    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible schedules, open door policy, family setting, group events, philanthropy policy to give back to community

    Cons

    Increases can be based on the market fluctuation. Realtors are valued and occasionally W2 staff feel forgotten, some old-school leadership from the top. slow progress for important transitions, every decision needs a committee. Male dominate leadership for a reason

    Advice to Management

    Remember the value of the hourly staff, appreciate is there but including them in the importance of the business would be great for their moral. Evaluate pay scales and re-distribute the wages equally for positions. Open up to listening to staff and their ideas. Trust their ideas and opinions, they work the jobs.


  2. If you work hard, very good

    Pros

    The best thing is only having to work a half day before a major holiday.

    Cons

    Mgmt can't make a decision and stick with it. Whoever knows someone higher up or 'screams' the loudest wins. No consistency in processes.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision and stick with it. Reviews and raises are a joke, thanks for doing a fabulous job here's your $0.10/hr raise. Please provide some incentive besides the candy bowl and the occasional donuts.
