    I have been working at Sotheby's International Realty full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Our brokerage manager was really wonderful- but experience from brokerage to brokerage differs greatly, as does the company culture. Overall, Sotheby's works hard to establish a luxury brand- and agents are able to use this as leverage in competitive, high-end markets.

    Cons

    Marketing for agents seems out of touch and emphasized the company too much. Marketing materials are rarely malleable and always push the company over the individual agent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing directors need to consider needs of end users actually using marketing materials- a very important element of our business.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sotheby's International Realty.

    Interview Details

    I responded to a blind advertisement in the local newspaper. The job description was fairly accurate to the position that was being interviewed for. A phone interview with the corporate office was followed by an inperson interview with local management. The next step was negotiation with the corporate HR department in regard to salary. A formal contract process was completed by mail prior to start date and followed by a mix of in-person and web based orientation programs for company policy, certifications (ethics, sensitivity, etc), and benefits selections.
