Good place to improve skills

I worked on service center team. It was a good experience. I learned how to use different systems and it helped me to improve my English skills. They should share more information about the company.

Supportive team

I had a great working experience at CBRE. My manager was extremely supportive, interested in my career development. Her door was always open to discuss any concerns I may have had.

Friendly Environment with super approachable management

It's a good job with room for advancement. Mostly just involves keeping the client happy and administration work.Occasional Saturday work but will allow you to pick a day that works for you and vendor.


Everyone appreciates you, wage is pretty decent, RRSP Plans


Commute is far for me

Great overall Workplace but very disorganized operations

New account was terribly organized by transition and leadership have no clue how the processes should flow. We are now stuck in this and have to figure things out.

One of the best employer

A perfect workplace. I feel I'm appreciated by colleagues, managers and executives. Lots of development opportunities within the company. I recommend everyone to apply for a job @CBRE.

Average workplace.

Average corporate position. Depending on department, staying late is glorified while leaving at your designated time is frowned upon. Management is limited with what they can do because of the existing culture.

Great company

I loved my time at CBRE. Great team, good managers, and overall a proud company to work for. They were understanding, and kind. I see some negative reviews on here but I think they need to be taken with a grain of salt.. the company offers plenty of room for advancement. Highly recommend CBRE.

Good place to work

Building rounds and routines , Follow-up on work orders,most of the jobs are pretty routine expectations but you have to also be able to adjust to change in the workplace. Being able to communicate with your co- workers is very important as you sometimes will have to cover their calls so you should have a basic knowledge of their job duties.


Flexible work conditions


On-call requirements, can be trying in mid-winter conditions, middle of the night.

Decent place to work

Great Real Estate team to work with. I left for personal reason, otherwise I would still be there. Close to downtown restaurants and Public Gardens, underground parking available.


Lots of on the job perks

Good people, non flexible work schedule

Corporate culture that like to send out communication to boost morale and appreciation. Very clear hierarchy of org chart and very little room for self initiation outside your suppose role, unless you make it clear in your stretch goal to work on other things and get the manager support to assign those tasks to you as part of long term training. Very inflexible work schedule, it’s either half day off or a full day off, nothing in between.

Good place to work.

Great place to work. Relaxed, but you have to manage your time well. Lots of perks like frequent team lunches. Team oriented. Not a lot of flexibility in work hours. This was before the pandemic, so not sure who much it's changed since.

Great Place To Work

Great place to work, with very capable and talented colleagues. Collaboration is encouraged and rewarded. Fair compensation. Management caters to client needs, which causes some last minute headaches. But overall, great place.


Flexibility, innovative tools, suportive staff/management


Mediocre management when it comes to organization, although mostly during COVID.

Great Company, but felt overworked

Started with three pm’s in the office, they laid off one, one left on stress, and I was expected to carry the load of three. They didn’t get me any help until I gave 6 months notice and then they waited for the last month. In between it was just bandaid solutions which actually created more work.


Great co-workers


Very long hours

A dated, sexist work environment

The Ottawa office is not very well positioned within Ottawa, being out of downtown and where most clients want to meet. Management and male employees are unfortunately sexist and allow sexist and homophobic remarks to be made without taking any action. The most difficult part of the job is definitely the people - they aren't warm or welcoming and it's not an inclusive work culture. Management don't care about retention, and try to squeeze the most out of employees for the least amount of money.

Not Recommended for Support Staff Professions

Your experience as an employee with CBRE is highly dependent on the team you work with within the office, and whether you are sales/support. With great benefits and a strong starting salary, it is an appealing opportunity to get early work experience - but turnover is very high. Do not expect support from management if you are a support employee. There is little opportunity for advancement, and not modern in terms of workplace culture.


Good benefits, good starting salary. Lots of employee culture initiatives like free lunches.


Low respect for support employees, high turnover rate, unprofessional management, low advancement opportunity
