Cushman & Wakefield is a growing company working to embrace and foster a more diverse and inclusive culture. We are a large company so some policies, though a push in the right direction, take time to develop. I am confident that current leadership is committed to creating a better work environment and increasing engagement for both men and women. That being said, depending on who is your supervisor can change the experience as woman employee and what department you are in. The Brokerage department isn't inclusive of women. There are still great lengths to go to empower women in a very corporate environment but overall Cushman & Wakefield has been a positive work environment.

    It very much depends on the position you are in as to what your flexibility is like. It is much more flexible on the brokerage side of things.

Commercial real estate, as a whole, is a male-dominated field. Difficult to get foot in door, but once you are established, there are lots of opportunities.

    Able to work from home.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    None taken

    New maternity leave policy of 6 weeks of "two year average earnings" - but if commission employee, this is equivalent of $960 a week (equivalent of $48k per year). Most people in a commission role would have average earnings well above this. 6 weeks only if at the company more that a year; 4 weeks if under a year.

It's important you align yourself with the right team. Everything is pretty much determined by the specific senior broker you work with or for.

    Work life balance is hard to achieve if you want others to respect you. Technically, there aren't policies in place for brokers but the expectation is that you are there 10+ hrs a day.

    Maybe. If there are existing women in management roles within your specific office or on your team.

Senior Analyst

For women on the brokerage side, there's definitely a lot of opportunity; for someone in a salaried position, there is definitely less room for growth. Overall, there's good people that work at the company, but management definitely has a ways to go before I would say it's creating an operational firm.

    Would need to improve compensation, investment in the company as a whole, but particularly with professional development and technology, and create a better management structure than what is being put in place post merger.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends on the role the other woman would be seeking.

Make sure to cultivate mentors in the company that can guide you through the heavy politics.

    Maybe. Depends on the role you're being hired for. Women tend to be in certain roles but are unable to move up in the hierarchy

I would tell her to prepare herself because it's like stepping backwards in time. There are NO women in top level positions, only men. In addition, all the women that were in higher positions were let go or left because they felt they were being pushed out.
