    Pros

    Being able to create my own income and working my own hours. I don't have a ceiling nor am I forced to start at a specific time.

    Cons

    The expense to continue marketing is a con if what you are spending money on is not producing. The other slight negative is, if you don't work you don't get paid and a typical closing takes 30-45 days so you don't get paid until then.

    Pros

    Keller Williams is a great company

    Cons

    Keller Williams is commission only

    Advice to Management

    The market centers need to have more support staff on hand to support the agents. A great example is the market center located in Barrington, IL

    Pros

    Keller Williams offers great Profit sharing opportunities that no other real estate company offers. They also offer one of the best splits with the agents. at 70/30 which after you pay in so much you cap and get to keep the rest of your checks.

    Cons

    If you are a brand new agent then Keller Williams is probably not the best fit for you. They have decent training but it does not really compare to a lot of the other companies and how they train their new agents.

    Fantastic training programs, great cooperative and success culture, tons of online/offline resources for agents.

    Cons

    None as far as the industry goes.

    Advice to Management

    Each office is run independently so each office has different management to a certain point.

    Pros

    I enjoyed my work, as well as my supervisor. My supervisor was different than my manager. So I appreciated her buffer from time to time when it came to some things my manager would say that I may or may not have understood. There is not much else positive I can say about working at UMUC, as it was not a very enjoyable place to work, nor did they give me benefits, even as a "student" employee, even though I was not a student attending that school They did not tell me it was a student position. So at the end, when they said my term was up because it was a student position, I was very confused, because I wasn't a student.

    Cons

    When it came to letting people go, they one day fired someone, and had them leave immediately, but for no reason. When it came to letting me go, they gave me the impression that I would be staying, but at the end said they needed someone with more experience, and yet they hired someone with less experience who was incompetent once I was gone, per the complaints of former coworkers of mine. The manager that I had was very hostile and insensitive to some of my coworkers, as well as myself. She walked right over them, and didn't seem as competent and well-rounded in her position as a manager should be. The environment was often tense within the office, and I did not feel comfortable there after a while.

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to employees, you need to continuously give them critiques so they know what to change and what is good about their work.

    Pros

    Training is great for a brand new agent. You go through one month of training for four hours a day. Other agents are helpful with support and advice. Split seems to be comparable to other brokerages.

    Cons

    Real estate is always tough starting out, so don't expect to make anything your first six months, maybe even your first year. But Keller Williams does provide the information needed to succeed
