Monopoly within the industry but not much of a SF based company...

Pros

Decent amount of opportunities for those that are willing to relocate and commit 100% to the company. There is a variety of job offerings and career location options from Washington, DC to San Francisco, CA. Deep pocketed company that will provide equipment and travel expenses and company credit card. There is structure and stability.

Cons

Not much of a Silicon Valley company. Values are the polar opposites, blue chip vs. start-up. The culture is motivated by fear and hope. Management is slow to react unless its from Andy Florence (CEO). 100 sided interest are at stake when new projects are underway, from mid-level mgmt, upper mgmt, lower level sales people to sr. level sales...too many heads are butting and everyone thinks they're right. Not much synergy within the organization. Too much politics and ass kissing.

Advice to Management

Employees will not stick with a company if the grass is greener on the other side. Increase transparency and compensate based on the work.

    Pros

    Location, office design, free snacks..

    Cons

    Micromanagement, impossible metrics, unrealistic goals changing ever 5 minutes, shady practices, backstabbing inexperienced managers (most not all).. being great at your job is not enough for these people you've gotta be willing to kiss a lot of **** to succeed..

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting inexperienced children to managerial position--if you must, at least put standardized practices in place to hedge against their stupidity. Make training more rigorous by requiring researchers to read a book or two on CRE and test them on the info.. that will significantly improve the quality of your data..
