Good company to work for.
BUILDING ENGINEER (Former Employee), Henderson, NVFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: allowed to work at your own pace within time guidelines.
Cons: i was traveling out of my work area for too long.
This company gives you the ability to work without close supervision; you must be a self starter. All of my co-workers were excellent knowledgeable people who did not hesitate to assist when needed.
Work orders were received electronically via a tablet.

Technician (Current Employee), Overland Park, KSDecember 16, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: too many layers
I enjoy my job at CBRE since it allows me to do many different things so each day is different. I enjoy the people that I work with and the location of my office. I have learned that management in a large corporation is very different that a smaller company. I always thought that I was a team player but working for CBRE, I have found out that one is – more... a part of multiple small teams which make up a large team and your leaders may change at anytime. – less

Fun enjoyable place to work with a good work life balance
Valuations Surveyor (Former Employee), Dublin, CADecember 13, 2013
Enjoyable place to work with a good atmosphere. People were very friendly and good fun to be around while still being very productive.

Management were also very approachable. Career progression would have been difficult however as the company was only offering rolling contracts at the time when there.

Life in Atlanta is a bust!
Engineer (Current Employee), AtlantaOctober 31, 2013
Pros: benefits, pay
A typical day is filled with stress, understaffed and under appreciated. Our property was taken over by CBRE 7 months ago. They have used our engineers as a whipping post and do everything to bring in their own management team of women to straighten us out.

Regardless of your knowledge or tender, if your a male, inherited by CBRE you best be looking. – more... They have a plan and it is brutal to experience. You and the men around you are turned from productive, happy, easy going to beaten down and abused. You can't cover all the territory they assign you and do a good job.

While they operate within the limits of the law, it should not be legal as to what they do to beat people down. You may have walked in a man, but you are leaving with little pride and no self-esteem.

Hardest part of the job is knowing so many people with knowledge of the industry will lose hope and give up. It's a mental game to break you. It's not about the tenants, the owners, the employees. It all about CBRE and their elite group of woman who manage and want more control. It's TOP down managed that way. Sell the owners on what they can do. When they can't perform, fire the people who came with the property. Press them, Squeeze them, and you get sour grapes.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the elevator ride down 20 stories to the parking lot at 5:00 while I pray for those like me who loved a job for years and now hate what they
have become.

It's not about women, its CBRE culture and lack of values that bothers me most.

God help those who are suffering. – less
