Cushman Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Cushman & Wakefield plc is a global commercial real estate services firm. The company's headquarters is located in Chicago, Illinois. Cushman & Wakefield is among the world's largest commercial real estate services firms, with revenues of US$8.8 billion in 2019. The company operates from approximately 400 offices in 60 countries, has around 53,000 employees, and manages about 4.1 billion square feet of commercial space.
A former employee shared his/her opinion about working at Cushman & Wakefield on Indeed in June 2015:
"Work-life balance? Only if you're single it may not bother you. Heavy presentation work and fast-paced, non-stop office environment. Brokers treat you like an "Admin", not as part of their "team". 9-hour workday, not including lunch breaks. Come in early, stay late, doesn't matter since it's not appreciated. Pulled in too many directions. Management is top-heavy and mediocre at best. Managers could care less about you, you're just a number. Poor communication internally company-wide. Salary not commensurate with work. Benefits are average. PTO, Paid time off is pooled together, so sick, vacation, and personal all lumped together. Bonuses and raises are disgraceful for the number of people you support. Very little advancement unless you want to be licensed and play with the "big corporate white boys"."
Former Employee - Janitor/Cleaner says"The white privilege managers need to go they treat folks like slaves ."
Former Employee - Associate says"Toxic workplace in many of the offices."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Not a meritocracy- will cut people without regard for performance"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Old boys network. Men circle the wagons. A lot of reshuffling, nepotism while others get overlooked and unappreciated. No room for advancement"
Current Employee - Senior Accountant says"Accountants are very much over worked. Work life balance sucks with all the deadlines you have. Takinf a weeks vacation you work 50 hours the week before and 50 hours the week you return. Raises are less than inflation. 2020 no raise was given at all for our 2019 performance even though the company had 7billion in revenue. Property managers who you work with are like kings and queens. Accountants don't have any say and are mistreated compared to Property Managers, they get raises and bonuses while accountants barely get any raise."
Former Employee - Property Manager says"Expect to work 10-12 hrs a day, don’t complain you’ll get set up for termination."
Former Employee - Executive Assistant says"not a good work environment, do not recommend"
Former Employee - Transaction Coordinator says"Depending on your account, the workload (especially on the Jones account) was overwhelming 90+ deals. Lack of training. Unrealistic KPI’s. The account is so large that so many things get lost in translation. There is no incentive to negotiate. Compensation requires a majority of the staff to hold 2 jobs. High turnover. You can’t really utilize your PTO. I see a lot of burnout."
Former Employee - MHT says"Lack of leadership, Lackluster upper management, employer does not appreciate employees"
Current Employee - Associate says"The career path doesn't exist. Salary is way below the average for the industry. Lack of resources. You will hear the phrase "We don't have a budget for it right now" throughout your career. Health insurance is a joke. Outdated equipment and the worst IT help desk on the planet."
Building Engineer (Current Employee) says"The only reason i took the job was because i was told they were finally going pro union and had exciting programs.Instead they are hostile to the union and wiling to say anything to get people. The programs i thought would be there are laughed away along with any complaint. Before i arrived they went through 14 journey level engineers in 3 years.Now we are over worked, lowest paid in the city. if covid had not happened i would probably not be here...Oh and corporate does not care, they only care that they have the assets account.you get a low-end phone and all the accountability with out authority.no parking, forced regular Sat. work, no office admin all work goes to engineering to be assessed."
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"Management is awful. They don't care about your families and expect a ton of work for not much pay. Mostly men work there and its very chauvinist environment Don't expect to be treated fairly.long hours, no overtime"
Recycling Technician (Current Employee) says"This is by far the worst company to work for. They do not appreciate their employees. They take your vacation days and don't allow you to use them when you want to. Management sucks period. Management jobs are handed to people that should not be in management."
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says"Everywhere I have worked there is always at least two people (3 counting myself) who have worked there and loved it at first. Then once they (and myself) get to know the management and the politics that come with it, they quickly grow to hate both their job and the company. It's NOT a welcoming enviroment and I DO NOT recommend it."
Janitor (Former Employee) says"I worked for this company for several weeks, and never received a paycheck. Called human resources, and couldn't get a straight answer. Stay away from this company."
Records/Docket Specialist (Former Employee) says"Never work for this company because they have incompetent managers that doesn’t know or can’t help you succeed. Your job is not secure and they pay you by the people you know instead of the job that you were hired to does"
Lease Analyst- Legal Abstraction (Former Employee) says"Working at C&W on this account was very stressful. The management had poor organizational skills which reflected in almost every aspect of work. They treated their workers like robots, often making us over work without compensation. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy. I wish I had better things to say about them, but unfortunately that's not the case."
Receptionist (Former Employee) says"Working for this company C&W services was thee worst company that I’ve ever worked for never a happy moment since the day they got the contract I went through 4 receptionist and they hired staff before management absolutely no training and got in trouble almost everyday in which I train my self, you couldn’t take off work if needed to staff and managers was never understanding and always had negative edd backNoneMore understanding company and more flexibility"
Corporate Receptionist (Current Employee) says"Manipulating, controlling, humiliating, low paid, near-slavery. Don't allow to leave the desk, clean shave essential even if grows out same day. Trying to be a 8-star hotel which is absolutely irrelevant to the business they are working in."
Guest Services Representative (Former Employee) says"I worked for Cushman and Wakefield for a year, was promised Full time and benefits and never received them. My Manager severely wronged me and I took it to their HR Department and was told it was not their problem. I have never been treated with so much disrespect in my career by Cushman & Wakefield. I do not recommend working or buying from them."
Senior Property Manager (Current Employee) says"Management has no experience in leading teams, only cares about the bottomline. Staff are constantly worried about getting fired. If you are a high level functioning person avoid this company.NoneManagement is limited in abilities"
Facility Manager (Former Employee) says"The job over works you, management will not support you when it comes to the clients. This was the worst job I had ever had and it was due to management. Stay away from this place your better off at CBRE or JLL."
Cushman (Former Employee) says"Small office with gossip and back stabbing each other just to get ahead. Manager constantly throws you under the bus then lies and says it was your fault to HR and senior managers. Never in all the 25 years of working been treated so unfairly and horrible. Would not recommend to my worst enemy. Health insurance is the worst I've seen with super high deductibles, medications expensive, copay ridiculous and they barely paid for an ER visit, in network, and specialty doctor visits.Not many, hours were good and no overtimeMicromanaging, backstabbing, small office gossip, health insurance is the worst, pay is bad, no growth within company, HR will not help you and rarely do they call you back, answer phone or reply to email"
Property Manager (Former Employee) says"Typical day - working with self serving management Management - worst leaders ever Hardest Part of Job - Never met my Boss in 15 months Learnt - Nothing!"
Leasing Agent/Receptionist (Former Employee) says"Was terminated, called twice to see why no answer. In my opinion they terminated me because they did not want to train me. I was put onto the computer expected to know how to make contracts and leases with no prior experience and they knew when they hired that I had no experience I believe I got fired because they just did not waste their time training. Didn’t properly train Until a month into the job. But if you have no prior experience in this line of work I don’t even try to apply, they don’t even care about training"
Accounts Payable/Receivable Specialist (Former Employee) says"This company provides alot of promise and no potential unless you are a favorite. If you are a favorite you can get by with anything you want and show up for work or leave whenever you want. They don't even have the decency to their employees when letting them go as they will call you on the phone and let you know that you have been fired. How much respect does that show, you are just an object nothing more.they do have good benefitsThey are heartless as employers and work you for every bit of strength you have"
General Manager (Former Employee) says"You work very hard with not enough support. Talk about a stressful, deadline oriented administrative heavy gig! Yuck. I wouldn't work for this company again"
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says"If you a black man they won't give you a second chance if anything happens. I was fired and I had never been late, did my job in a timely manner, was never written up and work plenty of days after hours. They don't care about they employee's."
Building Engineer (Former Employee) says"Very corrupt, schedule is geared to favor friends,non exsistant management..if your desperate ,take the job but dont expect to be happy.there are good people who are as unhappy I was.NoneToo many to list"
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) says"Never work for these Americans. They have a low standards when it comes to work ethics. He said all the Canadian office were lazy and we lack the drive the Americans haveNoneUnder pay their employees"
Steve Watkinson says"We had the unfortunate misfortune of renting a warehouse in Bradford. Problem after problem. To top it all off after we vacated, they couldnt even have the decency to tell our utilities we had vacated (needed by british gas to close our account). We dealt with Andrew Llewellyn and I have to say a 6 year old child could do his job better. They still owe us money too from overpayments and also shorte'd us on our deposit back for no reason. We are pursuing through small claims."
may lock says"total ripoff artists! They called me to do work at a business I did the work submitted for payment six months later and a pound of paperwork they finally sent a check that was short by 7% they said they just take 7% off every invoice this company is a total joke do not do business with them!!!!"
Cindy Rubin says"We brought a tenant to one of their leases and never got paid our commission - they ignore us and make excuses, but it has been over 3 months."
Jason VDW says"I am not interested in helping you find such a facility: it is challenging to find a space that is cannabis-friendly. This has been my experience. You are welcome to contact other building owners and realtors. Best Regards, Kevin Volz Personal Real Estate Corporation Vice President, Industrial Sales & Leasing"
