    Pros

    job security, health insurance benefits, 401K, holidays.

    Cons

    too much micro management. I feel like a disposable commodity.

    Advice to Management

    Reach directly to your lower tier employees and take our advice. You are completely detached from us and it is making everything difficult.

    Pros

    Best training for recent college graduates or those looking to break into the commercial real estate industry
    Best in the industry training for associates (brokerage)
    Great managers for entry level associates

    Cons

    Long term career looks bleak due to nepotism and dominance of top brokers. Many mid-level brokers get treated unjustly and pushed out of deals that they have worked on for months/years and are rightfully theirs due to a Vice Chairman+ level broker edging their way in. Management often considers the production levels of individuals more so than the facts of the situation in internal conflict cases.
