Real Estate Manager (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – 7 March 2018
over the years CBRE has gone form amazing to concerning. Lost a lot of great talent along the way due to pay raise refusals, lack of leadership, and burned bridges. However, the job is mostly what you make it. Requires more than 40 hours a week to even meet an expectation.
Real Estate Manager (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – 23 February 2018
Forget about having a personal life. EVP wanted us to work 70-80 hours a week and not have anytime for family or days off. They overload you with accounts and have to be in 10 places at once. Lied about getting me support. I did not take a single day off while I worked there and had to come in at night to do client work since I did CBRE paperwork all day.
Associate Real Estate Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – 7 February 2018
CBRE puts a lot of effort into touting its values and standards, and emphasizes how much the people who work there are a vital part of their success. However, the company is just too big to be flexible in its procedures. In order to create a consistent level of quality, there are a lot of policies, procedures and platforms that add a lot of extra work. The company tries to instill its culture with slogans rather than by really connecting with the people who work for them. I really enjoy the people I work with but don't really have time to get to know them on more than a superficial level. CBRE is great at promoting from within and the managers are committed to helping staff grow in their careers. However, the mandatory training is superficial and designed to get everyone to the lowest acceptable level. This is a good company for the right person. If it isn't a perfect fit, the organization isn't going to adapt to meet your needs.
Assistant Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – TX – 30 November 2017
Management is a TOTAL JOKE, at least at my office. When I brought up concerns about my manager, they were suddenly out to get me. Ended up fired for something that probably should have been a write up at most.
I was already applying for new jobs before termination.
Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – 7 November 2017
Told we were free to run our portfolio as it needed to be. We then would be verbally or emailed and told it was all wrong. Told I couldn’t be trusted because of one error. No opportunity to correct error or defend oneself. I think this could have been a perfect fit but the manager micro managed your every move. They also lied about providing training and being there to help. The manager was not willing to help their staff be successful. Worst manager I have ever worked for.
Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – 13 October 2017
Supervisor was rude and had no problem screaming in your face or cussing you out. If you had to take off for family things, it was always a problem. Never listen to your opinion. Played favorites with employees,
REAL ESTATE MANAGER (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 1 September 2017
CBRE is a paperless company, so knowledge about technology is essential. This company has great training, and electronic devises. Learning about real estate and the potential for management is also offered. Any position in commercial real estate is a constant change, wherein no two days are ever the same. The workplace culture is very professional, not casual, and presentation is of most importance. The hardest part of the job is to learn all of the correct procedures, and the electronic requirements. As long as you are 'tech-savvy' this is a great place to work.
Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 27 April 2017
CBRE is the mother ship of Commercial Real Estate that provides every Real Estate Professional the training and potential to grow and move into a different role if desired. Provides long term potential to team and careers.
Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – 8 April 2017
I ended my career at CBRE in the property management division. This was during the Great Recession when companies/tenants were going bankrupt and turning in their keys. Very difficult to daily watch family business disappear overnight, building owners collapse, and a general depressing time.
Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – Village, VA – 20 December 2016
Hard working and demanding environment with tight deadlines. However, department staff are great to work with. CBRE provides multiple opportunities for training and industry education and hosts entertaining, quarterly networking opportunities for management teams and vendors to get to know each other.
The best part of the job are the people you work with and getting to know the service providers that help you with your properties.
The hardest part of the job is not having enough hours in the day to complete tasks, and having insufficient admin support on many occasions. It takes a long time for anyone to promote.
Company Values: RISE - respect, integrity, service and empathy. RISE notenforced during my employ
Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 3 August 2016
Compensation/Benefits comparable with competitiors. Training and education encouraged and supported. Management and job culture did not reflect company's values. Limited growth and contributions due to procedures.
Good benefits/compensation, education and training, beautiful class A office building with creative design and a garden roof, LEAD qualifications and process of certifications, professional and respectful co-workers
Managment and job culture did not reflect company values, limited opportunities: to think outside the box, explore alternatives, contribute and advance.
