    Pros

    They provide you with effective marketing material to build your business. Sales job where the name of the game is prospecting and building the sales pipeline.

    Cons

    It all depends on the mentoring/coaching you receive from management.

    Disappointing experience working at Century 21.

    I worked at Century 21

    Pros

    The support staff was very helpful in supporting and explaining the back office side of the transactions even though they were over worked and poorly compensated.

    Cons

    This franchise had high franchise fees for every transaction they process regardless of the amount of the contract. Also, even though the broker claimed they were a non-competing broker, they directly competed.

    I have been working at Century 21 for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management is very supportive and helpful when getting started. Training is excellent and allows for learning in many different categories related to both Real Estate and making the best use of technology. C21 certainly ranks well against other Real Estate companies.

    Cons

    All the courses in the world do not make up for real experience. It can be difficult getting those first few transactions under your belt without a few stumbles. This can eventually turn a Con into a Pro. Another Con can is that start-up time can be tough, especially in a down market, when there is no income earned other than commission; however, this is more a statement about the industry than this company. The only other Con is that Benefits are not provided.
