    I have been working at CoStar Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Elementary introduction to basic commercial real estate terminology and industry players. Glorified call center, but it's exposure for college grads to what the corporate world demands (dress code, etc.).

    Cons

    Outside of navigating a culture of petty politics, misleading managers, and insignificant corporate drones, this position requires zero strategic thinking. If you came to Washington to make any impact on society and/or to work on interesting projects, avoid this company.

    In fact, the research "metrics" turn otherwise intelligent, capable individuals into paranoid robots, conditioned to game the system rather than to add value to CoStar's clients. Naturally, this system is self-defeating and leads to horrible data quality.

    To that point, the "projects" are more about the appearance of getting work done than actually accomplishing meaningful, value-add research. Not all managers are created equal, and beware of the more tenured folk, as they treat RAs as though they're competing in a high school popularity contest. Morale is astonishingly low, as fear and intimidation are the primary levers for behavior modification. If building an actual career is not your thing, and everything else is equal, my advice is to work for the feds -- at least there you get to telecommute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nope. Nelson point and laugh.
