    I worked at Coldwell Banker full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Zero for me, I commuted hours to this office daily and had to deal with idots all day long.

    Cons

    Committed almost 4 years of service without any pay increase, senior management only care about themselves especially the Director of Finance and CFO -Both now work together with a different company. You will receive zero recognition for your hard work and long hours, the culture and values of this office are awful....and always low on staff - if like myself you will be taking on roles of different departments with zero overtime pay....good riddance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice of your staff, and reward them for hard work
