    Pros

    The only pro was I got 6 months worth of paychecks without any hassle BEFORE they started bouncing. Yes... I'm talking about YOU, C21 - KEY in Friendswood, tx!

    Cons

    Where to begin? How about the lies they tell to get employees/agents? Bouncing checks? Letting people go without fault. Cheating. Stealing. Stingy.... I could go on but I won't.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up! Pay your employees fairly!

    Pros

    Never boring and lots of different people. Hours were great! Pretty accommodating for employees with families.

    Cons

    Low pay. Poor management. Not appreciated for hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees how you would like to be treated! Pay attention to the employees that really work hard and are dedicated and figure out the ones who are worthless.

  9. Sales and production is the only thing that counts. You had better love prospecting or don't bother.

    Pros

    Good support and training. Large international presence.

    Cons

    Its real estate sales. No matter how much they prattle about 'quality service' you don't get paid or rewarded for it. It helps to be a bit of a narcissist. It can take years to get established. If you love sales and would do it even without getting paid. Go for it. You'll do great.

    Pros

    The office environment with real estate agents provides a light hearted and energetic environment. The majority of people working around under 45, so it really help with molding a great culture.

    Cons

    Being clocked for arriving at work. If you are a couple minutes late, that does not bode well at all with management. Starting and stopping projects at the drop of a hat, unclear deadlines, and overwhelming praise is usually placed on one or two specific people. If management is unhappy with you, nothing is said to you.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on whether you want to be an owner or a manager. Performing both is a true dis-service to your employees. The result, more often than not, is lack of communication. Ultimately placing blame on the employee. With very little experience outside of real estate, it is difficult for management to understand what is and is not appropriate when communicating with employees. There are multiple training and coaching seminars that are dedicated to employers, I would highly suggest management attend these programs.
