Office setting. Cubicle work environment.
Senior Transactions Coordinator (Former Employee), St. Louis, MODecember 14, 2015
Pros: Flexibility, security.
Cons: Frustrating system with several road blocks and the inability to use creativity to solve problems.
Cushman and Wakefield is a great company, and if I would have stayed in St. Louis, I would have stayed with the company. There is a company affiliated with the Cushman and Wakefield alliance, here in Austin, but unfortunately, there was no available position.

Difficult but rewarding work environment
Associate (Current Employee), East Rutherford, NJNovember 29, 2015
Pros: High-income potential
Cons: Your income is highly dependent on the clients you generate
In brokerage you are usually placed within a brokerage team. One's experience is highly dependent on your team leaders. An Associate's main role is to develop new business. This includes learning the market, walking buildings with prospective clients, doing research on companies in your market, networking and a lot of cold-calling to generate new meetings and clients.

It is certainly a very cut-throat environment where most do not succeed. But there is a lot of upside. I think the best thing about the job is that you learn a lot very quickly and that you get a lot of exposure to C-Level executives in a wide range of industries.

Great Team Building
Office Coordinator (Former Employee), Omaha, NEOctober 8, 2015
Pros: Benefits, team building events, location.
Cons: Inability to use creativity at the particular property I was at.
There were a lot of team building activities which, overall made the everyday vibe a great one. Working closely with my colleagues helped when brainstorm sessions, or problem solving needs would arise. Everyone had the same common goal and was eager to help each team member meet it. The company is family oriented, something that is very important to me. They are flexible and understanding of life situations and more than willing to offer a helping hand. I was honored to witness some of the selfless acts done by my fellow co workers in times of need for others, not only in our company, but in the community. One of the best things this company offered was one VTO day per year. A paid day for volunteering.
