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.
My interview was very unprofessional, I was interviewed by a guy (A) not really asked much about work more personal things which i found uncomfortable, then he looked through my passport and questioned me about why i had been to certain countys, i was then interviewed by (z) he was more interested in his phone then what i was saying.i found the whole ordeal very unprofessional and refused to work there
Good company to work for but a bit overwhelming for contractor. Man-management could be better. Work place culture is managable for a season consultant but someone with less experience will struggle to adapt
Been working for Cushman & Wakefield 10 years in the same role. Both HR and management are completely unsupportive. No help with career progression. Won’t pay for any relevant courses to support your role, yet insist you do stupid inappropriate automated courses that don’t benefit you at all. Each year we get a letter in the post informing us how well the company are doing but end the letter off telling us we won’t be getting a pay rise. Whenever senior management come to site, we are never introduced and they are kept away from us. Since I’ve been looking for similar roles in other companies it’s made me realise how underpaid I am. Definitely wasted 10 years of my life.

It has been 12 years since I worked at Cushman & Wakefield but it used to be a good firm to work for. I cannot really any further on what it is like to work there now.
I was located in the Bristol office and it was a very interesting place to work as i was in the same office as a number of senior Directors, who were more down to earth than less senior people i have worked with in the past. They all had a strong work ethic though also knew when to relax and enjoy sport or socialising.
my hours were late finishes
the working environment at Cushman and wakefield is geared towards its key professionals - chartered surveyors. Very little recognition is given to the supporting professionals be they accountants, HR, credit and risk, operations managers and the like. Long hours, poor pay for the sector and little recognition are to be expected. I didn't enjoy working here, and despite scoring notable successes in centralising UK credit functions, and then EMEA functions for credit i got zero reward for it. I dont beliee there has been much improvement since i left.
opportunity to gain experience in the sector is unparallelled
dont expect a bumper pay packet unless youre a surveyor
When I first joined the business I loved the atmosphere, great colleagues, efficient systems. Since the disastrous and naive decision to outsources the finance processes and make lots of staff redundant the company is no longer recognisable.
Great loyal staff, modern building, decent staff benefits
Outsourcing has proven disastrous, redundancies, no progression.
Found the company great at start of employment when it was lnown for dtz as new management got involved from hilton hotel the management went all over the place
Good tenants and buildings
Low wage, standing too often and get treated like S***or doing the co mpqny so many favours
It's a very busy department so time management is key. Following the recent merge with DTZ we have various legacy clients/tenants which provides daily challenges, so it's always satisfying to overcome these.
Never ending queries
It's a good place to work, good atmosphere and good benefits program, as expected from a big company. However, it suffers from a lot of in fighting and bureaucracy, and a lack of advancement for those of us which come in without property qualifications.
Good salary and benefits
Poor advancement, little management
