The work was nice but the corporate culture was toxic for support members
Support Worker (Former Employee) – Alberta – 12 July 2017
Support members were treated as second-class citizens. If you aren't a sales associate in brokerage, you were treated differently. I did not feel valued and oftentimes my contributions were ridiculed. A sales associate once told me that my work did not help with his sales (My work took up to 3 months to prepare and compile for him). Why ask for my work then? I could not wait to leave.
Manager Business Services (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 July 2017
Great company, and great people. work hard and play hard. All offices have been renovated to include sit stand workstations and latest technology. Equips it's employees with the most up-to-date technology and tools.
Great variations in experience between one employee to another
Senior Controller (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 June 2017
Supportive management, however, due to large organization it is very slow in decision making. Some employees love to work here, but some others hate it. Great vacation time allocation, however, not necessarily easy to take the actual vacation time depending on your responsibilities and work load. Medical insurance benefits are just so so. Flexible working hours are allowed. Salary level is great.

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 19 April 2017
They hire you for your trade qualifications but neglect to tell you the truth about the job. Once you start working, you do all the trades but not the one that you know and have experience in. You work alone in a retail environment, they want you to do things you have no knowledge of or experience in. From unblocking toilets/urinals to fire safety and everything else under the sun. They want to turn your home into a parts depot for them. You work alone with little or no support, you must handle all of it, no matter how strenuous or dangerous it is. The work load is massive, the phone, the PDA never stop ringing, you work 24/7 on call. You have no personal life whatsoever. Management is never on the same page, way too many meetings with no clear objective, it's the trial and error method. They grab at straws, try this or try that. If you have service experience, you realize that you are working for amateurs. They're main objective is to save money for their client. You pay the price for that.. Their hiring method is based on lies, smoke and mirrors is their religion.
Account Based Jobs with limited advancement opportunities.
Sr. Manager Strategic Sourcing (Team Lead) (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 April 2017
Account Based Jobs with limited advancement opportunities. Every client has individual team to manage and there are limited budget to hire people therefore, small set of professionals are working to get things done. Overall not a bad company to work with however, after sometime you have to look for other challenges if you would like to grow your career.
Present, Building Operator Critical Environment (Current Employee) – here – 3 March 2017
extremely demanding and good learning curve good team and work environment couple of a*holes pretending that they know how to be managers but it is dissipated as positive thinking and proactive approach from crew.
Enjoyed working at CBRE because the work life balance was amazing. Our office had a certain amount of independence because we were so small. We were able to interface with the client daily and in a less formal atmosphere.
Life work balance
Sometimes the distance from head office was challenging when new programs were brought out.
