What you see is not what you get--tread carefully and do your research

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at CoStar Group full-time for less than a year

ProsColleagues are wonderful and very hard-working professionals; state-of-the-art building; good benefits; nice location in downtown DC; from entry level roles there is a lot of career advancement opportunities; your chances of success at CoStar are greater if you do not work in the HQ location

ConsIt's like working for "big brother" - you are watched constantly; senior leadership does not trust it's employees; there is no work-life balance, you will be worked to the bone; the culture is one of fear and constantly moving targets

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management is unwilling to change; unfortunately any advice would fall onto deaf ears...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
