CBRE vs JLL culture?

I recognize these two are more or less interchangeable, just depends on the specific market/city you're in

What is the difference of them both culturally in the office? Can someone who has worked at both or has some insight speak to their contrasts?

To give anyone the slightest chance at answering this accurately you're going to need to post the city.

both of these are HUGE firms, I've never worked for either, but have very close friends who have. I'd say all super dependent on the market, team, line of business etc. Or even where/when they joined by merger or whatever (like how do you know if a JLL person came from HFF? ..... They will tell you).

Me personally, I would pick NYC because the professional growth you will achieve there will be unmatched.

Work at one of these firms at the office of one of these locations you inquired about. From the people I've talked to within the firm that jumped around office locations (within the same firm), they say each office is very very different in personalities and culture.
