Overall Good Experience

Indeed featured review

The team was great. The only feedback would be the slamming of calls. It could be difficult to work on tasks when you are overbooked eith meetings constantly

Great career starter and room for growth

Even though I joined CBRE later in my career, it has helped me obtain skills and experiences that only a large company can offer. From stretch assignments, to learning and training, i have grown immensely in 8 years, Good pay, good benefits and first in class colleagues and management.

Some contract are good some are not the one I got was not and transfers were not even an option.

Completely remote once hired never saw my manager in person for 6 months at a time. My contract was with a box store. who never got on board with CBRE doing their work.


work from home


No support given by manager and manager skills were very poor.

Very Toxic Environment

Managers are manipulative and it is clear the client is always the priority. You will always be a cussed of under performing In effort to incentivize you to meet unrealistic goals and give free labor. You will be told you are the under performer and constantly harassed to produce more work. The line is always shifting. There is no real structure. Everything is geared towards guilting you to work harder without overtime pay or incentives. People will complain about their manager and NOTHING WILL BE DONE! The work itself is rewarding but the leadership is lacking significantly.

Great culture, high turn over rate

After the interview, I was very excited to work at CBRE. Afterwards, it was a nightmare. Client services assistant was more of a person assistant role, than a graphic coordinator role as they make it seem.


Great Culture, very inviting and strong brand


Personal assistant, hours vary depending on broker

Good Team, Poor Management

People great to work with. Always willing to help out. Management is in the Needs Improvement category. Unwilling to listen or change, maybe a little scared.

Great place to work, but there is lots of pressure. Too few people doing too much work. Opportunities for growth and lots of learning on the job. Good place to work.

Love it here

Awesome place to work, benefits could be better. Management is stellar co workers are stellar. Wish I could work here forever. Unfortunately they lost the contract where I am now. I'd follow them if I could

Relaxed and boring work

Chill job but little room for growth / learning new transferable skills - mostly grunt work and quarterly report writing. You'll leave the job as you came in, just knowing a little more about commercial real estate. Most exit opps are moving and working with a team as an analyst, but that's more grunt work as well. If you're interested in the industry it can be a good job to get into to learn the space.

Good Place to Work

I enjoyed my time at CBRE. Good work environment and work life balance. Great pay and benefits. Management was great, helpful and understanding. Overall I had a good experience with CBRE. My commute was the reason I left.

Good company and okay pay. Managers not so much

Great company to work for. Manager and upper management.. not so much. Making their own policies as they go along. Don't really care about you as an employee.

Good place to be but very limited when it comes to Health and Safety

No clear answer on what technician is allowed to do or not,so much grey area.Management doesn’t want to provide you with clear instructions nor safe environment to do your job .Double standards across the board.If it comes out of company’s pockets it’s not happening.


Working schedule

No work life balance and underpaying

No work life balance as you have no control over your schedule. Underpayed for the efforts you put in. Sometimes management cannot help you get something that make you happy

Good for long term emloyment

I like this company, the teams, their culture and work ethics. Good also for those who want to start their career. In my 1st year of employment, i did a several position with interesting task. From being the maintenance technician, to building operator to nuilding engineer and then currently as facilities coordinator. I have a supporting manager and teammates who are very supportive to me and help me achieve my goals. I am working now for my next career advancement.

Interesting Experience-Learned Much about Project Management

It was a large company that felt small. You did not feel like just a number! It was a great step in my career, and I learned so much about PM, contracts, bidding and controls

Good company, environment depends on account

Depends on which account you are on, the account I was on paid quite low. Company culture was okay, nothing to brag about. I would recommend working here to others.
