Productive and fun workplace with diversity culture
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 February 2019
BGIS is a leading global real estate facility management
provider. There are over 5,000 professionals on this team, and who can deliver integrated real estate service.
Moreover, the work environment at BGIS is delightful. At this time, I working as a student project administrator and taken on for this
project will assist in: creating purchase order, cleaning up historical project records, identifying and presenting any ideas for process improvements.
After two terms of co-op, I really appreciate the diversity culture in my workplace and the great opportunity to gain more experiences and technical skills.
Pros
diversity culture

Good company
Building Operator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB31 January 2019
Stable company with decent benefit package.
Decent pay scale
Good vacation/ sick day/ flex day package
Sometimes company feels so big that you are just a number.
Corporate Structure seems management heavy. Systems don't feel stream lined(many layers) and at times the effort and work spent to initiate a simple project takes way longer than it does to execute it.
My Property manager was fantastic but my MTL was a "no show".
Pros
vacation and benifits
Cons
Management heavy.

A great group of people! Enjoyed the time I worked here. Unfortunately, with declining economic times I could not stay.

High level of expectations
Director of Business Development (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON15 January 2019
Typical day of work will include management of a number of issues and follow up to corporate for support. The company tries to show a face of inclusion and support but falls short due to in my opinion, growing too fast. BGIS level of mentorship could be improved and this would be of a benefit to well being and inclusion.
Pros
able to work form home
Cons
long hours

Great Vacation and Health Benefits
Building Operator (Former Employee) –  British Columbia14 January 2019
I work for BGIS a little under two years.

I was involved in the P3 sector, which may differ from the rest of the company. Job descriptions and duties were far off from what you were told when hired. Management expects you to perform duties that you weren't hired or trained to do. I was able to learn alot while employed with BGIS, although most of it was not through training. Brookfield should invest more into their employees, give them the essential training they need to be successful and save on the job. I'd highly recommend giving employees incentives/pay raises when job duties advance with more responsibilities. Not doing so will cause a high turnover. I'd recommend working here, but don't expect this to be a long-term company. Great acento learn your skills and move onto a company that will reward you for your knowledge and work ethic.
Pros
Vacation, Health Benefits, and Safety First.
Cons
Training, Job Transparency, and lack of communication from the powers above.

Maintenance Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON8 January 2019
Like most companies there is good and bad, I've had great managers and not so good ones. luckily in Ottawa there is a lot of option to move around and grow with the company. A lot of great co-workers. Which it was stronger on training from within to move up...

Waste Technician (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 November 2018
BGIS is a property management company that employs workers in almost every field. It is a good place to learn and develop skills. Management often has a high turn over but overall the managers at my location were very helpful. I would recommend this company to any new graduated looking to gain professional experience.

I only worked for one of their Real Estate contract, far from the HO, and it was a sweatshop with no valuable leadership! But I had to occasion to work with HO executive for other contracts and they seemed great! It could have been great but Management made it that people hated to come work there and that's sad!
Pros
Good company
Cons
No real handle on what Manager does what.. and their lack of skills!

Data Analyst, Scheduling & Planning (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON28 August 2018
Workforce is fairly old. Not a "fun" place to work for young professionals. Consequentially not exactly thriving for innovation. Flexible work hours and work from home capabilities is a big plus though.
Pros
Large, growing company
Cons
In markham
