. My staff was limited and green which added to the stress. Overall, CBRE is a good place to work. I would have enjoyed seeing my staff develop, but my position was eliminated and my area was split.

It is a corporate atmosphere the employers are very friendly and compassionate about the job. CBRE is a very motivating company and the management are very attentive to employees needs. I see longevity with the company because there is all ways room for professional growth.
Lack of training when I first started, had to learn on my own. Promotion opportunity was based on favoritism, and not on actual experience for the job. Inexperienced new manager then created hostile work environment.
CBRE as a whole, treated employees with respect and professionalism. They were very organized - I learned on my first day.

CBRE really makes you feel valued. They make sure that on your first day of employment you have everything you will need: computer, cell phone, credit card, travel profile, business cards, client profiles, sufficient staff. I really enjoyed my job as a Project Manager. There was a great assembly of diversity. it is so important for a Project Manager to have a positive and respected company reputation to present to the public.
Great company, benefits, reputation.
I had an hour and a half commute to work each day.
I am a maintenance tech in a 500,000 thousand square foot building,responsible for plumbing,electrical,hvac,painting,fire pump rooms ,generators,dock doors and levelers .My take home pay is 630 dollars per week.This is probably the worst place a maintenance technician can work.We have some of the most childish and ignorant managers in the industry.I have seven years of experience.I would probably do better working in fast food.Do not waste your time with these crooks ,I am headed out of this future less rat hole of a company.
The hardest part of the job is that you work for different clients doing outsourced real estate work. Your future is only as secure as the contract with the client. Job stability is not a plus, but CBRE's company values are admirable.
Associate Project Manager (Former Employee) – White Plains, NY – April 3, 2018
CBRE seems like a great place to work. The problem was that I worked at IVI, which was recently acquired by CBRE. The IVI culture was stuffy, cut throat, discriminatory, and hostile. When they weren't meeting their projected revenue gains, my position was excised and I was moved into the Zoning Dept. Here, my talents were not leveraged in the best way, plus, I had to take a 10k salary cut. There was not room for advancement. As such, I left.
They purchased coffee, snacks and yogurt for the office
Construction Project Manager (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – March 29, 2018
Overall this is a great place to work and the company is dedicated to improving outcomes in every aspect of its duties. A little heavy on paperwork and bureaucracy but I believe it stems from good intent and it's somewhat expected with a company of this size. If you want to work with professional dedicated co-workers and are looking for job growth then this is the place for you.
