Company reviews
"Horrible account "
Former EmployeeTechnician
The worst company I’ve ever worked at. Their all about numbers not quality and definitely not safety, the say they are but that let way to much go. To much management, middle managers offer no experience and could care less about your safety. They allowed techs to work on electrical and HVAC with no knowledge of what they were doing.

"Buen ambiente de trabajo"
Current EmployeeTécnico/a en mantenimiento
Una empresa en la que aparentemente apuesta por la motivación del empleado, pero realmente eres un número y solo importan los ratios de productividad.

"Room for growth "
Current Employeerme
At CBRE we are consistently growing as a company creating a lot of opportunities to take your career to the level you desire. The access to learning and safety content is very extensive and useful.

"Need procedures in place at sites so Engineer knows what he has to do usually new site and no one knows very unprofessional"
Current EmployeeMobile Electrical Engineer
CBRE is fantastic to work for if you just walk into a building do nothing keep away and go home. If you want to do it properly you have to a have a file at each site for PPM and also for reactive work then you will be able to keep within the law and trace all work. It should be easy to set up accounts with exsisting contractors as this will help use people familiar on site and reactive time will be short. Managers should go to each site at least once every two weeks to see what they can do to clear any outstanding issues.
