M&A has not been good for company culture
Lots of bureaucracy now and there is definitely segregation of the popular crowd v. the not so popular and special treatment.
Pros
Wellness Program allows for fresh fruit available daily
Cons
Lots of Bureaucracy

Fast paced and client focused
Strong company that rewards those that put in the extra effort. Busy seasons make work life balance difficult and client focus is top priority, not employee progress.

It was a good company
I liked working for this company. I met a lot of really great people and had a lot of fun. Benefits are good, but it all depends on the property and the client if your in the property management side of things.

Review of Cushman & Wakefield
I oversaw the daily operations of a 250,000 sq. ft. office building with mixed retail. My job included supervising the maintenance and cleaning staff, providing budgets, obtaining bids, and assisting with the tenants' needs. I also oversaw construction to the building and tenant build-outs. Management allowed me a comfortable amount of autonomy, enabling me to manage the building in a way that my previous experience has shown to be successful.

The hardest and yet one of the most enjoyable parts of the job was creatively thinking of ways to maintain and improve the building with a limited budget. I also enjoyed interacting with the building's tenants.

Exciting, interesting and always learning something new
I enjoyed working for C & W. There was always something going on with new properties, new people and new aspects of the job. I learned to always be open to new ideas and learned to push beyond my comfort zone and accept responsibilities for job descriptions outside my normal. I loved working with individuals throughout the company and expressing my ideas to make jobs easier or listening to others ideas.
Pros
Benefits and accrued time off, ability to work from home

Great Company
Great company! Enjoyed working there. I worked in a temporary position but would consider working there again if there was an opportunity available, the benefit package was beneficial and the compensation was great.

Terrible Experience
A lot of this is more the field of commercial real estate management but some was directly my management office and management there. This is not the corporate office but I do feel like they did little to keep me in the company in a bad situation. I wanted to move within the company and felt as though I was blocked somehow from leaving the terrible position that I was put in. Bad management, very unprofessional, harassment, and inappropriate behavior. We had a very high turnover rate and felt like we were left out to dry by the rest of the company. I would not work for Cushman and Wakefield ever again. I know other people have had better experiences the entry point for me in this small management office did not allow for me to experience what the rest of the company had to offer. Although, I did feel completely unsupported.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Bad situation, terrible management, no support in removing myself from the situation

employee minded company
Maintain tenant work orders, check HVAC equipment daily at morning startup.
Learned how to effectively handle contractors/employee.

The manage team generally interested in employee needs and concerns.

Ping Pong Table
To mobilize and deliver our vast knowledge, resources and talent throughout the world on behalf of our clients, and to enable them to make the most informed real estate decisions. A typical work day, opening the office with little supervision, making coffee, checking the voicemail, answering mutiple phone line, checking the microsoft outllook for emails from the tenants, speaking with the cheif engineer regarding any work that needs to take place with each tenant. Building a relationship with the vendors and contractors as well as the tenants. Filing documents, input travel reimbursements, time-sheets, receiving fax, scanning documents, travel arrangements, setting up luncheons, and conference, collating notebooks. I worked with a small group, I only had one Property Manager, One Cheif Engineer and 5 engineers, because I help manage 3 buildings. The hardest part about this position is some one being stuck in the elevator and as and employee your hoping, your able to get your tenant or tenants out. The most enjoyable about this position is working as a team, and getting the job done together.
Pros
free parking, free lunch
Cons
short breaks, full benifits, days paid off, vacation days etc.
