    Agents aid in each others' success; management & SR leadership tend to have favorites. Still a great experience!

    I worked at Allen Tate as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, close knit group. Agents all root for and aid in each others' success, eager to teach and learn from each other. Management wants you to succeed and always looking for ways to encourage, motivate, education, inspire, and equip you to make it happen. Company absorbs the cost of many things so agents aren't nickel and dimed.

    Cons

    The majority of management and senior leadership are a bit behind the times in this digital age and it seems are always feeling the pressure to play catch up. Management and senior leadership tend to funnel leads to a select few, who are already quite successful, while new agents struggle to get their business off the ground and gain momentum. Deals on commission structure tend to be made with successful or experienced agents. The office environment can be a little distracting at times, and in a field where there isn't much structure (its up to each agent to find what works best for them), this can be detrimental.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help brand new agents form a regimented structure while they are learning the ropes and getting established. Otherwise, its much too easy to be so flexible that they never build a good foundation to stand on.

    Consider starting a program to give new agents (maybe all provisional brokers at the very least) a more hands on "real life" learning experience. Assign new agents to a "mentor" agent that meets a certain level of experience or qualifications. New agents should closely shadow mentor for 6 months- almost like an assistant or an intern. This type of learning experience would be invaluable. This program would have strict requirements for the new agents in order to continue, as well as perks for the mentors in order to make it appealing for them to teach new agents. There should be a pool of mentors waiting to take on new agents so that all new agents are learning from their mentor from day 1. Management should study all participants and be ready to make recommendations on pairings that are a good fit and will bear the most fruit.

    Share the love. Assign leads to ALL agents.

    I knew an agent that was working with this office, she helped me get my interview with the office manager. Office manager was very nice and easy to talk to. Interview was relaxed one on one. I was hired on the spot and shown my office. I was signed up to take training the next week. Training is very good and I felt prepared to do my job.
