    First off this is what you do after the Thieves guild main quest line…

    Vex and Delvin give out sidequests (jobs) all over Skyrim. There are Four main capitals you want to worry about, Solitude, Windhelm, Whiterun, and Markarth Goto Vex and Delvin and choose any job you prefer but you only need to complete Five in each of those Four cities.

    Each time you have done Five in any one of those particular cities Delvin will spawn a special mission for you in that city to restore the Thieves Guilds honor there. Do that mission and stop accepting mission to that city while concentrating on the remaining cities, til you have completed all Four of the special missions.

    You will then be presented a special ceremony in the Cistern declaring you a Master Thief

    Congrats you have restored the Thieves Guild to its former glory.
    Update: CAN be completed before main story line is finished

    I've completed the Thieves Guild main quest line, but I don't remember having the city presented where a 'job' will take place. Isn't it presented as a type of job, like a shill job, but you don't know what hold it is for until you get the quest in your queue?

    And is there a way to remove a quest from your queue other than going back to a saved game?

    true
    and if its in a city you already have done, then just quit it by going back to the person that gave it to you, and retry til you get the one you want.

    I don't believe Riften counts as one of the area's you need to do 5 quests in.

    I did only 5 of Markarth, Windhelm, Solitude and Whiterun and their respective special quests to get this achievement.

    Also note: I had to finish the Thieves Guild MAIN QUEST LINE before I had the oppertunity to start the final quest for this achievement - Under New Management.

    ok I admit you don't get a Special quest in Riften your main quest will not pop if you havn't done at least 5 in Riften too.

    Thank you for this. I was getting angry at the guild cause I got no respect after finished the main quest. My fellow thieves did not recognize me as much and my Nightingale partner kept telling me he was too busy to talk to me. Hell Saphire was still not even telling me her real name! I was planning on returning and killing all the ungreatful lot of them.

    Do you get anything cool after restoring the guild to it's former glory? any bonuses, a lot of gold or weapon?

    No, but getting a bedlam job and a sweep job in the same town cut down on time needed to complete, cause you do two jobs at same time with same crimes
