    Pros

    Flexible hours, helpful colleagues, your paycheck is based on your work ethic. Executives are down to earth and supportive.

    Cons

    No health insurance or benefits. You are an independent contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pass on more incentives for clients and ways to increase or commission

    Pros

    Great learning environment with people willing to help you out. The agents are the ones who will take care of you.

    Cons

    Low pay if you aren't an agent. Of course priority is the agent. Luckily agents take care of the people that take care of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some recognition to the people that help out your agents.

    I worked at Crye-Leike full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some advantages of Crye-Leike are the systems already in place. They offer website, 1-800-hotline numbers, laser printing, office space, conference rooms with a desktop pc and some sales tips/training. They boast the relo and referral network -see cons.

    Cons

    There's no free ride! It has been a few years for me but average cost to be affiliated with Crye-Leike was $125 per month (maybe more now). Harold Crye and Dick Leike are great people and business owners. They are a business though and each of these services come with a premium pricetag. Cha-Ching! I think it is fair to say for most agents commission splits are 70/30 with ability to flex up throughout the year with more sales but many do not get to the flex point. If you take the relocation and referral network deal, go ahead and hold your hands high in the air, the commission split is near robbery!

    Bottom line, if you are looking for "easy" then Crye-Leike may be for you. If you are on a tight budget, I would suggest a company that offers no monthly fee and a low commission split. Buy/set up the same services for yourself and save a little more there. It takes a little more on the front end but drops to your bottom line -rather than Crye-Leike's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand it is good to remain positive but it should always be well balanced with a good dose of reality.

    Amateur IT dept with worthless middle management.

    I worked at Crye-Leike

    Pros

    Honestly, nothing is appealing about this place. This place is full of pretentious real estate agents that think they are important.

    Cons

    Worthless CIO that cares more about shopping than being a leader. Lack of training and advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people.

    Pros

    Job to work balance was great. Didnt have much problem taking time off when needed. The people were nice for the most part

    Cons

    Poor pay. Nearly no benefits. They are in a constant pay raise freeze so while you work there never expect any raise.

    If you want to lose everybody good, continue to underpay and underfund benefits.
