    I worked at Cassidy Turley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If they need you (i.e. to fill a position) they'll hire very quickly. Ability to work almost completely autonomously.

    Cons

    Very few methods for advancement. Little to no crossover for line of business training. Management seems decentralized with middle management being disorganized. Seems to be no strategic vision passed down to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mimicking your closest competitors at the expense of your current employees is not necessarily a solid business plan. Try to diversify the company and do what your competitors aren't doing. Invest in technology and alternate lines of business with your existing people.

    I worked at Cassidy Turley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone works - there are no slackers. Benefits are good and they are always hiring. Growing company.

    Cons

    NO sympathy for those who work more than 45 hours / week. If you resign you LOOSE ALL your accumulated days off! Management doesn't care - there are more to fill your shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bragging about how well you are doing at the meetings when you are giving nominal raises.

    Pros

    Awesome work environment- ball busters. Commercial real estate pros looking for fast turn around and the ability to take initiative. Great learning experience

    Cons

    It's a tough environment if you are not able to be a self-started and manage yourself. Environment where you need to jump in and teach yourself. Nothing big to complain about.

    Overworked and underpaid

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cassidy Turley

    Pros

    The people and culture here are great. However, there is definitely a look to the place and not much diversity. The environment is mostly people in their 20's, but managers and higher are late 20's and up.

    Cons

    Everyone is made salaried pretty quickly because the higher ups know that you will be working a lot of hours. No overtime pay since you're salaried. You're expected to do the work of three people in one day and the goals that are set for you are unreasonable. Very few discount programs and major perks offered. Don't believe the hype of this being one of the best places to work. You get bombarded with the e-mail to vote constantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people in each department to lower turnover. People are getting burned out really quickly. Before negotiating each client contract talk to those on the account and see what needs to happen. Quit focusing solely on client happiness while neglecting your own employees.
